i love seeing how talented people use their own creativity to create something beautiful in their home. burlington, vermont based artist carin lilly created this beautiful ‘imagine’ mural for her son amos’ room. carin designed the mural and painted it along with her husband, jess. carin based amos’ mural on the work of the late margaret kilgallen, who was interested in folk art, handpainted signs, and all things beautiful. when describing the imagery carin said, “i just wanted my son to wake up and smile at it everyday, hopefully absorbing inspiration.” the result is something so special that it never could have come from a box or kit. sometimes you just can’t beat handmade, diy artwork. thanks so much to carin for charing with us. i couldn’t resist adding her paintings in at the bottom, she’s a wonderful artist.

My good friends, always creative with their cozy but original living space at a Co-Housing village, commissioned a local teenager to paint a rainforest-themed mural in their new baby’s tiny room. What I loved about this was not just the amazing, inspiring environment that came from the project, but that the teenager was the son of a working muralist. And so, he got to start his portfolio working in the community. The cutest part was that he signed the mural (with his phone number!) in the corner of the room.

Meredith – that sounds fantastic! Such a nice idea, I would love to see a picture of it.
