I'm always on the lookout for two things: 1) unique decor pieces and 2) interesting and/or useful things to share on the blog. This week's post checks both boxes! 

 

Recently, on Instagram, I spied some of my favourite interior accounts posting eye-catching, vivid illustrations of rooms within their homes.

 

What could be more unique than personalized art depicting your home for your home???

I discovered that Maggie Stephenson was the talented artist behind these illustrations. 

 

 Below are some of my favourite Instagram spaces and their respective depictions by Maggie.

How about now?

Our living room/dining room. 

 

 

I was so smitten with her work, I had to have one of my own! Now our home is immortalized in a very special way with this unique keepsake. How fun! (Arguably, a bit narcissistic...but so fun!!!) 

 

This would also be an inspired way to commemorate a childhood home and would make for a thoughtful gift for parents or grandparents.

 

 

Isn't it gorgeous? I Love the soft, subtle colours and the detail!

 

 

This is where I've put it for now (need to get a more appropriate frame)...

 

 

But, I'm toying with the idea of putting it here:

 

 

 

I'm a sucker for all things meta, and it doesn't get more meta than displaying a little corner of your home up in that same little corner of your home!

If you want a beautiful piece of your very own, you can contact Maggie (she's incredibly sweet and accommodating) via her Instagram or  Society6 shop.  For under $100 (pricing depends on the project and is subject to change), Maggie can illustrate part of your home from a photo of your choosing.

 

 

Maggie Stephenson's a freelance artist who lives in Florida with her husband and son. She grew up in Poland and Germany, and credits her European roots, Eastern travels, and love for colour and nature for inspiring her work.
