I have always had a love for things old and new. When I found this old, gold framed mountain view, I fell in love with it instantly. Nature has always been a way for me to connect with God and helped me feel calm and at peace. I grew up in a home surrounded by trees, so this old classic really spoke to me. I also love mixing modern pieces with old furniture that is filled with history of previous owners, Knicks and dings of people who loved the furniture before and the stories they could tell. With that being said, I love modern pieces, I love clean lines, I love seeing new art, and I love seeing a new twist on something old.
I guess you could say I was inadvertently inspired by the popular show, “Fixer Upper,” when I decided I wanted to try to include this art into something new. It has been in my nursery for four years now, and as much as I have changed the rooms, this picture has remained. It wasn’t until I found Society6.com that I was really able to bring this art to life the way I wanted to, with the help of other artists. I was like a child at the candy story feasting my eyes on so many possibilities. I was able to take my antique painting and find throw pillows, a blanket, and an incredible piece of fox art that brought the room together in a whole new way.
I literally scrolled through hundreds of options for art. The hardest part was narrowing down my favorites because there were so many. It is like a hunt finding the perfect equation of what art pieces would compliment another. Any piece of art you find on Society6.com helps to support the artist who designed the art and you can also turn it into just about anything you can imagine that would decorate your living space.
The first place we started when redoing the room was to replace our DIY vinyl triangles. They were well loved, so much so that my son peeled all of the triangles off the wall around his crib! *stinker. I wanted to take the look of shiplap and modernize it a bit with wide, sleek lines. Thank goodness my husband is a measuring genius, because I am sure I would have messed it up. I will be sharing a DIY on that later. This is what it looked like before: ouch.
I love the idea of shiplap, but I wanted to make the planks bigger with sleek lines to modernize the space a bit. Once I had a blank space to work with finding the perfect focal point was the goal.
And then it happened. Scrolling through dozens of outdoor, wilderness scenes I came across this beautiful fox. He didn’t compete with the painting, and yet there were fine details that made it the star of the room and cohesively marry my beloved retro painting. If you look really closely you can see pine trees in the fur of the “jumping fox.”
Now, when you find something that you really like on Society6 you can turn it into a throw pillow, a rug, a wall hanging, a t-shirt, wallpaper, framed art, or even a cell phone cover! So really, whether you’re looking for a clock or a new beautiful mural for your wall, Society6 will have a way to fill in any empty space that needs filling in a beautiful and unique way.
This wood tiles come in all different sizes, the smallest being a total area of 3’x3′, what I ended up picking out was a 4’x4′ because I really wanted it to fill out the space well. We made sure to make these pieces individually very secure with screws and 3M strips. I was considering doing a mural, which is a much cheaper option for a big impact, but I knew my son, “sticker picker” would definitely pull it down. This wood tile option gave the room the big impact without being one giant piece that I would worry about falling down. We made this EXTREMELY secure and I love the size and the impact!
Clever Fox pillow:
This fox!!!I love his clever little face. I think it brings a fun, playful effect into the room as it is for a little boy, and it simply makes me happy. I also thought it would be a throw pillow I would put anywhere in my house, I may just steal him! 🙂
Could you just die over the colors of this blanket? It is the softest material you can imagine, think minky fabric meets silk, and I love the dreamy effect of the blues. I decided to make this piece of art into a blanket so that it wouldn’t compete with the painting I already have. I loved bringing the blue into the bed and I think this will be a favorite taken all around the house.
This piece of art almost became my main focal point above the crib, but I decided to turn it into a pillow instead. I love the simple black and white of the pine trees, it is very neutral and would go well with so many different types of decor.
Within the Tides Pillow: Again, I love the blues that are pulled into the bed with this pillow! I love this pillow, it could go just about anywhere!
And this is the “After!” I love how it turned out!
Even Poppy loves his cozy new spot.
