Custom Art With An Architectural Twist


Some of you know that I recently did a giveaway on my blog.  And, my friend, Gaylynn McBrayer, founder of La Montage – a “to the trade” studio in Lewisville – was the one who contributed the artwork for it.  It was by one of her amazing artists, Steve Taff.


When I went by her place to pick it up for the winner I, of course, had to meander through the showroom again and look at all the new wonderful goodies she had.


And, as usual, she did not disappointment.  There was incredible wall art by Steve as well as other fun “stuff” by some of her other artists….


Like these incredible books.



Are these freaking awesome or what?


Love ‘em!


Every piece in there is unique and interesting….


And incredibly creative.




How about these cool frames to display your photos in?



Did I say…….unique?


All of it – everything -  just amazing!


And, well, truth be told – so is Gaylynn!

Amazing Murals For Children’s Rooms And More


One of the coolest things I’ve stumbled onto recently as a designer is a website called Murals Your Way.   They offer incredible murals you can purchase for just about any space in your home or office.  I have highlighted the children’s rooms below, but the fun thing is you can do any type of space: kids, adults, office space, etc.  You have got to check out their website here.  They offer options to customize the size of your mural to fit your space from their preselected images – and they have lots and lots of great images to choose from.  But, what’s even more exciting to me is that you can upload your own images and have a wall size mural made.  I mean….. how cool is that????

Check out some of these wonderful children’s murals below and see if they wouldn’t invoke a certain feeling of enchantment for your little one.

To The Rescue

How much fun would these be for your kiddo?  Personalizing their space with their own unique interest. Fun, fun, fun!

And, what about these cityscapes for an adult space:

Or these beach scenes:

Or this relaxing daytime beach scene. 

How relaxing would it be to walk into a room with a wall size mural like this to greet you?

And, don’t forget, in addition to their selections you can upload your own.  Maybe a favorite vacation spot or a funny picture of your family or friends. Think of the fun you could have!

Fabulous Art Finds That Will Bedazzle Your Home And “Wow” Your Guests!


I wanted to share with you some fabulous art work at a local “to the trade” showroom called La Montage here in North Texas.   This studio is comprised of art from several different artists – each piece unique and reflective of the individual artist’s style.  They offer pieces off the floor or they can have pieces custom made.  Notice all the design details in each piece – the great use of color, movement, rhythm and all sorts of fun architectural touches to create the character and personality unique to each and every piece.  This is a great way to bring your own personality, style and character to your home or business.


Wouldn’t this make a fabulous Christmas gift for yourself or someone you love?  I mean… cool are these?!


How fun!  Notice all the different details used to create this art?  Love it!



Interesting, beautiful way to display your favorite pictures! 



Great for displaying on an easel or grouping together for a larger scale look. 


Painted canvas tapestries.  So cool!  A new twist on a traditional tapestry.

Did I mention they were unique?  I wasn’t exaggerating, was I?





They even have unique children’s art!  Too cute!









In addition to these beautiful pieces they offer much, much more, including traditional oil paintings matched with hand selected frames of your choice.

So treat yourself to a special Christmas gift of art this holiday season!
