HOME // DECOR: two shops to shout about

in my constant scouring of the internet for all of my online presences, i took particular note of two etsy shops today.

thegoodmachinery paints animals in unexpected and wonderful color combinations.



called “strange planet animals,” each one has a personality of its own.



i particularly like the ones with bits of metallic, like the puma above, or bits of neon, like this antelope.



i’m not sure why i’m suddenly so into neon colors, but it’s definitely true. my entire post on Apartment Therapy tomorrow is about neon holiday decor. the other shop i love on etsy right now is aprilawakening. she’s painting vintage textiles and adding a whole lotta neon love.



i really would like to buy a couple of items from each of these shops and create a beautiful little neon nook in my room.



it’s all inspiring me. i think i’m going to set out and get some gouache paint in florescent colors. i’ve already got a bunch of wood pieces for an ornament project for our first tree-i may relegate all artists to using hints of neon as well!



can our next collection of jewelry be bright? william?
