Joanna Baker for JVW Home…

The lovely Jeanette of JVW Home, a Texas-based interior design firm, reached out to me a couple of months ago in search of some illustrations to spruce up her already beautiful website.

After sharing ideas back and forth, we worked together to dream up two images featuring Jeanette and her assistant, Christin, designing away in their studio. It was so much fun choosing all the colors and details. I love how they turned out and am so excited to share them with you!

They recently debuted on Jeanette’s website here and here. Jeanette was amazing to work with and I highly recommend you check out her site! She has obvious talent and lovely taste in putting together a home. In addition to traditional design services, she also offers e-design… perfect for when you just can’t figure out how to rework your living room!

If you’ve got an idea in mind for a custom illustration, I’d love to hear it! Feel free to contact me… I’d love to work with you to create something special!

City Flowers…

I can’t stop instagramming all the gorgeous flowers that are finally starting to bloom! This is one of the best times to be in the city… the air is fresh, the windows are open, and you can pretty much wear what ever you want because it’s the perfect in-between temperature. Life is good…

Have a great start to your week!

Striped Curtains…

Striped Curtains DIYSo I’ve been searching for ways to upgrade our little apartment and came across these. They are the perfect way to make a statement and are in keeping with the BF’s two rules (no pink & no flowers!)

I bought simple curtains at Ikea and picked up 6 yds. of black cotton twill in the garment district. I chose to sew my stripes on instead of fusing them. It’s taking a bit longer than anticipated–lots of fabric in a very small space–but I hope to finish in the next couple of weekends.

Until then, my drawing desk is doubling as a sewing table. Living in New York sure is about making the most of your space!
