Wendy: 1. This painting is by Ida Kolmire, the well-respected New Orleans artist. We were in New Orleans and had seen one of her pieces at a gallery; we asked to go to her studio, and went through everything she had available until we found one that was just right. | 2. I got this handmade blanket on my most recent trip to India. | 3. The vanity is actually two little pieces from Pottery Barn Kids. I had the glass cut to fit across them. | 4. The walls I just wanted to be fun. I think every house should have a sense of humor – something that makes you smile. I wanted this room to smile. | 5. This piece is by Jeri Burdick, a South Carolina artist who’s primarily known as a tile maker. She does beautiful murals made from 4x4 tiles.
