Last spring, while we were preparing to do the (seemingly) annual exodus from one apartment to another, I came across the blog and shop of Shanna Murray. She makes decals, cards, stationary, and the like – and lest there be any doubt, she has no idea who I am, let alone that I’m writing this love letter of a blog post to her, so you can be sure that this is all untainted by freebies.
Her holiday cards are to die for as well – true to her style, they’re simple, elegant, and a little indulgent:
We love our wall decal so much (it hangs in our dining room) that it even
made a guest appearance in our engagement photos.
If you guys somehow don’t know that Olivia Leigh took them yet, I’ll
remind you again just because she’s that awesome and you really
should check out her blog.
I think the decal (which you can buy here) adds something special to our tiny little dining room. I love the warmth it lends to the apartment, and the fact that it doesn’t scream “I’m a decal! Look, I peel off!” – in fact, I’ve had several people ask me if it was painted on. So, from a totally geeky art and design lover, check out Shanna’s work! It’s amazing.
