I was tooling around on Etsy.com in a mission to find some art for my house. I have this crazy thing I’m trying to do where the decor in each room of my house is dedicated to a specific country or portion a country or some theme related to a country. My kitchen is Italy (Tuscany) and my living room is Ireland. My bedroom is oriental since I couldn’t decide on a country. I’m still thinking on that one. My master bath is French and my main bathroom is supposed to be old British battle ships. Of course this is a slow process since this is quite an expensive project.
Anyway, I was thinking on the living room AKA Ireland. It is “my island” after all. I was finding mostly jewelry on Etsy and then I stumbled upon some great art. Every time I clicked on something it would be by the same artist. I loved all of her work. As a matter of fact I cannot decide which to buy!! I have been sitting here for over an hour starring at my walls and trying to envision the paintings there. The only problem is I don’t want it to look like an art gallery. I’m going to have to choose!!! It isn’t all Irish but it’s fantasy art. Check out her work at http://www.etsy.com/shop/EmilyBalivet and http://www.emilybalivet.com
