CMH Studio  Purple Fairy Mural for Baby & Big Girl

This week I had the pleasure of painting “part two” of a fairy mural for a special little girl.  Three years ago I painted two fairies in baby Ella’s cozy little room, and when it was time for her “big girl room”, she needed a few more!  



Ella’s bed will be framed by the fairy with bows (above), and the second fairy greets you as you walk in the door!  I wish I could show you the whole room installed—she is getting Samantha bedding by Pottery Barn that will look amazing!   I used a polkadot ribbon border around the entire room to tie things together.  Believe it or not, the border took as long as the fairies!



CMH Studio  Butterflies in Paris Pillow by Cheeky Monkey Home

Hello!  I think I see some hints of spring today.  The snow is finally receding in Boston and the grass (albeit brown) is revealed!  In the spirit of spring, I want to share a very cheerful pillow with you that is a new addition to our World Traveler collection.   



CMH Studio  A Summer Mural of Butterflies & Flowers

Last week I painted this lovely bedroom for a little girl who loves butterflies, almost as much as her incredible collection of stuffed animals.

I collaborated with interior designer Lysa Wilkins, whom I love working with because she is so creative in all of her work.  She came up with this fun fence that extends into the room and contains a managerie of stuffed animals.  They fondly call this “The Nest“! (more…)

CMH Studio  Daisies for Daisy Mural

I had so much fun working on this flowery nursery mural for a baby girl named Daisy!  I love the “daisies for Daisy” theme–so cute and personal.three-photos-of-daisies

Daisy’s mom did an amazing job designing her nursery, with this cheerful furniture from Grow With Me Kids Furniture, and the great color combination.  The walls are painted with “Jack Frost” by Benjamin Moore, providing a light, airy background for the flowers.  I especially love the way the white daises look against the blue–soft and fresh!
