When it comes to giving my kidlets' rooms a touch
of framed personality, geekery, uniqueness and a sense of
timelessness disguised as modern vintage is a must.
So imagine my absolute delight (and slight addiction) upon
finding Sarah Jane, the absolutely phenomenal artist and mom behind
the endearing, vintagey prints, paper goods and gift tags at Sarah Jane Studios.
I love what she brings to the table, er, wall, with simply
illustrated, yet detailed works inspired by the innocence of
childhood. And, in a world where everything for kids seems to come
in bold primary colors with tons of glitter and its own light show,
there's something serene and soothing about her classic
Each piece looks like a page right out of an old-fashioned
picture book and could easily pass as a decades-old family heirloom
that hung in Great-Grandma Mae's nursery or a collector's prized
find, but with a price tag that's way, way, way more reasonable
than the average opening bid at Sotheby's.
