Watson Kennedy is a great shop for finding the perfect gift for a friend, mother-in-law or hostess. It’s also a great place to get inspired. Their displays are absolute eye candy. On a recent visit in the shop, I was inspired by the display and art work of Hugo Guinness. Small lino-cuts of simple objects, figures and animals, all hung in a tight little group, making a big impact. It gave me an idea for Thomas’ nursery. We aren’t moving yet, but are sure to in the coming months, and he will finally have a room of his own. I can’t wait to decorate.
While I was at WK, I purchased three letter cards, one for each of Thomas’ initials. I like the fact that they don’t match, and I think I can find some vintage frames to put them in. I want to hang them on the wall in a cluster along with some other prints or photos that I have yet to find. On my hunt, the important common denominator will be scale and patina. I am looking for frames that show their age and other prints or artwork that are also small. I might also add a few family photos into the mix.
