Jessica Durrant

It makes me extremely happy to be surrounded by pieces of art that I love, so I was really excited when I came across the work of the extremely talented illustrator Jessica Durrant. She runs an Etsy shop full of absolutely gorgeous watercolor and pen works that are feminine, but retain a feel of upscale sophistication. Her prints include fashion sketches, maps, city skylines, vintage illustrations and more-all in beautiful watercolors.

I desperately needed a new look for the wall near my bed, and I was thrilled to go with two of Jessica’s gorgeous fashion illustrations. They give me a serious jolt of happy every time I glance at the wall next to my window:

When it comes to decorating, art pieces are like books to me, in that they are personal and subjective-and to me, the best decorating is personal. When you walk into a person’s apartment and find it filled with books and interesting art, these things tell you something about the occupant’s interests and personality. I’ve been on a bit of an art buying stint lately, so I can’t wait to show everyone the new piece I hung in my entryway, and the new gallery wall I created above my desk (including one of Jessica’s city skylines!) Stay tuned for that later in the week.
