I was surfing the web the other day for fabric paint and I stumbled upon these beauties and instantly fell in love!
There must be some way cool parents living in this house, right?
After reading the article about this incredible display of creative expression, I learned that all of the kudos have to go to Pamela Bell, who was one of the founding partners of the Kate Spade brand. This is her townhouse in the East Village of NYC. She wanted a kid friendly space for her children to grow up in, without having to sacrifice style. I think she achieved that here!
She allowed her daughter and a group of friends decorate the sofa with fabric markers for an art project in school and let her son paint the chair with fabric paints. Creative expression in its purest form! Everything about this risk free-creative zone makes me smile! My parents had to continually wallpaper my walls with rolls of paper when I was younger because my mom said my hands would be shaking if I was not coloring something. If they only knew all they had to do was cover my furniture in a simple cotton canvas and let me at it with a few fabric markers...
What do you think? Would you let your little Picasso decorate any furniture in your house-with permission of course?
