I know I'm posting really sporadically right now, but it's ONLY because I'm so under the gun to get the Clad Home store open to the public. Thanks for understanding, and just know that I'll be back in action here soon. For now though, here's an update:

The whole decision to open a store came about so quickly that I was definitely not up to speed with all of the wholesale resources that it takes to stock a store like this. That's my call out to all you artisans, painters, makers of beautiful things out there, especially California-based, who think you might have something cool for the store. I'm especially looking for painters because I have a lot of wall space to fill!

They're all around $10-$50 depending on the size you choose, and I think they all have just the right mix of colorful graphics with an artsy foreign vibe to be a really interesting addition to any gallery wall. And let me tell you, $50 for
The Chief in the headdress reminds me a lot of these prints that Domino sells by artist Jenna Snyder-Phillips ...
Can't you see any of those prints looking great in a gallery wall mix like this?
