Art should inspire.
Back in February, The Divine Miss M changed rooms. We let her pick her paint colors and theme and she went with a teal and butterfly theme. It’s a happy room, just like she is happy.
Recently, we had the opportunity to review a Gigi Imagines print and it has added so much to her room. Mostly, I have enjoyed listening to The Divine Miss M and Li’l Man discover art by interacting with this butterfly print.
When the print arrived we were in wedding mode. Our house was filled with laughter, nerves and joy. I placed the print on an easel in The Divine Miss M’s room and as I folded laundry, worked on blog posts and just went about life, I listened to the words coming from The Divine Miss M’s room.
It started with Li’l Man, resting on the floor, he whispered, “It’s like a sunset with clouds”. The Divine Miss M and he then spent thirty minutes dreaming up things the “clouds” created–the one above is the ocean crashing into a glacier.
They got up close and talked about the “fabric” the butterfly was painted on. The Divine Miss M wanted to know what it was. It opened a whole door to conversation when I told her it was a high quality giclée canvas print of the original paintings done by the artist, Gigi.
While we were all snuggled on the bed reading, The Divine Miss M interrupted the story to tell me that she though the artist made a mistake and sent her the REAL painting because she could see brush strokes. It was true. There are plenty of brush-strokes to be seen throughout the print making it a very lifelike print!
The colors are vivid and bright. They create a butterfly that is stunning in color and beauty.
At separate times, my children have each come to ask me what G.i.g.i. spells. I have told them it spells Gigi and that is the artist of the picture. It is a nickname given to her by her nephews . I then shared with them that the artist wanted a name for her company that reflected that, in art, anything can happen, all that is required is your imagination. That’s how the name Gigi Imagines was created.
At Gigi Imagines, there are multiple options of font type and font color for the personalization and while we selected the butterfly print, there are many other designs that can accommodate more than just a first name. We paired The Divine Miss M’s name with a teal that matches her wall. It is a great contrast against the bright yellow background.
Gigi Imagines offers art that will have your children inspired. The prints are rich in detail and look hand-painted. It’s a great way to add some color to any wall in any room.
