Geninne has that rare capacity to see the beauty and make even the most mundane of objects appear beautiful. Wooden kitchen spoons, balls of twine, rocks, pebbles, bottles, pencils, markers....are all displayed with love and care, and become sculptural and magical.
I contacted Geninne and she was nice enough to let me have access to her flickr photos and take what I want. I had the hardest time picking what I wanted to share, but here is just a small sampling. You can see her artwork here, an interview with her here, and her Etsy shop here. And like me, if you don't absolutely swoon at the beauty of it all, well then I'm eating my hat!!!!
Isn't this just lovely?
The kitchen window
Studio window - how does she get any work done?? I'd be lost in the view!!!!
Working on a painting! Now this is what I call a beautifully messy table! Have you ever seen a prettier mess?
So so lovely!
Love that half blue half white wall. And oh the neatness of it all!!
Ordinary things looking extraordinary!
Her inspiration board! It certainly has me inspired!
I have no words for this, I'm speechless.....you decide!!
The warm Mexican light flooding the living and dining areas
The dining room
View from dining into kitchen
The most beautiful kitchen corner I have seen. I am craving everything I see!
Have wooden spoons ever looked so good?? Not even in a Williams Sonoma catalog!!!
Her gorgeous watercolors!
Painted rocks! See what I mean about boring things looking lovely?
And of course, dog lover that I am I had to show Turbo, her border collie! Woof woof!And as if 2 talented members in the family isn't enough, her son Daniel is showing his amazing skills in his own blog!
