To me, one of the most personal ways to design a life with intention is to design a home with intention. Creating an environment which reflects our vision for our lives helps us fulfill those dreams everyday.

I’m currently obsessed the retro-modern silhouette art which keeps popping up all over the home design blogs. So when I stumbled across our new October MML sponsor, Vana of Le Papier Studio (based in Chicago!), I was hooked. I knew that I had to have a few pieces of her work for my new apartment. The only question was, what silhouette do I choose? I’m single with no kids, so the really cute couple and kid prints were out of the question. And I didn’t quite feel up to staring at my own mug each and every day…

Then a solution popped in my head: my family’s Westie, Mackenzie! For those of you who know me, it’s certainly no secret that I’m dying to have a Westie (or Frenchie) puppy myself, but my traveling schedule and apartment don’t allow for one. So having the outlines of Mackenize all over my apartment make perfect sense! No mess, no clean up, and no fur on the couch.

Here’s some pics of Mackenzie throughout my apartment:

This little wall decal is actually a direct outline of Mackenzie from a photo I sent Vana. She turned it into a wall decal to her exact height, so it really does look like Mackenzie herself is waiting for me to come home. I chose the yellow color (there are tons of hues to choose from) because it was cheerful and would stand out more than white, her actual fur color, would.

I also sent a side profile photo of Mackenzie to Vana and she made this adorable print (secret: my mom is coming to visit today and I made one for her too). I love that I was able to choose a dark chocolate backdrop so that the silhouette mimicked her white fur. Had I gone with a color for the center of the silhouette, she might have looked more like a Scottie than a Westie.

And of course, I couldn’t resist having her on my farmers market tote as well. So cute. (Check out the custom photo option to see Mackenzie become a silhouette!)

I must emphasize, this is just a taste of the product offerings Vana has in her shop. You can also get custom jewelry, aprons, cuff links, stationary, plates, and much more.

Silhouette Art Book Giveaway

Vana has also recently launched a new book, Silhouette Art, sharing the step by step process of creating your own silhouette art! So if you want to get crafty and make your own custom pieces of art, all the instruction and paper you need are right within the book.
