The early part of this year through a chain of fortunate events, I was introduced to the VP of Product Development for Pottery Barn. We became fast friends with so many things in common it was as if I had met my long, lost sister! She invited me to their headquarters, where I seriously had a moment when I thought I had just entered heaven! The fast pace environment with artists and artwork everywhere, simply took my breath away. I signed on with them that day as a freelance designer and have had the great fortune to work off and on with them since then. They have many incredibly talented in-house designers too. Did you know they create all their own designs? Simply spectacular. I also want to tell you that these are some of the nicest people I have ever met!! It has truly been a pleasure to work with them. Although I've created many designs, not all of them made the final cut but these sweet travel bags did! Yay! They are my first designs that I did for them. You can see the original paintings here. They did change the colors a bit but I'm thrilled with how cute they came out! They are now available here for purchase and would make a super holiday gift for the travel lover on your list! So that's really exciting! I feel really blessed to have had the opportunity to work with them!
Something else that's really exciting is a fun Give Away I'm doing over on Instagram! You can find me there @MariRDesign where I'm giving away a free room rendering watercolor. Just follow me there as well as @InteriorDesignCommunity and comment to me on the picture on your feed you would like painted! We will be picking a winner this Wednesday!
