{the modern cameo}

Silhouettes are HOT right now, and I think the modern fresh take on these cut-outs are so whimsical and fun!


I received my copy of the March issue of House Beautiful this week, and one of the photos got me thinking about the fun ways you could display cameo prints. If you have a mail/homework cubby designated for each person in the family, how about labeling each with a custom silhouette?


Last month I posted about Massucco Warner Miller's new fabulous line of customizable Cameo pillows:


Here are some other lovely examples I found around the web:




I LOVE what my friend Monika over at Splendid Willow did with leftover retro Hicks Hexagon wallpaper from her entry way, here is a gorgeous hand-cut cameo of her daughter!


I also love silhouettes of our furry friends, my fur baby {a pomeranian} would make a wonderful addition to the gallery wall I am planning for my home office!!



What a ham!! It's like he knew I was taking his picture :) Happy Monday to you all my friends!

Nancy, It is so nice to see what was a long forgotten "Victorian" art and craft achieve some prominence in the 21st century. These are so fresh and modern, I think that this is going to be a huge trend!

Ya know, I've seen these around and haven't tried it. Now I will. Thanks for putting me on to it again.

I love all of these inspiration pics - although they are all totally fabulous, your little sweet puppy stole the show- too cute for words! xo

Your dog is so freaking cute I could just squish him! I just posted about this the other day. I'm going to pick up some fancy paper from the scrapbook store and make some this weekend!

Nice collection of cameos :-) They're a great way to personalize your home by creating cameos of family members and pets, just like you're planning to do with your pup :-)

I remember having a cameo done when I was in grade 6 - I had a ponytail the day the cameo was done, and then got a pixie cut not long after. I missed my ponytail so much!

You should make a cameo of your dog - too precious!
This is on my to-do list, Little Green Notebook wrote a post about this the other day as well!

Nancy, it was nice meeting you on Saturday. Love your blog!!! I haven't been too keen on the cameo but I'm slowly starting to get on board. I think the new fresh approach could work for me...Carol

Lisa said...

Oh you are inspiring me to do some silhouette art! Just need to find the time.... What an adorable little dog - his silhouette would be beautiful on the wall!

Nancy I am having silhouettes of my grandkids in the new playroom, still debating on whether on the walls or on pillows. I have my 3 son's silhouettes since the were 2,4,6yrs old and that was over 32yrs ago. They are so special to me. I love the new take on them now, using colors and making them larger, totally fun!!
