Cloudkicker’s album, Be Huge, is a dreamy cascade of pastels only Mother Nature can create. With beachy tones and a laid back feel, this palette is perfect for any space in your home and a great inspiration for a wedding.
I have always thought dollhouses were interesting. From the construction and realistic layout to all the tiny pieces of furniture. Then you have the small people who live in these houses. Oh, what stories you could create in this imaginary little world.
This particular doll house was shot in Connecticut at a lighthouse museum. All the little rooms were so quaint and cozy. The one you see below is a bedroom showing exquisite detail and country style. It introduces a girl and her dog possibly starting the day. The lighting hints an early morning feel as if the sun was coming up right through the window. It could also be evening, where the warm tones of yellow and orange light up a room.
Either way, your story is their story. All that happens in the dollhouse is a piece of your imagination. It may be a small world but it gets larger the more stories it holds.
Theater Clouds is Canadian artist, Elly Mackay. The minute I saw her work I was in love. Her pieces are delicate, mesmerizing and beautiful. The process in which she works is sort of like creating a play or film but in stills. She uses ink for the drawings on yupo paper, cuts them out and layers them in an assemblage of wonderful little scenes. With the addition of lighting, these dreamy images are born.
Mackay studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design where she received her BFA. She is married with two children and spends most of her time creating these amazing pieces for us all to see. Thanks Elly!
The palette’s from which her work are created are mostly muted tones that have a romantic feel to them. They are great inspiration for weddings and baby showers, not to mention a calm and meditative interior space.
Check out her 2011 interview on Etsy to learn more about her process.
