Free-flowing, Fresh and Feminine

This nursery is like a breath of fresh air!  Perfectly coordinated for the room, furniture, and bedding. Plus, we thought ahead for when she grows, moves into her big-girl bed, and made room for unique additions when she is ready to tell us what she loves.

The nursery comes alive with this trendy – tree mural.   We plan for the perfect size, positioning, and color coordination.IMG_2836IMG_2792

Island oasis right here in MN-Nicollet Island that is!

A dozen years ago, my artwork was highlighted in the Travel Channel’s show “Passport to Design” featuring a facelift of this historic home on Nicollet Island.  The home is now up for sale, and the owner says the hardest thing to leave is the custom artwork throughout.  So , I decided to  reminisce and share the wonderful elements created for this world traveler:

Is it real or is it….?

I love people who love art, and my recent client is certainly one who loves unique art! It all started with a special design to be painted on a precious end table. When I was invited to her home, I noticed all her wonderful unique art, especially her large free-standing horse sculpture on wheels made of wood and metal that she acquired while living in CA (behind the hand painted table). photo #1

Then on Halloween, her beautiful cat decided to jump on for a ride, tipping it, braking the sculpture in two. Not being able to repair, and wanting to immortalize her artwork in some way, she thought of her “Untapped Resource” and gave me a call.

With the cat supervising, we began to create a mural on the wall. photo #2 – #3. When finished we re-attached the saved metal pieces,  and the result was a real success!  photo #4  Subscribe to my website – SherylVanderpol.com and like my Untapped Resource Facebook page, for more inspiration monthly. 763-542-1116
