Art in Your Home :: Emily Isabella


Art in Your Home with Emily Isabella

A: Art means to me… Personal: Nearly everything on our walls was made by someone dear to us or represents who we are. For example, we have a collection of screen printed tiles and cutting boards that my grandpa designed. Another example is the antique bus stop sign. It was given to us as a wedding gift to remind us of where we first met. Essential: Air, water, beauty. Real: I am attracted to art that is raw, honest and flawed. Art reflects life.


R: Reading books, blogs, or magazines… The Ballet Russes and the Art of Design, Herodia the Lovely Puppet, Hitty by Rachel Field, The Growth of the Soil by Knut Hamsun, Apollo’s Angels by Jennifer Homans…I’m sort of in the middle of a few books right now.

T: Trends I see in art or graphic design are… resurgence of the hand, 50’s inspired design, and minimalism. 


A: Artists I admire are… my Grandpa, Ron Cox.  I also admire Mary Blair, Grant Wood, Celia Birtwell, Virginia Burton, Edouard Vuillard and Julie Andrews.  Does she count? 

N: Never will I… eat a mammal. 


D: Dreams for my own work are… to illustrate children’s books!

P: Projects I am currently working on are… my second collection and a handful of top secret projects!! 


R: Relaxing I do at/when/if… I don’t love to relax. To me, relaxing=sleeping. Spending time with friends is very important to me.  Also, ballet class helps center my life. And I love to plan parties!

I: Interesting art focused websites I like are… Lullatone, Hello Sandwich and Folk Fibers


N: New in my home is… Mr. McGregor’s Place – a serigraph by Ross Wetzel. It used to hang in my grandparent’s living room but now it lives in our dining room.

T: Tomorrow I would like to go to… JAPAN!!!


S: Studio, my studio is… in the middle of our house. I like it that way.

    Your inspiration room for your new place is one of my favourites, too. I love the mix of materials and styles

  4. Gretchen

    Love to see her home. It’s full of lovely things like I think I saw a book that I just orded and i’m waiting for…I mean Circus book – now I think – it have to be lovely! Great post!

    I love these little quirks and perks. People tend to forget that interior design doesn’t have to me something passive that you just set and forget. Having elements like these around the house are a great way to drive inspiration in other parts of your life, too. Love it.
