Black Baroque: Fab Boutique Design & Art
I was clicking around
on Etsy.com, one of my favourite online shopping sites, when I discovered some eye-catching art by a company called Black Baroque. I could not tear myself away from the computer screen and after “favouriting” almost every single piece of art for sale, I decided to investigate.
Black Baroque‘s owner, Alexandra, is one talented and very busy artist! Her entrepreneurial motivation and her incredible artistic skill have led her to own and operate 4 retail shops in the last 10 years. Now, her day job consists of making wonderful pieces of art for sale on Etsy (and boy, let me tell you, she is one busy cookie!) along with her business partner, President Poni.
I love ALL of Alexandra’s work. ALL OF IT.
I purchased the following 3 prints (for a steal, I might add!) consisting of vintage imagery printed on antique book pages.. Aren’t they so unique and inspiring?!
Here are some more of my favourite pieces that I plan to purchase in the new year (wouldn’t some of them be great for a children’s bedroom? Or to spice up a boring powder room?):
Although I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting Alexandra (or President Poni) in person, I can relate to her positive outlook on life and her love for art, which shows in the design of her last retail venture. The bold use of colour contrasts beautifully with the vintage decor style.
Although Poni’s Parlor (unique Gift Shop) is no longer open for business, I couldn’t help but share some photos of the shops interior with you – I think a person’s space tells a lot about their personality, and this space definitely gives you an idea of Alexandra’s fresh and spunky personality.
Click HERE to visit the Black Baroque shop on Etsy. You will not be disappointed…and I have a funny feeling you won’t be able to leave without buying something special for someone special (and who is more special than YOU!?). Enjoy!
