Her wall art is particularly intriguing as it is inspired by the places she'd like to visit - hence, our aptly titled article from the popular Dr. Seuss book  "Oh, The Places You'll Go!" We've chosen three wall prints to feature here.  The first, "C is for Camel", is a gorgeous camel silhouette drawing filled with a pattern inspired by Marrakesh, Morocco.  Moroccan style decor is a new trend in home decorating that you should consider for a baby nursery or kid's room due to its combination of earthy hues and bright, eye-popping colors like the purple, orange, and yellow colors in the camel. The Massachusetts themed W is for Whale wall print gets its inspiration from the lovely area of Cape Cod, known for its blues and grays.  Enhanced, with a paisley-like pattern with what can be seen as mini-bubbles blown by the whale. Finally, the E is for Elephant print is a bold combination of bright blue, orange, and purple inspired by the style of Thailand.  The Thai are famous for their bright-colored silks and dark wood furniture.  The style and color palette of this print is probably most appropriate for decorating a boy's room. Jennifer has designed a wall print line for the entire alphabet featuring more of our favorite nursery animals such as deer, bear, giraffes, and my personal favorite, "A is for Aardvark". The wall prints are printed on photo matte paper and measure 9"x9". They come unframed or framed for $25 and $50, respectively.
