Personalized Asian ArtAre you into Asian influenced home decor? If you’d like something Asian inspired for your walls yet more personal than what you’d find at Homesense you might like this idea. While at the CNE a few years ago I discovered a little booth that converted my family’s given names into these wonderful pieces of art. I love them.

They were created on my choice of parchment paper. I purchased the textured background paper from an art store such as DeSerres trimmed to size and framed them in matching inexpensive frames from a chainstore. They would look great in different sized frames also if you prefer to use frames you have. I can change the background paper to add a different color in future if need be. If you were to put them all in one large frame you could choose a shadow box type frame and incorporate some chopsticks for interest. Another idea might be to add some asian fabric as a background to the arrangement. The possibilities are endless.

Getting Connected


"I just wanted to write a note to let you know how thrilled we are with ‘Rediscover Your Home’. We’ve had 9 years of growth and accumulation since moving to our current home. The stuff we needed and used was all there, but in a format that no longer met our family’s needs. Helping sort and organize the rooms to functionally meet our current lifestyle was a great step forward, then identifying ‘memory items’, including photos and wall art that make it feel and look like home, pulled it all together. The boys (including Dad) are able to help run the day to day events, entertaining and sports – thanks to the organization making sense, and we are enjoying our family time way more as a result! Even my Father-in-law commented on the new room layouts and pictures on the walls! I will definitely be in contact when we need to update the space again! Thanks for making my ‘house of stuff’ a home again and workable for our family using items we liked and already owned! All the best."
