Etsy can be a treasure trove, but finding the treasure takes lots of time and patience. I felt super lucky when Judy Kaufmann, an illustrator from Barcelona, sent me a link to her etsy shop full of colorful prints — the treasure fell in my lap! I love her bright repetitive patterns and muted portraits of icons like Audrey Hepburn and Andy Warhol.
And you can have a piece of her work in your home, because Judy is kindly giving away any A4 print from her etsy shop to one of DomestiKatedLife’s readers!
- Simply visit Judy’s Etsy shop and leave a comment below letting me know which print is your favorite.

- This giveaway will end at 5:00 PM EST on Friday, May 25th and winners will be contacted via email. Good Luck!
UPDATE: GIVEAWAY CLOSED, thanks for entering!
Killing some time before the Cynthia Rowley event on Wednesday night, I took a window-shopping stroll down Newbury St. The window at Jack Wills caught my eye — the clothes were cute, but the styling got me inside. I had one of those “how did I not know about this store?” moments as soon as I entered; it was preppy paradise. On make-up packaging, umbrellas, jewelry, bathing suits — their signature navy and pink stripe was everywhere. Including on the walls behind a stellar art gallery going up the three-story staircase in the center of the store. Let’s just say – I kind of want to move in.
After making a pink and navy striped purchase I snagged their catalog and poured over it at home. Their home goods also have that signature ivy-leaguer-look — it makes me wish I had a dorm room to decorate again!
Walking around my empty new apartment this weekend, I started thinking about how many oversized pieces of artwork I have, and how few options there are going to be for open wall space to hang them. Between doorways, windows, and the pitched ceilings in some of the rooms — my options are limited.
But scrolling through my handy inspiration file, I’m finding lots of great examples of oversized artwork taking up the majority of the wall — it’s like wallpapering a surface — but framed!
I just caught on to a new blog, Live Creating Yourself. I noticed its’ author Alaina and I have similar tastes, her couch had the same animal print pillows I just bought! And the graphic prints behind in her apartment are adorable. I love the simplicity and impact of stripped down line drawings (I also love her apartment).
It’s like she read my mind because just as I was about to email her and ask where she got them, she posted about opening her own Esty shop and selling her creations!

The fig and prosciutto pizza I made for dinner:
The promotion I got at work! (notice how that came second to pizza? Yea. I love food.)
And the awesome print I ordered from Design Crisis as a present to myself for kicking ass. I can’t wait to frame and hang this bad boy. Nothing says congratulations on your promotion like a giant framed horse… made of other horses.
