|Custom House Portrait|
My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary and as a gift I contacted Rebekka Seale to create a beautiful house portrait for us. We have lived in some beautiful locations over the years from Beacon Hill in Boston, Basking Ridge in New Jersey and Hampstead in London, England but I have to say that Concord is the place that truly feels like home to us. Maybe because in the back of our minds, we always knew we would eventually come home to Massachusetts and that if we lived anywhere it would be a place filled with history and charm. So 8 years ago we left London and set up home here in Concord and set about renovating our little house inside and out. We are almost done or can you ever really be done?
Rebekka Seale is from Nashville and she creates these lovely, whimsical, watercolor and gouache portraits of your home. She managed to pick out just the right details to highlight our home like our rock wall and our fiery orange doors. She even added in the cardinal husband and wife that live in our backyard waiting for my husband to fill the bird feeder each week. I swear they sing to him - it's all very Disney-esque!

She was fun to work with and was just as excited as I was when the rendering was complete. I wanted to make sure that she has a chance to see where her creation is living now. Take a look at her blog and website here and here. I think you will enjoy taking a peek at her lovely watercolors and illustrations.

In the end - my husband was thrilled with his gift and so was I. It was totally worth the wait.
See you soon,
