We have fallen in love with the work of one of our favourite customers – artist Katie Ponton! Katie really knows how to personalise her artwork, creating something special for your home. If you are looking for a unique gift or a print to stand out on your walls, check out her website for some ideas. All of Katie’s frames are real solid wood from Casa Chic which your home and the art truly deserves.
We caught up with her recently for her to ask a few questions about her work and creating the perfect home environment.
We love the creativity and imagination of your collections – where do you find your inspiration?
Pretty much my entire collection is family orientated. I have a very close family and passion for watercolour art. I think artwork and photos in lovely frames really finish of a home so having artwork which is personalised to your family is really special and unique on your walls.
Why do you like to use casa chic frames in your business?
When I started up, I searched high and low for quality frames for reasonable prices. I’m happy to pay that bit more for quality and always have but when I stumbled across casachic I was amazed all the frames were real wood which I absolutely love. I started to regularly order and not only are the frames amazing, the customer service has been exceptional.
What current interior design trends are you excited about at the moment?
bohemian style has become much more popular, blacks and natural wood. I love the bohemian style my living room is very Boho and finished off my with Pampas grass prints mounted in A2 black casa chic frames.
What do you have on your own walls at home?
We have some big wedding photos and then lots of my work. We have been living in our home got 5 years and still have so many empty walls which I have lots of plans and ideas when I get around to it. Our living room is one of our only finished rooms which is Boho style with my Pampas grass prints in large black frames and my personalised twins line art. (I have attached my living room photo it’s up to you if you want to use)
What simple changes would you suggest for updating a home for the summer months?
The spring and warmer weather is always great for a little freshen up of the walls and perhaps some new decor tropical style. I don’t think any of us are getting to our beach holidays this year so may as well make your home like your tropical destination or make yourself a little bar in the garden! Ha
We love how personalised your designs are– could you explain more about the importance of this in your work?
I know personally when I’ve ever brought anything for myself or a gift, something personalised and unique to you or that person is so so special. I love that I am able to do that and bring joy to my customers when opening their orders. I have even been told there has been tears a few times before (happy ones of course).
What ideas do you have for the future?
I have lots of designs I am still working on and various plans for new products in the future it is just taking that gamble at the right time and going with it.
