The Arts: Beyond a Shadow of a Face

Maybe it's just this week's giveaway, but I am in a silhouette state of mind.  The cutting or painting of the classic art form originated sometime in the 17th and18th centuries and is still going strong today.   There are countless ways to incorporate the silhouette into a traditional or contemporary interior.

My cousin Lauren gave my son Henry one of these adorable custom silhouette plates (from Etsy) for his first birthday.  

By Paper Cutting Artist Pamela Dalton

"QE2 Silhouette" from Annechovie on Etsy

Customizable "Your Home is Where Your Heart Is" state from LilyGene on Etsy.  
Perfect going away gift!

"State Love" from Paint Me a Picture on Etsy

How would you incorporate silhouettes in your home?  Win the MMC giveaway and you can work with the artist to make your vision a reality!
