Often when you think of buying art for your home you think of the main areas of your house, but not the bedrooms, especially not the kids bedrooms. Having art in your child's room from a young age is a great way to encourage a love and appreciation for art. My oldest two girls share a room and have an adorable ballerina quilt from Company Kids that is my inspiration for the decor. I knew I wanted to get a piece of ballet themed art from Gallery Direct to tie the room together. Gallery Direct had a wide variety of options as well as quality products for me to choose from. I knew I wanted a wrapped canvas with a ballet theme so I wouldn't have to worry about glass in my girls bedroom. After searching through thousands ( literally) of images I decided I wanted a painting and not a photograph but I did not want any actual figures in the piece. I debated on whether or not I wanted a pair of shoes or a tutu until I found the Ballerina tutu by Barbara Helgason and I knew it was the perfect piece to inspire my ballerina room. When the piece arrived my girls got so excited and it is exactly what I was looking for. The piece is striking and beautiful yet very soft and feminine. I love how the gallery wrapped canvas turned out and it makes the perfect statement in my girls room and it helps to introduce art into everyday life!
