I’m loving silhouette artwork right now. It’s classic, timeless and very personal. Traditional black and white is pretty, but why not make them a little more contemporary by showcasing the silhouette in a bold color like in the mom and dad silhouettes used in a design by Lilly Bunn Interiors below?
I originally saw bold silhouettes used in the Carter Kustera Portraits from Jonathan Adler. These cost a pretty penny at $750 each, but they are hand painted in gouache on large 15″x19″ paper, and this does include a custom frame and color.
I really like the color, font options and size of this print, but it was still lacking some of the personalization that was so charming in the Carter Kustera print.
While working on a current project, I came across this similar design by Love and Victory, which is a lovely blend of the two. These silhouettes are a little more unique because they are cut-outs not prints; a framed 9″x11″ is $78.
They can even be hand personalized with the child’s name and age like the Carter prints.
