The selection of canvas nursery art has soared in the past few years. Five years ago when I was decorating my first nursery the choices were very limited and the canvas wall art concept was much newer. Thanks to Project Nursery reader Jennifer, we were just introduced to Taut Canvas. Created by a husband and wife team who after completing a complete renovation of their home realized they needed very specific artwork for their daughter’s room. With clean, modern and classic lines in mind, Taut Canvas felt it was important to combine a modern design aesthetic with a message of value. Their “Core Value Series” also includes kids tees and growth charts.
I chuckle when creator and father Rodney explains that certain kiddie themed artwork was just not going to make it up on the walls in their newly renovated, modern home. I too cringe when I have to display anything in my home that isn’t at least kid chic! He says about his home and daughter’s room “You could see directly into her room from the rest of our open concept home. We simply weren’t going to hang purple dinosaurs, little red monsters, or princesses on her walls. That’s what was out there and it just wasn’t us”.
