Me and My Shadow
We all love portraits of our little ones. We also love swoon-worthy décor that speaks to our inner Jane Austens. Enter the silhouette, a contemporary take on a refined classic, and one that’s becoming a must-have for neo-traditionalist moms. A simple yet darling way to capture your child’s image, these classic keepsakes are part mod, part traditional and completely fabulous. And this Friday, the nation’s most sought-after silhouette man, Tim Arnold, will be gracing Denver with his artful presence at Nest, one of our fave boutiques for your mini fashionistas. From 10-6, Arnold will be cutting custom silhouettes of your little ones – a style savvy and budget-friendly way to preserve childhood memories while adding some oomph to your interiors. There are hundreds of ways to use them – from colorfully matted wall hangings, to nursery décor, to the perfect pop of graphic loveliness amidst your new gallery wall. They take mere moments to cut – a plus for your busy day and your child’s waning attention span. What’s more, watching Arnold in action is a treat in and of itself. Appointments are a must by calling Nest’s Sixth Avenue location at 720.287.1372 and silhouettes are $40 (cash or check, please) and just $10 for an additional print cut at the same time (hint – the perfect gift for grandmothers, aunts and husbands alike). The Silhouette Man (Tim Arnold) at Nest, Friday, February 8th from 10 to 6, By Appointment Only, Ring 720.287.1372, nestdenver.com.
