Greenspiration Home’s American Made Décor “Pick-of-the-Week”
When Rebecca Puig of Sugarboo Designs couldn’t find any artwork suitable for hanging on the walls of her firstborn’s nursery, she decided to create her own. A trained artist, Rebecca continued to hone her art skills while creating sentimental yet quirky art for her family. Meanwhile, the accolades (and private commissions for artwork) starting mounting up and Sugarboo Designs was born!
“Usually when I am painting, I am thinking of what message I want to send my kids or what other parents can tell their children every day simply by hanging it on the wall,” said Rebecca.
This Pink Elephant sings out “Love to You” every time someone looks at it. As our American Made Pick-of-the-Week, we not only loved the sentiment, but the friendly elephant shape and vintage pattern and color. It’s one of many of Rebecca’s folksy creations – all of which are made in the Sugarboo Designs studio in Roswell, Georgia.
“I could be walking down the road and see a crack in the road that inspires a shape! Inspiration is all around!” said Rebecca.
Inspired by simple things like her children’s art, old things, nature, and quirky color combinations, Rebecca has created a unique line of whimsical art that is as endearing as it is beautiful to look at. She concepts each design, so her favorite materials take center stage in every finished product. Reclaimed wood, metal, sepia toned photographs and burlap all make appearances in the collection.
With an eye on sustainability, she uses formaldehyde/VOC free materials and water-based paints and inks. Frames are locally sourced from reclaimed wood, which not only adds to the earth-friendly factor but also the character of each finished piece. The originals are all replicated in the Roswell studio using eco-friendly materials and techniques.
So…. if you are ever at a loss for words or want to give a permanent reminder to someone of what they mean to you, Sugarboo Designs artwork offers a stylish, eco-friendly, and American-made way to do it! Check out all their artwork at www.sugarboodesigns.com.
