Local Art by Augusta Wilson Studio.

Nothing makes a house a home more then the art you chose to hang on your walls. It truly makes your space more personal and feel complete. Needless to say, we LOVE art. And, we LOVE supporting Local Atlanta Artists proudly throughout our shop!
We are thrilled to have a fresh new look in the shop right now. It is bright cheery and super happy! It will speak to an Urban Cottage lover.

We LOVE neutrals but think a great pop of color is such a great way to make a space simply perfect. These pieces are speaking to us!

Augusta Wilson's work (a fantastic Local Atlanta Artist) is proudly hanging throughout our shop. It is so reasonably priced!

See below for her story:

Augusta Hyland Wilson is a formally trained fine artist with a BFA in Painting from the University of Georgia and a MFA in Painting from Savannah College of Art and Design. 
In previous iterations of her so-called career, Wilson spent a Summer painting in the hills of Cortona, Italy, created a master's thesis examining the mores of Southern culture, planned weddings and social events for fellow Atlantans, and worked in one of the United States' largest sterling silver shops. She likes her current gig---where she creates paintings inspired by all of these aspects of her life---the best.
Wilson is the sole proprietor of Augusta Wilson Studio. She lives in Decatur, Georgia with her husband and baby son.

Stay tuned for a tent sale coming soon to celebrate! And come on by to get a happy painting (or a collection of them) for your home!

Artist: Augusta Wilson
