Project Process: Painting Commission with Christina Baker; 1 of 3

July 20th, 2013

I’ve been working on pretty extensive renovation over the last year, persevering with decisions and ideas and this powder room we have been focussing on in spurts. We made the wallpaper selection and got the fun mirror what seems like forever ago but hadn’t finished the rest. I’ve been thinking about how to add a fun pop of color with art. I just discovered the client loved the color salmon – which never came up in other conversations – perfect! A way to bring it in. Except now finding art with a really great salmon tone in it is tough. In comes the idea of a commission!

We worked with Christina Baker, whose work you might have seen here a couple times before. I am slightly obsessed with her work and colors. She’s super easy to work with so we approached her about a custom size piece. Not only could she do it, but she could fit it in and the price was great – sold! Photos below of the space as we were starting to think about colors we wanted to mail her to give her some direction.
