What’s on your walls? Is it meaningful? Is it beautiful?

Earlier this week I talked about how less can be so much more, and why simplicity might be best when it comes to what we have in our homes.

This area, however, is one is which I think that perfectly placed pieces amidst the simplicity are all the more effective in bringing beauty to our homes and speaking peace and hope and truth to our hearts… 

These stunning art prints are the creative work of Emily from Hope Ink Art. She designs scripture art and other personalized designs, intended to convey the timeless truth of the Word of God and to inspire hope in our homes.

Emily is a stay at home mom, homeschooling her 4 kiddos, and she loves creating scripture art to help support their family’s non-profit counseling ministry.

{isn’t this perfect for a men’s gift? Emily originally created it as a Soldier’s Prayer Psalm 91}

We have several pieces of her art in our home, and I treasure them because they are another way to (as my dear friend Sondra always says) to

“put something where your eye can see it, so that it will remind your heart

That’s what’s I’m trying to do as I slowly build up our repertoire of beautiful wall art- to find a combination of things that please the eye and speak truth to the heart.

This one is a close-up of a couples print based on 1 Corinthians 13. My husband and I have a personalized mounted print in deep red (you can see it in this older post– note that the giveaway in that post has long ended- you have to enter on this post!).

The mounted prints are have a gorgeous, professional-quality finish to them, and similar to a painter’s canvas, they are lightweight and about an inch thick, easy to hang on the wall.

The art prints are printed by a professional photo lab on premium, archival quality paper, intended to last forever.

These examples are just a small selection of the lovely work that Emily carries in her shop.

Any print or mounted print can be customized. You can choose the colors and customize names or wording (depending on which piece it is) to make it just right for yourself or to give as a gift. We have given several prints as wedding gifts and they have been very well received. If you have a specific idea, just ask Emily and see if she can do it.
