I’ve always loved DIY projects and adorning spaces, but my passion for interior decorating really came to light when I moved out. Having my own place and empty walls as blank canvases grew inspiration to design and create pretty things to make the space my own. A project that I finally got around to is putting together a wall art gallery above the couch in the living room of The Little Loft. I had a particular vision in mind that made me selective when curating pieces to include on this wall. I got a lot of ideas from Pinterest on what I could use and the different layouts that could be done. Such pieces included canvases, framed wall prints, deer heads, and clocks, but I never saw or considered framed puzzles, until now.
Rosewood Puzzle Co. is a Canadian company that supports the work of local artists. They have taken the youthful joy of assembling a puzzle, paired it with trendy and tasteful art, and made it a piece of work that’s functional in the household. These aren’t just puzzles, they’re art! A few years ago, adult colouring books were the big craze, and I truly believe now it’s time for us to look at puzzles being the new therapeutic activity.
When I was contacted by the company to collaborate with them, I knew straight away that I absolutely wanted to showcase their work on the blog, and to include some of them in the wall gallery. I must admit, the flamingo print immediately sold me on the idea! Okay, so that wasn’t the main reason, but who doesn’t love a pink flamingo?! I love the fact that they’re a homegrown company that sources their products here so I’m supporting a local company. Plus, the puzzles are so adorable!
The puzzle was much harder that I thought it would be, perhaps because I haven’t completed one in years, or maybe because so many pieces of this particular puzzle were white. Needless to say, it really challenged me and got me thinking, but it was so worth it! The puzzle is made of solid and good quality cardboard and the colours are so vibrant, and will definitely be a head turner.
There are 99 pieces in each puzzle set, and the completed art measures 8.5″x 11″ so you’ll easily find a photo frame to display the work. Not only can you hang the puzzles on the wall, but you can also display them on a table, a bookshelf, or even under a clear acrylic sheet on top of a desk or table surface.
I highly encourage you to hop onto their website to see the complete range of the portfolio. Every one of them is so frame-worthy!
P.S. The wall art gallery isn’t 100% finalized just yet, but it will be shared on the blog once it is!
