A very sweet, very artistic friend recently did a silhouette for another friend of ours. It was adorable. The image was of this friend’s three dogs, and the artistic friend’s daughter, all looking up and begging for a treat. The silhouette turned out so cute, and it got me thinking about how that would be really neat to do for my daughters.
A quick search online revealed that I am not the only person who has thought about this recently. I found what seemed like hundreds of blog posts and articles on decorating with silhouettes spanning the past few years. I’ll post about it when I do finally sit down and do some silhouettes of my girls, but in the mean time, here are some of my favorite sources of inspiration that I found during this little shadow art treasure hunt.
I just love groupings of framed art, but groupings of framed art with a THEME? Beautiful and organized. But wait, there’s more…
I love this wall color with the high contrast black and white of the silhouettes. The silhouettes are arranged in a family tree configuration. Even more organized…*swoon*
I love how this one looks like all of the art was just placed there haphazardly. I bet it took them FOREVER to place them to look like they were placed randomly. Come on, you know it did.
EEEEEK! No way ya’ll, look! It’s a series of framed silhouettes illustrating the varied uses of a balaclava! This is beyond rad.
If I had a farm house, I would have an entire hallway decorated exactly like this.

And here are a few more links of note, if you’re interested.
There will be more on the silhouettes tomorrow…so stay tuned!
