How beautiful are these wintery prints by children’s fashion illustrator Maia Chavez Larkin? They are equal parts imaginative and playful and a fun addition to any little one’s room décor. Having attended school for interior design and then studied painting and drawing in Italy, Maia has contributed to the industry for years; her work has been featured on brands like Mini & Maximus and Anais & I, as well as with a variety of print and online publications. She also has a whole collection of dolls and printed cushions (called “softies”) that are stuffed with eco-friendly bamboo or corn fiber and organic dried lavender. As an added bonus, Maia paints the dolls and tea-dyes the softies by hand - pretty amazing! Check it all out here.
