In The Mood For: Alexander Girard

This is our second post in our new series called, In the Mood For. See previous posts here.

I have officially decided that, if given the opportunity, I could indeed live in an Alexander Girard themed home and lead what might just be my very best life. Remember my obsession (see here). I find so much beauty and inspiration in his work that it felt only natural to dream up what part of my Girard themed home might look like. This is only a fraction of what I would like to do, I couldn’t throw myself all the way in for fear of being completely brokenhearted by not being able to actualize this dream!

I hope you love this as much as I do… and if you don’t know Alexander yet please take a moment to look at his work. It just might move you tears.

Who are some of your favorite artist that you would like to design your home around?


  1. I just learned about Alexander Girard on a recent trip to Santa Fe when I visited the Museum of International Folk Art. It was such a lovely showcase of his work. I’m smitten!

    • I also saw that exhibit at IFAM late last month! It was so great! I wish his old house in Santa Fe has been preserved. It would be really cool to get to see that.
