    Hi Jeanine and Bryan,

    We met at the Room & Board event this Summer, in Chicago, via Yvette. I am still interested in the Elisa Mazzone prints that you feature. I did go to her site directly, but it does not offer the opportunity to purchase. Are these for sale via another site, vendor…etc?

    Thank you again for the fabulous inspiration and kindness!

    Cheers!

      Hello! It was so great meeting you. The prints were by Leigh Viner. You can find her store on etsy. All of the prints that were featured at the event are available for sale on her site. Have fun decorating!
