The Long Winter months...

Rachel Cordaro

HI Everyone! I trust you are having a beautiful winter! This winter has seemed a little more nostalgic and bright to me! The Sunny days mixed with confectionary sugar snowfalls is the stuff Hallmark movies are made of. I know that sooner or later I'll trade in my cheerful outlook and duck boots with a plea for the smell of Australian Gold sun tan oil and 80 degree weather. No worries tho! I got ya covered...Throughout the long winter my website will have a large amount of original artwork for sale here along with lots of other goodies such as my pillow covers, prints and collaborations between Cordell Cordaro and I. Stay well and have a very Happy New Year!

 See you soon this summer!

Sincerely, Rachel xo


My dreams came true!!!

There's a saying you eat with your eyes first! Well I happen to think you sleep with your eyes first! That's why I wanted to create a line of euro style bed shams/throws that married colors and textures that made me wanna hibernate! I am a floral paintress and it is my passion to bring to you a custom mix of dreamy flowers with rich colors. My new shams are the perfect addition to your bedroom and living room! These new 26"x26" pillow covers are much larger than the previous ones I have available. A cotton polyester blend is the perfect texture to introduce these shams to complement stone washed linen bedding as seen is my photos! It has been so fulfilling to see this dream come true. My vision soon became reality with the diligence and passion fueled by a supportive husband, family and friends! I can't wait to continue pursuing more home accent possibilities in the future!
A very Special thanks goes out to My husband Cordell without you I couldn't have done this. You were my sanity and my bridge! Thanks for listening to me mull over ideas and weigh options to myself aloud in hopes you heard in detail all I was saying, even the words I was thinking and expecting a swift respond like all woman do...

Mom for being my biggest fan and jumping up and down with me when I showed you the finished product!

Faith for having Faith!
My friends for celebrating with me throughout the process and making it feel super special!
Gigi thank you for the Starbucks, admiration and love you have given me!
Kate Foster for making the final part of this operation magical and capturing my vision with your trusty Canon!

Fun Instagram Collaboration!

Rachel Cordaro

A few weeks back as I sat with a cup of coffee the mood to create a new business opportunity struck! I was scrolling through instagram and a beautifully curated home interior page caught my eye! I immediately felt the need to reach out to her and ask if she would be open to a collaboration! To my surprise Angela of AngelasCozyHome wrote me wright back eagerly willing to accept my offer! Here are a handful of images taken by Angela of her daughters beautiful new room that has my Iris painting in them! The best part is I made a new friend and her favorite flower is the Iris a special flower she holds dear to her heart!

I am honored to be the 2016 Corn Hill Arts Festival Poster Artist!

Rachel Cordaro
The inspiration began when I was introduced to a particular well-situated 1890’s home resting in the historic Corn Hill neighborhood. It’s cheery and whimsical characteristics went hand in hand with my artistic style of painting!
