For the last several years, we've created a collection for you around the theme of water. Water can mean a lot of different things to people. You might hear "water" and think of the beach, the pool, a lake... you might think of the ocean, or a cold glass in your hand, or a refreshing shower, or even baptism. Water is essential for everyday life, and we also associate it with luxury and leisure. Because water does feel so meaningful, and maybe especially because (to my Midwestern heart) it signifies that SUMMER is here, I think it might be my favorite collection to create! I also love creating things I know you're going to like, and I know you're going to love this one!!!
This year's collection is a little more dialed in. The mood board that Laura created (below) before I started painting really helped us hone in on a color palette where everything truly does incorporate seamlessly together. It's meant to feel refreshing, cool, effortless, and happy. There are some warmer tones and neutrals mixed in with the blues, which feel easier to incorporate into a home year-round even if you don't live in a lake house or near an ocean!
We try to be intentional about not depending on the architecture of a home to showcase Lindsay Letters artwork. We want these pieces to work for you whether you live in a dream home or a dorm room, a brownstone or builder grade... wherever! So we set up little scenes and change or paint a few backgrounds to create a sense of space. Throughout this shoot I kept thinking, I don't know where this is, but I know I want to be there...
... and that's the heart of what art is trying to do, right? It sets the tone for a space. It can transport you, it can calm you, it can make you more content within your own four walls. No matter what, it makes you feel something. And we hope you love the way the pieces from this collection make you feel.
p.s. We just rolled out an exciting new feature on the website, currently available exclusively on The 2022 Water Collection! Now as you're shopping you can select your preferred view: styled (which is the default), simple, or art print. We think it's super fun and helpful, but we'd love to know what you think about it! Leave us a comment or drop us an email: email@example.com.
Melissa from Team LL here, with two things!
First, I want you to meet my son, Augie! 🥰 He’s a vibrant, smart, and curious 6 year old who lights up any room he walks into, loves dinosaurs & books & ice cream, and is one of the strongest, hardest working, and most determined little boys! He also happens to have Down syndrome.
Which leads me to the second thing… today is kind of a big deal! It’s World Down Syndrome Day! 🎉🎉🎉
3 / 21 represents the third replication of the 21st chromosome, which is Trisomy 21, or more commonly known as Down syndrome. Today, we join with our friends, family, and the Down syndrome community to raise awareness of Down syndrome and advocate for acceptance and inclusion.
My hope and desire for Augie is that he is always welcomed, valued and included. That he would be accepted for who he is — and that his differences can be celebrated. Lindsay’s Welcome Here Manifesto is a beautiful representation of what it means to have a heart to welcome all people. It’s one of my all-time favorite Lindsay Letters pieces because the words resonate so deeply, and because Augie inspired the inclusion of the word “chromosomes”!
In honor of Augie and the entire Down Syndrome Community, we have two special things happening at LindsayLetters.Co today, March 21!
🎉 Use code MANIFESTO at checkout for 15% off The Manifestos Collection, including “Welcome Here” (today only)!

Lindsay's 2022 Spring art line launches this Thursday evening, March 10—and we cannot WAIT to share it with you! The Plant Shop Collection is full of fresh, plant-inspired pieces that will bring so much life to your walls and home. Whether you're a plant mama through-and-through or you admire plants from a distance (we can't all have green thumbs), we know you're going to absolutely love this one.
Here are a few tips on how to get ready for the Spring launch event!
📏 Take inventory, and measure. Make a little note in your notebook or on your phone of which walls & spaces you're shopping for, and the sizes you need. For example, I have a wall in my bedroom that needs one large canvas (30x38), plus two prints in my hallway that I'd like to change out for the season (8x10s), plus a spot above my towels in my bathroom for a framed art print (11x14).
☎ Sign up for texts, if you haven't yet. We may send out an early access link on Thursday to our text subscribers, so get on our list!
🎵 Queue up the playlist! Dugan is our resident collection deejay, and his Plant Shop Collection playlist is ready to enjoy on Spotify now, here!
👯♂️ Refer a friend & earn points. If you have a friend who loves plants (or art, or sales) as much as you do, tell them about the Plant Shop Collection collection that's coming, and include your referral link!
If you haven't signed up for our Rewards Program yet, now is a good time to do so! Once you create an account, click over to rewards and select "refer my friends." You'll get a referral code that you can copy & paste for your friends... giving them $10 off and you $10 worth of Rewards credit!
Ready for some sneak peeks?!
Above: Our good friend Brooke from Nesting With Grace got an early look at the collection and fell in love with Rainbow Checks. She included it in her guest room renovation, so we made it live on the site a little early for her crowd. It looks so perfect within the collection — a burst of happy color that we know will incorporate into so many spaces!
Above: The title piece of the collection, Plant Shop, was the very first piece Lindsay created for this collection, and the team favorite. Keep your eye out for this one, it's really special!
Excited to see more? The Plant Shop Collection (full of abstracts, lettered pieces, typography, and touches of fun & fresh vintage art) launches Thursday evening, March 10! Remember to take inventory of your walls & measure, sign up for texts, and send a plant-y friend your referral link!
Giving gifts is truly one of my very favorite things to do! I especially love pairing or bundling things together for a gift – I think it feels extra special and complete that way. In case you're in the marker for some ideas, I wanted to share some of my favorite bundling ideas for gifts. I hope you see the perfect idea for someone on your list, or to have on hand for an impromptu gifting opportunity. (I know having on-hand gifts always serves me so well!) Plus, don't forget the service people in your lives! Scroll on down to see my ideas... (Oh, and even if you got the email last night, there's a bonus addition at the end of this post!)
✨ Abstract Mini Canvas + Easel » Perhaps one of the gifts I'm most excited about isn't what you'd think... it's this great, modern easel! Laura's sister Kara turned us on to this great Amazon find, and it's proven to be the perfect thing to hold up our 8x10 Abstract Mini canvases. We use it again and again. Art can be intimidating to purchase for people, but if you gift an Abstract Mini canvas and the easel, they can just pop the art anywhere it works!
✨ Candle + Mini Print Bundle » Next up in the lineup are our delightful candles. YUM. They already come bundled with a mini print, so you don't really need to add anything to make it feel complete. (But who doesn't love pretty matches, or a lovely snuffer?!)
✨ Buddy Campfire Mug + Holiday Sticker Pack » Exciting news!! Right now when you add a Buddy Campfire Mug to your cart, you'll see a Holiday Sticker pack in there, too—free!!! What a perfect gift for the Christmas movie lover on your list.
✨ Comfort & Joy Hoodie + Carhartt Beanie » This Comfort & Joy hoodie is the holiday sweatshirt I'm most excited both to wear and to gift this year. It's festive, but in a pretty color that will wear well long into the winter. (And it's soooo buttery soft!) Tie it with a bow or top it off with this nicely priced Carhartt beanie. (My favorite is the dusk purple!)
✨ Christmas Tensions + Watercolors » The holidays can be a tender time for anyone who's experienced loss. I love the idea of gifting this mini print along with my favorite watercolors for a thoughtful gift. (Aren't watercolors the most calming & therapeutic of art supplies?!)
✨ Last, but CERTAINLY not least, is my most favorite (slow fashion) brand, ABLE. Here's a little collection of some of my favorite things they create, including leather bags, rings, and a few wardrobe staples. The items in this collection are products I actually own, and so I promise they are my tried and true favorites. If you use code LINDSAYLETTERS20, you'll get 20% off, plus you'll get $10 for every $100 spent in your account for future purchases! If you're gifting to someone you REALLY love, I would pair it with the Welcome Here Candle bundle. (it's in our secret product vault, but available to you!) It smells like a walk through the woods while you also smell good from a fresh shower. If that makes sense. Just trust me, it's perfectly mild and perfectly delightful.
P.S. Our Holiday order cutoff is December 8th, so make sure you finish up your LL gift shopping!
