Atlanta Themed KitchenAid Mixer

When I was asked to do a Atlanta Georgia themed KitchenAid, I was ecstatic. My client left the design up to me to do, so being that Martin Luther King was born there, I just had to incorporate him.

Sugar and Spice!

Happy Valentine’s day – Love birds!

What better day to post this than on a day about love…

This mixer is themed ‘sugar and spice’ and embodies just that. From a fairytale dragon breathing fire, to intricate bronze flourish, roses and buds, to their beautiful wedding picture capturing a very special day…this mixer has everything while still feeling sophisticated. Final details were embellished in Swarovski elements. ENJOY!

Love the bright colors, the faux chrome, the italian flag. It’s anything but subtle.

Luscious Lime Chevron KitchenAid Mixer, Custom

Seriously delicious, seriously rad, nothing less than unique…this mixer will make you green with envy. It’s fun, delightful and refreshing with several tones of green splattered about. My friend Tara from Ephemera Letterpress brought in her mixer for a makeover… needless to say she left with her baby looking superb! Loving it!

Tara did all of our amazing tags for the Oscar mixers last year. Those can be seen here: Oscar Swag by UN AMORE

She does all of our amazing stationary too. You must check out Tara’s beautiful work after this…

For the Record…

When I started painting mixers, I had no ideas from anyone else or anywhere else. I painted mine for fun after receiving it as a gift from my mom. Then I painted my friend Sherri’s, then my friend Mikayla’s, my moms and so on. It snowballed. I made a website because I did a guitar case for Gavin Rossdale and thought I should look more “professional”. It was then I realized how many mixers I did for fun without a “business” and decided to ask my dad for a loan to start a business of painting them. Un Amore was born in 2008. I sold them all in 3 months and was able to pay my dad back. The rest is history…

I am the original who made it my profession. I am not claiming to be the “first” to paint a mixer, but I AM the one who made it popular…I am the one who had the vision and believed in it. I am a small business and I BUILT THIS.

So if there is any question about where this originated, how it started, I have your story. Below I have included just a few links of where my work has been featured.

Love to you all for your continued support, because without it, I certainly would be here today.

*No negative comments please on my page. I like to keep it passionate and friendly.

much love, Nicole

My very first mixer that I painted before Un Amore. This was at a shoot that launched my artwork on mixers.

And there’s more…I haven’t even begun to list the celebrities who own my work…but this gives you the idea. Know the facts. And I will conclude this with this quote… “Do not make presumptions, you learn nothing about anything, unless you let the truth unfold before your eyes.”
