Pantone Colour of the Year 2015 – Marsala

So the new year is upon us and many of you are already turning your minds to re-decorating for spring or freshening up your home with a new colour scheme for 2015. Pantone have announced their colour of the year for 2015 as Marsala 18-1438.

We thought we’d highlight how well both of these colours compliment our Parasol Parade wallpaper which features Victorian ladies and vintage perambulators on a beautiful pearlescent finish! The design features a palette of warm nude, ‘copper’, ‘marsala’ and sepia tones so all of our lucky customers can rest easy knowing that their nursery decor is bang on trend, phew – what a relief! (jokes!)

Lovely Lisa Congdon Art!

Although her name is familiar to me, I’ve never actually taken a good look at this talented girl’s portfolio. The American artist and illustrator has such a huge array of bright and cheery drawings paintings collages and patterns to pour over. Her work is so uplifting, here are some of my favourites….

In Love With Ruben!

I just had to share with you all my new found love, the work of an artist I’ve been following for some time, Ruben Ireland.
I first his discovered his surreal and somewhat disturbing paintings over at Society6 ( where you can find a wealth of original, affordable art in the form of handy household items) whilst in search of a more “interesting” ipad cover than what was on offer in Currys, and have been hooked ever since.

This is surrealism, digital collage and painting at its finest. I only hope I have the pleasure of owning one before the year is out (take heed husband!) and it would have to be a really BIG print, because the quality and detail of his work is so awe inspiring it needs to be noticed! (An iphone cover would not suffice, but I wouldn’t turn it down!) My bedroom walls are crying out for Ruben Ireland!
