10 Painterly Purchases

Obviously I love this currently trend for all things painterly. I love the range of hues available, the visceral, gestural, almost spontaneous quality of this style.

This painterly effect look is fantastic when you want to perk up a bedroom or give a hallway a quick update. The great thing is you can pick pieces from this trend that suit your home; you can go subtle and select items with soft, fluid watercolour washes or go big and bold with confident bursts of colour – the choice is yours. Check out these ten picks…

10 top folky buys

From Marks & Spencer

You may have noticed that I’m a bit of an old hippy at heart and as an illustrator I can’t help but be drawn to a folky design. I love its simple, yet rather splendid style plus the sense of symmetry and its decorative hand-crafted look. I also like they way that even if you just use small touches, folky styles can give the most austere and coolest of spaces a relaxed edge and an element of informality and, because this style is steeped in history, it can give your spaces a sense of heritage.

It would appear that I am not alone. There are so many gorgeous folk-inspired designs on the market for you to buy to give your spaces that relaxed vibe. Take a look at my top ten (in no particular order) below…
