TRENDING: neon brights

5 Apr

Perhaps the most vibrant (or jolting) spring/summer trend this year – ’80’s electric, neon brights are making their comeback!

 left | My boyfriend recently picked up these Ernie Ball strings for his new guitar – love the retro font, really awesome packaging! These strings come in a whole spectrum of neon colours. They look so good altogether on display in the music shop.

right |  I’ve always loved neon. There’s something about thrilling, electrifying hues that really get my heart racing. I especially love the contrast when paired with black, which makes for a very bold design (so the item above is exactly my cup of tea). And I’ve been really inspired by it lately. I mean, it’s everywhere, and you can’t really ignore it. So I’ve definitely embraced it again, and used it in some small paintings that I’m currently working on. A neon series, in fact. These will be available in my Etsy shop today. This one pictured, is about the size of a postcard.

So rev up the excitement factor in your life + inject a little neon fun! Be inspired by some of my favourite finds below (I’m dying over that rug, totally on my NEED list!). However, you must be warned: be prepared for some serious head-turning!

ASK ME: deer head decor

1 Apr

A friend recently asked me about the ever-popular wall mounted deer head. And I still love this trend. A small one would look great grouped in a gallery style, surrounded by other frames + elements. I also like when they are mounted completely alone, over a bed or sofa. I’ve sourced a few that resemble the regular style, and others which are very unconventional, for a traditional wall decoration.

Unusual material or ultra white colour:

 For a more true + traditional style:

1890 Iron Stag HeadDeer Antler in Cast Resin, Deer Head in Cast Resin – Restoration Hardware

Colourful + cheerful:

Mint & Baby Blue Deer Head Wall Mount, Paisley Deer Head Wall Mount – BananaTreeStudio via Etsy

Great design that’s good for the environment – sustainable, green products:

Patterened, punchy + graphic, other great modern pieces for your wall:

DECORATING: sneak peek!

9 Feb

(click to open) here’s a sneak peek of a project i’m working on! i’m using colourful combinations of red, orange and blue tones to create bold impact for a child’s bedroom – these colours are opposites on the colour wheel and will always intensify eachother. to tone it down a bit, i’m using grey as a neutral to balance out the brightness of the other colours. great vintage finds will add character to the space, and the prints will offer up yet another layer of graphic interest.

complementary colours + layers of multi-patterns = fun, fun, fun!
