New year, new wall!

prints-wall-2With the advent of the new year, there is no better time to spruce up a tired looking wall. We experienced a considerable influx into our mini (but growing!) collection of art and prints during our quest to visit as many museums and flea markets as we could on our trip to New York last year. We bought so many, we still haven’t gotten around to framing them all!

When you’ve got so much to choose from, it’s always best to make a “draft” and lay everything out on the floor first so you can get an idea of what it’s going to look like on the wall. We chose a collection of bits and pieces picked up along our travels (spot our Oh! My God! I Miss You! print by Nara from MoMA, or our Kabuki-style man from Kyoto for example), some art prints from our favourites Outre Gallery and Society6, as well as a bunch of photos that are precious to us. Personalise your wall – each one of the pieces up there has a special meaning attached to it.

Another handy tip is we use Command 3M picture hanging strips (from Bunnings!) so you don’t have the mess, hassle or permanency that happens when you hammer a nail into the wall! Perfect for renters, plus also good if you stuff up! Just pull it off and start again!prints-wall-4 prints-wall-5 prints-wall-3

She’s always buzzin’ just like…

jan-2013-neon-moodboardThis summer I just can’t get enough of these neon pops of colour. You can wear them in combinations especially in mix-and-match prints, or just add some pizzazz to a monochromatic outfit (neon yellow looks red hot with black and white!). I’m loving these colours on lips and nails at the moment, and here are a few ways you can add neon to your wardrobe and home.
