Claire Coles

I have recently been looking at designer Claire Coles embroidered textile prints and artworks. Having just done a mixed media week, I am in love with her work. The detail she is able to put into her stitched samples are amazing. I like the vintage feel of her designs, the use of mixed materials and colours are feminine and delicate. She also has stitched wallpaper, all embroidered! Time for a change of scenery in my room I think!

Louise Body Wallprints

Recently I have been re-decorating my bedroom, I really love the vintage bird designs which are becoming quite popular nowadays and have decided to use this as my starting point. While searching endlessly for the right wallpaper I came across Louise Body designs.  There are loads of delicate prints and I managed to find the perfect one for me.

 The print “Harrys Garden” was instantly my favourite and also has a matching fabric! The detail in the illustration caught my eye, previous wallpapers I viewed were more simple with basic block colours. The colours in this print gave me a headstart with my colour sceme too!
