Monday Must Have: Paperfashion


Image: Emerald Beauty by PaperFashion

At the moment, I’m in the process of updating our hanging decor – I’m looking for prints and images to update various spaces around our home. The two priorities are our bedroom and living room. Where we once had quite a retro industrial feel to the images, with photos of salvaged objects and archival drawings of butterflies, I’m feeling the need to change things up and moving towards more use of colour. In our bedroom I’d like some more feminine images with fashion illustrations and watercolours and one of my favourite illustrators is Katie Rodgers of PaperFashion so I thought I would share her work with you today.

The other reason for choosing this particular image is that this week, I’m following a bit of a theme for Florence Finds. Every year, Pantone announces a ‘colour of the year’ and this year it is Emerald. I have to say, although in design circles the announcement is thought to be very influential, I have been following the choices for the last couple of years and have never noticed them spark a huge trend. This year is no exception, however it has stolen my heart completely. I realised that I wear quite a bit of emerald green and am drawn to striking interiors where it is the main colour. So this week I’m going to share some Emerald (or just green) fashion choices, how I wear it, and how to decorate with it. I hope you like it. :)

Happy Monday readers!

Love,
Rebecca

Found: Miss Capricho Watercolour prints

I’m always on the look out for beautiful prints for my walls and recently have been having a real obsession over watercolour illustrations. When I spotted these over on Decor8 I just had to share with you.


Images from Miss Capricho

By Miss Capricho, bursting with colour, they’re feminine, romantic and a little bit quirky, thanks to the subject matter including sushi, coral and fungi as well as the super-pretty butterflies, I though these were just perfect to brighten up your Monday morning.

I’m loving the idea of them in an all-white scheme as a splash of elegant colour, or particularly in a pale kitchen or bathroom, lending a dose of personality to a space.
