Another year is upon us. 2018, bringing is hope for a brighter and more prosperous year than 2017. The decorations are down and the walls are looking a little bare (yes it did look that empty before!) and now is the perfect time to start planning that spring clean/makeover ready for the year ahead.
A quick way is to update the focal points in any room – the pictures! There seemed to be a real trend for wall art and prints in the middle-half last year with the likes of Desenio, The Poster Club and King & Mcgaw popping up all over our Instagram feeds. The art that hangs on your walls or disguises those unsightly radiators is a great way to share your personality, after all, a picture paints a thousand words.
So, without further ado here are six picks to update your home without having to the break the bank:
The Poster Club – Ekaterina Koroleva ‘Nude 02’ Koroleva’s gentle line drawing that is both subtle and alluring. Hang in the bedroom or prop against the wall with other calming prints.
The Poster Club ‘Aure April 02’ The artwork is based on the founders grandmother’s drawings from 1941, and the pop of red and blue is just the right amount if you’re not a huge fan of colour in your home!
