To brighten up your Monday morning, after a very grey weekend, I have some new free iPhone wallpapers for you. I found a new pattern to experiment with and let’s just say, I got a little carried away with all the different colours you could have, so I thought I’d keep the same pattern and have four different options for you to download. I hope you like them, and if there’s a colour option you’d like me to try next tome just let me know in the comments below!
As you all know I love patterns, I’ve posted about them many times, but recently there’s one pattern which is very on trend at the moment and one I used to love even before stars (yes i know!) and I’d completely forgotten about it until now; the Navajo print. This beautiful Native American pattern, with it’s mix of bold and pale colours, used to adorn my bedroom and I can’t believe I forgot about it, but I’m so pleased this graphic print is back.
When researching for this post I found this print everywhere, even in places I was’t expecting to see it, including the coffee machine in Starbucks (a quick photo was needed whist I waited for my caffeine hit.) I also found Navajo patterned skirts, blouses and scarves; two of which I had to buy purely for reminiscent reasons.
I also love old Native American photo’s, they are very powerful shots and the faces of the natives hold so much history within them. I’m beginning to realise that my love of Native America and the Navajo tribes has always been with me and long may it continue.
These are planets as you’ve never seen them before – yes that’s ice cream, or gelato as the designer prefers to call them, and I agree, gelato has an out of this world feel to it. Tom Jueris, a multi disciplined designer now based in Sheffield has created these simple yet stunning and intriguing prints, which focus equally on the not so quite spherical gelato planets and clean, sharp typography.
Each planet seems to take on it’s own personality, with a different gelato chosen to represent said planet. And the colours… oh the colours… pastel brights, which are some of my favourite at the moment, they perfectly balance and compliment the gelato without taking away the focus. These are just a few of the prints from Tom’s Gelato System project and more can be seen on his Bechance page here

I haven’t been on the site for long and I’m in the process of adding new prints to my shop each week, but I’m very excited about this new venture. I really hope you like the prints I’m offering and if there’s a specific photo you think I should be selling from my Instagram page then let me know!
I’m selling my prints as both single and as a collection of four prints (images of your choice) and keeping them quite small, as I think they’re just a little bit quirkier that way!
How about an architecture print?
Or a beautiful flower print?
There’s many more prints available in my shop, with prints constantly being added, so keep checking back, you never know what you might find… and want to buy!

There was a time when the clashing of patterns or colours was a big no no, it wasn’t trendy, it looked silly… but fast forward a few years, it’s now acceptable to clash those patterns and colours, and this is something I’m very happy about. When things clash they look unique, creating their own design within a design.
When it comes to interiors I don’t like things to match either; my mugs, glasses, side plates and cushions don’t match, but yet they’re still a collection to me. They key is don’t be afraid to mix things up, it doesn’t have to be a bold move, just little bit here and there. Try clashing your cushion covers to begin with, you’ll be surprised at how good they’ll look as a collection. If you’re brave enough, clash your furniture with your wallpaper for a striking look!
Remember clashing patterns and colours is acceptable and also lots of fun!
We moved into our house 18 months ago, and were quite lucky as most of the rooms were decorated with a neutral palette and wouldn’t need changing straight away. The only immediate change was the wallpaper in the kitchen, it was big, black and white flowers and seemed to take over the whole room.
I decided (for the first time in a while!) that I wanted wallpaper to replace the existing paper. Usually I stick to paint when redecorating, but I knew there were some exciting new wallpaper designs available and I had the perfect print in mind… a graphic, black and white cityscape that wasn’t overpowering and complimented our modern kitchen. Perfect.
This year we’ve decided that it’s time to add our own personal touch to some of our other rooms, and again I’d like to use wallpaper within the redesign. I’d like to create a feature wall in our living room using a floral wallpaper. I have a few favourites that could add a quirky twist to my art deco theme that I’m working on, what do you think?
Wallpaper has changed dramatically over the past 5 – 10 years and it’s now becoming fashionable again. Unlike the vinyl and wood chip wallpaper of the 1980s, designs are now art and trend orientated, with some wallpaper becoming a piece of art itself. If you want wallpaper with books, trees and flamingos on, you got it. If you want wallpaper with bright, bold geometric patterns on, you got it. If you look in the right places there is a wallpaper to suit every theme and design. Here are a few of my favourites, I just wish I had enough rooms to use them all!
Over the past few weeks I’ve been busy finding new illustrators and designers to share with you. Coming up are a few of my favourite finds, along with a few of their lovely products they have to offer.
First up is Becky Baur, a British designer who applies her illustrations to textiles, ceramics, cards and prints. With a beautiful simple colour palette and hand drawn style, her designs are easily recognisable and are sold worldwide. This is one designer to keep a look out for.
These are a collection of illustrators I found on the Blue Island Press website, I was attracted to their quirky style and use of subject and colours. Each of these illustrators work make me smile, as they create a sense of positivity within their illustrations.
My final designers were found at a trade fair, with their work showcased on the Curiouser and Curiouser website, which makes artists work accessible and easy to buy. They support many international artists, but again these particular illustrators and designers caught my eye for their quirky style and interesting subject matter.
