We absolutely love this SOOUK print from Southwood Living.

It seems such a strong message right now, to stand together (socially distanced) and not be selfish. Think of your neighbours and loved ones and let’s make this work.

Have this powerful emotive print on your wall, for a positive lift whilst confined to your house.

Now (and always) and more than ever, support businesses. So many beautiful products that can still be delivered to your door.

We are constantly looking for new art prints, new artists, new designers, new print makers, new illustrators, new typographers and other creatives to admire and use their work to adorn our walls. We create gallery walls, look for originals in second shops and markets, read up on latest trends and often just fall in love with a piece and frame it.

Figurative work has long been popular but there are more modern styles of work emerging in the last few years and it’s strong trend being seen in the big name print houses and interiors stores. But how about having something more unique, getting creative yourself and trying your hand at a new skill.

Life drawing classes can be found in all the major cities and towns, in art schools, colleges, community centres, church halls… it’s always good to check local press for latest information

Explore life drawing and perhaps get to create your own art for your wall, discover a talent or just simply for fun and enjoyment and to then run off and buy somebody else’s work but appreciate even more the work and talent behind it.

Search the internet for classes in your area or work from home with photography and invest in a good tutorial book like Life Drawing or Life Drawing in 15 Minutes

In 2018, Alice from award winning blog Alice In Scandiland opened her bricks and mortar shop in Cornwall. Having been selling vintage for a while and having an amazing eye for great homeware and interior design (just take a peak at her blog!) it was a great natural step to move into retail fully.

If you don’t happen to be in Cornwall, never fear, as her beautifully curated range of homewares for both adults and kids, vintage and gifts is available from her online store as well. Definitely worth a visit and you might be lucky to still grab a sale item too.
