Styled: Blonde Wood & Brights – Baby Nursery

Inspired by the blonde wood and bright colours of our new You Are My Sunshine art print, we’ve dreamed up a colourful, contemporary nursery…

kids art print styled

From top:

 Affordable little balls of happiness! This cute felt garland is from Crave Home.

 You Are My Sunshine art print, by new endemicworld designer Bright Creative. This sunny little number is available framed or unframed, and in a range of sizes. This is one print in a whole collection that share a timber-and-brights aesthetic – so you can buy a themed pair or trio for your little sunshine’s room.

 Hang their cutest outfits on this light coat rack (inspired by an iconic retro design), from Collected.

 Designed by and for parents who appreciate contemporary design – the much-loved Oeuf crib is perfect for bubbas, but also converts into a toddler bed when they’re ready!

 Quality wooden worm friends, from Crave Home.

 This affordable round table (available in NZ from Se3) makes a handy cot-side table, and when your little beastie is at toddler age, makes a great low play table.

 A felt ball rug is oh-so-soft under little feet (and ties in perfectly with the balls of bright colour in the hanging rack and garland). Available from Collected.

Styled: Blue Boudoir

Deep blues belong in the bedroom – they’re romantic and luxe, moody and calming. Inspired by our Growing Up In Blueberry art print (by interiors magazine designer and artist Amber Armitage), we went hunting for beautiful blues for a dreamy boudoir…


Clockwise from top left:

  Have flowers in your bedroom every day of the year! (The Growing Up In Blueberry art print also comes in bold Blackberry, plus bright Raspberry and Wildberry colour palettes too.)

  A gorgeous candle is a must in every grown up girl’s space. We love the new range of Element candles from iconic international design brand, Tom Dixon (available in NZ from Simon James). The Water candle comes in a moody blue glass vessel with gold foil writing.

  The faceted Arnold Circus stool is contemporary in form, and timeless in colour. Love that steel grey blue. Available in NZ from Everyday Needs.

  This deep teal velvet bedding from Kip & Co looks – and feels – so luxe. Makes you want to get to bed early…

  New Zealand’s NODI rugs combine Italian design influences with traditional artisan Indian weaving techniques. Pictured here is the TRE design, handmade from just $370.

   Deliciously velvety pintuck cushions – from Urban Outfitters

  Continuing the velvet theme, this boho-chic style cushion, also from Kip & Co.

  Flowers above your bed, flowers beside it. Put them in this Storm Blue porcelain vase, by Danish brand Menu (available in from Simon James).


Styled: Woodland Haven

Inspired by our new Ambrose art print (from a painting by Margaret Petchell), we’ve styled a relaxed living space – where naturals and neutrals go hand-in-paw.

bunny art print styled

1.   The print around which this whole look was based - Ambrose rabbit art print – available framed or unframed. We love the boldness of a black frame.

2.   Off-white and wood pendant light from Citta Design.

3.   Gorgeous sand-coloured soft throw from Freedom Furniture.

4.   A couple of pops of black keep the look from being too beige! This colour-dipped linen cushion from Superette is perfect.

5.   Freedom Furniture’s Studio sofa is soft grey perfection – and affordable! Love the blonde timber legs, too.

6.  Soft candlelight adds an ambience that no piece of furniture or homeware can bring. Ashley & Co candles (NZ) come in the most beautiful amber glass vessels… and they smell divine.

7.  There’s that black again – softened with timber in this contemporary low table – Kasket side table by Citta Design.

8.  We’ve chosen a Reindeer hide because it adds warmth, texture and a whole lot of luxe. Available in NZ through Maree & Co

9.  Soft curves and serene shades – the Danish-inspired Fable armchair by Citta Design is a new fave.



The Art of Display: Pinterest Inspiration

Inspired by some of our recent finds on Pinterest, we’ve come up with a few new ideas for displaying art prints at our place (or yours!)…

To Do: Create a mini gallery wall at our bedside. Pick one or two favourite art prints, and keep an open mind for other printed lovelies that could be turned into unique art – perhaps a souvenir from a memorable time, a favourite photo, or even an old sketch or a cutting from a magazine that is meaningful.

Do you have an all-time favourite print? Let it be the guide for the room’s colour palette. Pick out the neutral(s) – white, grey, sand, black, etc – from the art for furniture and larger items in the room, and then select other colours and tones from the print for your homeware, textiles and accessories.

If you choose a box-style frame (one that sits out a cm or more from the wall and the print), you can also display small items on the top of the frame, or on the bottom lip. Like they’ve done in this image, with the geometric paper decorations.

An otherwise-ordinary corner of a home, transformed into a little pocket of wow.
We love how they’ve used their gallery wall to ‘frame’ the statement chair (in this case, used as a small table) – great little idea!

Two words: Black walls!

Art prints aren’t the only thing that look good on display. Do you collect anything? Hats? Scarfs? Plates? Vintage Books? Grouped items can look gorgeous on a wall!

Styled: Little Girls Haven

Sugar and spice and all things nice, that’s what little girls are made of…
Inspired by new endemicworld artist Olivia Bezett’s darling animal artworks, we’ve imagined a sugar sweet bedroom for a little girl.

Kids Art Print Bedroom

On the wall:

Our colour palette inspiration (greys and pinks) and woodland animals theme inspiration for this space – the Bambi art print, framed or unframed, by Olivia Bezett.

Sweet dreams! Floaty pink cloud wall decals from Good Regards.

Decorate a wall with this felt heart garland from Collected.

At bedtime:

Lovely Candyfloss-coloured pillowcase from LeeAnn Yare’s new bedding range, available from Collected.

Kids’ Bed Linen from The Foxes Den.

A sleepy bear hottie cover to cuddle up with this Autumn, crafted from vintage NZ wool and made by Zippitydoodah, on Felt.

A friend at the foot of the bed – the Bambi cushion, also from The Foxes Den.

At her bedside:

bean bag ottoman from Lujo – great used as a low table.

Woodland rabbit night light with a soft glow, available from Iko Iko.

A shaggy round rug – in kids’ size, from NZ company Kidzspace .


Print Pairs

It’s that time again – Print Pairs!
We’ve picked some of our newest art prints, and matched them with interiors they’d look perrrrrfect in…

Art print and grey bedroom

A dreamy, feminine sleeping space deserves a dreamy, feminine art print. We love Christchurch artist Chloe Ruby’s whimsical pencil sketches – and for this serene bedroom, we’d choose the Sea Girl framed art print in a big A2 size.

kids art print and kids bedroom

Icecream Dreams! A sweet art print for a candy-coloured girl’s bedroom. Icecream Dream art print from only $39.

art prints and dining room

The effect of plain, painted walls, with one or two large-scale art prints, is bold and beautiful! In this space, we’d put two of NZ artist Anna Leyland’s art prints side by side. Voyage and Voyage II - both a limited edition of only 50 – would make a real statement, and they’d inject a little more needed colour and pattern into this minimalist space.

kids art print and bedroom

It doesn’t surprise us at all that the child of NZ interior designer LeeAnn Yare has a room this cool! A funky new friend in the form of this Rad Owl art print would be an awesome addition.

art print and kitchen

We’re totally crushing on this uber-modern black and white kitchen with all it’s graphic patterns. The glass would definitely always be half-full living here. The perfect match for our Half Full art print – framed or unframed – by Oslo.

art print and living room

A brand new art print from Inaluxe, Lover is a quirky little celebration of colour… much like this living room! Don’t be afraid of mixing up colours, patterns and textures – interior design ‘rules’ are there to be fabulously broken!

botanical art print and vintage kitchen

This kitchen is an oh-so-stylish combination of vintage and industrial. We love the pops of greenery from the potted herbs… but think even more greenery – in the form of this vintage botanical Green Tea art print – would be even better!



Styled: Graphic Black Office

Inspired by our Helvetica framed art print by NZ design collective OSLO, we’ve dreamed up a designer studio in bold monochrome…

Black and white art studio

1.  This framed art print is dedicated to that legendary font, Helvetica. A designer’s best friend! Available in A4 right up to a big A2.

2.  Practise your hand-lettering with To Do lists or an inspirational quote, on a speechbubble chalkboard by NZ company Chalkd.

3.  How about a little dose of Mid Century style, courtesy of this retro-cool clock and calendar. Available from Collected.

4.  OK, time to get down to work. We love the simplicity and sleekness of the Shorthand Desk in ‘espresso’ colour (with two hidden drawers). From Freedom Furniture.

5. Your stationery’s gotta look good too, right? FRANK is a small NZ brand who embrace the one-for-one concept. Every item of stationery you buy, they give one away to a child who needs it.

6.  Whistle while you work, with a very stylish Tivoli speaker from Paper Plane. Connects to your iPod, CD player or any other audio device, so you can crank it up loud.

7.  Organisation gets super sexy with this industrial-style tiered shelving system from Freedom. It’s aptly called the Assignment shelf!

8.  A dream office chair – the Sidekick by NZ designer Timothy John. Comes in a range of colours, but we love the black-on-black.

9. Who said rubbish bins have to be ugly? Someone who’d never seen one of these Varpunen sacks, that’s who. Use for trash or as storage for treasures.


The Art of Display

We’re always on the scout for fresh interior design ideas, including new ways to display our collection of art prints. These stylish spaces provided plenty of inspo today!

Lounge with art prints

















The soft grey walls look so elegant – grey is the new black – and we love the oversized type prints. We’d probably pick the initials of the people who live in the space. And… watch this space – we have oversize type prints coming soon!! image via

art taped to walls of studio

Creating a rotating gallery wall by regularly printing out some of your current favourite images (quotes, images to represent your goals, or just lovely pictures) and tape them up any-which-way with washi tape. Ah, washi tape, we love how you come in every colour and pattern imaginable… and how you peel off walls and prints so easily.  image via

office with framed poster

Black, white and blonde… you can never go wrong. PS: You don’t have to hang a framed print! They give a room a real casual-chic feel when just leaning against a wall. image via

large posters on wall

Simple bulldog clips do a great job of hanging up images! Love the use of a stylish Hay box as a little bedside table, too. image via

Now this is cute – using a magazine rack to display prints and favourite ornaments. Love! image via

Macrame is back in a big big way! This gorgeous copper and macrame wall hanging is a pretty easy DIY – more pics and instructions here.

kids room art prints

Such a sweet space for a little one! Love the kids’ framed prints, the favourite jacket hanging up as a piece of art, and the upcycled, colourful stool as a bedside table. image via
