Colour Coded

Are you wanting to create a statement wall in your home in just a few hours? A colour blocked wall of books in the way forward! It is a creative twist on the usual library way of sorting your books, and is an eye catching way of creating your own piece of art at home. I love the imp actual effect that such a simple method can have in your home, and I couldn’t think of a lovelier way to spend a Sunday afternoon, than sky high in books!

365 Lovin’

Today is the first birthday of the Hana & George blog!

This year has simply flown by and I am still appreciative to everyone who follows and reads my little ‘visual sketchbook’ for their lovely words and support along my creative journey. It is flattering to know that what started out as a personal documentation, is now a source of inspiration and creativity, not just for myself, but for others too!

A million thank you’s and I hope that the Hana & George blog is somewhere that you’ll continue to visit and love…

Stuck Up

I really love this idea of simply using washi tape or tack to sprawl my inspirations on the walls at home and in the workshop. It’s organic in its arrangement and means that all the things that you catch your eye and creative ideas are up for all to see and appreciate!

Do you have such a wall in your home or workspace?

Pen to Paper

I believe that documenting ones inspirations is an important process to carry out. As with this blog, I look at it very much as my online sketchbook…a place to sort what I find on my travels and collate them in the way of posts. I still like to fuse pen to paper and love to fill my sketchbooks full of fabric cuttings, quotes and other such wordings.

Do you keep a sketchbook? I’d love to hear what inspires you!

Fabric Art

I adore the idea of hanging your favourite clothing off luxury silk hangers in your home. Not only is it an ever changing form of art, but it’s also a way of showcasing your beautiful garments that are often too splendid to be hid away in your wardrobe! Mix lovely fabrics and prints against plain walls or showcase your favourite shoes on a shelf…the possibilities are endless!

Pastel Pop

The weather outside may not be cheerful, but these rooms certainly are! The pop of pastel colours add a point of interest in the rooms, while continuing to maintain the relaxing atmospheres. There is nothing nicer than to be welcomed into a room with fresh flowers and foliage.

LOVE.

Deco Off

When I came across these street scenes I was taken back by their beauty and originality. This stunning lighting display adorned Rue de Mail in Paris to promote Linen & Hamp during Paris Deco Off in January. The collection of drums in all their printed fabrics and papers is simple but impactual.

LOVE.

Up Close

I always find that when you take time out to inspect something close up, that even the most everyday of items can hold inspiration. This week I have found myself studying images that I have found and paying attention to not what is just at the forefront of the images, but the detailing surrounding it….

Happy Friday!

Mixed Up

My weeks four images are a combination of inspiration and beautiful images for you to take a peek at. I have always been very passionate about mixed media art and feel that it’s such a diverse form of expressing yourself. Whether it’s manipulation fabrics with paint, or photographs with paper, here are a few images which I adore…

Gold Mountain

I adore the eclectic variety of colours and textures in this space. The sofa with its welcoming mountain of cushions with their clashing prints, and the colourful and calming painting in the background encased in its gold gilt frame…

LOVE.
