Details & Fabrics

I thought I would expand on today’s usual ‘Friday Four’ of inspiration to show you a few beautiful images that I have found. I love the feminine feel of them all, with their vintage touches of fabrics, details and colourings. I absolutely adore the Parisian restaurant window with it’s gilt gold typography and the view of its stunning wooden bannister! LOVE.

To take a peek at more lovely images and inspirations, take a look at the Hana & George Pinterest Page

Happy Friday!

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…

Floral Scent

The sun is finally shining in all its magnificent glory and nothing is more inspiring, in my opinion! I love to leave the window open and allow the wind to enter my home, bringing with it the scent from the florals in my window boxes…SWOON.

Happy Friday to you all and I hope you have a lovely, sunny weekend planned!

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!

Under Beauty

I believe that we are all responsible for preserving history, and avoiding the effects of becoming a throw away society. With this thought, this weeks inspiration comes from the peeling of wallpaper and what beauty lies beneath. Many people strip the previous paper before hanging the new but these four special images highlight the past lives and people that have lived or worked within the walls that are papered.

Happy Friday!

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.

Tuned Home

When I was ‘flicking’ through the online pages of Vogue, I was encaptured by the beauty of these photographs of Florence Welch’s London home.

I love the eclectic feel of this Georgian terraced home, adorned with Florence’s vintage finds and family heirlooms. The home is welcoming, yet some what of a gallery of beauty with the art gracing the walls and the vignettes of her treasures on shelves and in cabinets.

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.

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…
