So you need some (more) art in your house… Where to begin..?

I came across this fantastic tool on the Dutch houseplant website Plantsome. It helps you find exactly what you’re looking for. First, you answer questions like: where in your home do you want to place the plant? Does this spot receive a lot or just a bit of sunlight? Do you have pets? How big would you like your plant to be? Then, a few options are generated. Easy-peasy!

I am learning a lot designing this way. There is so much to consider! How to get beautifully fitted repeat patterns, so that you don’t end up with half a tail of a zebra on your wallpaper or bedding with a head attached to it (yikes!)

*POD: print on demand. There are a few very popular sites which offer this, among them is Society6.

I am considering having some of my abstract art printed on items as well! How would this Embrace look on a throw pillow? I wouldn’t mind having that on my couch!

Fine art prints: everything you always wanted to know

A giclée, what is it?
