So I had a couple of hours to kill in between friend dates the other day so I took myself along to the National Gallery here in London. I hadn’t been in YEARS and had totally forgotten how incredible it is – I was wandering around slack-jawed gazing at the intricate ceiling mouldings and smashing into tourists left, right and centre…oops.
There were some incredible works of art on display but I have to say my all time fave is still Monet.
Total cliché I am aware but the vibrant colours and splatty brushstrokes (that’s the technical terminology) get me every time.
So anyhoo I’ve been avoiding talking about painterly fabrics etc in design as the whole of Blog Land has been raving about them for so long now, but my little cultural jaunt has left me feeling inspired.
In my brain I kinda have merged the ombre painterly trend with the floral painterly trend, so I guess some of these are not for the purists.
Enjoy lovelies and let me know what you think!
