20 of the Prettiest Floral Prints

jenniblog.png

Happy Friday everyone!

I hope you had a lovely week and are looking forward to the weekend as much as I am!

With spring fast approaching, I want to show you a collection of beautiful floral prints that I recently put together. I find artwork is one of the easiest ways to change the look of a room, and with so many on the market you can find some great, affordable designs. I have tried to showcase a wide range of colours, styles and stores in hope that something will catch your eye. A special mention to Jenni for taking my original list from 15 prints to 20 lol!!

In my selections (as always) I have chosen budget friendly options as well as limited edition pieces, that are more expensive. I know that it’s not always realistic to buy new art/homewares every season but flowers are a versatile subject matter that are certainly not limited to spring styling. To make everything that tiny bit easier, I will also list a bunch of my favourite ready made poster frames, as well as a few framing professionals further down. Enjoy!

I love them all and can’t actually decide on my favourite… but what if you’re not a floral type of girl? … or maybe you cannot talk your partner/hubby into yet another flower print- I have you covered with some gorgeous shrub designs! Below are my favourite three prints that will bring life to your home without being too floral or feminine.

Lastly, I get asked a lot where I buy my poster frames from so I will list a few places for you to check out. For the expensive pieces of art that I own, I get them framed at Arts Edge in Joondalup. If you’re in central Perth Gallery 360 in Subiaco are great too. If you’re based in the eastern states, Kara at Forman Picture Framing is your go to lady. If you want a ready made frame, the following stores are where I look first.

‘Frame Depot’ poster frames at Spotlight are probably my fave, especially the timber one in 50x70cm. I don’t know if it has proper glass but it’s not the plastic stuff that distorts the look of your prints. It’s thick like glass but not as heavy (so clueless sorry.) Shop here.

Officeworks have great frames in a tonne of different colours, sizes and frame thicknesses. I know some of the frames they stock are glass (I’ve smashed my fair share of them) but it’s probably best to choose one in person because I can’t remember the brand I bought sorry. Shop here.

Norsu Interiors have a gorgeous range of poster frames and the larger sizes have a string already attached. Gosh a string makes things so much easier to hang!!! Shop here.

Ummm, who else…Country road have some elegant/ streamline frames that I obsess over and they also have a video on ‘How to hang a Frame Wall’ if you’re stuck on gallery wall positioning.  Shop here.

Then of course you have kmart, target, freedom furniture and general discount stores that also stock affordable frames to hang your new artwork in.

Well I hope for anyone still reading, this post has been both eye candy and informative at the same time. I can’t wait to see more floral prints popping up in my feed soon with Spring quickly heading our way. If you have any questions please fire away and I’ll respond as soon as I can 🙂 Have a fab weekend.

Much Love,

Chatting to Kate Fisher Art

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

I cannot believe it is July already! It has been a few weeks since I last posted on here but the break has been exactly what I needed. I have been working hard behind the scenes on some exciting interior projects and I also had a lovely chat to one of my favourite budding artists Kate Fisher.

I wanted to feature Kate on my blog for a few reasons. One, because so many people ask about the paintings in my bedroom. Two, we have a great discount to offer my readers. Three, because I have the utmost respect for artists like her who have taken a leap and created a business doing something they’re truly passionate about. I was an art student at high school and University (Photo Media) so I know that pursuing a career in the creative industries can be challenging but fulfilling at the same time.

The two paintings in my bedroom get a lot of love on Instagram and although I have the originals (lucky me,) Kate had them professionally photographed and made into prints . The two pieces hung in my master bedroom are called Sage for Days I and II.  I have also seen the Nordic Sky- Storm I and II in person because they’re going into a client’s home very soon. The quality is stunning and you can view all Kate’s fine art prints here and original artworks here.

Below are some questions I asked Kate in our chat the other day and further down is a generous discount code that my readers can use in her online store for the month of July.

So tell us a bit about yourself.

Well, I am a wife and a mum to two adorable (but cheeky) little boys who I couldn’t live without. I’m also an indoor plant fanatic and a recovering chocoholic who adores creating things. When I was nineteen I started a kids party and event company which I ran until I sold the business at the beginning of this year. My passion for painting was reignited and as a result Kate Fisher Art was born.

 

How long have you been painting for?

I loved to draw as a child and then painted a lot when I was in high school. I had one of my portraits in an art show when I graduated but after that I didn’t paint for a long time because of business demands at the time. About 18 months ago, I realised I needed to inject some creative energy back into my life – so I started painting again.

 

What do you love most about it?

EVERYTHING! The process itself is super fun, but challenging at the same time! Most of all, I love that art has so much power to change the mood and energy of a room and it’s occupants. I know I’ve done my job when customers feel like their new artwork has created a happier, more relaxed environment at home.

 

What are the biggest challenges you face on a day to day basis?

I’m sure a lot of people can relate but balancing work, motherhood and family life can be tricky, especially when working from a home studio. So much time is invested into the ‘business’ side of things that it can become hard to just say “Right enough! It’s time to paint and everything else can wait.”

 

Do you have any advice for someone wanting to give painting a go?

Just kick yourself in the butt and do it! If you don’t know where to start, you can find some great painting tutorials on YouTube – or sign up for a night class somewhere local.

 

Where do you draw inspiration from?

I’m usually always drawn to colour first. Colour catches my eye everywhere- sometimes it is a patterned fabric and other times, an interior palette in a magazine. I also love nature and would one day love to build a house with a studio that is surrounded by beautiful green tropical trees and plants.

 

Lastly, Has social media been a positive influence on your business?

Yes. I adore Instagram! The people are so friendly and the constant support/ encouragement always amazes me. It’s a great community filled with like-minded people and it has been really beneficial to my business! Styling my artwork can be time consuming but I get a lot of great feedback from my customers saying it helps them better visualise the colours and get an idea of the different sizes available online.
