The news of the Royal baby is on his/her way has sparked lots of excitement in the Artistic Britain studio this morning!
"Are Prince William and Kate having a boy or a girl?" is the big British question that everyone wants to know the answer to, well today could be the day where we all find out! Here's what we think in the office...
Kate has been known for her fabulous trend setting outfits and she has filled everyone with awe throughout her pregnancy looking utterly glamorous and becoming the envy of all around!
Everyone at Artistic Britain sends their best wishes to the Royal Family and looks forward to the safe arrival of the Royal Prince or Princess!
Not only did yesterday bring great weather but great inspiration, from Harrogate's Home and Gift show!
The day was spent searching for the latest trends for spring summer 13' where we gathered some great design ideas for our collection to keep us fresh and up to date!
'Shabby Chic' is still on the cards for summer 13 with emphasis on Parisian scenes, birds and sketchy line drawings all within a soft neutral colour palette so lots of creams, browns and beiges.
We found that Geometric repeats are having an art deco twist- very 'Gatsby' inspired... with angular and stylised patterns sitting amoungst 1930's style type.
Talking of type there was alot of great typographic art-definately a key trend for this year so look out for lots of 'wordy canvas'
check out a few of our favourites:
we came across some great nautical inspired quotes printed on distressed wood to give in that rustic seaside look...
Overall it was a great day and we all came away with lots of fresh and exciting ideas!
Have a look at the Shabby Chic Trend which is inspiring interior textile design on the high street.
The parisian feel is strikingly hot at the moment and can be spotted everywhere! Keep your eye out for vintage postcards and botanical scenes as this style of canvas would look beautiful in your living room!
Its summer (finally!) and that doesn't just mean jetting off into the sunshine but it's a really exciting time of the year for students all around the country. The newest designers, artists and makers graduate from their university! We went to New Designers in London to meet this year's fantastic crop of fresh talented designers!
