With spring in full bloom and Jean’s vibrant watercolours gracing our walls, we’re feeling inspired here at the gallery to ditch those tired old greys and embrace some colour! We were excited to discover that the rest of the world feels the same and the hot trend of S/S14 is ‘painterly’ homewares and fashion, which means anything with a watercolour or brush stroke style effect.

Here are some of our favourite painterly products…

Here’s a tip from Heart Home Magazine on how best to incorporate the painterly theme into your home:

“Opt for contrasting colours in strong, deliberate brush strokes for an eye-catching effect, best used on smaller accessories dotted around a room. Alternatively, work watercolour bleeds in pastel hues through every room of the house for a dreamy, springtime feel.”

Even Chanel are at it!
