Living With Watercolours
Water colour paintings and prints have been huge across all areas of design in recent months. From tattoos, home decor and even featuring on soft furnishings, everyone has gone crazy for blurred colourful creations in a water colour style.
Looking to the home, there are lots of beautiful water colour painting print treasures out there, packed full of colour or muted tones, whatever your style and taste there's bound to be something you love. I'm a big fan of the splash look and think it could be a beautiful way to brighten up a room, adding warmth and a little personality.
It's super easy to create your own water colour art work for the walls, there's no rules and it's a cheap as chips way to create a master piece that can transform a room. If painting isn't your thing though, then for just a few pounds you can download a print from an online artist at places like Etsy, saving you time and they're all ready for framing.
As well as artwork, you can even spruce up your bedroom with some gorgeous bedding or add a little fun to your sofa with some lively paint print cushions. Softer tones like baby yellow, blue and pink would make a lovely addition to a nursery and something a little different to the norm. Combined with light greys and maybe even some metallic geometrics, water colours make the perfect base or finishing touches for any room. You really can dress these up or down as much as you want to.
If you're a Pinterest fan, then you'll find lots of inspiration there for ideas you could make yourself, as well as beautiful ways to style your water colour home buys. I really love this look but for me it's something I can see passing quickly that maybe I'd soon go off of? For this reason I'd opt for easy to change options like those listed above as opposed to more permanent additions like wallpapers.
