    Lunchtime lust: Paintbox florals

    by  • August 23, 2010 • Uncategorized • 3 Comments

    Capture summer’s brightest trend and bring florals up to date with vivid, hand-drawn-style blooms used in unexpected ways.

    I love the pop-art shades and floral flashes in the September issue of Livingetc. Forget fussy, feminine prints – these bad boys have attitude…

    For a grown-up alternative to stickers, have a floral design graffitied onto a wall. It allows you to choose your own design, shape and colours, such as on-trend fluorescent pink and charcoal grey .

    Make floral lamp shades more feisty than fussy by going big on scale with giant drums and large screen-printed flowers in rich colours. Flex dyed in a zingy shade adds to the attitude.

    No time to decorate? Simply lay an oilcoth over a table for an instant – and easily changeble – swathe of vibrant blooms. For a personal feel, have the fabric of your choice made into an oil cloth.
