How Much For This Room?
Lori couldn’t join us today for her final post on How Much For This Room? (insert sad face here) so we’ll be hanging out with the talented Brie Harrison, a Print Designer living in London (don’t miss her greeting cards at Art Angels) soon to relocate to the Suffolk countryside. She has worked for various clients including Accessorize, Anthropologie, Amelia’s Magazine, WGSN and appeared in Illustrator Mike Perry’s new book Over & Over where I first discovered her work.
If you fancy Bohemian eclectic or flea market decorating you will really like this cozy apartment filled with budget finds and things collected from her travels to India, Germany, Morocco, and beyond. Brie was nice enough to not only show us one room in her flat but corners of a few others as well so this week How Much For This Room should have been titled How Much For This Flat – great job Brie!
