Influenced largely by mid century design illustration, Scandinavian ceramics, the kitschy 1980s and 1970s textiles, Lisa Jones is one great illustrator. Have you heard of this London-based talent before? If not, you’ll want to visit her website, Lisa Jones Studio, to preview her work which ranges from cards to tea towels, books and prints.
Lisa ships worldwide if you worry, and her shipping prices are affordable to the states and she accepts Paypal – even more reason to love her! Here is a preview of the cuteness that is Lisa Jones.
Let me guess, you have your eye on that blue house print and the pink hearts in a jar card too? Or? :)

In the advertising world bold typography is often used as a key ingredient to create an unforgettable ad. In modern homes, typography displayed in the form of prints are used to create an unforgettable room — lots of people display prints that rely solely on text to convey a particular message, always something meaningful to them.
I just heard from Made By Girl founder and designer, Jennifer Ramos, about a new line of Love and Hello prints (16 x 20″ and $25 each) that she just rolled out — I’m sure they’ll be a hit with their sleek charcoal background and white lettering with your choice of either Hello or Love in multiple languages. There is also something quite subtle about these posters that you may not notice upon first glance. In each of them either Love or Hello in English can be found hiding in light gray. Did you catch that?
How did she select the languages? Jennifer picked the top fifteen countries where her readers tune in from to read her blog each day. How thoughtful!

In my last post about wallpaper I included a link to some samples that were framed as art. Did you click on that to see more? Okay good. Now to show you a fabric snip as art. This is by the lovely blogger and illustrator, Ishtar Olivera, who is from Spain and has framed a piece of Heather Ross fabric.
It’s the simple things I like to highlight here sometimes because they can be done in minutes and don’t require complicated instructions because some projects are just too time consuming when you need a quick decorating fix. Try framing some wallpaper, greeting cards, stamps, old photos from flea markets, doilies, scrapbook paper or fabric this weekend. It’s so easy, I guarantee you will like the results. I’ve framed fabric and stamps in the past, it is very, very easy. You can even frame found items like buttons and leaves. Get creative, grab a frame, and see what you can do!
