Art prints & frames, handmade in England since 1982

Get ready for a colourful 2017 filled with mixed patterns, bold blooms, post-modern shapes, and a twist of oriental art. Shy of colour? Fear not, the Scandi home decor trend continues, with a fresh take on nordic neutrals and relaxed geometrics. As we reflect on the popular prints of 2016, it’s also time to look forward and refresh your walls for the year ahead.

1. Remixed

2017 is all about shapes. Whether it’s graffiti, digital art, collage or painting, this new wave of visual abstraction is making its way into every art form.

2. Greenery

Larkspur by William Morris

Pantone’s colour of the year ‘Greenery’, represents refreshment and revitalisation, and when translated into art prints brings a refreshing home update, just in time for Spring.

3. Authenticity

Trace Encounters of the Deferred Kind I and Three Prostrations & Nine Kowtows by Wilma Stone

In 2017 we pay homage to the honest makers and crafters. Whether it’s the hand-thrown forms of a ceramicist, the tactile shapes of a textile designer, or the expressive mark of a painter, we look for honesty and authenticity when it comes to art.

4. Eastern Escape

5. Rediscovery

Rare posters and vintage magazine covers sit alongside contemporary works that have a nostalgic feel. Rediscover beauty in the past and mix and match vintage pieces into a modern interior, for an eclectic 2017 look. Check out our Vintage Enthusiast edit, which captures this aesthetic.

6. New Modernism

Beautiful Estate Southwark by Oscar Francis

Modernism, characterised by its experimentation with form, materials and new techniques, comes to our walls this year in the shape of architectural pieces, modernist masters and new graphic designers. For more modernist ideas, try our mid-century modern edit.

7. Nordic Neutrals

Nordic Neutrals
Bird, Peony, Fauna and Vases by Clare Owen

Forget stark whites and clean lines, this year the Scandi trend takes on an altogether softer look. Think geometric shapes in loose formations, hand drawn illustrations and fluid, painterly shapes in a pastel palette. If you like the Scandi vibe, read our post on scandi living room ideas.
