    I’ve been cloud spotting, and not just while I stare blankly out of a window trying to come up with another interesting way to describe Christmas decoration no.1018…this weather based shopping report says clouds are forming and for once it’s a welcome sight!

    Bild pears poster, 50 x 40cm; £4, Ikea

    Yes, it really is £4! This chic pear print (if pears can indeed be chic) will make a minimalist statement against a plain white wall. For a super cheap update, try sticking the print up with a flash of neon washi tape or add a Ribba frame for just £7.

    A Rose is a Rose is a Rose; Honey Honey; I Do I Do I Do posters, 50 x 70cm, £55 each, One Must Dash

    Although still in their signature monochrome finish, the latest offering from One Must Dash is a change from their usual bold, graphic prints. These delicate florals look beautiful displayed in a trio or if you can make your mind up on which one, try framing a single print for a simple but striking piece of art work.

    Wise words from Clerk Ink Well

    by  • Friday, April 27, 2012 • Craft, Decorating and interiors, Lovely websites, Stylish shopping • 3 Comments

    For all you letterpress lovers out there, here’s a little Friday afternoon treat. Clerk Ink Well (based in, yep, you guessed it – Clerkenwell. Clever!) are Huw Griffith and Tessa Nicholson and they have a lovely 19th century Wharfedale letterpress. Huw is arty and Tessa likes words and so together they have come up with a few posters with fun slogans…

    They use the finest handmade paper and hand mixed vegetable based inks. Prices start from £45 (unframed) and are available to buy from the Clerk Ink Well website. Bon weekend all et bon nuit (je suis suffering somewhat from post-editorial awards fatigue). Sigh. – Alice
