Colour Favourites for the Year Ahead
With the globe’s leading brands each recently announcing their ‘color of the year’ for 2023, its looking as though we are going to be seeing a shift away from 2022’s calming green and lilac themes and a move towards a selection of warmer and more invigorating hues. The popularity of the ‘maximalism’ decor trend could have something to do with this. It is set to continue into 2023, and its focus on bold patterns and highly saturated colours seems to have influenced the colour choices for this year ahead: taking a walk on the more wild and vivid side.
Home Decor Trends for Winter 2022
The darker days of Winter are a great time to experiment with some new lighting to help brighten your home, or to add a splash of colour with some new soft furnishings and artwork.
Autumn Inspired Art
The colours of the autumn season are a rich collection of deep red, warm ochre, and scorched amber hues. These burnished colours, along with the drop in temperature and changing flora and fauna of this time of the year, have the ability to conjure up a host of feelings within us, like nostalgia for days gone by; collecting conkers and walking along leaf strewn streets whilst trick-or-treating, a sense of anticipation for the upcoming winter festivities and cosy nights by the fire, and a wistful recollection of the days of summer as we bid them farewell until next year. It is not surprising, then, that autumn has long been a source of inspiration for artists.
Awesome Animal Art for World Animal Month

Feline Art - How Cats Have Inspired Artists Throughout History
Our obsession with, and adoration for our feline friends has endured for many centuries. And a great illustration of this is seen through their representation in art throughout history, from Ancient Egyptian tomb art, Japanese woodcarvings, and Impressionist paintings, all the way to current day contemporary paintings and an endless stream of quirky internet memes.
A Brief History of Father's Day
This day of celebration for fatherhood is said to date back to the early 1500s when the Catholic Church supported its celebration on Saint Joseph's Day, otherwise known as 'The Feast of Saint Joseph'. The day reveres the "Nourisher of the Lord" (as referred to in Catholicism) or "the putative father of Jesus" (as known in Southern European tradition), and so was a fitting time to mark appreciation for Fathers.
