My Yorkelee Prints are Finally up (and I’m Smitten!)
It took me a while to figure out where all of the new art was going in my forever home after I moved in. I spent weeks and weeks leaning different pieces against various walls around the house, until I finally found spots that felt just right.
Of course, there are still many holes to be filled. Probably another eight spots, at least. So brands… if you’re reading this… you know where I am! But back to the matter at heart.
The uber talented Kate from Yorkelee Prints was kind enough to send me a few of my favourite pieces from her online store. Choosing the best ones for my home was like choosing which cocktail to have on a Friday night. Much like the drinks on a booze list, you can’t have them all. So I managed to narrow down the ones that spoke to me the most, and this week gone by they finally found their spots on the wall.
Yorkelee Prints: Chic, and sometimes Irreverent
Irreverence is my favourite word when it comes to interiors; “Showing a lack of respect for people or things that are generally taken seriously”.
I like the rooms in my home to feel sophisticated and somewhat effortless on a whole, but then sprinkled with a little irreverence. A decor pieces that’s naff, or silly, or cheeky, or downright odd. Jonathan Adler is the king of this decor style, and I plan on getting a few of his pieces for the home soon because they’re truly something.
What I love about Yorkelee Prints is that some of their work also features this sense of naughtiness. As soon as I saw the Bitch, Please print I knew that this brand was akin to my own. And that was the first piece I locked in for the wall near my staircase.
The art you see in front of that, an abstract piece titled Ink Figure, spoke to me because it’s hard to figure out exactly what it is. A person? Man, woman, child? What are they doing? Is there just one person or two? I don’t know! And that’s why it rocks.
Above my front entrance table hangs The Styler Protea (down below); less irreverent and more beautiful. It sits beside a Melbourne city print I got from Mapiful. And although the print features moments of pink, it’s in quite a muddy tone, which fits in wonderfully with the overall colour palette of my humble abode (black-grey-white).
Supporting Local feels good, right?!
I plan on locking in a few more pieces from Yorkelee in the coming weeks because I still have my master bedroom and guest bedroom to deck out. And you know me; I love to support local creative types who have the guts to go after their dreams.
