The art business is a competitive one. Just ask the ladies behind local brand Minty Prints.
Born in 2012, Casey Divall and Amy Creek’s business celebrates colourful prints with attitude, fun and a little cheek. But getting your name out there takes a while, they discovered.
It’ll come as no surprise to you that we love to support local, especially when the products are as heartfelt as the ones in this week’s Mum Monday post.
I wish I were super creative. Don't get me wrong, I'm not being down on myself; I can write, I get my craft and DIY on sometimes, and I can certainly style a room. But then there's the sort of super creativity that people like Rachel Kennedy have that just makes you think... woah, this gal is truly something.
I've made no secret of the fact that I'm infatuated with street art. I've blogged about it a few times because I simply can't get enough of the bold designs in this style. When I came across Brisbane artist Matt Stewart's work online, it goes without saying that I had a sort of conniption - in the best way possible, of course!
I love quirky art and this week's Real Room features just that; an eclectic living space that embraces interesting art. Not only that, it embraces casual furniture while giving a generous nod to craftiness. It's the home of Canberra Creative Jenna Bain, who like me admits to finding editing a challenge in her home when it's filled with so many much-loved pieces. She also admits that not everything in her space matches perfectly, which I think is what makes this room so good!
