Postcard inspiration

Postcards are so much fun! Not just to let someone know you are thinking about them, or to announce a new address or to congratulate them with their birthday (see how many things postcards are great for?) … but also to frame in your home. A small piece of art to add joy and color to your space (after removing the texts):

This one is a nice for a child’s room:

And this one would work well for an office space of someone who loves to sail:

And as the costs don’t break the bank, it’s easy to replace them when you are ready for a new style or design.
Try hanging a few of them together to add atmosphere!

A totally different use is to create a mood board. You can use mood boards to make a visual representation of what you would like in your life. You can cut out elements of postcards to make a collage or you can hang a couple of postcards together in a frame … just ideas to get your creative flow going! 🙂

Blue Jeans as base for modern design

A classic blue jeans is an eternal inspiration for designers. I’ve used it to create a cheerful pattern in the colors of the American flag. Pretty on clothing as well as gifts or for home decor. I’m starting with a tote bag, great for shopping groceries as well as for a day in town:

As you can see, this pattern is also inspired by patchwork and quilting traditions.
This tie can be worn casually classic with jeans:

And you may also enjoy it in a living room as pillow:

You can also take a look at the entire collection as I’ve created several more products with this pattern. If you don’t see it on a product that you would like, you can transfer the design to your product of choice (if available on Zazzle).

Teal gift ideas and home decoration

Do you just love the color teal? Then you are not the only one! Today I am featuring gifts and home decor items in the color teal.
Teal refers in color symbol meanings to a recharging of spirits. Visually focusing on this color can bring feelings such as calmness or rejuvenation (and who wouldn’t want that?)
The first product is a gorgeous binder to store sewing patterns or for other fashion and hobby related purposes:

For the home and especially cute for single women:

And are you ready for a new season of yoga classes? You’ll love this personalized yoga mat in teal and turquoise:

And back to work: a laptop sleeve with a striped teal design:

A teal green bullet journal or notebook:

And a lovely chocolate box with your own custom photos:

Of course I created tons of other products in teal, as it’s one of my favorite colors, but for today, I’ll leave you with this gorgeous lamp:

Coffee is always uplifting and inspiring in my view and today I am featuring a painting I created with a coffee theme. I’ve added it to a few products so far. And as always, you can customize, drag or delete the texts. The first is a kitchen tile:

And a pillow:

All products work well to create a warm homey feeling in your living space and are also great to fit into an industrial design interior.

Beacons of hope: new lighthouse paintings

Lately it seems I can’t get enough of painting lighthouses and thus you can find two new paintings in the gallery.
The first one shows a tranquil coastal scene at sunset:
The Lighthouse 4
And the second lighthouse is situated in a rocky coastal area and faces a storm approaching with dark skies:
The Lighthouse 5
Of course you can find seagulls in both paintings, and in the second one the cat Knor also managed to find a majestic place for herself 🙂

Colorful design tiles for kitchen or bathroom

I don’t know about you, but I just LOVE tiles and geometric patterns. So lately I had a blast creating a whole bunch of new geometric patterns and turned them into tiles. Zazzle has beautiful ceramic tiles that are suitable for use as bathroom or kitchen tiles. You get the best effect in this series by combining different tiles. For a creative and bohemian atmosphere 🙂
It was difficult to find a favorite, but here is a colorful one that pops out:

And here is the entire collection:

Interior design in black and ocher

Black and ocher: a wonderfully alive and contrasting color combination that works wonders for your interior. Today I am featuring some items for your home in these colors. Especially if you have a lot of dark colors in your styling, the ocher will pop!

The geometric design gives it class as well, as you can see in this lumbar sized pillow.
And what do you think of a lamp:

The ocher will spread a really nice and warm light in the evenings.

And a tile for bathroom or kitchen. This works best if you alternate with plain black tiles or also plain ocher tiles in a slight variety of colors. That way your end result will be stylish and not too busy.
And last but not least: a pouf!
