inspiration: andy warhol's cats

Lately I have developed a bit of a crush on the early illustration work of andy warhol, in particular these beautiful cats (apparently he was a big cat lover). I must admit to never really being a fan of his pop art but I just LOVE these illustrations - so pretty and delicate - very special!

i am in love with: harvest textiles

I was lucky enough to receive a harvest textiles cushion for christmas and I am totally in love with it. I adore the way they mix colour and pattern and their work feels really special, like owning a piece of art. I recently went to a creative talk where the harvest textiles girls were speaking and I came away feeling incredibly inspired. I have been planning to design a range of homewares for a while now with my sister and hearing all about their journey was just the thing I needed to spur me on - thanks harvest textiles!

etsy crush: ashleyg

The first thing I ever bought on etsy was in 2007 and it was a set of prints from ashleyg. I still completely adore those prints and I am in love with all of her new work too. She also has some extra cute pattern designs here - very very inspiring!
