As part 361 of my ongoing rant about how art and decoration don’t need to be expensive, fancy or hard to find to look wonderful, I bring forward more witnesses for my cause. First up:
these two scribble pieces, one from @jyoungdesignhouse and one from Danielle Moss of “The Everyday Girl”. I imagine they’d be quite satisfying to recreate.
Next up, again by @jyoungdesignhouse, I like these easy ways to add punk to a bit of regency art. I could see it being easy to add a splash of acrylic to a postcard bought on holiday, and then you could either clip it up, put it on the fridge, or carry the joke on and frame it in the biggest ornate frame you can buy. It reminds me a bit of this simple but effective series too.
And lastly, from @nicoledavisinteriors, this corner of family photos. Although the style is way preppier than I’d go for myself, I like the reminder of making something special out of an otherwise empty corner. It also reminds me of my favourite Cup of Jo house tour with the red frames.
Another top graphic from the google team, this one of India’s first female doctor.
Excuse the poor quality of these photos, but I literally snapped them directly from my copy of Elle Deco. Loving the wild wallpaper, jade green hall, mix of rattan and willow-weave textures in the furniture and just the simple yet bold look of this home.
I’ve banged on enough times here before about how easy it is to have things on the walls of your house – postcards, photocopies, bits of music – but I really love how House and Garden UK is now getting on the bandwagon with downloadable, printable artwork. This set is quirky and understated, although I also loooooove the wallpaper.
Loving this jewellery by Charlotte Chesnais that seems to arabesque round the wearer.
What a staircase! Mind you, the rest isn’t bad…

Rather like these projects by Neil Dusheiko architects; they look very livable, and have a good use of light and space. He uses some interesting materials too, like charred wood, which is naturally rain and fire resistant.
