Once a year, the big names in Interior Design migrate over to Paris to showcase the very latest designs in their upcoming new launches. The Rue du Mail becomes a Mecca for design lovers, as the fabric and wallpaper big names set up shop and open their doors to the trade and general public. Champagne is flowing, parties are abundant, and the finest fabrics and wallcoverings are viewed in a week of glamour and artistry.
Happy 2017! I’ve had a bit of a hiatus from the blog to focus on other things, but I’m pleased to be back and starting off the New Year with a blog post I’ve been meaning to do for a while – a post about a recent painting I’ve done.
On the 9th-12th of September, Brunel’s Old Station in Bristol housed 50 UK art galleries for the annual Affordable Art Fair. Each gallery showcased a range of diverse contemporary art work, all priced between £50-£5,000.
‘A typical Swedish home is not so much represented by a certain style, as by the care we put into it. We spend a lot of time in our homes’
After the impressive progress the artists made on day 1, I wasn’t expecting there to be a huge amount of new art today, especially with ominous, rainy weather. After a lazy start and brunch with an old friend, I hit North Street to see what was happening on day two of the three day festival.
This is the weekend Europe’s creme de la creme of street artists descend on Bedminster and Southville. An entire weekend where last years artwork is replaced with fresh, original designs from the shocking and controversial, to Cheo’s Mr Men – Mr Graff, this year promises it all…
Last weekend the local artists, craft makers and performers of Southville and Bedminster opened their doors to the public for the South Bank Bristol Arts event. Over 60 venues including 40 private houses temporarily turned into galleries and performance spaces, inviting strangers inside to view their work. I decided to wander around the local area on the Saturday and check out what South Bristol has to offer.
