Yesterday I was working with one of my lovely clients, helping to get her home ready to put on the market. Home styling is a really important step to consider pre-sale, and I'm excited to be adding this Auckland-based service to TDC Style. If you or anyone you know is needing help in that area, please get in touch!
Another fun job I had recently was helping a client source some black and white prints for her home in Australia. Something that was right up my alley, it also led me to finding many more prints that I'd love to buy! Even if you're not as monochrome-mad as I am, a black and white print will mix in beautifully with colour, either on a picture wall, layered and leaning against a wall, on a shelf or hung solo. There are some standout posters that keep re-appearing in the gorgeous Scandi-style interiors that I'm constantly pinning, posting to Facebook, blogging about or adding to my moodboards. As such, I get a lot of readers asking where to buy them, so I thought I'd put those clear favourites into one post for easy reference.
The Andy Warhol posters are simple, bold and feature quirky phrases to add fun and whimsy to any interior. While they can be purchased from the Moderna Museet in Stockholm and Malmö, sadly they are not available online. If I ever have the pleasure of visiting Sweden, I will definitely be bringing home at least one, starting with the 'All Is Pretty' poster - my favourite!
La Maison D'Anna G, a gorgeous online shop in France has a great range of posters, and they ship worldwide. As well as the Playtype G, and other Playtype Posters, Anna sells the beautiful range of black and white typography prints by Swedish designer Ylva Skarp who I wrote about here. I love both the Personality and Creativity posters, shown below.
Poster No Five is available from Wall Stuff in Sweden, but the good news is they ship worldwide. Judging by the fact that this is their best seller - I've also been asked on several occasions where to get it - five must be a popular number. My lucky number is eight, so I've got my eye on this one! You'll also find some cool number prints here.
Next up is the Cocao Eyes Poster, featuring the Mazetti Ögon logo, by Swedish graphic designer Olle Eksell. Printed in 1999 for his exhibition at the Form Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, take a look here and here for some options on how to buy.
Bodie and Fou has a great selection of black and white prints. The Bat Girl Poster is another popular one. A cute idea for a girl's bedroom, it would add quirky fun to any room of the home.

Of course this is just the tip of the iceberg! Over time I've built up a good directory of places to source affordable online prints, so if you need help or advice, I'd love to hear from you. I hope you all have a lovely weekend. I'm hoping this glorious sunny weather in Auckland stays put!
