Lots of colourful, Scandinavian style folk art has been catching my eye on Pinterest this week! It must be from sewing with all these fun printed jersey fabrics from Europe for Orla 🙂 I love some of the simple screen printed shapes that use just one or two colours – screen printing is definitely on my to-do list for next year. Also check out the lino cut print Christmas decorations on the bottom right! I think next year might be all about printing for me. I love the cheerful, painted furniture too – especially when mixed with Scandi style embroidered textiles!
