5 Unique ways to decorate your walls!

Do you have a blank wall that you keep staring at? You know you want to do something with it, but don't just want an average 'feature wall'. Then fear not, here are some really unique ideas...

1. Wall Murals

I created this London Tube map on my boys playroom wall, and was really pleased with the outcome.  Amazing was a metre rule, paint pens and some stickers can do! 

2. Canvas Wall Art

Funnily enough this was how my business developed as I made for my boys rooms, and then people asked me to make for their kids, and things grew from there.

3. Plates

Whether you stick with one tone and different shapes, or go with a blaze of colour there is a lot of scope to make a beautiful impact with plates on your wall. This is my next project for 2016! 

4. Chalkboard Paint

So many uses! Not always black...

and not always for kids...

This is a definite favourite of mine! 

5. Stationery

What! I hear you cry. But honestly there are some fab uses from everyday stationery including clip boards, for easy change art display...

Or what about using your hole punch to create art with the kids, if you prefer bigger circles specialist circle punches can be bought...

And if you ever get bored at work then what about trying to recreate this post it note creation, just awesome!

So go on, get inspired and get creating!

Can't wait to see your results...

Clarity for 2016!

It's a new year and time to take stock.  2015 was a strange year, wanting to give myself the opportunity to be able to work on Henry, Fred and Felicity full time, I took on another venture in the hope of it allowing me the time to do so, within the year.  Unfortunately all that happened was that I got completed distracted from HF&F and probably did more harm than good in letting it slide from my attention.

The great thing about the festive period is it gives you that time to re-assess and look at the bigger picture.  I had managed to lose sight of the actual goal and the journey to get there had become the goal!  

Having taken on some real challenges to look at my business and my brand over the past couple of weeks, I can see that actually I don't need to do anything more than to concentrate fully on developing my brand.  And i'd love your help...

So I want to go back to the beginning, get back to the roots of Henry, Fred and Felicity, first of all my brand colour palette...

My bespoke service will still be there, however concentration will be on Glasgow Style, Great Britain, Chapter & Verse and Word Games and they will be based on the above palette.  

I'm also looking to introduce something more to my brand, and this is where i need your help, what would you like to see?

I'd love to introduce a bedding range, kids to start of with and possibly include blankets, cushions etc.  again all based around the above palette.  Would this be something you'd like to see?  

Would love to hear your thoughts, check out my mood board and see what you think...
