CLOSED Giveaway! Win our exclusive Campfire screen print

5 Nov

UPDATE This giveaway is now closed – good luck to everyone who entered! The winner will be contacted by email later this week.

It’s one whole month since the Decorator’s Notebook Shop opened its virtual doors and to celebrate, we’re running a fantastic giveaway! In a slightly tenuous nod to bonfire night we’re giving away an original Campfire Screen Print to one very lucky blog reader.

Win this exclusive Campfire screen print at Decorator's Notebook

The Campfire screen print is one of our personal favourites… it was designed exclusively for us by Double Merrick, a brilliant illustrator who lives and works in France.

Together with den building, homemade catapults and Horlicks; campfires are the stuff childhood memories are made of. We created this nostalgic print for adventurers young and young-at-heart, who know the irresistible draw of flickering flames and a warming meal at the end of a day in the great outdoors.

The print is hand-pulled in Britain using three colours of ink, each printed with a separate silk screen. It is printed on thick archival-quality A2 paper.

Time for the picture round… a quiz!

4 Mar

I have a reputation amongst my friends and family for being the least competitive individual on the planet. They’re nearly right, except I love a quiz!

So I’m kicking off the week with a little treat for you (well ok, me). Litographs make lovely posters where the design is made up from the complete text of the book it depicts.

But can you work out which books these are?

Tin ceiling tiles: the answer to my living room dilemma?

3 Jul

So, the dilemma of what to hang above my sofa continues and eight months after I wrote this post the wall in question is exactly the same.

Until now. Well, perhaps.

I’ve seen a few rooms decorated with these lovely embossed panels on Pinterest but have only recently found out what they are and, therefore, how to search for them. They’re tin ceiling tiles that were used in grand old houses in the American south.

Needless to say, they’re rather too blingy for me when used as intended, but search out rusty painted ones, divide them up and beautiful, subtle wall art is born.

Some people have thought of clever alternative uses for them – they look gorgeous as cladding for these kitchen units in photographer Debi Treloar’s home and left shiny they make an unusual glam headboard.

So, what do you think? Would a collection of these look really great here? And if you agree, do you think I should go for a regular grid or a more haphazard display of different sized tiles above my sofa?
