Inspirational Etsy Art

So we are in the midst of making a list of what to do first when we start renovating the house.

We’ve been here six months now but having a newborn on our hands makes for little time or energy left to start working on decorating our abode.

Meanwhile, my ideas are being nourished by

  • Pinterest,
  • Living Etc Magazine,
  • Ebay,
  • Instagram,
  • Etsy

The way my brain works when it comes to decorating and renovating  is that I’ll fall head over heels with one object and then ideas, colours, shapes will come from that object. It could be an armchair, a vase an old film poster or a table- anything really.

I thought I’d share some of my Etsy favorites at the moment- they may just inspire you too!

Another local Manchester based Etsy seller is The Vintage Binding Co, who have the adorable piece from a vintage children’s story book- I’d have this cooking illustration in  the kitchen.

I’m a bit of a Sci-Fi geek at heart and love the original Star Wars trilogy- if you’re a regular reader you’ll know Harrison Ford is one of my favourite actors. The “I love you/I know” scene is iconic and this Han and Leia poster is a fitting tribute.
