Studio Emma KauffmannMy talented friend, artist and blogger Emma Kaufmann of Emma’s Pet Portraits got in touch recently offering to add some much-needed bursts of colour to our living room and new home.


A lover of bold home decor anyway-the kitchen is red and yellow with black and white tiled floors, with the lounge and the rest of the home, neutral in contrast in a palette of pastel pinks, blues and greys allowing the artwork and furnishings to offer the bursts of colour and vibrancy, reflecting my personality perfectly.

Love Birds, Little Owl, Green Dog, Mummy & Baby Giraffe, Pop Art Pug, Puppy Love and Yummy Hummingbird. An animal artist, this collection is the natural move adding splashes and splotches of colour to any room in your house.

My boys adored them and Oliver eagerly enquired, ‘Wow, are we going to keep these, Mummy?’ So cute!

Floor cushion

lounging on a floor cushionThe cushions are made from luxury faux suede and the images on the front are created by dye sublimation printing technology that actually heats and dyes the image into the fabric providing a washable, colour-fast and wear resistant finish (so important with little people). The style reflects a silk dye look and the hummingbird design is also available as a silk scarf.
