Like so many friends and family have mentioned to me, moving across the world on my own is probably going to be, like, a tiny bit lonely. Along with hastily getting many an Instagram and photo printed, I’ve been scouring the Innernetz for the best prints that’ll make my apartment feel more homely and, well, more like me.
Stay Hungry Stay Foolish and London Prints by Ella Masters Illustration – £6
Ella’s pretty yet kitsch aesthetic will forever remind me of a) her awesome talent, and b) her ability to make me laugh forever. Her ‘Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish’ print is certainly on my wishlist for my living room as a little reminder never to take life too seriously. And for the sake of reminding myself of home, the London one is close enough, right?!
Secrets and Accessorise Prints by Natalie Lines – £10
I dithered for a good hour when I came across Natalie’s shop. Perfectly illustrated by hand and coloured with dimensional shades, her prints are so stylish it hurts. Currently dithering between her Secrets print and her Accessorise 2 print for the space beside my TV.
Frenchie and Pug Print by Jolly Awesome – £19
For my bedroom, this French bulldog and pug print would look perfect alongside home photos, framed patterns and little Polaroids. You just can’t beat an adorable pup!
World Map Wall Sticker by The Binary Box – £29.99
Last but not least, I couldn’t move abroad and not include some sort of world map in my apartment, right? At home-home we have a huge world map in our living room, so I’m kinda keen to get either this destination marker wall decal or scratchable map by the front door as a nod to home and to highlight all the places we’ve been to.
