Artist Profile: Laura Blythman

Australian designer, illustrator and creative director Laura Blythman is renowned for her colourful, hand-drawn  illustrations and lettering. She is so good that her skills are much sought after and she has worked with large companies such as Cotton On kids, Zoo York, Typo and T2 teas.

I love her quirky characters, bright use of colour, interesting typography and that she often includes glitter in her works! Her prints would add a pop of colour to any home and would look especially good in a child’s room.

Shelf Styling

I love adding new bits and pieces to Axel’s room, particularly the floating shelves. They are the perfect place to display treasures, toys and books that add colour and character to his room.

I play around with them all the time as new pieces are gifted or bought so from week to week they look quite different (they could definitely do with a little editing but at the moment I love the jumble of things crowding the shelves!). I have used Pinterest yet again to provide inspiration on how to style them – definitely my go-to website for ideas these days!

Here was my inspiration – notably slightly more refined than Axel’s!
