Feature | Mollie Makes

We recently collaborated with the Craft Queens at 'Mollie Makes' to create a free wallpaper for readers to download onto their desktop, phone or gadget. We were asked to create a design for November, with the only request of a winter theme we didn't want to make the design too Christmasy but for it to still have a festive feel. The design is made up of hand drawn mittens and florals along with a hint of geometric triangles and a sprinkling of glitter gold snowflakes! We were inspired by the current winter trend for pastel shades so we used a pretty lilac, powder blue and marshmallow pink colour palette. We hope you love the finished design and if you head over to Mollie Makes here you can download the design, there is also a desktop version featuring a calendar for November and even better you don't have to pay a penny! Whilst your there pop the kettle on and have a read of the lovely feature they have written about us...
Thank you to Mollie Makes for this exciting opportunity!

Studio Space | Going For Gold

Today we bring you a bit of dreamy desk/studio inspiration... It seems every desk should glisten with a little gold, we have put together some of our favourite gold desk accessories and studio styling below. One of our personal favourites is the gold sausage dog Sellotape holder (we really need one of these it's a fact!). Gold styling seems to work really well with a white desk space to create an ultra chic look to any space, but if your not wanting to 'go for gold' completely we are sure those gorgeous patterned pencils would be a good place to start. We hope you enjoy these pretties on a grey thursday afternoon! Keep a look out for more studio inspiration coming soon...

Hello October!

Where is the year going?

We know we sound a little old questioning how fast the time goes but time is just flying by so it's here we welcome in October! September has been a very busy month in and out of the studio, we are working on some exciting freelance briefs at the moment which are all to be kept hush hush for the time being although we are finding this difficult and almost bursting at the seams to share our latest news! Today we found a little time to make an illustration to say "Oh Hello!" to October and write a blog post. Time has been short recently, with so much work on we plan our days down to the minute and the blog has taken a bit of a back seat, but we are still here drawing and designing away behind the scenes and promise to be back really soon.

Let's see what October will bring for Alice Perry Designs!
