In The Abstract


in the abstract 40

Abstract art doesn’t have to be cold and strict. This piece is very light and feminine, a lovely match for the soft touches like the sheep skin and Moroccan white leather pouf in this interior.

Abstract art even has its place in a warm and cosy interior. The organic shapes and earth colours of these works make them a right fit for a room which is given warmth by a big rug, plants and a rough wooden table.

A large abstract expressionist piece will have a big impact. These shapes are full of movement but the fact that the artwork is monochrome still makes the overall effect very classy.

A simple abstract print, like this one by exileprints, will look pretty fab in your minimalist Scandinavian interior. Try placing it on the floor for a relaxed, artistic vibe.

This dinner space is a lesson in style, with its gracious furniture and striking lamp. The abstract artwork with its little dash of colour gives the room a playful twist. The thin black frame is the ideal match.

This is a superb abstract work, an ensemble of lovely mid-century pebble shapes. Their playfulness is offset by the stone grey background. The wooden frame makes the image a bit warmer and is a great match for the furniture.

This print by Etsy shop DreamPrintDesigns is very inventive. The abstract forms contain mountain landscapes, adding interest and depth. Therefore the print doesn’t need more than a simple black frame.

But First, Ice Cream


but first ice cream 70

Some popsicle or ice cream cone art is a great way to brighten up a children’s room. You’ll create a playful scenery in a flash. Use a thick white frame and display some cute items on the top. This print is by Eef Lillemor.

Striking still lifes are the secret of a distinctive home. Choose an ice cream cone for retro interiors – and don’t forget the clips. If you are more into antiques, choose popsicles in a golden frame.

Ice cream art works well in an interior that has a vintage LA vibe. To create such a setting, collect pictures of banana plants, palm trees and pools. Faded pastel colours and black and white images are key too, just as simple white or wooden frames, or even no frames at all.

Not feeling the classic cone? Popsicles are a hit too. Thanks to their graphic feel, they’ll fit perfectly in modern interiors with lots of natural wood and minimalist design items. Choose thin wooden frames to make your art match the furniture.

A boring corner of a room is updated in a sec with the help of some cushions and brightly coloured scoops of ice cream. Choose a simple white frame to make the colours really stand out. This print is by Showler & Showler.

Frida Kahlo 00

Frida Is In The House


Frida Kahlo 40

This is a very cool take on Frida Kahlo. Take it as a starting point and style your sitting room with graphic and other arty cushions, some graphic home accessories like this tray and a nice zig-zag carpet.

Frida Kahlo 10

A big wooden frame is a great choice for your Frida Kahlo art. Together with a cactus, woven basket and colourful carpet, it will give your room a Mexican vibe. A bright chair (like this vintage one) is a smart choice too.


It’s not all bright colours and boho, Frida looks great in your minimalist bedroom too. Choose a black and white photo portrait to keep things simple but interesting and feminine.

Be inspired by this piece of art. Make a drawing (or buy one) of Frida Kahlo and dress it up with flowers and leaves to make it more soft. This might be the perfect styling trick for your home office.

Want a fabulous bedroom? White bedding, a pretty lamp and a few interesting black and white pictures are a good start. But the huge drawing of Frida Kahlo as a backdrop is what makes this room really great.

This is a quite an unique portrait of Frida Kahlo, made in a wooden bowl. It’s the eye catcher of this marble fireplace and a lovely match for the other beautiful souvenirs on there.

The warm colours of a Frida Kahlo painting are a great match for a room featuring shades of ochre and brown. It will also give a bohemian atmosphere; this interior would look totally different with a stark abstract painting.


Frida Kahlo 22
Why not hang Frida above a rustic dresser with peeling paint, for a boho atmosphere? Green plants are wonderful friends for your Kahlo art too. But the greatest styling tip of all? Surround it with Mexican folkloric and/or devotional wall decor.
