Dream in Green


This vintage illustration of the impressive Strelitzia reginae is lovely, with its wooden slats. Is it too much to match the gorgeous dark green colour with the day bed, sheep skin and potted plant? Well, no: the white wall keeps it all in check.


Melbourne furniture store Pop & Scott matched their Dreamer couch in seaweed linen with fine art prints by Lisa Sorgini. They are intriguing photographs of tropical blooms immersed in water.


Dealing with a small hallway or a boring area? Consider circus themed wall art to make it lively. And why not choose a coloured frame, like a striking red one? It will be a great match for most circus posters.

Botanical illustrations in dark greens look mighty fine in combination with black and white prints. Choose a posse of cool plants and fab black and white furniture and accessories for maximum impact.




This display of furniture and accessories by Barker and Stonehouse has wonderful wallpaper as a backdrop. The dark shiny greens and the combination of banana and palm leaves make it pretty original.


Boutique guesthouse 28 Kothi in Jaipur has this great little corner featuring botanical illustrations from a local artist. They look great with the cool chair and also locally made lamp and vase.


Illustrations are fabulous, but a photograph of a dense forest can look really grand too. This one adds interest to the living room and makes it look extra spacious. It’s as if the room has an extra window overlooking the jungle.

Dutch designer Fabienne Chapot’s clothes in palm print fabric are a big hit. Whether you pick the dress, shorts or shirt, the items will bring a smile to your face and even on the dreariest days make you feel like you’re on holiday.

Circus Stars


Would you like a circus themed bedroom too? Mix and match with safari style to create a grown-up atmosphere. We love this unique 30’s circus poster and its beautiful wooden frame. Also pretty great: the sisal carpet, the stuffed animals and the vintage bed.


Cool idea! With full-scale marquee lights you can create a grown-up circus style at home: they’ll make your living room absolutely spectacular and theatrical. Find your letter lamps at Etsy.com.

Now this is a statement. An antique, supersized circus poster used as a room divider. This thing is one of a kind, that’s for sure, and we love how it bathes in the spotlights. Maybe we’ll find ours in an antique market one day.



Restaurant Joya in Amsterdam impresses with its eclectic decor in earthy colours. It’s full of unique finds from all around the world. This huge vintage piece of circus art is one of those pieces. It’s photographed by bloggers cityguys.nl


Look at the funny and smart office of illustrator / designer Tad Carpenter. The vintage circus print with its strong typography and roaring lion really stands out. It is complemented by the impressive 3D letters. The large pile of books is a creative idea, too.


Decorating a chimney is about finding balance. A strong piece of framed art like this vintage circus poster will lead the way. Place your accessories at different heights and choose items in the most important colour of the artwork.


Now, what to do with an odd sized side table like this? It would be a shame to not use it. Put it in between rooms with a huge circus print above it. This way it functions as a space divider. A white frame will make sure the ensemble doesn’t become too loud.
