New Year, New You!

Rebecca Poole

With the dawn of a brand new year comes the opportunity for a fresh start. January is often the ideal time when many of us like to rethink our home décor, and figure out what works best for ourselves. A new year also brings motivation to make positive changes.

According to Forbes, more than 3 in 5 people have made resolutions for 2024 that include making positive changes to help their physical well-being, whether this be committing to exercise more often or improving dietary habits. With that in mind, we've put together a few ideas to redecorate your kitchen while you spend more time cooking healthier meals.

A Kitchen Refresh

Many consider the kitchen to be the heart of the home, while the romantics say that the way to someone’s heart is through food - so why not combine the two? We have food art prints available on our website that can add a classic twist to your space and show your love of food through your choice of décor. Here are just a couple of examples to give you a taste of what we can offer!

Camille Pissarro - Still Life with Apples and Pitcher

Art print featuring work titled 'Still Life with Apples and Pitcher' by Camille Pissarro

Camille Pissarro (1830 - 1903) was a Danish-French Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist painter. However, unlike many other artists in his circle, Pissarro painted very few still lifes, and actually did these mainly in the later years of his career. You can view his exquisite painting ‘Still Life with Apples and Pitcher’ at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, or you can display this classic artwork in your own home, available as a high resolution giclée print in a variety of bespoke sizes.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir - Lemons and Orange

Wall art of Pierre-Auguste Renoir's still-life titled 'Lemons and Orange'

Pierre-Auguste Renoir
(1841 - 1919) was a French artist who became one of the leading painters in the Impressionist group. He influenced the likes of Claude Monet and Gustav Klimt further cementing him in art history. Renoir’s style has been described as “sparkling colour and light” so what better way to add a pop of colour in your kitchen than with this food wall art, available in a variety of sizes and with bespoke framing options.

Bring The Outside In

Another popular theme of New Year's resolutions is improving mental well-being. Studies have shown that plants can help us to feel more calm and relaxed, whilst reducing anxiety and stress. Spending time in nature has a positive effect on mood, so when you’re spending time indoors, replicate that feeling with easy-to-care-for houseplants, and adorn your walls with beautifully illustrated flora and fauna.

We have an extensive collection of plants, flowers & funghi sustainable art prints perfect for bringing the outside in, to any room in your home.

This recently coined term describes the growing trend of filling your home with bright colours. Choose from your favourite shades, and coordinate colourful prints to enhance your mood and improve your emotional wellbeing.

When browsing the high street shops during the winter sales, it's easy to get carried away with impulse purchases, but if you stick to a colour scheme, you can find gorgeous colourful artwork that can invigorate your home and inspire your senses. We have a large selection of bold and bright colourful wall art, ideal for adding as much colour to your walls as you want!

Paul Klee - The Harbinger of Autumn

Wall art of Paul Klee's 'The Harbinger of Autumn'

Paul Klee (1879 - 1940) was a Swiss-born German artist who was known for his highly individual style influenced by movements in art such as expressionism, cubism, and surrealism. The Harbinger of Autumn is a stunning art print that brings shades of blue into your home. Blue can have a positive effect on your mood, as it helps you unwind, find peace and brings feelings of calmness and serenity. 

Wassily Kandinsky - Klänge

 Wall art by Wassily Kandinsky titled 'Klänge'

Wassily Kandinsky (1866 - 1944) was a Russian painter and art theorist. He’s generally credited as one of the pioneers of abstraction in western art. His artwork is the perfect answer to adding colour into your home, including his piece ‘Klänge’. This vibrant wall art adds a major punch of colour to your walls, and with the range of shades featured you can tie this in with any scheme. 

Eco-Friendly Habits

If you’re thinking about making eco-friendly steps and habit changes to reduce your environmental footprint, one of the easiest changes you can make is to carry reusables with you. Carrying a tote bag has become an everyday habit for many people, with some choosing to have a tote bag collection to coordinate with their outfits. So whether you’re a seasoned regular of reducing, reusing and recycling, or you want to improve your purchase habits, our range of sustainable tote bags is perfect for you!

Final Thoughts

No matter what your resolutions are this year, it’s important not to kick yourself if things don’t go to plan every day. It takes time to create new habits and every day can be a fresh start - we don’t necessarily have to wait for a new year, but it certainly makes motivation easier!
