Top Ten Reasons why you should Shop Small this Christmas

Christmas is coming towards us like a freight train and chances are you still have some shopping to do.

There are a few reasons why shopping in large shopping centres or from huge chain stores is what people usually do for Christmas presents. It’s convenient, cheaper and quicker – we get that.

But when did buying Christmas gifts for our loved ones become a chore that we just want to power through as quickly as possible?Continue Reading →

How to Organise a Kids Room in a Small Space

Kids tend to need a lot of stuff, no matter how small the child is. In fact, the size of the kid stuff seems to be disproportionate to the size of your child – little babies need prams and highchairs and cots and change tables, whereas your teenager only really needs an iPad to be happy!

Your child’s room doesn’t need to be messy or cramped even if it is on the small side. Here are some great ideas for organising a kids’ room in a small space, that are guaranteed to still have it looking fantastic.

What is intuitive art, Print Ark Blog

While all artists create using their intuition to an extent, there is a branch of art now being recognised specifically as intuitive art.

We are very excited to have a talented intuitive artist at Print Ark and wanted to take a closer look into this wonderful  area of creativity.

What is Intuitive Art?

Christina Cerqueira creates stunning original works with watercolour paint that have the ability to connect with something inside her admirers.

Intuitive art means different things to different artists, and each artist will interpret it in their own way. There isn’t really a hard and fast definition of intuitive art.

How to tell your personal story with a Bohemian Home

I was going to title this blog ‘How to create the Perfect Bohemian Home’ but then I realised that if there’s one thing boho is not, it’s perfect! Boho is creative, inspired and spirited, and does whatever it wants, so you can’t really try to perfect it, can you?

There are no rules with boho design because it completely flies in the face of rules. So, this article is definitely not about rules or perfection, but we have gathered some tips and guidelines that you could follow in your Bohemian home design (if you wanted to – it’s completely up to you!).

What is Bohemian home décor?

Bohemian style comes from the French word for ‘gypsy’ and embraces all things unconventional, free-flowing and eclectic. However, there is a difference between free-flowing and just ‘thrown-together’ or ‘messy’. How do you find that difference?

Easy Winter Styling Tips for Your Home

Easy Winter Styling Tips for your Home, Print Ark Blog

Winter Styling for your home can feel like the time to get out the heavy drapes and extra blankets, while all of the fun brightly coloured items get put away until summer comes around again.

Winter styling doesn’t need to be sombre or heavy though, we think it should be no less bright, with soft furnishings and little décor touches to celebrate in the warmer months.

The idea of winter styling is to fill your living space with things that make you feel comfortable, warm and happy, and that kind of wrap you up in a lovely big embrace when you trudge in after a cold or dreary day.

Here are some of Print Ark’s favourite winter styling tips for 2019 (that we think will last much longer than just one season or one year!)
