k is for kookaburra

i am so into these gorgeous paintings.

australiana mixed with vintage school book.  they tick a lot of boxes with me.  their muted colour schemes,..simplistic story and vintage structure.


these particular ones are done by australian designer lee mathews, and are hung in her children's bedrooms.

they are acrylic paint on old real estate sign boards.

i am so entranced by the one featuring the kookaburra, that i have stuck it on the wall next to my desk.

i think lottie needs something like it in her room,...  so i shall give it a go.

stay tuned for the results!
