black swan

When I was designing my Swan graphic pattern, I didn't really think about the Black Swan movie. But these graphic movie posters really compliment the feel of the design. The Swan throw pillow covers are available in black and coral reef and can be purchased online in the Mengsel shop.

a week of interviews

August started off great for Mengsel, with two interviews on two fantastic blogs. If you've ever wondered what makes this head of mine tick, this is the best way to find out. The first interview was for my favourite South African interior magazine VISI's blog. You can read the VISI interview HERE.

The second interview was for my wonderful UK stockist, Heal's. The iconic store's blog has a section called Heal's Reveals which has featured amazing designers including Lisa Stickley, Donna Wilson and Rob Ryan . You can view the Heal's interview HERE.

WIN a limited edition "fish & chips" print by Mengsel

Hey y'all. Yes, you've guessed it: one of my favourite things - GIVEAWAY TIME!!! Yay!

My precious London town had a rough week, with all the riots going on. So I decided that it would only be appropriate to give away one of my limited edition "fish & chips" hand pulled silkscreen prints. As you all know, fish and chips is a rather English delicacy and enjoyed best in a cosy London pub with an ice cold pint of beer.

To win one of these colourful prints, you need to leave a comment below, describing your favourite spot in London or what you love about London. If you've never been, you can tell me why you would love to visit and what you would do.

Looking forward to all your comments! Entries will close on Wednesday 17 August at 12pm GMT. I will pick my favourite comment and send a lovely silkscreen print your way.

Good luck!

P.S. The "fish & chips" silkscreen print is available to purchase HERE in the Mengsel Shop and retails for £40.00. The print's size is A3 {42cm x 29.5cm} and will be sent unframed.
