Mengsel in Wimbledon Time & Leisure

What a surprise when I got the Wimbledon Time & Leisure through my door yesterday! Flicking through the mag, I discovered my "Bigger Boat" cushion cover on page 53 alongside some beautiful cushions by designers that I admire. As a Wimbledon resident, this is just fabulous!

Don't you just love the illustration on the cover? It is a screen print by Putney artist Hillary Hayton. Love her graphic work.

jersey rock

I visited Jersey a couple of weeks ago with some girlfriends and on one of our walks, I had to stop for a photo of this rock on the beach. Couldn't help but be drawn to the colours. That's just a designer being weird...

colour of the day: ultramarine green

I always have such a tough time naming my colours (a fine balance) and I've decided that it is about time that I invest in a Pantone colour chart (a bit pricy, but worthy it). I printed a new edition of 50 prints in my popular "Bigger Boat" design at the end of last year, before going on my travels. The previous edition in turquoise green is now completely sold out and I've listed my new edition and the colour is... ULTRAMARINE GREEN!

Did a bit of research on the colour and it just so happens to be on the Pantone Colour Fashion Report for Fall 2012. Have a look below at all the other colours, very beautiful. Definitely a lot of inspiration in there.

You can purchase the brand new "Bigger Boat" hand pulled silkscreen print in ultramarine green HERE at the Mengsel Shop.
