Endemicworld invited to attend Supergraph 2015!

Endemicworld has been invited to attend Supergraph 2015! We are stoked to be one of only 6 International art spaces and stores chosen for the event.

Supergraph is Australia’s Contemporary Graphic Art fair celebrating design, print and illustration.

From the 13th -15th of February, emerging talent and award winning artists come together in the fair to showcase their works for a range of budgets, tastes and styles.

Inspired to get stuck into creating art yourself? The fair includes workshops, artist- led masterclasses and family events to get those creative juices flowing.

For us, Supergraph is a chance to proudly show off some sweet local talent to the Aussie design industry. Artists being exhibited at the Endemicworld booth in the International Salon include:

Here’s a cool, calm collection for your bedroom – inspired by a cute couple of Budgie art prints! (by artist Margaret Petchell)…

Clockwise from top left:

•  Bird-cage style Bell Basket pendant light, from Freedom Furniture.

 His and hers budgies! Wilbur (in blue) circle framed art print, from endemicworld, and
 Percy (in pink) circle art print, framed, from endemicworld.

 Peyton Queen bed, also from Freedom.

•  Two looks for the price of one! Kip & Co reversible duvet cover, available from LETLIV.

 To keep things soft and cozy – this light grey Geo Throw, from Paper Plane.

 We love this woven hemp Zinnia rug by Armadillo & Co, with its subtle natural colouring. The circle shape ties in nicely with our circle art prints, too. Available from Superette.

 Simple, stylish side table from Freedom.

•  Every grown-up bedroom deserves at least one ‘investment’ piece. Ours would be, in this space, the Angle Table Lamp 2.0 by NZ designers Douglas and Bec - comes in lots of amazing colours but we’ve chosen Lesley Blue here, to tie into the blues in our Wilbur and Percy circle art prints.

The coolest contemporary finishing touch are these wall hooks – the iconic Dots from Muuto (perfect for hanging up outfits, jewellery, etc). Available in NZ from Bauhaus.

 

 

Print Pairs

It’s a little hard to get back into work after the holidays – but lucky for us, our work includes scouring the internet for stylish, inspiring interior design… it hardly feels like work some days!
To get you through the last days of the working week, we’re serving up another round of Print Pairs for you – some of the most popular endemicworld art prints, paired with the spaces we’d love to see them in!

Play-Art-Print-and-Kids-Bedroom

This styled kids bedroom from a recent issue of InsideOut magazine (endemic fave!) is all kinds of rad.
We’d love to see our Play kids’ art print  - by NZ designer Peppermint Studio – on that white wall, as a fun finishing touch…

Protea-NZ-art-print-and-designer-bedroom

Protea art print by NZ’s Cloud Nine Creative. Did you know you can now search our print gallery by colour? Super handy when you’re designing your space to a palette!

Bird-art-print-and-designer-bedroom

We couldn’t resist… pink’s definitely super on-trend right now, and our Claris budgie art print by NZ artist Margaret Petchell also makes a sweet addition to this designer space! (It’s available as a framed or unframed print, but we’d go for a black frame for this room, to tie into the bold black accents of the light, throw and cushion.)

Photographic-framed-art-print-and-lounge-room-furniture

We’re huge fans of the new Ebb photographic print by NZ artist Jenna Smith. It’s both dramatic and calming, and would work so well in a similarly designed space, like this clean, contemporary Scandi living room (LOVE that greyscale geo rug!)

Kids-art-print-NZ-and-kids-room

If this is the standard of nurseries these days, we wouldn’t mind going back into nappies! Love that vintage wicker armchair, and the paper origami pendant light too.
To get a similar look at your placem, choose colourful illustrated prints with a quirky, almost-retro vibe. Like this Don’t Worry Be Happy kids art print by NZ designer Kissy Kissy Kids!

Scandi interior with typographic framed art print

There’s no hiding our love for the modern Scandinavian interior aesthetic – think lots of white and soft grey, with punches of graphic black.
(P.S: Those two rugs layered look awesome!) our Aspire to Inspire art print, designed by Jenna Smith for The Block NZ’s Jo & Damo, would look wicked in this space.

 

 

 

 

New Year, New Look

Ah, January. Our FAVE time of the year! A new diary (blank pages excite us), and a chance to refresh your rooms – to create a new space for the new year ahead.
Here’s a few easy tips to creating a new look for your bedroom, on a budget…

 

framed art print on black bedroom wall

Black is back! If you’re a little nervous (or budget-conscious) about painting a whole room black, just go for one wall, behind the bed, as they’ve done here. Simple and chic – and it makes any art prints you have on the wall really pop!

interior design

Buying just a few contemporary cushions is a quick way to totally revive your bed linen. Have a few sweet little plants around the house or outside?
Pop one at your bedside to breathe a little more life into the space.

Art Print Picture Ledge in bedroom

See what we mean about the little plant on the bedside? Nice!
Rearrange your art prints around the house – taking from one room and displaying in another, grouping them differently than you have in the past.
These small ledge shelves are perfect for above your bed – display 2 or 3 of your favourite prints and add a small keepsake/memento to break it up.

chair and bed

Speaking of switching things around… try a fave chair as a bedside table instead!

photos as art on wall

Relive your awesome summer hols with a casual-cool collage as art on your bedroom wall. Pick and print a bunch of fave photos, arrange, and pop on the wall with washi tape.
Choose colourful patterned tape or stick with one shade – up to you! The best thing about washi tape is how cleanly it removes, so you can play around with where and how you display the photos.

framed print on bedroom floor

Sick of your bedside table? Try a stack of your all-time fave books or magazines. So simple, so effective, and no-cost.
And who said art prints have to be on the wall? Take them down and try a few leaned up against a wall. We like it. We like it a lot!
large framed art print in bedroom

Large art print leaning up against the wall, a stack of good magazines, a little bit of green foliage and a beautiful candle… BOOM, instant bedside style.
