Horst Gläsker’s spreading the doctrine of colorful architecture! His simple, bright additions to otherwise grey palettes are a true testament to the power of color and pattern to transform an environment.

Turkish filmmaker Oguz Uygur captures the beautiful art of paper marbling as performed by his parents. See the video here. As a print designer my head is reeling with possibilities! A lot of these screenshots would make very trend ready pieces. The only hang up is how to put prints like this into repeat! If you have ideas, post them below!

Beci Orpin for Built by Wendy

Beci Orpin’s early years were spent roaming the Australian terrain in the back of a landcruiser. After settling down in a commune in Melbourne, Beci discovered her love of drawing which she’s developed ever since. Her whimsical designs are featured on her occasional children’s clothing label, Tiny Mammoth, as well as on collections for Built by Wendy, Jethro Jackson, and Gorman. View more of Beci’s work here.

We love these bird paintings by Swedish art student Johanna Burai. Birds and bird feathers are a big trend in fashion right now, and these are a really sweet and artistic inspiration.
