What is it about watercolour that makes it so darn appealing? I literally cannot get enough of this look (case in point right here), so I was thrilled to discover the works of Yao Cheng. My living room (you can take a peek at it on the UK cover of my book) is a riot of citrus brights, so Yao’s Citrus print was the perfect piece to lend my sideboard vignette a vibrant and exotic summer vibe, don’t you think? As well as a range of beautiful prints (just look at those blue hues – so good!), Yao also sells a cheerful range of tea towels, too. Which of her designs do you like best, folks? Where would you hang your favourite print?

  1. Super choice on the fruits, it’s my favortite as well. Love this artist!

  2. You always introduce us to the best pieces of art and artists. The waves print is stunning. Thank you!

  3. Will, what a great discovery! I love them all but the blue ones really speak to me. It is my favorite color, after all.

  4. Love the prints; and the packaging for the tea towels. Watercolour prints on textiles seems to be such a big trend now, and they’re so much more interesting to look at than a flat print!

  5. I feel the same way about water color prints especially if there are lots of different shades of blue – summer as its best. Didn´t know the artist! Thanks for sharing!

  6. definitely the blues …. the forest print in particular is stunning.

    amazing how good art can change a room. i have a painting in our spare room at the moment and I hate it and it’s ruining the room…….. so needs to be changed

    these blue prints are very calming and spiritual

  7. hi Will – thank you for the measurements for your cabinet yesterday. did you have an idea of price at all ?

  8. Finally checked out Yao Cheng! Love the prints and will definitely have to order a couple for the new apartment!
