My New Watercolour Print By Yao Cheng Design


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?

    Ooh I love the last one! So pretty! The watercolour softens the geometrics.

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

      @Chedva – There’s something very soothing and calming about the blues, isn’t there!

    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!

      @Jenny – Yes, huge! I feel like watercolour is having a massive resurgence in popularity.

    I’m really drawn to the blue section. That landscape watercolour is gorgeous!

    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!

      @Martie – Yes, totally summer at it’s best! My pleasure – thanks for reading. 🙂

    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

      @Fiona – I agree, that forest print is just mesmerising! Glad you love these blue hues as much as me!
