Etsy Picks from Home Arty Home

May 13, 2014

by Jo Casley handmade and vintage goods

Home Arty Home is a UK website that aims to spotlight accessible art as well as artistic home accessories. We asked Artistic Director Vince to share some of his favourite picks from Etsy’s community of UK sellers.


There are so many great artists and creative crafters on Etsy producing unique work, so I was thrilled when Home Arty Home was asked to curate a small selection of some of my current faves for Spring. At Home Arty Home, I try to feature artistic items for the home that are stylish and make me smile, and I hope you’ll feel the same about these picks.

I’ve selected art prints of the British Isles, as maps work well in all settings (plus this is the UK blog!), delicious cushions for a hit of fun colour, contemporary art prints from artists that put their own signature to enduring mid-century modernist style and artful aprons for sunny barbecues in the garden (or simply for looking good in the kitchen).

Inspiration: The British Isles
