Sarah at Munch has created a new range of wooden wall art plates and tiles. The designs are divided into five categories covering everything from animals and insects, to vegetables, pebbles and birds. Each piece is individually hand painted and numbered and cost around £15 to £18 each. Here are some of my favourites but there are lots more to see online here at Munch.

STATIONERY - sparrow + wolf

Cherie Nute, owner and designer of sparrow + wolf creates stationery and soft furnishings which are printed and made all in the UK. In 2013 sparrow + wolf were lucky enough to be part of the Poundshop's Bright Young Things pop up shop in London Selfridges. In 2014 Cherie has started to focus on promoting the brand and building up stockists in Europe, the USA & Korea. Their newest products introduce a notebook range featuring gold and silver foiled designs with neon belly bands. Also new are gift wrap, tags and cards in three origami patterns. These come individually or in gift wrapping sets. The origami patterns are very popular as they are suitable for all occasions. And finally there are matching cushions with lovely bright luxury pom pom trims. See here for more sparrow+wolf and also on Etsy and Noths.

NEW RANGE - wild & wolf

If you were a fan of Wild & wolf's popular 'Folklore' range (which P+P featured here back in Jan 2011) then you will be pleased to know designer Nina Jarema is back with new designs. Wild & Wolf have launched Folklore "Night & Day" which adds lots of new pieces to the range. The enamelware collection created for the home, camping, festivals and picnics has Nina's wonderfully illustrated creatures set in an enchanted woodland of rich dark blues, yellow and orange. See the range online here for trade or to buy head over to retail.

WALL ART - karoline rerrie

I discovered the beautiful tree and floral artworks by Karoline Rerrie at the online shop Howkapow, although having first seen her work in the masquerade postcard book. Karoline is an illustrator and screen printer based in Birmingham, UK. She creates screen prints and greetings cards which are sold in art galleries and exhibitions all over the country. You can find Karoline's blog online here or google for a gallery/shop near you.
