Friday 18 June, 2021
Returning to grace our Inspiration blog with her curatorial eye is interiors writer, author and presenter, Michelle Ogundehin – welcome back Michelle! Over the coming months, the interiors expert will take us on three #flightsofimagination; sharing her top artwork picks and insightful thoughts on how to use seasonal trends to create a happy, artwork filled, home.
“‘You can’t cancel Spring’ became a rallying cry for many as we emerged from wintering through difficult times. Certainly, the increasing warmth of the sun, and watching bare earth and branches give way to shoots, leaves then bounteous blooms is supremely uplifting.
It is our annual reminder that light always follows dark, and optimism is a powerful panacea against many ills.
Spring also teaches us that nature never hurries. Instead, it is quietly responsive. Flowers turn towards the sun and respond enthusiastically to rain. And yet, we cannot coerce them to grow faster than they will. They wait for the right moment. And then they make the most of it.
And so, the artworks I have selected, in this first of three #flightsofimagination, exemplify to me these lessons in different ways. After all, it’s so easy to forget as we return to ‘normal’, that the pace of life pre-Covid was anything but. We need to slow down to appreciate what really matters. We need to follow the light. We need to watch the flowers.”
*Sigh* that was just the permission we needed to take a moment to breathe and appreciate the beautiful things in life. To peruse more artworks inspired by Michelle’s selection, follow the link below for the Uplifting Nature collection.
