Inspiring Wall Art

Ever wondered what a Dandi girls gets up to in her spare time? Check out this gorgeous piece of wall art, recently painted into a Mooks store in Sydney by Dandi's very own Manuela Strano. Manuela entered a competition through Monster Children Magazine to design and install a mural in the trendy Galeries Victoria store - and won! She then set about painting her design in the stall over a series of late nights, lucky she isnt afraid of heights.

Check out the drawings below which were her initial entry, the work has now been published in the current edition of Monster Children (first image) available from select newsagencies, and online from Monster Children. We are so proud!

Wonderful finds here! Also, I made an interesting discovery. Here’s an excerpt from an article I wrote about it this month…
Bring Out The YOU In Your Home Decor!
Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Different tastes in decor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?
Bring out the Y-O-U!
Make a statement and let your personality shine through! Add your zing to make it pop. Hang something personal on the wall with a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. The trend for decor is becoming more and more personalized.
Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own individual style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
