The impact of colour is boundless. Certain shades enhance well-being and focus, while others boost motivation and creativity. Whether you're drawn to bold hues or gentle accents, harmonious palettes or diverse mixes, explore ways to add inspiring and vibrant colours to your interior—no painting required.

Adding colour to your home can transform your living space into a vibrant and inviting haven. One of the most effective ways to do this is through art prints. At Bean and Bemble, we offer a unique collection of art prints that can make a bold and colourful addition to your home or office decor. Designed and hand-illustrated by British surface pattern designer Michelle Dodds, our prints promise to bring a burst of colour to any space.

The Beauty of Bean and Bemble Art Prints

Each piece in our collection is meticulously crafted to ensure it stands out. Our art prints are created using the Giclée fine art printing process, which is considered the gold standard in the industry. This method involves printing on museum-quality, heavyweight matte 200gsm paper. The result is a stunning piece of art that not only looks beautiful but is also durable.

We use archival fade-resistant inks to ensure that the colours retain their brilliance for a lifetime. This means that our prints will continue to brighten your space for years to come. Additionally, our prints are available framed or unframed, giving you the flexibility to choose what best suits your style.

Made to Order and Eco-Friendly

All our prints are made to order in the UK, US, EU, and Australia. This not only helps us reduce our environmental impact but also ensures that you won’t have to deal with any customs fees. By producing locally, we can deliver your art print faster and with a smaller carbon footprint.

Trust Your Instincts

When it comes to choosing art, it’s essential to trust your instincts. Buy art prints that you genuinely like. Art should evoke an emotion or feeling when you look at it. It should resonate with your style or personality. At the end of the day, it’s your money, your style, and your home. There’s no point in getting something you don’t really love.

Complementing Your Interior Styling

While it’s fine to consider how a piece of art complements your interior styling, the primary reason for buying art should be because you love it. If you buy art solely because it matches your decor, you might get tired of it quickly and end up regretting your purchase. Instead, choose pieces that speak to you. You can always find a spot where they’ll fit beautifully, and they’ll bring you joy every time you see them.

Planning Your Art Placement

Once you’ve found a selection of artworks you like, the next step is to plan where to place them around your home. Sometimes you’ll know right away where a piece will look best, while other times you may need to experiment with different locations. Take into consideration how the artwork will fit with your interior, but remember that if you love a piece, it will always find a suitable spot.

Using Colour to Transform Your Space

When selecting art prints, pay close attention to the colours. Is there a dominant colour that stands out? This can be used as an accent colour to inject further colours and energy into a room while keeping everything unified. Unlike large furniture purchases or extensive decorating, art prints are a low-commitment way to add colour. You can easily move them around or switch them out if you want a change.

Perfect for Renters

For renters who can’t change their wall colours, colourful art prints are an excellent solution. Landlords often paint rooms in neutral tones to make spaces appear larger, but the right art prints can trick the eye into thinking you have a vibrant, modern interior scheme.


Choosing the Right Pieces

To add a much-needed injection of colour into your home, consider whether you want one large statement piece or a collection of smaller pieces. A large statement piece can make a huge impact and feel more formal and sophisticated, while a collection of smaller pieces feels more casual and can disguise unattractive features in a room, such as a TV.

Reflecting Your Taste and Style

It’s important to choose art that reflects your taste and style. Do you prefer punky neons or soothing pastel shades? By selecting art in your preferred colour palette, it’s more likely to complement future furnishings and decor changes. Art can inspire an entire decor scheme or tie a room together. You might find a piece of art that you love and use the colours within it to influence your choices for soft furnishings and wall colours.

Art as Inspiration

Art can serve as the inspiration for your whole decor scheme or be the final touch that ties everything together. If your room is already decorated, choose art that complements the existing colours. If you’re starting from scratch, let the colours in your favourite art piece guide your choices for other elements in the room.

Living with Your Choices

Once you’ve picked a few colourful prints and lived with them on your walls for a while, you’ll likely fall in love with how they make you feel. You can then start incorporating more vivid tones through soft furnishings like cushions, rugs, and throws. Eventually, you might even feel confident enough to paint your walls in bold colours or choose vibrant fabrics for your furniture and window treatments.

Building Colour Confidence

Building your confidence with colour through art can lead to dramatic changes in your home. Starting with art prints is an easy and affordable way to experiment with colour without the commitment of major renovations. Over time, you might find yourself more willing to embrace bold choices in other aspects of your decor.
