Moodboard: State of the art

Even if the closest you get to appreciating art is picking up a few pieces in Ikea for your hall, it’s easy to be impressed by the bold brushstrokes of the Impressionist masters. Introducing a varied spectrum of colour can be tricky to pull off, but with a cohesive theme to tie it all together, and a watercolour washiness to dilute the vibrancy, it makes for a delectable spring theme.

You could also take your cue from this real-life wedding inspired by Dutch still life and paint your big day with a bit more punch. One thing to note: we love a well-executed idea, but we’re not sure how receptive a venue will be to an Art Attack-esque giant mural of a panda on their front lawn.
