I recently discovered the work of Elicia Edijanto, the talented Indonesian artist behind these exquisite black and white watercolours that depict children interacting with wild animals. I love the melancholic mood of the images and the sheer innocence of the children who seem oblivious to the potential danger of the enormous animals they’ve befriended. Quite enchanting, really.

I found Elicia’s work at drawdeck.com, where you can purchase these prints. Her Instagram feed is also well worth a look.

    Wow so wonderful and to think of monochromatic watercolor painting is too difficult to do. This paintings inspired me today to try this technique. Thanks for sharing =)

      Hi Nel, so glad you felt inspired by the post. Her artwork is really stunning. Good luck with yours. Kath

    I love these, thank you for sharing. They remind me a bit of my favorite artist, Amberlee Rosolowich. Amberlee also uses children and animals, but uses paints in a bit more whimsical fashion. Check out her work, I think you’ll like it. I have one piece and always long for more.

    • On a scale of wardrobe envy from 1 to 10, I'm clocking 25 as I witness the first installation of @fronteriors cane doors for PAX wardrobe frames at a client's home. I think we have reached #ikeahack level 100!

    • Happy National Day to the UAE! 
This beautiful country has been our home and playground for 14 years. When we first arrived, we partied at Scarlet’s in Emirates Towers and spent weekends at the beach, often watching touch rugby on the open beach area (that is now the gardens of the Westin). I had the pleasure and privilege of working for the formable powerhouse that is @thenfd at The Grooming Company, during a time when she was pioneering the grooming industry in this region. Springs townhouses were just being handed over, there were only a handful of completed buildings in the Marina and JLT was an architectural plan. The Burj Khalifa was rising from foundation level, there was no Terminal 3, no Downtown Dubai, no Canal, no Business Bay crossing, no Salik tolls or any Metro lines to be seen. The old Garhoud bridge was a three lane affair that would bring traffic to it’s knees and closed to allow large vessels to pass. We feel really lucky to have seen this incredible city grow and develop to the iconic destination it is today. 
We’ve had our ups & downs, but overall, this country has been amazingly good to us. Both our babies were born here and no matter where we might land one day, this will always be ‘home’ in their hearts. 
PS: these pictures were taken by @nateleecocks sometime last year in the midst of a full-blown sandstorm. Nat, I’m still chuckling at the fact that we just carried on regardless! 
After this bit of Dubai nostalgia, i forgot to mention something and now I’d really LOVE to hear from anyone who also  remembers when @ikeauae was a small retail outlet in Deira City Centre mall!?? #UAEnationalday #spiritofthenation #mydubai #itsbeenawhile

    • We wrapped this nursery up just in time for baby's arrival. Like literally just in time. And we found some beautiful pieces from new suppliers. More on the blog soon.

    • It's such fun having our @fronteriors cabinets to play with in the new studio. We tried this new combination of beige slatted doors with black hardware and it's a beauty - particularly in front of the marmorino wall by @jotunpaintsarabia | Swipe through to get a closer look. This cabinet is built using 2 x BESTA 60x128 frames that are screwed together and supported on a custom leg frame. Add 2 x slatted doors, 2 x sides, 1 x top, 2 x handles and.... voila!

    • Throwback to sleepy mornings in South Africa this past summer, which of course was winter over there. And now its starting to feel much the same over here. Switching ACs off and opening the doors and windows feels like a re-awakening after Dubai's looooong summer! Anyone else loving this time of year?
