How to…talk to children about art

Since having a child, I spend a lot less time in galleries than I used to (although I earmarked this and this as must-sees – and made it to this tiny, but perfectly formed exhibition the other weekend). But I really enjoy art – and am keen to introduce my three-year-old to its delights. But….I’m not sure where to start. She enjoys her art classes – but thinks galleries are a similar hands-on experience. Not so good. Sure, we look at pictures at home – discuss what’s hanging on the wall, read an abundance of beautifully illustrated books – but ‘real’ art? Help!…

10% discount on Lucy Loves This prints

This post comes with excellent timing as I’m in the process of redecorating my son’s (soon to be sons’) room (eek sharing – nightmare or dream come true?). As well as re-painting (Dulux Swedish Grey) and re-stickering (dinosaurs), I’m also on the look out for a couple of new prints. Quite fortuitously, I have recently stumbled across Lucy Loves This, a wonderful London-based design studio specialising in hand-pulled typographic prints. Just look at the detail…             As well as the alphabet and individual letters for children, Lucy Loves This also produces numbers – and for adults – tea towels, cards, printed tote bags and a whole collection of city and London neighbourhood-inspired letters (although who says only children would love them?)     Usually priced at £22 per print, Lucy Loves This is offering Wear & Where readers a 10% discount on all orders until the 25th October. Just enter the code wearandwhere10 at check out.…

Insider’s guide to…New York

We love New York here at W&W. I even went there for my minimoon (we planned to take a ‘proper’ honeymoon later. We are still planning to.) And New York fashion week is in full swing. What further excuse do we need to make New York our first-ever Insider’s Guide?…

Great art for less…

We love art at W&W. However, we don’t always love how much art can cost. Which is why The Affordable Art Studio really appeals to us. Selling a range of pieces from artists such as Alan Horsley, Benedict Romain and Olivia Goulding, works start from a fantastic £30. Even better, The Affordable Art Studio gives you the chance to commission a bespoke piece or ask for an existing piece’s colour or size to be customised to your taste. Buying art has never been so easy….  …

Where would you like to go today?

If only we could just throw something in a bag and go where the wind takes us. Amsterdam is one of my favourite cities; I spent my mini-moon in New York and Tokyo looks pretty cool. And I’ve been before as a child and would love to revisit (perhaps as part of a road trip through the state)……

(Americana) Objects of Desire

Oh, say can you spend. We so can. A little bit of Americana, on this of all days, would go down nicely. (Especially the Osh Kosh dungarees. I would pay good money to see Alex’s gorgeous boys sporting them.)        …

How to buy art

Everyone loves the idea of buying art. Not only is it a joy to own a beautiful picture that you love, but that picture can sometimes be a good investment. However, how do you go about buying art when you know little or nothing about it? Pixie Andrew, curator at Will’s Art Warehouse (where pieces sell for between £50 and £3000) has been kind enough to give us her tips on what to look for and what to do when you’re buying art. And, with the Affordable Art Fair  just around the corner, there’s no better time to start thinking about taking the plunge.…
