Bryony Lloyd Desperate Housewife print

Looking for some reasonably priced art? Take a look at the work of Bryony Lloyd, here illustrated by her Desperate Housewife print

Bryony is a London-based artist who describes her work as being inspired by the nostalgic and the mystical. This print definitely leans towards the former quality, depicting a glamorous 1960s era woman complete with leopard print swimsuit, martini glass and mid-century style side table – you can have fun speculating on her back story yourself. 

The price is very reasonable too: an A3 giclee print costs £20.

1920s textile design tea towels from the Courtauld Gallery

Twenties tea towel

This Courtauld Gallery tea towel, based on a 1920s textile design, is possibly too beautiful to use on your dishes.

It's based on a textile design from the 1925 Exposition des Arts Decoratifs – the World's Fair that gave us the term 'Art Deco' – and reflects some of the dynamism you'd associate with that movement.The Courtauld have also produced a Tropical Birds design tea towel dating from the same period which is equally striking. 

Something of a bargain too at £5. Frame them and get some instant art for your walls.

Metroland print by Blue Print x Donald Short


Though perhaps not the most fashionable subject matter, Metroland is celebrated in this blue print by Donald Short.

Used to refer to the suburban areas to the north west of London served by the Metropolitan railway, the detached house used as a repeat in a print is typical of the housing built in such Metroland areas – often criticised for being too similar to each other and, well, a bit boring. 

It's livened up a bit here by using the cyanotype process that was commonly used to reproduce architectural plans or, in other words, the blueprint. 

A signed edition of 100, each print costs £30.

Brennan and Burch tape wall stickers


Long surpassed as a music format, the cassette tape still remains a favourite with designers. Another new product using its instantly recognisable form is this set of tape wall stickers from Brennan and Burch.

The work of illustrator Lisa Brennan, there are six different printed vinyl designs in a pack, which measures 50cm square. With a fun, cartoonish element and though it's the wrong era of musical technology, the bright colours give them a Pop feel. 

Apparently a limited edition (though I'm not sure exactly how limited), a pack costs £30.
