new dwell home collection

after months of anticipation, we were thrilled to receive Dwell's new spring line - the prints are perfection!

the peacock dove motif is a modern spin on a classic nature motif. printed to imperfection, this timeless piece has such a wonderful, hand-painted feel.

we adore the new gate ash architectural print, off-set in a way that that subdues the sophistication of this print in a truly accessible way.

more images of the dwell home collection are available on their website
