Covetsy: Yumalum’s graphic prints

Realising that I actually haven’t yet posted about Yumalum’s prints, I decided that today I should change that fact. I first saw his work through his own blog Obsessilicious and after looking a little closer saw the mid-Century inspired prints that he was selling on Etsy.

In Mark’s own words, Yumalum (his Etsy store) is “a small and colourful corner of the interboogle which will hopefully brighten your day and your home.”

I’m a real fan of bold graphic designs, both in furniture and artwork, so Yumalum really ticks a lot of boxes for me. Drawing inspiration from the middle of the last Century when we were getting out of the World War II hangovers and looking to the future with clean lines, and primarily Scandinavian designs of dark woods, simple patterns such as the Catherineholm Lotus pattern you see on the coffee pot below.

I wouldn’t say that Mark is ‘harking back’ to an era gone before, but bringing some of this style in to his prints so that they feel modern, definitely contemporary, and warm. I would love one of his prints hanging on my wall to cheer me up each day. Only question is… which one?
