By Dee McLean, Hampstead Heath in summer

Dee McLean Art

London NW5

Dee is an artist inspired by nature, be it her local Hampstead Heath, Louisiana or Canada - the latter two are important to her because she lived in the former and her daughter now lives in the latter.  Dee has a background in medical drawings but in recent years has returned to painting the natural world using watercolours predominantly. She captures the detail of vegetation while her paintings transmit the relaxed nonchalence of the natural world.  Dee is very committed to communicating how climate change is affecting the planet and her art depicts a changing world. You can buy giclee prints of Dee's original works, or commission a painting.

Original vintage posters are a true form of art with a purpose, designed to deliver a particular message through striking designs and created to grab the attention of passers-by, presenting artists with the challenge of condensing the message or concept into a precise, short visual and written form in a single artwork. They are important items of social history that capture the essence of the time they were printed. 

The variety of sizes, subjects and styles in poster design make them perfect as a gift and adaptable to any interior design, from contemporary to traditional. As original antique and vintage items, they are also eco-friendly. Original vintage posters are recognised as a sound art investment that can be enjoyed every day.

Linen is one of the most eco friendly textiles. It comes from flax, which grows abundantly in Europe and it doesn't need special irrigation or pesticide treatments, unlike conventional cotton which requires huge volumes of water and pesticides. Linen looks beautiful, it drapes so nicely and it comes in different weights. Heavy linen is fabulous for curtains, blinds, upholstery, while finer linen is used for clothing. Here at Ada & Ina, you'll find a huge choice of linens, from plains to patterns and in different weights. So make your interiors eco friendly by using linen for your soft furnishings.

Littleworks Creative

phone: +44 (0)7974 187479

Littleworks Creative offers little works of art by Tamara Williams. She makes her unique pieces using plaster to cast both intaglio and relief plates. Each cast is unique, since no two castings are the same. Even colours can change due to the plaster baking the surface and altering the stability of the inks..Tamara's exquisite artworks always start with a drawing - and much of her inspiration comes from plants. Each plaster tile is air-dried, mounted and framed, and frames are hand-painted. Works are made to order and colours can be specified. Prices from £65
