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.

AntikBar is the London gallery specialising in original vintage posters covering a wide variety of subjects - travel, advertising, sport, cinema, war, propaganda - from around the world, available to view at their gallery and online, with worldwide delivery. 

AntikBar holds regular original vintage poster auctions and offers professional linen backing and poster restoration services. They provide collection advice and consultancy services and can source posters for collectors, individual clients, interior designers, museums and other institutions. 

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.

Woven Image is an Australian company that manufactures innovative surface coverings and textiles.

Available in different thicknesses (7,12 and 24mm) and lots of designs and colours, EchoPanel is a fun, modern material can be used in myriad ways in residential, office and contract interiors - as wall cladding, space dividers, decorative designs, desk dividers or indeed as artwork. It has the added bonus of being able to absorb sound, so in spaces that are noisy or echoey, it creates what's called acoustic comfort for people. 

EchoPanel demonstrates upcycling at its best because it's taking a waste material and creating a high quality new product from it. It comes in panel form, ready-made freestanding screens, ceiling suspended space dividers and in packs of peel-and-stick tiles - which are great fun to use. 

So if want to update your interiors and have acoustic benefit too, check out EchoPanel - available to order in the UK through The Collective Agency.
