Trending - Brushstroke and a New Inspiration Board

My brushstroke inspiration board
I have long been a fan of the late Cy Twombly and graffiti art, so I am very attracted to the new trend of brushstroke in interior design. I have created an inspiration board using Amanda Nisbet's silk Positano fabric on the walls and combined it with Chinoiserie. Here is more inspiration on using this look in your own home including a couple of great DIY projects. I have created a Pinterest board on Brushstroke here. Have you entered my Charlotte & Ivy giveaway?
