Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
Beating a tune
As you fall all around
It feels quite apt that it’s been absolutely absolutely heaving it down with rain this week. My little girl has had bursts of additional naps following days of splashing in puddles, with her raincoat hanging up to dry over the radiator shortly after. Manchester isn’t called ‘rain city’ for nothing.
I know it gets a lot of people down, but cheesy as it is, you just can’t make a rainbow without the rain, so I think over time I’ve learned to just accept this as one of those little quirks that grungy Manchester has to offer. With that in mind, as one of Wayfair’s Home Experts, I’ve been noseying through the website and discovered absolutely loads of artwork absolutely saturated in colour, varying in style, but all a different interpretation of rain.
Art around the house is one of my favourite ways to keep rooms looking fresh when you don’t want to completely redecorate. Either by just adding a postcard from a local museum, or a fully framed personalised piece of art. The good thing about Wayfair is that there is a little something no matter what your budget.
Below are my favourites. Let me know which one is yours!
