Interiors Advent Calendar - 3rd December

The third day of our Interiors Advent Calendar looks at stylish ways of decorating the walls. Once the lighting and furniture pieces are installed, once the decorative lights and soft carpets have been added, it’s time to look at what we’re going to put on the walls and make sure we maintain the visual harmony throughout the room.

This gorgeous fashion illustration by Megan Hess celebrates an important fashion event – the Milan Fashion Week, where trends are born and designers compete in showcasing their newest collections. The Milan Fashion Week has seen the birth of many by-now-iconic style brands, and it is always a good reason to visit one of Italy’s most important cultural and design centres.

The illustration is simple and stylishly beautiful, perfect for the home office or living room, and it works for both a monochrome/black & white and colour home décor palette. Its smooth lines and bold contrasts offer enough lightness to make this a versatile image, able to blend into the environment and please the eye without an overwhelming presence.

To browse more amazing artworks, have a look at Megan Hess’ gallery. The world-famous fashion illustrator does all her work with a bespoke Montblanc pen, which she affectionately calls Monty, and works with some of the most prestigious fashions designers and luxury brands around the world, such as Prada, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co, Yves Saint Laurent, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Fendi, Givenchy, Balenciaga, Guerlain, Michelle Obama and Tag Heuer, to name but a few.
