I may be based in a tropical country, but my buying habits are deeply affected by the changing seasons. Not because our weather changes, more so the shop windows changes. Now as I see cosy knits and comfy coats fill up shop windows – which I have no idea why since our weather is 30°C all year round.
What makes a marriage perfect? Is it how opposite you are, or how similar you are? I think if you want the relationship enough, both approaches could work. Personally, I am very opposite to my partner, which was a tough mix initially. But eventually, as we learned to communicate and work together, the resulting synergy is something I would never trade.
Therefore, when designing the latest collection, bringing together contrasting design approaches was very appealing to me. By combining my love affair with Aztec-inspired tribal print and my insatiable passion for monochromatic sleekness, the outcome was the perfect marriage of prints.
Let me introduce you to our cosiest collection yet. Meet Iris, Liberty, Luna and Indigo from the new Modern Bohemian collection.
Everything about this collection is big, plush and lush. It is made from thick woven linen fabric, printed beautifully and have luscious black tassels dangling from each corner.
From the serrated geometric patterns to luscious tassels, this charming boho chic print may be the most hippie of the bunch. By perfectly balancing bohemian charm with modern allure, this contemporary bohemian pillow design is perfect for any home.
Beautiful, crisps and sharp. This decorative pillow cover design is the ultimate embodiment of less is more. Whether you are a boho babe or a modern monsieur, this tribal pillow cover will suit you perfectly.
Paying homage to the classic Aztec tribal style, Luna is a modern Aztec. It features geometric shapes all in a row. However, by painting it in a beautiful deep blue it brings this classic tribal pattern right into the 21st century.
Entrancing, intricate and hypnotising. This geometric tribal pillow cover is definitely one-of-a-kind. Whether you love geometric designs, tribal prints, or monochromes, this design has it all. A true stand out piece for any space.
There you have it our latest additions to the Whimsical Lane family. Which do you like best or are you like me and simply can’t decide on just one? 🙂
When pondering on writing my first post, I couldn’t decide what was ‘good enough’. Perhaps a good place to start is to take a little inventory of what I’ve learned since setting up Whimsical Lane.
It was a gorgeous day when we decided to head to out for a whimsical picnic. Armed with our homemade tent, plentiful of pillows and colourful throws, we took the trek up to set up the tent. It was hot but well worth it.
Pop art was an art movement rebelling against the traditions of fine art emerging around the mid-1950s from Britain and later in North America. This daring form of art was an expression of post war optimism in a youthful visual language. This art movement is often made up of popular imagery, rendered with a wit, colours and irony creating genius psychedelic pieces of art. Andy Warhol‘s work are probably the most recognisable with his rendition of the Campbell’s Soup Can and Marilyn Monroe. Here’s an awesome source to learn more about Andy Warhol and his extraordinary life.
The story behind this series is mainly all the little moments in life that makes us feel so alive, without us realising it. In this day and age when we constantly hurried off our feet, we forget to experience each and every moment. We always tend to wait for a life-altering event instead of living in the moment. However, when you string these little moments together, it forms the canvas of your life. So remember to enjoy, taste and savour everything you see and everything you feel. In your many moods, find a reason to celebrate.
Do you see that? The black and white statement pillow looks that is perched right next to Juliana looks rather much like Whimsical Lane’s very own Optical Illusion Pillow and it looks so chic sitting there right next to Juliana, Brad and Mellissa.
It has been a long time coming, but we’ve finally launched a new collection! After bringing out many colourful and vibrant pillow cover series, we thought that we would create something more timeless and classic but with a little Whimsical Lane twist. So here’s a closer look at the collection.

Watercolour pillows are absolute joy to decorate a space with because the print’s fluidity and irregularity provides an astounding level of visual interest; while the pattern and design of it is still widely acceptable.
