New kitchen wall art, plus a giveaway with Bertie & Jack

One evening last week I missed an entire episode of House of Cards (season four) because I was so engrossed in the Bertie & Jack website. I’d never come across their brand before, but when they got in touch and offered me the opportunity to choose one of their funky wall art designs to be personalised I was delighted – a quick click on their website confirmed that I was going to be there for a while – I literally WANTED EVERYTHING!

Bertie & Jack design and make a colourful range of personalised wall art and cushions with fun, modern designs that are super cool and perfect for the modern home. The Bertie & Jack wall art is all created by cutting out hand-drawn illustrations from mount board and layering patterns and prints behind the cut-out shapes.

I love the story behind the company which was started by Becky and Emma in 2010 shortly after the arrival of their children – Becky’s daughter, Bertie and Emma’s son, Jack. They had just enough savings to invest in a small market stall umbrella, a small amount of materials and pay the first month’s rent at their street trading pitch in Bath:

We took it in turns with the childcare and managing the market stall; one looked after the babies, whilst the other set up the stall each day. The suitcase we used to display our artwork often doubled up as a moses basket. We worked every evening, creating our artwork, having it ready to sell the following day. The hard work paid off and in 2013 we were ranged with John Lewis (high five us!)

The coolest part about Bertie & Jack wall art is getting to personalise it – you choose from one of the fun designs and then pick a background swatch and add your own personalised message.

After much pondering I decided on the ‘Happy Family’ penguin design with a white frame and the ‘all hearts’ background swatch. We’ve been needing some artwork for our walls in our new modern kitchen for ages and this is just the ticket. I love how it adds a splash of colour and is really personal to us – I had the personalised message “And then there were three 18.12.14” (Taylor’s birth date) inscribed on the bottom left handcorner. What do you think?
