We take inspiration from one of our favourite female artists to style a colourful abode for bub. Because monochrome nurseries are fun, but feminist inspired ones are infinitely better. 

I remember studying Frida Kahlo’s work at school during the HSC. Her personal story captured my attention just as much as her vibrant use of colour and symbolism – a signature in her auto-biographical paintings.

Frida Kahlo was an iconic artist of her time, whose work is still loved to this day. A visit to the Art Gallery of NSW is on my list of must dos as they are currently featuring some of Frida Kahlo’s works in an exhibition.
