charlotte mann

oh my goodness, speaking of home decor, i want Charlotte Mann to come and decorate my plain white walls with her sharpie. yes. sharpie. Ms. Mann is a British artist who uses black markers and a white background to create stunning rooms within rooms. she even did the backdrop for the Peter Jensen Autumn/Winter 2010 fashion show at New York fashion week. her work leaves me in awe. doesn't it look almost dollhouse-ish? i adore it!


  1. How awesome! I can't believe it's sharpie. I love the way the colorful chairs stand out from the black and white background.

  2. woooo...all that from a black marker? what a strong imagination...

  3. that really is inspiring. Some people amaze me!

  4. Oh wow, her work is amazing! The top two pics kinda remind me of Aubrey Beardsley.

  5. OHMYGOSSSSH! i love this!!!
    i love the fire place and the 2nd to last one! i'm about to move and now all i can think about is how to get this in my room!! hahah.

  6. Nice reminder that you can't be limited by what you don't have... a sharpie did that!

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
