We love Well-Read Women…

At Cellardoor we love interesting words and beautiful things, so when the two collide we know we’re in for a treat! That’s exactly what you’ll find inside New York illustrator Samantha Hahn’s latest book, Well-Read Women: Portraits of Fiction’s Most Beloved Heroines.
She is well-known for her gorgeous watercolours, which have often depicted each season’s hottest trends and she’s put her skills to good use by creating illustrations of the literary world’s fifty most famous female characters.

The book includes the likes of The Great Gatsby’s Daisy Buchanan, Anna Karenina, Jane Eyre, Oliver Twist’s Nancy and the character behind Audrey Hepburn’s most famous role, Holly Golightly, each quoting a famous line from their respective novels.

Who’d have thought we’d be so jealous of illustrated clothing worn by fictional characters? We can’t wait to get our hands on a copy!

We’re pretty smitten with these floral cushions from Bluebellgray‘s AW12 winter peony collection. In a gorgeous palette of rich plums and pinks, each piece features a stunning unique watercolour print – just in time to help brighten up those dull days! 

Check out the lookbook and full collection here.

Full Bloom

We love these prints from illustrator Daryl Feril, who’s beautiful watercolours help to capture to the aesthetic of some of the word’s most famous fashion houses.  We particularly like the the classic monochrome of Chanel not to mention the dark romance of McQueen and the soft feminine elegance of YSL. Beautiful.
