If there's one thing we love at Ruby Olive it's colour. And no one uses colour quite like our new favourite artist Claire Desjardins.
Hailing from Canada, she is part of a legacy of artists in her family history. After working for many years as a graphic designer, in 2011 she put down the keyboard and mouse and dusted off her paintbrush. And the world is a better place for it! Her works have been featured around the world, most notably in association with Urban Outfitters, with prints on bags, rugs, bedding and home accessories.
The fabulous use of bright colours, abstract designs and textured paints come together to produce beautiful paintings that come to life. We are absolutely LUSTING after these gorgeous canvasses in particular.
Check out more of her work at Saatchi Art.

We just love handmade things here at Ruby Olive...and we're suckers for a cute ceramic any day!
Online design store KOROMIKO is the brain child of Tracey George, originally from New Zealand but now based in Texas. The central philosophy of the store hinges around celebrating independent designers hand-making their products to produce beautiful, unique objects.
The result is a gorgeous collection of carefully curated, functional objects for your home - here's a pick of some of our favourites x

It's no secret that here at Ruby Olive we love a good gem. But lately we have seen this fun little shape cropping up all over the place! From colourful prints to tiny candies, it seems like faceted gems could be the shape of the season!
