Between her TV hosting duties and super successful interior design career, Shaynna Blaze spends a lot of time on planes, which is what provided the fodder for her latest collaboration with Urban Road. “When Suzie and I decided to do our third collection, I knew exactly what it was going to be. It’s inspired by my years of travel around Australia and overseas – staring out of a plane window, and taking in the different shapes, patterns and palettes of the spaces below,” says Shaynna.
Titled ‘In Plane View,’ the collection is a series of aerial landscapes – a celebration of nature from a topographical point of view. “This collection, I can really see, can go in everybody’s house, and in every room,” says Shaynna of the versatile range.
“The collection is more lifestyle, and it’s pattern, it’s texture, and it’s also about micro-snaps. If you look at a landscape as a whole, you’re looking at the big picture, but because we’re zooming in on areas, you can also imagine a farmer working in a field, you can imagine a car driving by, or even a surfer in the ocean. I like people to look at artwork and put themselves in that place, and I feel like these pieces do that.”
Comprised of 12 new designs, the collection, out today, features warm, earthy sands and cool, blue oceans alongside vibrant jewel-toned lakes and fields. Think aerial snapshots of deserts, oceans, fields and plains.
It follows on from Shaynna’s successful collaborations with the affordable art brand in 2015 and 2016.
