Whimsical, fairy tale-esque imagery has captured my imagination in recent months—wall art, printed napkins and pillows, and stationary. Perhaps it's the carefree days of summer that have inspired my child-like interest or maybe it's my playful approach to filling our new space with adorned objects. Either way, I wanted to share a recent favorite with you: Papermoth Illustration.

Papermoth's designs are fresh, bold, and graphic, often relying on the print's background to inform the figure just as much as the subject's own definition. Subjects range from lemon trees and dandelions to seahorses and the owls that originally caught my attention.

The images above (details below) are a few of my favorites, but additional Papermoth Illustrations can be found at independent artist David Moore's online Etsy Store. Prices are reasonable, ranging from $18 for an 8" by 10" print to $35 for a 12" by 18" print. The archival prints are of the artist's original illustrations, which are conceived through combinations of painting, photography and digital design. The images are reproduced on premium, archival paper with long-lasting pigment inks.

Soften your space with any of these playful prints:
