Friday find: Emily Green

Banish black and say goodbye to grey - we've developed a major crush on colour. We blame Melbourne artist/designer Emily Green - one look at her inky watercolours and we were weak at the knees. All our favourite colours collide on the canvas, from cobalt blues and magenta to jade, turquoise and violet. The best bit? Each one is available as an affordable art print. What's not to love?

Emily Green is possibly best known for her necklaces, which she makes from enticingly smooth polymer clay beads in a dizzying array of hues. But it's her latest project that we're really lusting after: quirky contemporary lights designed in collaboration with another Melbourne designer, Dale Hardiman. Crafted from Emily's signature marbled clay beads, with added timber and spun copper details, they're like nothing we've ever seen before. They're available as pendants but we love the plug-in versions, which are designed to be plugged into a powerpoint and  draped over a wall hook - making them a genius way to add personality to a rental without having to touch the ceiling light fittings.
