Modern bedding fabrics with plaids and stripes, flowers and chevrons look dynamic and optimistic. Water color style floral patterns, blurred prints and tender floral designs add softness to modern bedroom decorating ideas, creating inviting and relaxing bedroom decor. Abstract spirograph prints in neutral and bold colors, gray and cream and black and white bedding sets with stripes are latest trends in bedding fabrics and furniture upholstery that offer unusual and interesting interior decorating ideas for 2012.

Art Inspired

Painterly looks was another motif that was seen at the show. Most recently it was spotted on dinnerware and has now transferred over to home furnishings. Tozai's collection with Dransfield & Rossincluded Starving Artist, a collection of decorative accents featuring painterly scenes. Fringe's Florista collection also found inspiration in watercolors, as did Midwest-CBK's 

Tozai

Water Color Garden which was inspired by Monet's water colors. At C&F Enterprises, the artwork of Paul Brent was transferred onto pillows and another collection of pillows feature the watercolors of artist Jen Callahan.

Flower Power
Florals play a big role on the table next season. But they take on a painterly look. Lenox and Mikasaintroduced 

Mikasa

several dinnerware collections with this look. Mikasa's Dining Redesigned line featured four new patterns inspired by watercolors: Garden Palette Bouquet, Garden Palette Floral, Garden Palette Meadow and Garden Palette Vine. Wedgwood's Harlequin Cuckoo design finds inspiration in the company's archive pattern books from the early 19th century. Done in four pastel colors - pink, light blue, peach and pale green - the collection also features a painterly look.



And flowers were the main theme at Waterford as well. The company's latest Fleurology collection includes a range of vases with companion glass flowers. The vases are done in a variety of colors adding to the floral bouquet.

Clark also sees florals and floral motifs popping up this season. “They're being explored in depth in textiles and tabletop,” she says. “[Flowers] are incredibly happy. When things get shaky we look for objects that bring us joy,” she explains.

What can you learn from art licensing trade magazines?

An important task in any business is research, research, research. And that is true with the art licensing industry. Art licensing trade magazines are a good source to research the industry. They contain not only articles by industry leaders but they have press releases and advertisements of artists and art licensing agents. All contain valuable information.

There are three art licensing magazines; Total Art Licensing (TAL), Art Buyer (AB) and the newly released Art & Design Licensing Source Book (A&D). They are printed in the UK and also have free digital versions. TAL and AB issues are published in January and in May and A&D is published in May. Note: Advanstar, the publisher of License! Global magazine use to publish the Art of Licensing supplement several times a year but it has not been published recently.

Researching the industry is not just learning how to license art but finding manufacturers that license art, knowing the key players in art licensing, and also knowing your competition. Below are some suggestions on what to look for when flipping through the pages.



Articles

Magazines often contain informative articles about all aspects of art licensing. Articles can range from interviewing licensing experts to recent trends. Also observe the name of the person writing the article and the names of the artist, agents, or manufacturers being interviewed to discover key players in art licensing. To gain more information about art licensing, search the internet for those names and examine other magazines, websites and blogs that the names appear.

Often there will be an article(s) about future licensing show(s). It may include seminars and who is exhibiting. Use the information to help you decide if you want to attend or exhibit in later shows.

Press Releases

1. It does not cost anything to have a press release (PR) published. However, the challenge is getting the publisher to publish it. Read the PRs in each magazine to learn what kind of information should be included in PRs for that magazine. This will help you write one that will be published.

2. Many PRs announce licensing deals. Read PRs to find manufacturers that license art. Then search the internet for their website and look at the art that is used on their products. Decide if your art fits before contacting them.

3. Also look at what style of art and themes have been recently licensed in PRs. This shows what art the manufacturer thinks will sell their products. Use that information when creating new art. For instance, if greeting card manufacturers are licensing art that has simple girly girl themes (high heels, purses and hats) then "maybe" it would be a good idea to have your version of that theme in your portfolio. But keep in mind that what is shown in PRs was licensed about a year ago and manufacturers may be looking for something new by the time you create the same theme.

4. Studying PRs is one way to determine if your art is licensable. Compare your art with the art shown in PRs. Is your art as polished and skilled as art on the products? Have you created themes that are licensable? Read "Editorial: Not all Art is Licensable" for more information.

Advertisements

1. Advertising in licensing magazines is an excellent way to show art. But it is unlikely that you will get a licensing deal strictly from the Ad. Read "Is it Worthwhile to Place Ads in Magazines" for more information. But if you plan to take out a Ad, examine the different Ads to get ideas on how to layout your Ad. Note: The cost for a half page Ad in the magazines mentioned above is about $300.

2. Look at the art themes pictured in the Ads to see what themes artists are creating. If the same theme is in multiple Ads, then most likely it is one that many artists think are licensable. For instance, Santa and snowmen in Ads are usually prevalent because manufacturers need them each year for their Christmas products. Also look at what themes are missing. It could mean that they are not licensable but it could also mean that you will be the first to create it for licensing.

3. Knowing your competition is important in any business as it is in art licensing. For instance, if you are a fine art painter, then your competition will be other fine art artists. Looking through art licensing magazines will show you who they are. These artists are already established in art licensing and competing against them in getting licensing deals is very difficult. By examining their art, think of ways to differentiate your art from them. For example, create licensable themes that they do not have.
