Folk Art Jug by helenmoss

Folk Art Jug

There is a very clear aesthetic for narrowboat decor; the colour scheme must follow a strictly defined palette of deep red, forest green, dark blue with cream or black. The styling is traditional with folk art panels and objects like milk churns and flower tubs on display (preferably filled with red geraniums). I don't know who enforces this rule, but I guess the Style Police must be out cruising the canals and rivers at night, spary-painting over any narrowboat who infringes these rules with a sweet pastel pink polka dot or a chrome and leopard-skin make-over.
It's very pretty. :)

This is so quintiscential (sp??) Love this type of art. A crisp and detailed picture. Sounds like you've been having a gentle, peaceful time. Mind you, I rather like the idea of the chrome and leopard skin make over!! :-)

I have to admit it's not our jug - it was on the boat moored up next to us - I haven't found the shop that sells canal boat decor supplies yet - there must be one somewhere!

Boats on the river remind me of when my eldest was young and liked Rosie and Jim. I love the photo and the colours of the jug :)
