superb blue wren

The Superb Fairy Wrens come and visit our garden all the time, and they are so incredibly small - they are amazing! They have the most beautiful colours, and for their size - remarkably long tails.  Since we are busy working on new designs, it seemed only natural to include one of our favourite birds in the mix! And no matter where you are, you too can have your very own little Wren!  Now in our online shop. :)


And now for the other fun bit - we have three of these lovely A4 Wren prints to giveaway! But we need your help. We are in the process of bringing out our larger size prints in the 40cm x 50cm size and we'd love to know which inaluxe design you'd buy in a bigger size. We can't do them all, so your help will be greatly appreciated in fine tuning the final selection.


Please check out our store and leave a comment below with your pick for the 40cm x 50cm designs to be in the running. Entires close June 4th, with three random winners drawn on June the 5th.  Giveaway is open to everyone worldwide! Know someone who likes inaluxe? Please pass this on :)


Competition now closed.  Thank you so very much to everyone, we loved your thoughts, ideas, and appreciated you taking the time to make this such a success, and so much fun.  We will soon be launching our new range of large size prints - hopefully the choices we make will delight!


And now for the other fun part! The winners of the giveaway are.... KylieVickie and Jaynie


YAY! thanks to random.org for picking the winning names. :) Now all we need is an email from the lovely winners so we can send you print over! Please email us at: luxo.iinet.net.au

I adore wrens and yours especially! Love how their little tail feathers stick straight up.

Kylie said...

He is just fantastic guys! Really gorgeous. I have to say, though, that as much as I love your birds series I think your abstract patterns are more suited to a larger format. So... my picks for the 'GO LARGE!' project are my favourites of your prints... City in Pink, Duchamp's Answering Machine, and Labyrinthe de Roche... just my opinion ;)

Amber Miller said...

My pick for the larger sizes would definitely be 'Flora'. I think it would look amazing on a larger scale. And as second choice it would be 'Coda'. Very sweet little fairy wren too, love the blues.

gabriella said...

I think the large graphic prints eg coda, duchamps answering machine, the kiss, from Copenhagen with love etc would be really effective.
Am having trouble choosing which three to but to hang together! help!
A small series in 'families' eg birds, nature etc would be great so they could be hung in groups or alone.
I absolutely loved the Mother's Day Card too...thanks for sharing.
You two are a great team... keep it up!!

Jaynie said...

hmmm short answer - all of them! I LOVE A Million Short Stories so I'd say that that if I had to pick one - otherwise any of the birds/owls.

Paige said...

"Flora", "Coda", "Duchamp's Answering Machine", and "Labyrinthe de Roche" would all be lovely on a larger scale. I can't wait until the larger prints arrive! So excited!

lamina@do a bit said...

I totally LOVE this little Wren... Gorgeous... and think it should be in the larger size! I also think "Conversations In Summer Art Print" and "Coda" would look fab too... it was really hard to choose though :)

Great giveaway xxx

Deirdre said...

So hard to choose. My top picks would have to be "Sliced Au-Go-Go, Au Naturelle", "City in Pink" and "Duchamp's Answering Machine". All so very gorgeous!

Greetings Oscar said...

'Keep it Simple Circle' is my favourite and would look great on a large scale but also 'Labyrinthe de Roch' and 'Duchamps Answering Machine' would look great too. :)

Corinne said...

Is that what those adorable teeny tiny birds are called? I love them! I went for a walk with my man when we were in Anglesea and saw a million, but he wouldn't let me take one home! :) (Probably for the best!)

I thought this was a really tough ask, picking just one image, so I've picked two. I think they are some of the older Inaluxe designs, but they are still winning: The Midnight Lovers and One Million Short Stories.

Beautiful prints!!nI would choose the 'Belly Rubs and Fox Cubs' print for the 40x50!!m
Great blog! Please visit my blog :)

AVE said...

conversations in summer....it would be so loud in a larger size! x

Jen L. said...

Coda, Duchamp's answering machine and labyrinthe de roche, me thinks! Especially Coda x

Moi said...

I would choose Coda and The Chrysler Building - I already own the latter plus Flora and that little birdy would be the perfect one to make a triptych in my hallway!

kalika said...

So beautiful! I would like large sizes of Duchamp's Answering Machine, Magnolia Light Box and Flora

Chez Chouke said...

Thank you for such a sweet giveaway, I can almost imagine that sweet bird getting a lovely spot in my house! For a larger image I would love to see Alpine Country or Ten Million Short Stories. Keep up your lovely work!

Marta said...

The design I’d choose is the A Forest of three Art giclee or the Superb Blue Fairy Wren. Thank you! Your work is very good. Best regards from Barcelona, Spain. Marta García, martaplayita a gmail dot com

sue said...

Arrggh - how to choose? I think "Hootenanny" would make an awesome larger print - but all the birdy designs would be great - I may be expressing a little avian bias though! The wren is lovely. Good luck choosing your designs!

Sandy said...

I'm loving your new prints, your wren is gorgeous! For the larger size would love Flora, The Chrysler Builder and at least one of your beautiful Owls :) Can't wait until you have them in store.

Laëtitia said...

Thank you for this giveaway ! ^_^
I would like large sizes of "The hopeful sooty owl" and "Belly rubs and fox clubs" ... very hard to choose I love them all !
Have a lovely day x

Jo said...

I'd like to see Magnolia Light Box in large format. Would be perfect for our bedroom!! Love the Wren, we get them here too - so small.

Rebecca said...

Great giveaway, love this new Wren print! Hmm which print to have as a larger version...Sliced Au-Go-Go would be my pick, great for the dining room x

dropstitch said...

I think any of the "simpler" geometric-type prints would be great in a larger size - Chrysler Building, Flora, Keep It Simple Circle. I'd also love to see The Swantones in a larger format though. I can visualise that hanging above our fireplace very happily :)

Jess said...

I will say anything birdie! But then I'm biased, 'cause I adore the little critters. I especially love this print - and of your others, the lovebirds one, too!

Leona said...

I adore your work and am especially crazy about birdies, so would love love love to win this so much. It's hard to pick a few but I would go for Duchamp's answering machine, Coda, Sliced Au-Go-Go, and Sugared almonds for starters. However I would happily have a house full of your beautiful images. The Almanac is so amazing I could look at it all day

Leona xx

Lisa Gutierrez said...

I'm inclined to vote for one of the owls, but I think prints like Flora, the Kiss, and Midnight Lovers would look spectacular!

Colleen MacDonald said...

This wren is my favorite of your birds so far! My choices for the larger print would be as follows: "Keep it simple circle", "Forest of three," and "Coda" but really, any of your prints would translate well onto a larger format!

touchwooddesign said...

Love your new wren - just delightful! I think any of your Mid-Century geometric shape pieces would work really well in a larger size: Conversations in Summer, Sliced Au Go Go, Sugared Almonds. But then the owls would look great in a larger size too!

Alex said...

Designs such as 'One million short stories' or 'The Kiss' would look wonderful as larger prints. You wouldn't be able to walk into a room and not be taken by the vibrant colours and beautiful designs!

tractorgirl said...

You KNOW it's too hard for me to choose. My favourites include the classic Orbital, and I also love Duchamp's Answering Machine. But as for what would look good large, I think it would have to be One Million Short Stories - it looks fabulous, and is a conversation/story starter in its own right!

nonnacookbooker said...

I adore blue wrens.... how I love them flitting around our garden :) For a larger print, I must admit, for me it could be any bird, be it owl or wren :::love,love::: Coming from left field I would also like to see Labyrinthe de roche - all brilliant colours and designs in their own way...!

another donkey design by kate said...

Tough call. But if I had to pick one I would say the kiss

Meghan said...

Oh how I'd love to be an owner of an Inaluxe print! I especially adore your geometrics, The Happiness and From Copenhagen with Love would be great at a larger size.

Goedele said...

Every moment makes a story but Inaluxe does more! Not only by the great colours that are used, but also by the great designs and specific geometric shapes. Inaluxe knows how to illustrate. Dreams seems to be connected with soft patterns and colourblocking figures. Works as "The Happiness", "Flora" & "The Lesser Sooty Owl" makes you smile. Very stylish to brighten your interior this way!!!

Anonymous said...

It's so very hard to choose as I love all your work but I especially love your geometric and retro inspired works. Of the newer works I would choose Coda, the Almanac, Labyrinthe de Roche and DUchamps Answering Machine and for the older works I would choose the gorgeous Flora, Chrysler Building and The Kiss. I also think Balancing Act, Kindred Spirit, Looper and the Bird Talk series would look great in a larger format. Can't wait to see which ones you choose!

Szappanbubi said...

Every pretty pieces are amazingly cheerful with those bright colours :)
I'd choose for a bigger prints : The Swan Lake , Treetop Shenanigans, A Company of Two - Owl and The Kiss :)

Flora said...

I'm totally in love with Conversations in Summer, so would have to say that one.

JaneMG said...

I love your work! I like a forest of three and there was one very similar with a bit more forest, which I can't see in the store anymore (not sure of its name) when I pinned it I had 34 repins and 16 likes, this would look fantastic in my new white kitchen. Also it would match the trees I look at outside my window in northern california, I would, however, love to have a little aussie touch!

Jo James said...

I like the simpler stuff in the large format, like Forest of 3, or Million Short Stories. I just like you work all over the place :)

Effie said...

Wow, not seen your work before but I love it....I love all the birds but I'd have to go with the Sliced Au Go Go

Maren said...

Wow -- I just discovered your blog and shop through cart before the horse and I am immediately in love with your work!! It is almost impossible to pick a favorite... However, the print that first caught my eye was Belly Rubs & Fox Cubs -- that is so cute!!
Cheers from Berlin, Germany
Maren

moerdesigns said...

I just found you through ,cart before the horse, I love your work! I have a background in Architecture and appreciate your use of geometry & color. I agree you could of been architects with your aesthetic and compositions, use of repitition;) I enjoy looking at the work I especially like Coda; love to see it in a large print.
best, moe

igetitart.com said...

Company of Two, Hoot! Hoot!

Jenny said...

I really like the Treetop Shenanigans. Your birds are lovely.

pennydog said...

Any of the abstracty patterns would be awesome big- maybe my favourite for that would be Colour-fall

Charlotte said...

thanks for this chance .... at first I was going to choose one of the owl prints, but then I saw "lovebirds" and changed my mind. I think it would be a lovley gift to give as a wedding present.

TLN said...

I also love the lovebirds, but this would be my favourite: http://www.inaluxe.bigcartel.com/product/a-forest-of-three-art-giclee-reproduction-print-a4-size

Bel - BrisStyle said...

I LOVE your Blue Wren print and would love to have it in my home. I think your A Forest of three Art giclee Reproduction print would make a beautiful statement in the 40cm x 50cm size on anyone's wall!

Vickie said...

the blue wren is gorgeous!

I would pick 'Colour-fall' - I think it would look wonderfully dramatic in the larger size :)

CJG said...

I'd also pick 'Colour-fall." It really caught my eye and I love that it's a vertical print!

Your entire bird series is fabulous, and I think that blue wren is one of the best ones. Thanks for the chance to own one!

InkedMagnolia said...

I love the little wren and would love to have it on my own wall! The print that I would pick for the larger size would be the 'Treetop Shenanigans' print. Though you do make it hard to pick just one!

Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) said...

Actually I think there are a lot of prints that would be great in the larger size! But my two favourite picks are the Springtime Sooty Owl and the Treetop Shenanigans. :)

IndigoElephant :: Sash said...

The Blue Wren is so delightful, I'd love to have it hanging at my place!!
In terms of large scale prints, I can't go past Flora, Coda, Duchamps Answering Machine and Sliced Au-Go-Go. Good luck with narrrowing down the options, there are just too many gorgeous ones to choose from!!

tinagirl said...

I also love the "Treetop Shenanigans" and "The Kiss"!!
They're all divine!

Araya @ Wind and Willow Home said...

Love that little Blue Wren. I would also love to see one of those stunning, colorful owls LARGE. I don't know how you will narrow it down. They are all so wonderful and would be a great statement piece anywhere.

Erica said...

I'm all over Inaluxe like syrup on hotcakes!!! My favourite is the "Alpine" that would be awesome in the bigger size, its extra special to me as it reminds me of going skiing and my hometown which is surrounded by forest.

Melanie Gray Augustin said...

Wow, they are all so sweet! Personally, I'd be more likely to get the more abstract ones in a larger size (the birds which are super sweet I'd probably put in my daughter's room so would prefer it smaller). My personal faves are;
Alpine, Sugared Almonds, Conversations in Summer and Sliced Au-Go-Go. Fabulous work!

Teresa said...

Such beautiful work! I'd love to see the 'Colour-fall' print in a larger size.

Jess said...

There are so many there that I think would look great in the larger size- but my favourites would have to be the ''A Forest of three'' and ''Colour-fall art''

Anonymous said...

I love all the big retro ones but Almanac takes the cake. So here : Almanac!!! Duchamp!! And tie for third, the Kiss and Coda!!

Simone said...

I love them all :) But I love the one you have for this post 'Superb Blue Fairy Wren'...striking colours.

gemma sorrel said...

I love all of them but the Superb Fairy Wren is my favourite - its the blue and grey combination - but coming a close second is the Sooty Owl in technicolour. I have only just discovered your site and am so excited about it! Beautiful stuff! :o)

Sharon said...

As soon as I saw 'from copenhagen with love' back when you first posted it I couldn't stop looking at it! That would be my pick!
You have a wonderful way with colours - and names... I love the names!

Georgica Designs said...

I can't wait for your larger prints!!

My top three favourite designs are:
1.Group Hug
2.Bird - Talk Twilight
3. and your new Atlas 39!

Brilliant designs! :: Deb Aspden

Jill said...

I think Colour-Fall would look great as a large print. And a large Swan Lake print would be adorable in a nursery. It's hard to choose, though, because they are all great!

Gemma @ Jac Whippet said...

Conversations in Summer would look super cute as a 40 x 50cm print. That little fairy wren really is cute, love all your work, you two x

O bliss said...

Oh my giddy aunt I love them all!!!!!!!!!! In particular 'Conversations in Summer' and 'Atlas 59'. You should definitely print larger and you should definitely select my name to win!!!

Salleefur/Jesselyn/Jesster said...

Oh boy, this is not easy because I can imagine so many of them in a larger format (I did share this superb giveaway in several location (despite the competition - I know you want/need as much feedback as possible...)

While I personally adore your "Belly Rubs & Fox Cubs" - two others that come in a very close second (tied) are "Kindred Spirits" and "Bird-Talk Twilight"...

But honestly, there are so many others. I should also mention that among your many talents is a gift for words and "naming" your creations - I couldn't help but notice that others have commented to the same effect: that as soon as they saw the Name/Title they fell in love... and THAT is something!

Jessterlyn(at)aol(dot)com

Carol said...

I would love Bird-Talk Twilight in any size with those wonderful colors and graceful lines, but it would be extra fabulous in one of the larger sizes. Crossing my fingers!!

MelissaK said...

Like many before me have said, all of your prints would look fantastic in the larger format and it is a very hard choice to narrow them down! The only way I could to it was to give my top 4 from the newer range of prints and my top 4 from the prints that have been available a little longer:

Newer
1. Coda
2. Atlas 59
3. Atlas 39
4. Labyrinthe de Roche

Older
1. Flora
2. The Chrysler Building
3. The Kiss
4. Balancing Act

Best of luck with making your choice!

P.S. I should say that I love the newer and older work just the same :)

Kate said...

I just looked you up from an old Frankie mag and was looking for info on larger sizes when I saw this post! In a larger size I would pick Sugared Almonds although I love many others as well.
