Little Big Bell is an award winning design, interiors and lifestyle blog based in London, England. It was started by Geraldine Tan, who for as long as she can remember has a true passion for colour, design and decorating.
In 2016, Little Big Bell was voted as one of London’s best interiors bloggers.
As well as curating and promoting new talents and trends in the world of design and decor, Geraldine loves to create original content she feels passionate about.
I live in a victorian terrace house which has 5 levels. I love the period features in myVictorian home and have preserved all the original cornicing and fireplaces. I also like mixing in a dose of contemporary to create an eclectic original feel.
My style is all about colour and happiness.
I love all my art prints, but currently my favourite is my new pink sofa bed because it’s the most comfortable place to sit and unwind. The bed will come in handy for any future Pandemics too, especially if I need to isolate away from the family.
I’m re-reading To Kill a Mocking bird with my son. I booked for us to see the play in the West End but sad it was cancelled during the Pandemic.
Being at home with my family in my pyjamas all day, styling my furniture and taking photos. Of late, I’m on a health drive, so I’m also loving walks on Hampstead Heath.
I’ve always been into colours. I’m sure it has evolved over time as I become bolder in the way I mix patterns and colours together.
Reed diffusers to scent your home. My favourites are those by Acqua Di Parma and Reeds of Mine.

Now you may be familiar with Lucinda’s (@nesttwentyeight) home as we’ve featured her beautiful interiors on our instagram ALOT! We caught up with Lucinda to chat all things lockdown, interior inspiration and what’s keeping her busy! Scroll down for the Q + A and a little insight into her gorgeous home!
Cornwall Is Always A Good Idea by Dave Buonaguidi
An Open Edition, £275
Hello! I’m Lucinda and since leaving London with my husband and my job as teacher to become a Mum, I’ve been having a ball doing up our first home. As we don’t have an unlimited supply of disposable income, I have done 99% of the painting and decorating myself and have loved the process so far. For me, keeping costs low without compromising on style is key and I have always wanted to call myself a ‘Project Manager’; it makes me feel like I’m on my own version of Grand Designs, except there’s no Kevin McCloud or a hard hat in sight- just little old me.
Our home is a 4 bedroom detached house, in rural East Sussex, where we’ve lived for the last 5 years. My husband, James and I used to live in Clapham, London where we rented a flat, but moved here to buy our first home together and now live here with our 4 year old daughter, Sienna.
My style is a mash up of Scandi, rustic and modern. I like to think my extreme style caters to all sides of my personality!
This is so hard to choose! In terms of sentimentality, I would always say something that has meaning and history. So, anything that I’ve inherited from my parents, like my vintage Singer sewing machine that I’ve repurposed as a side table in my kitchen. My Mum bought it from the Friday Ad for a fiver in the 80s and it brings back so many childhood memories every time I look at it.
I barely get time to read with a 4 year old in tow…! However, a friend bought me an audiobook of ‘Educated’ by Tara Westover for my birthday last month, which I listened to every night before bed and it was an incredibly moving and powerful true story.
I’ve always known what styles I like, but have definitely taken my time in developing and building upon them at home.
Home schooling Sienna, small DIY projects that I’ve been putting off and creating new content for my Instagram feed.

Little Fucking Cloud – Rose Gold by Donk
Edition of 100, £120
The fridge for food, the cocktail cabinet for Friday night drinks and all the art that has made the four walls we’re confined to all the prettier to look at…!
I LOVE leopard print and own a lot of it, so I’ll go with classic; Pat Butcher vibes all the way…
I love cooking and food; as we’re currently in lockdown due to the Coronavirus, we’ve been making the most of bringing the restaurant experience to us: homemade sushi, pizzas and Nando’s spicy rice have all been highlights!
Socialising with family or friends in the summertime, with a BBQ on the go and listening to some banging tunes in the garden!
Without a doubt, Van Gogh. I am fascinated by his story and how his paintings truly reflect his state of mind during his challenging life.
Print Club London and Help Refugees are inviting you to ‘Choose Love’, a fundraising collection produced to raise money in support of the incredible work of Help Refugees. In early 2018 our director Kate Higginson approached the charity with an idea to make screen prints using the iconic CHOOSE LOVE logo, asking artists to further contribute to a piece by hand finishing. From print making to collage and photography each artwork is a one off and completely unique in its design and available to buy. Artists to date who have worked on the project include Stanely Donwood, Quentin Jones & Noel Fielding and Anish Kapoor. The project launched with an exhibition at Somerset House on World Refugee Day 2018 and the collection has grown since, travelling to Pikes Ibiza, a second show at Somerset House and producing sell out prints for Help Refugees Choose Love pop up store.
The exclusive artworks are on sale via our website and we hope you will join us and Choose Love!
Shop the collection here.

Artwork by Anish Kapoor
Print Club London have raised over £50,000 for the charity Help Refugees to date.* This couldn’t have been possible without the generosity of our artists using their talent to produce a one-off piece of art for our gallery and our customers who invested in the beautiful art and the cause! Here’s where your money has gone and how much of a positive impact it has had!
*Amount raised as of Sept 2019
…diapers for Lesvos. There are 8000 refugees currently living in Moria camp – which was designed for 1500 people. Help Refugees fund many of the services and support available to people living in there and the diaper programme is a big one as there are almost a thousand babies in the camp.
Refugees4Refugees on Samos
Refugee4Refugees have done incredible work and equipped thousands of people with non-food items over the past months in their distribution centre. Meanwhile all women and children have access to non food items, which consist mainly of clothes, hygiene-items and sleeping bags. In March and April, our partner organised NFI distributions for all male residents of the camp using a ticketing system. Furthermore prams were distributed for babies in their free shop and provided to different projects around the island. New arrivals get 2 sets of everything including a hygiene package, shoes and a jacket. The organisation is still only sustainable actor on the island that provides NFIs in large quantities.

Medical care on Samos
Due to overcrowding on the island, the hospital and the doctor in the camp are overwhelmed. Therefore Help Refugees’ partner Med’equaliteam offer additional medical care. Their clinic is visited daily by 70 – 100 patients and is open 6 days a week. The clinic collaborates with and makes referrals to the hospital. Furthermore, they run medical workshops in the community centres on a weekly basis.
People reached: 600
Food on Samos
Food is still one of the greatest challenges. The people in the Vathi camp on Samos wait in line for hours to pick up a small portion of potatoes, some bread and water. The food provided has low nutritional value and does not cover the needs. Although we are able to offer additional nutritious and healthy food together with our partners at the existing and establishing services, there is still a lack of organisations and volunteers who have the capacity to provide food.
Additional food is provided at the following projects:
We are One‘s safe space for women and babies: The team offers fruit, eggs, fresh salads and drinks for all the participants. Babies under 2 years receive bananas and other snacks. Pregnant women get some extra food, such as nuts. Each Monday, on the ‘pregnant women only’ day, a warm, nutritious meal and a fresh salad is served that is explicitly aimed at the needs of pregnant women.
Mazi Youth Centre run by Still I Rise: Breakfast and lunch is given daily as well as dinner once a week for all the students (unaccompanied children).
Baobab Community Centre for Families: Light meals are cooked on site and available in the centre. In the last weeks they were preparing up to 250 – 300 meals a day. There is hot tea and water to drink.
Action for Education‘s Banana House: One hot and fresh meal is provided for each of the participants daily. Every month they serve around 2500 meals.
Thanks to your support, together with our partners we are currently looking into options to start providing supplementary food for babies from 6 months – 24 months.

Clerkenwell Design Week kindly invited us to partner with us for this year’s festival, on an exciting project called ‘Your Tote Counts’
‘Your Tote Counts’ intended to address the issue of Tote Bags replacing the unstainable plastic bags, when in fact it turns out that Tote Bags have a bigger ecological footprint than that of a plastic bag unless they’re used repeatedly. Therefore we were encouraging just that by asking people to donate their old Tote Bags and give them a little bit of TLC!
We rocked up at the festival for the three days with our portable print beds to breathe new life into these old bags, by giving them a BRAND NEW design and purpose. All the proceeds throughout the event went towards Maggie’s Centre, who are a charity which do amazing work by supporting those with cancer and their families. To find out more about the charity, please click here.

Artist based in London. I have a long-standing obsession with architecture, interiors and design objects. I am interested in non-functional structures; my drawings take existing architectural forms with the addition of fictional and playful elements. I collect visual material from an interior and design magazines combined with my personal photography; the spaces I imagine become an amalgamation of different architectural styles, drawing much inspiration from postmodernism, brutalism, and ancient architecture.

How long have you been a member: I took the deluxe course in January 2017 I’d printed at uni over 10 years before and needed a refresher; mainly to remind myself about registration. I joined straight after while everything was fresh in my mind and I’ve been dipping in and out since then!
What do you love about screen printing & Print Club: I love getting away from the computer and producing work by hand, plus it’s a very friendly inclusive atmosphere and there is always an expert print technician around to help you out of a sticky situation! It’s really inspiring to see the other work being printed, you can learn so much from how other people approach screen printing and make their layers and colour choices.
What is your printing playlist: I think it’s good to listen to something quite chilled, you can’t rush the printing or it just goes wrong! So some Staves, Sufjan Stevens & Laura Marling
Do you have any tips for a budding Screen Printer: If you aren’t feeling confident; do the course I found it great for getting my head around the process and then once you start it’s a bit addictive!!
Jana started out doing fashion illustration and selling them as gicleé prints (which Jana still does) however she does prefer screen printing because she is physically printing the one printing them. Screen printing is a really nice way to translate the prints she has on her cards and notebooks into a little piece of artwork. Jana is inspired by the Memphis Movement, Dries Van Noten, and the 1980’s.
Name: Jana Pavasovic (The Completist)
How long have you been a member: Since July 17.
What do you love about screen printing & Print Club: Printing is a really satisfying process because you can get a good result really quickly. It’s also a great way to hand-make something on a large scale. My favourite thing about Print Club is working amongst so many printmakers i’ve admired for years. Everyone is really helpful and supportive – it’s a great little community!
What is your printing playlist: Actually, I’m usually listening to political or true crime podcasts. But if it’s music, it’s usually a mix of Cut Copy, Tops, Warpaint, Blood Orange and Toro y Moi.
Do you have any tips for a budding Screen Printer: You need to be persistent and patient, and don’t be too hard on yourself! Sometimes it takes a while to get a print right, but when you do, it’s totally worth it.
I am a London based illustrator and Printmaker. I specialise in making vibrant, edgy, work with a punky look and feel. My Work is built up from a dense hybrid of drawings, collaged imagery and multi – layered colours. I am a big fan the offsets, drips and fades to create an authentic distressed aesthetic.

Originally a screen print produced for our Blisters ‘The Sound Sessions’ Show back in 2014, Davey Podmore has now re-imagined the print ‘Ch-Ch-Changes’ by adding a final layer as a last goodbye to the late David Bowie, all of the proceeds with be donated to Cancer Research UK.
“In 2014 my work was selected to take part in the Blisters Exhibition. The show’s theme was The Sound Sessions where each artist produced a piece inspired by a performer, song or gig. I chose David Bowie as my inspiration after visiting the incredible ‘David Bowie is…’ exhibition at the V&A. Bowie has so many iconic looks locked into our collective subconscious; my problem was choosing which one to go with. I decided to show them all with a montage of every look across the years, like a timeline.
On January 10th 2016, I awoke to the shocking news that David Bowie had died of cancer and that his final album release Blackstar and the video for the single Lazarus was his goodbye to the fans. I was stunned. The world seemed stunned too and there was an outpouring of sadness and love like I had never witnessed. This horrible disease had stolen someone that still had so much to give. As an icon he had touched us all, with his music being a soundtrack to all our lives.
So I contacted Print Club London wanting to do something, anything and I sounded out an idea of re-releasing the print as a variant edition with a new layer added to the montage using the final image Bowie had left us with. Print Club London loved the idea and supplied the paper, the ink, their valuable time, experience and their online shop to sell the print with all proceeds going to Cancer Research UK.
Many thanks to Kate, Fred and everyone at Print Club London; without them this would never have happened.
The print will be hand-printed, signed and a limited edition of 69; a print for every year of his life.”

Print Club London was delighted to be commissioned to design and print 50 gifts for Pullman Contracting’s clients.
Thank you Pullman who took the initiative to look out side the box of the usual gift gubbins, and created a beautiful 3d piece of art work that was printed on the glass and on the paper, to create a print with a difference. Artwork was created with Print Club’s artist ‘Ministry of Love’ to coincide with Pullmans annual clay pigeon shoot day.
If your company is interested in alternative gift ideas and want to work with one of our artists please contact us.
The end of 2014 saw an inspiring collaboration between Print Club andFarrow & Ball.
To celebrate the holiday season Farrow & Ball commissioned three of our London-based artists to create original artworks inspired by the British winter. Each print was printed using Farrow & Ball’s signature chalky finish, Estate Emulsion.
Print Club London x Farrow & Ball Artists:
Having grown up in the South West of England, the inspiration for Clare’s work comes from the buildings that surrounded her and nostalgic reminisces of places and items of interest. Within each image, design, pattern and colour plays an important part, adding depth and decoration to build an aesthetically pleasing overall effect.
Clare currently resides in London where she continues to be influenced by her everyday environment.
Since graduating with a BA Hons in Illustration, Chris has worked for a variety of clients in editorial, packaging and publishing fields. Chris’ work is inspired by vintage graphics and fonts from the 1930′s and 1940′s. Texture plays an important part of the work, giving each image a warm nostalgic tone.
Lucille is a french Illustrator and she set up her studio after graduating from Central Saint Martins with an MA in Communication Design and before, from ENSAAMA in Paris with a DSAA in Visual Communication.
Her work is mainly handcrafted from drawing to printing.
Her personal work is inspired by London and her most of her work is screen printed (of course.)
“It is a long process, everything is done by hand, everything is drawn, and often the layout is done on site. This way the print is not a reproduction, it’s the original.”
All of these prints (and more) are available from our Online Gallery.
