Currently loving….Pops of yellow

On 18, May 2013 | No Comments | In Colour Crush | By patternandco

In-between house hunting, nursery planning, looking at new stuff for our “somewhere” home and designing, I find myself pinning a lot of images!  Pinterest has been a great tool for grabbing all my favourite finds and looks, it’s pretty much like a digital pin board for those that haven’t discovered it yet (beware it is additively good).  It is so easy to use and fantastic for bookmarking  ideas, gathering items into themes from cooking to wedding plans, floral prints and interior design styles!

Recently I dropped by studio alique the blog of illustrator and surface pattern designer Alik Arzoumanian and saw a sneak peek of one of her new designs for  a line of kids’ products, a fabulous aeroplanes and clouds design in yellow!!  I can’t tell you how much I love Alik designs and how much I love pops of yellow and how much I have been pinning this current obsession.

Check out the full details and links over at my pinterest board “Pops of Yellow” and if you are already signed up to Pinterest and love colour, patterns and trends (who doesn’t?) you can follow all off my boards here. 

Staying with Pinterest I shall be taking part in a Pin Hop at the end of the month, the idea is to design around a theme – the one I am currently working on is midnight garden!  Sounds fun right?  For the other themes and a whole bunch of fantastic designers taking part drop by the Find New Designers board!

An underwater bouquet for Kess InHouse

One of the best things as a designer is to see your patterns and art on fabulous products and in peoples homes.  Kess InHouse have my sea inspired underwater bouquet collection in midnight and summer swimming around on bedlinen, shower curtains, pillows, throws and more! Perfect timing!

They also teamed it swimmingly (excuse the pun 😉 with Theresa Giolzetti succulent dance pillow cases! (shown above)

Seagulls and Shells

Sometimes I step outside and forget I no longer live by the sea!  A little reminder for me and soon a move closer to the mountains and lakes will hopefully help!

Textured Blooms

On 09, May 2013 | No Comments | In My Pattern and Print | By patternandco

nirds of a feather

 

The day started one way and ended another!  I have worked on new designs in several different colourways, they are under wraps for the moment until they go into production with THE company!  YAY!

So I thought I would take some time out to design for the A-Z of flowers.  Working on the letter H at the moment and my first thought was of Hellebores!  I love their colours combinations from chocolates to cherry purples, pinks, white and lime green…..but this happened instead, a combination of textures and floral blooms and I love the outcome.

Hellebores on the other hand were definitely not working today and can wait for tomorrow, some days you have to go with the flow and apparently I am still on a vintage fling.  Happy days!

These are also number 29 for the #365patterns a day challenge!  This is a collaborative event with lots of designers, to see the collection of patterns and for more details drop by the caravan blog and check out more of my patterns on instagram (patternandco)

Grandma Chic

On 07, May 2013 | One Comment | In Etsy Love | By patternandco

I keep thinking of camping lately, relaxing by a river or the sea for a weekend, sunshine, outdoor eating, a tent or a camper is the final decision.  Either way I am going to spruce up my holiday with a bit of chintz!

Taking time out for a bird walk

On 06, May 2013 | No Comments | In My Pattern and Print | By patternandco

My last post was about too much to do, this kind of reflects that need for a break sometimes and that it is never a bad thing to stop, step away from the computer or the art board and listen to the birds for a while!

Too many things to do!

On 03, May 2013 | No Comments | In My Pattern and Print | By patternandco

Too many things to do and not enough time (I am sure I am not the only one) so here’s some ducks, remember those wooden pull along toys!  Going to hunt for a vintage set (or new but looks vintage) for the nursery!
