Spring alternative colours

Spring is a little fickle at the moment, one day glorious sunshine and green leaves budding with blooms in full floweriness and the next day, cold and grey and soggy fallen petals.  So ever the optimist lets shout out SPRING with a new collection of patterns and colours inspired from a few blooms I have outside.

Colour inspiration from the garden

On 01, Mar 2014 | No Comments | In Colour Crush | By patternandco

Happy 1st of march.  Spring is almost here and I am so loving all the flowers popping up and brightening my day.  The hyacinth and hydrangea are sitting on our balcony, filling the air with a beautiful scent and fab pops of colours – an alternative spring palette with electric blues and bright pinks!

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)

Blossoming

blossom 1 patternandco

Loving the lighter mornings and sunnier days, things are blossoming in many ways!

Baby bump is growing and wriggling everyday and I love it, patterns and designs are being snapped up and worked on as we speak and finally the online shop is open! I’ll be adding more and creating the official launch later but sometimes you just have to make a start, small steps lead to bigger steps!
