Paper Love Inspiration

I love paper.  I am a paper Junkie.

Now that we have the confessions out of the way I can say paper for me is an inspiration.

I draw on it, paint on it, cut out shapes, print on it, fold it and make secret plans…..

Paper is such a big part of my daily life, from list making (always with doodles down the side) to making presents look as beautiful on the outside as the inside, designing on it everyday and creating decorations that string together all my ideas.

It’s my favourite way of making a mood board and pulling together colours and textures for my latest collections.

I have the greatest time designing patterns for paper products – florals, stripes, geometrics, watercolours, the list is endless and there must be at least one or two pieces of patterned paper for everyone.  What is your favourite paper?

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!

Old photos from a funfair trip sparked a whole new colour palette. Navy, soft orange and a muted aqua!  Adore the stripe too!
