Spring

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!

More loveliness can be seen over on my Pinterest Board – Pastel Pretties including this fab sweater by Louche!  Isn’t it gorgeous!

I even tried out my own pastel colour palette for 365patterns*.  A bit of a different direction, rather than flowers and florals – geometric prettiness!

Spring Flirt (#365patterns) Pattern 7

On 25, Feb 2013 | No Comments | In My Pattern and Print | By patternandco

sprint flirt 1 patternandco

Spring flirt is such a perfect title for today, I had hoped over the weekend that the snow and cold was making way for a little bit of spring.  I’d spied a few clumps of snowdrops huddled together and the buds on the trees looked liked they wanted just a little bit of sunshine and then……came Monday morning and a fresh blanket of snow!  Spring is being a tease!

SO I stayed in the studio and dreamed up my own spring start with snowdrops and winter aconites…..hopefully crocus will join them soon!

In the meantime these little beauties are available in the shop.
