Pattern Play: In Bloom!

It’s spring! I recently moved from Brooklyn to California, so for me, this means overflowing wildflowers (sometimes growing out of the sidewalks), pungent smells of flowers and fruit trees, and of course, an excuse to wear a floral dress. I’ve also been leaning towards a more romantic design aesthetic, which includes as many floral/nature motifs as I can get away with. I thought it would be fun to round up some of the floral patterns I’ve been loving lately, in honor of this lovely season. Enjoy!

Pattern Play: Marble Texture and Pattern

I’ve always been drawn to marble. I love it because it is both a texture and an oft-designed pattern. It is a natural pattern, found in the rock, and then it is a beautiful artistic practice of creating these loose, free-form feeling patterns. I’ve rounded up my top ten marble patterns, which can be found for sale on Creative Market. Click on each image to learn more.

Pattern Play: French Textiles

I recently came across a site called Archive, which, as the name might indicate, is a real treasure trove of beautiful vintage things. For me in particular, the discovery of French vintage textile designs. All that are featured below are from 1863. 1863! These designs feel so fresh and modern to me now… the true indication of great design. If you’d like to see the full textile archive, you can visit them right here. Enjoy!

Pattern Play: Ashley Goldberg

Today I’m featuring the pattern designs of Portland-based artist, illustrator, and designer Ashley Goldberg.  As described in her bio, “Her artwork tends to be narrative and simple, but with a sophisticated or stark color palette.
Her body of work includes paintings, illustrations, pattern design, and portraiture. Goldberg’s work focuses on mark making, color exploration, and visual story telling.” Below are some of my favorites from her patterns. Be sure to check out her art and collaborations on her site as well.
