Pattern Play: Shauna Lynn

I love love love LOVE pattern design, and it’s something I only occasionally share here. Trying to change that… starting today. I came across the work of Shauna Lynn when I was researching hand-lettering (which you should check out here), and I noticed that she has some beautiful pattern work in her portfolio. Ignore the theme… 🙂 (Christmas in August?).

Besides the obvious practical function, rugs can serve as a great room neutralizer, or by contrast, add a pop of color and personality to any space. They can simply and immediately infuse a room with a distinct personality, and can be a great color foundation to build a room around.

I love rugs for their latter function, so I thought I’d share my love of pattern and color with you by highlighting some favorites and classic patterns most commonly found in rug design. This is your guide to choosing the pattern that’s right for you.

Happy Saturday!

As a designer, I’m hugely inspired by patterns- patterns of all sorts. I’ve been meaning to introduce this column to the blog for a long time now, and I’m so pleased to debut it by showcasing the work of someone who not only inspires me, but who also is my friend and former colleague.

Without further ado, I present to you the amazing patterns created by NYC-based textile designer Zak Profera, of Zak + Fox.
