New Pattern

I made this pattern yesterday using motifs from a previous design. I kind of liked the rhythmic flow of the strings of flowers, so I decided to share it with you. It might be a good design on a pillow. I still haven't finished playing with the endless colour possibilities!

New Pattern

I'm posting a new pattern today. I've been on a roll lately! This one is titled "Acorn". As usual, I created several colour ways to see which ones are the best with the design.

Last Thursday we delivered some rugs to Jane Hall's beautiful store. I'm going to update you on that soon. I'm curious how she's going to use them. I can just imagine her lush colours and fabrics arranged in an eye-catching fashion!

Yesterday I made a trip to Roomy, a stylish little store on King Street East, in the heart of the modern furniture district. Joanna, the owner used the Koi Silver wallpaper on one of her feature walls in the store. I was happy to see that it turned out beautiful!

It was such a nice sunny day, so I took more pictures of the store. I liked the way they displayed the blue seat with the painting.

I also loved the pillow with reds and pinks on the cream couch.

For more information, please visit Roomy.ca, or if you live in Toronto feel free to drop by the store. The address is 232 King Street East.

Pattern: Country Dove

I've been working on a folk-style pattern and titled it "Country Dove". Ed said it kind of reminds him of Hungarian folk art. I found, that gray and red looked the nicest with the design, but I'll experiment with other combinations as well.

I'm off to visit Roomy. The owner, Joanna wrote me, that they installed the Koi Silver wallpaper in the store.

Nightshade patttern - Playing with colour ways

I spent a bit of time playing with different colour ways for the Nightshade pattern. I thought it looked the best with the circle darker, and the background lighter in any colour combination. Somehow the berries looked the best when they stayed white in any colour way.

New Pattern and Inspiration

Hope you had a great weekend. We had beautiful weather! I always like to take pictures in the fall, because the colours are so lively. Here are some of my favourite sunflower pictures.

I also have a new print to show you called "Nightshade". These plants are intriguing and pretty, but poisonous, so stay away from them. I still want to experiment with different colour ways, but here is what I have now.

Another Pattern

Here is another pattern I finished not too long ago. It's titled "Corn Flower".
I love to do a few colour ways for each pattern. It's interesting to see how the different colours change the overall feel and look of the design.

New Pattern

All the business side of my venture distracted me from creating new patterns, so I decided to dedicate some time for creating new designs. I always find the design process rewarding. Working on a pattern design is like fitting the pieces of a puzzle together. This one is titled "Roses".

Wallpaper News

I haven't posted for a while, so I'd like to update you on my wallpaper collection. I'm still setting up with a new printer. The quality is going to stay the same, but the number of styles in my collection will change. I will have 8 designs for now. There will be some exciting new additions along with a few popular existing styles.

In the meantime, check out Lou Lou Magazine's September issue on page 154.
