Winter Fabric Collection

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Well I’m pretty excited everyone, I’ve released seven fabric patterns as part of a winter collection now available in my shop. For me, designing fabrics is the ultimate DIY project, from the inspiration that strikes to the execution and digital design that occurs in Photoshop or Illustrator, followed up by colorization, printing, and styling.

It’s the middle of winter and where I live in Northern California, the colors are pale and earthy as we await the blooms that will arrive in April. Nature’s neutral palette inspired a winter collection of seven patterns in gray and driftwood colorways, also included are paler hues from blush pink to mint green and icy blue. 

There’s a giant oak tree that lives up the road from my house that has lived there for decades and its sculptural branches speak to me even in the gloomiest months.

I had to include the grand tree in the Lookbook I put together as I styled the various fabrics around the house and in my small studio – you’ll find patterns I’ve featured in the past . . .
