Aff409 A Present For Ottoline

I created this pattern specifically for homeware and fashion products and, after my usual deliberation, I gave it the title ‘A Present For Ottoline’ which I thought fitted the look of the design well.

The intention behind this pattern was to create something that I hoped would be distinctive and which would catch the eye whilst preserving my use of mid-century colours and, to an extent, the same sort of motifs. In fact, as often happens, the design for the motifs came from other work that I had done previously.

The end result is a design which has limited use as you will see from the representative items shown above but which is fun to look at (I hope) and which is also a colourful addition to my range.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.

Neat And Tidy Trimley

Neat and tidy Trimley was, from the very outset, intended to be used as a home product design with particular emphasis on furnishing.

It has strong roots in mid-century motifs and designs and, as ever, the colouring uses realistic midcentury-based hues. The effect is to create a clean well-structured cushion that helps to emphasise dimensions and size and which will go well with most types of furnishings.

The design is also available as a tote bag and in this capacity it works just as well. The cushion and the bag are available from Redbubble and both images are shown. My own image shows the cushions in a mid-century inspired room which uses on the walls the red version of the Claydon wallpaper which I am developing with Spoonflower.

As ever, you can also see larger versions of this and our other work on our Flickr page which is here while these two items can be found on our Redbubble page which is here.
