Weekend Inspiration

15 05 2011

I’m in love with this book Pattern Design & Beyond by Claudia Brown & Jessie Whipple Vickery of Pattern People and wanted to share it with you. The book is filled with such great information and amazing images. Looking through the books gets me in high spirits and ready to start new projects.

I hope these images brighten up your day. Stop by the shop and say hi to E she would love to see you.

My dearest friend Jessie is this amazing surface designer.  Her friend and business partner Claudia launched a full service surface design studio in 2007.  Their clients are Marc Jacobs, Estee Lauder and Nike.  Their prints are beautiful and fantastic.  I have been following their blog everyday.  They have great tips for colour trend, print trend, and fabric trend.  Lucky for us you can now purchase this printed posters in gold or purple.  I’m really in love with the gold print.  Got to get some for myself.
