Lately I’ve been obsessed with patterns. They evoke so much personality and emotion in a way that feels very similar to the subtleties of typography. I’ve been assembling some of my favorite examples as I try to hone in on the style and feeling I want to evoke with tinsel + trim. I like qualities like geometry and order paired with playful and approachable. Actually, now that I think about it, that’s sort of how I like most things. I named my last car Sophie—she was a VW station wagon—because I thought the name was both sophisticated and approachable.
This weekend’s roundup is of patterns, all by women coincidentally, that have qualities of geometry, order or balance, and play. I like seeing them arranged together—they sort of compliment one another, don’t you think?
