Bohemian homedecor textile ranges

It’s important to keep up with the trends, don’t you think? They are a source of inspiration & ideas, and give a general direction into which something can develop.

One of my favourite looks (and one which I have noticed trending in interiors at the moment), is the bohemian look. I’m absolutely loving this theme and deep inside, I’ve discovered that I’m probably a bit of a hippie at heart! It’s funny when you suddenly see a ‘trend’ that you like, you then see it absolutely everywhere!

What I love about the bohemian trend in homedecor is how free spirited, individual and cultured it is. There are no rules and you can make your home as bespoke as you like; as long as the colours go well together. In particular, I love how people combine wood, IKAT textiles, old & new furniture, plants, craft and earthy tones within their living spaces. Here is a taster of what I found on Pinterest.

 

 

Within my portfolio of work for Printsource, I created a couple of bohemian homedecor textile ranges. Most of my recent work (which you will see if you follow me on social media), is all about the ‘summer theme’, so creating patterns for interiors was such a lovely change, because it’s mainly all about textures. The patterns I designed were inspired by batik and tie dye effects. I recreated these effects using watercolour and gouache paints, because I was working on paper, rather than fabric. I may try these techniques on fabric one day 🙂

Here are a few initial, painted patterned samples. I began working in blue, then changed some of the colours at a later stage in PhotoShop.

Here are my two bohemian inspired homedecor collections. The first range has a bolder colour palette using blue and red tones.

 

 

The second has in my opinion much prettier, softer yet bold colours. I love this colour palette, however the first range is proving to be more popular on social media!

 

It has definitely been some time since I designed for home-textiles and I have thoroughly enjoyed creating them.

Fun holiday inspired designs

It’s funny how the weather can influence what type of work you produce. As you well know (if you follow my blog), summer is my all time favourite season and I want to share with you a few, fun holiday inspired designs.

In winter, most people stay indoors to keep snug and warm. I’d say I’m at my happiest when the sun is shining, the days are longer and everybody comes out of hibernation.  Animals are usually hibernating in winter, too, so when the summer season starts, the world just feels more alive!

I create many different types of designs, to pass through to my agent. These include florals, children’s, Halloween, birthdays, Easter, Christmas designs and so on. Even though I produce Christmas designs all year round, it’s not easy, trying to feel the festive spirit in the middle of July! I’m sure lots of designers have this same issue! I’d much prefer to be thinking about the sun, sand, beaches and swimming pools, and these are all included in my recent work. I hope you like them.
