So get this – I draw inspiration from just about everything. Nature is definitely a big one, but the cool thing about nature is that it isn’t just found outdoors. Certain patterns and processes in nature carry over to design and I gotta say, a lot of my creativity is fueled by just that. Here, let me give you an example…
Shortly after I started going to school for art and design, I noticed my talents were heavy handed towards geometric shapes. Something about strong sharp edges, tasteful patterns and ridged angles make for really great design tools.
You might notice that a lot of my fabric and tie-dye designs use geometric hexagons. Well, when it comes to fabric projects, patterns are kind of a big deal. I like to create prints that can be used for projects big and small, so hexagons usually tend to work well for all sizes of cuts. Here are some of my latest:
Hexagon and honeycomb patterns also are great additions to your home. Everything from furniture and light fixtures, to wallpaper and décor, tiles and wood, you name it… looks pretty awesome with this geometric. Honeycomb accents can add a touch of coziness to a more traditional space, or amp up the energy in a more modern one. Here are some different ways you can bring this natural geometric inspiration into your home.
So whether you furnish your bathroom floor with hexagon tiles, dress up your bed with a honeycomb headboard, or add some simple hexagon accents to a certain space, notice that the options are endless! Sort of like this pattern… it can go on and on and on, but we’ll save that for next time.
