  • Pattern Week Day 1/ Stripes

    October 15, 2012 | 2 Comments »

    Clearly I'm running a little bit behind here with Pattern Week- these things are time consuming so bear with me!
    Alright, now that I've made my lame excuses, let's move onto more important things: Stripes. Who doesn't like a stripe? They're versatile and graphic. They go with everything. Stripes take you to all sorts of places: a ticking stripe makes me think of the French countryside whereas a bold black and white stripe has a mod feel. Where do these photos take you?

    This photo by Matthias Heiderich makes me think of a giant lolipop

    The striped rug in this photo is both global and modern. From the home of designer Pamela Shamshiri
