And you know what that means– florals. Lots and lots of florals. They may be a tad overdone at times, but I never really seem to get sick of them. They are a staple in the print and pattern world. Design for Spring 2016 still hasn’t quite started at Gap, but we’re all done with Holiday, so it’s that weird inbetween seasons time where all the designers scrounge Pinterest for inspiration to get their brains in gear for the upcoming months. I’ve been pinning away for the past two weeks, I think my Pinterest page has probably had enough of me already, so I needed to take a break and play around for a while.
It feels good to just play around with patterns without the pressure of designing for a customer. This one is pretty girly. I’m not a pink person, as in, I don’t particularly love the color pink, but I’m ok with it because in this print it’s paired with that mossy green color that I love so much.
I love the look of vintage prints, so I often find myself trying to achieve a worn look or using a softer, older looking palette. I always prefer neutrals over super bright primary colors. To me, neutrals are much more mysterious, they’re not putting everything out there like primaries or neons. Yes, I’m talking about colors having personalities.
I’m very excited to say that I’m purchasing a new camera this week, which means much nicer pictures to upload! I’ve downloaded Lightroom and I’m all ready to go. If all goes well, you’ll be seeing a lot more photos here in the future.
