Bold red patterns

are everywhere in Turkey. In carpets hung outside shop windows, in blankets draped over the seats of taxis, in the floor cushion (dog bed) I just bought.  Bold red patterns are also, coincidently, all over my inspiration folder…





And though there’s more yellow than anything else in the clipping above, I love the red and pink it features. I love red and pink together. Maybe that’s because my birthday is right after Valentine’s Day.

I also love discovering patterns, much like when I woke up one day and realized my iTunes was full of Swedish pop.

    I am so inspired by all those fabrics, textures and colours – I wish i could be more brave and experimental with it. I can’t wait to see what you’ve got up your sleeve from Turkey!

    I’ve seen so many interesting patterns lately, too. It makes me crave Batik scarves and Indian-inspired tops.
