A little bit of vintage

Vintage stores, boutiques and markets are usually full of vibrant colours and bold patterns which gives you so many ideas for designs. I get excited looking around them as they are so inspiring, telling the story of past fashions and I imagine how I can bring them back into the present. Look out for fabric swatches and wallpaper pieces as they are good to collect and put on your studio wall as a reference (or are just lovely to have in your home). Once you have gathered your samples and research, have a go at putting a contemporary edge on some of the patterns you have found; combine them together, change the colour palettes, cut them up and reorder them, just experiment and have fun with them!
