I don't know about you, but I can pour over color fan decks, and color charts for what seems like hours. The day I got my Pantone Color Decks and Benjamin Moore paint decks were highlights of my design career:) It just makes me happy. This arrived in my mailbox yesterday...via Spoonflower. 1 Yard of a Cotton/Linen blend with all of the Pantone Colors on it. NOW, I can look at my Pantone fandeck, (a graphic designers necessity) and see how it translates onto the fabric...YIPPEE!!! I am thinking this fabric itself would look great as a pillow...hmmmm.
Do you all know about Spoonflower??? It is a company that prints on demand your own textile designs on a digital printer...the possibilities are endless. You can also peruse designs that other unknown designers have created. A fun source for new and unknown textile designs.

This Color Chart was designed by another graphic designer Tammikins who has the Blog Art, Alphabets and Adventure from Minnesota. You an see her textile designs here. Above is one of my favorites of her designs..I love letters and numbers too!
|I designed and ordered some about a year ago, but wasn't happy with the color matching. |
SOOOO, I decided it do it the "right" way this time.
Have you all heard that Lauren from the Pure Style Home Blog is coming out with a fabric line? Her moxi to just go for it, and make it happen, has been truly inspiring. I can't wait to see what she has come up with!
I would spend all day designing, BUT I have a client meeting, to start picking out the finishes for the kitchen renovation. Which is just another kind of design. These days make me super happy, and makes me think I am doing the right thing.
