Coastal Coral Collection

I have been mixing up the designs I have been working on this month and also the products that I have been designing for. Coastal Coral is a collection of surface pattern and textile designs that I have been creating for the home decor market. I chose a really fresh colour palette that was inspired by the seaside and perfect for that beach house setting. Here are a few products which I have mocked up to showcase some ofthe designs from my Coastal Coral Collection.....I think they would really set the scene to give your home that coastal feeling.

Field of Flowers

I just want to share this image with you. I created some product mockups for a few home decor products using my Field of Flowers Textile Design that I entered into the Spoonflower Fabric 8 textile design competition for Moda fabrics. I hope you like the way my fabric design will look when it is made into some gorgeous soft furnishings, cushions and quilts. 

Home Decor Collection

I am finally finding some time to write this overdue blog post to show you my final Home Decor Collection. These are my favourite pieces that I designed for a home decor collection called Le Reve.

This collection consists of home decor concept designs and mockups in different mediums. I have selected the pieces which I personally think would make a fabulous collection to decorate your home. My Le Reve Collection has beautiful products made from glass, ceramics, fabric and wood substrates that are adorned with my surface pattern designs with a consistent colour palette. 

You would be able to decorate a whole room with these gorgeous pieces that are elegant and stylish. From cushions to quilts, vases to bowls and platters not to mention the ultimate tea pot and wonderful lacquered tea chest to store your favourite teas. I hope you enjoy seeing my Home Decor Designs.

This is my first fully designed and curated home decor collection that incorporates my work across many products and substrates. I am currently working on a new Home Decor Collection which is for the kitchen.

Designing for Glass

First of all let me tell you that I love glass and it is one of my biggest addictions when it comes to collecting and purchasing. This passion of mine has led me to accumulate a wonderful array of art glass by Australian Glass Artists, so I was super excited when I was going to learn about designing for glass home decor products in the course I am currently studying.

The possibilities are endless; from vases, plates, dishes and bottles, to windows, lights, candle holders and clocks, and then wonderful statement pieces and sculptural works. Then there are the techniques and applications; Hand blown, cast and molded, fused and slump, etched, sandblasted, decal and painted. Such variation in style and choices where was I to start?

The only thing I did not have to decide upon was the mood and the colour scheme as these were set by the trend board I had chose to base my designs and product concepts on. Le Reve was my theme and following on from the previous two weeks I had certain motifs and constraints in what I could utilise in order to decorate and design my dream glass home decor products. 

I had so many ideas and products that I wanted to design and apply my art to it was overwhelming, so I had to restrain and refine my final product selections. Here is the final result of my weeks work in learning and designing glass for the home decor market. 

As always I design surface pattern designs to form the basis of my work and portfolio. This week I chose to focus on two flowers for the main pattern designs. Daffodil and Lentern Rose were my choice floral subjects this week. I also produced a collection of product mock-ups for fabric with my daffodil illustrations, here is the result for some soft furnishings and a homeware collection which I have called Daffodil Danse. I really think it says springtime and would bring a touch of happiness and colour to your home.

Well that is a short roundup of my last weeks work as a designer. I am glad to be able to share with you some insights into my world as a surface pattern and product designer. For further information about any of these products or comission design work  please Contact Me
