Mood Board | Blue + White

October 10th, 2011

There’s something about blue pattern on a white background that is so timeless, no matter what the season is. Lately, I’ve been seeing fashion & interior designers take inspiration from blue & white porcelain¬† patterns. Rodarte featured some stand out looks for their Spring 2011 collection that were inspired by Ming vases. They also enlisted the help of Nicholas Kirkwood to create a stunning sculptured platform shoe featuring their prints. Interior designers are also taking traditional Swedish blue & white patterns and blowing them up to larger than life proportions to feature onto upholstered chairs, pillows, and curtains.

Blue & white porcelain has been a time-honored color palette from China that created a foothold in European ceramic history. Even now in the 21st century, that same blue and white palette has continued to inspire designers in a multitude of other disciplines.

Color Series | 74 | Fall Confetti

October 5th, 2011

I love the print of this dress from this series of gorgeous photos from Daemian Smith + Christine Suarez. It’s made of tiny falling leaves – perfect for the beginning of autumn – and it feels like confetti. So happy and celebratory, yet in colors that’s just in sync with the season.
