Paint & Patterns

I haven’t really had the opportunity to get my hands messy for a while so when the chance to get pattern-y with paints popped up I was pretty excited. Direct Blinds sent me a little creative kit to take part in #Makemeadesigner so I chose watercolour as my weapon of art – I just love the tones and textures that can be created. I started practising my technique with orange…


… but felt more at home with a moody blue/teal:

As you all know, I’m a triangle enthusiast, but I found myself leaning towards lines, grids and circles for a change. What do you think to these 4?:

The patterns were created to be printed onto a roller blind with different rooms in mind:

Throwing some shapes for the bathroom (Image credit)


A subtle grid for the bedroom (Image credit)


and polka dots for the lounge. (Image credit)

I think they would all work well as the feature piece in an all white room – what do you think? What would you choose for your flat/house? This is something a bit different for me but it’s good to mix it up a bit from time to time – creativity has no limits!
