.room.

these are all photos that i've taken from countryliving.com as inspiration for my final pattern design assignment. we have to create five patterns made specifically to go into a room of our design. i'm really excited about it. country living's website has a ton of awesome house tours, you should check it out!


i have a special affinity for pie safes. my parents have one in our house and i love it. also, ceramic crocks. i covet them. actually, i love pretty much everything about this photo. the chair, the tub, the ticking on the bed, the windows... love.

the peaches and the wood beam are my main inspirers here. also, i like that tiling. i love old wood beams.

whisks are really great tools. they look awesome and they do such a good job. i love this collection of antique/vintage whisks. maybe i'll do a pattern or two of kitchen implements...

i like the chandelier, but what i really like about this image is the giant bowl on the table.

ceramic and wood together. probably my two favorite materials, besides fabric/textiles.

i take the garlands and the sink/cabinet as inspiration here. also, i like the giant watermelon in the sink. i love chippy paint!



the room i chose is the kitchen/dining room. i'm lumping them together because i want to do stuff from both rooms. that's a pretty good reason, right? anyway, my theme or inspiration or whatever you want to call it is... i guess maybe slow living. i'm emphasizing a connection to food in its plant state. also, i think the table linen patterns will be images of fruits and veggies themselves. all of the materials in the room are natural. i'm designing patterns for food storage containers that will be ceramic. all of the table linens will be just that - linen. oh, how i miss linen.

Your choices are excellent! I too love the chippy paint, big wood beam, giant bowl, ceramic and wood... Can't wait to see what you come up with out of this. Oh, and the whisks are beyond cool...

Thank you Lisa! I can definitely see you loving these, I thought of you :) I LOVE the whisks!!! I'm going to try to make a pattern just from those whisks.

Melynda - I'm glad you liked! Hopefully I can turn this inspiration into real stuff tonight....

I know, me too! I want all of these rooms in the same house. I can't choose just one...
