Q: How do the seasons inspire this pattern?
A: When we started concepts for this pattern, the beautiful, bold, and bright greens caught our eyes as they ushered in the spring season. We thought that this beautiful green color was the perfect translation for a spring + summer pattern. To complete our color palette, we combined that green of spring with the deep navy of a summer night sky and the rich turquoise of a crystal blue sea. Nothing says summer more than those spent looking up at the stars and the refreshing dip you take to cool off on those hot summer days. We then took some of our favorite spring flowers, gave them a cinda b spin and arranged them into a unique geometric pattern. The combination of the color palette and a striking, geometric floral pattern radiates preppy in its colors and bohemian in its design. Verde Bonita is just that — a beautiful green.Q: How do you design a pattern that "goes with everything"? A: I was inspired by a classic chevron pattern that I wanted to shake up and make it our own. I played with many color variations, but I never could escape the bright color palette. Here's the kicker: I wanted to design a pattern that would go with everything — black, brown, jeans, etc. With all the bright colors of this classic pattern, we wanted to pair it with a very neutral solid, and ivory seemed like the perfect choice. The result is a pattern, Ravinia Ivory, that works with just about any outfit, which answers this question to a "T"! Q: How did the Big Apple inspire this design? A: I had the Big Apple in mind for this pattern right from the get go. I wanted to create something sleek and sophisticated so that it would look right at home in Manhattan. This geometrically modified flame stitch pattern (which just so happens to look like the famous NY landmark itself) did just that. The color combination of black, gray, tan, and brown paired with a smoky grey solid, makes Empire Slate my favorite pattern to take with me while traveling for business (especially when I'm visiting the Big Apple)!
