These colors have little relation, but totally remind me of the book:
Tricia Guild Pattern

I've owned this book for a couple years now and STILL love every page of it. Besides the fact that the cover of the book is flocked, the inside pages are packed full of hand-rendered, painted, and intricately done patternwork. I wonder if some of Tricia Guild's inspiration comes from global influences like these?

I suppose if I actually read the excerpts from the book I might see where her ideas come from. Too bad I'm so distracted by all the pretty artwork! :)


  1. Beautiful!! I am always distracted by the photos instead of the words, too. I am confident that you get all the inspiration you need from life in general! Happy creating! Cheers!

  2. This is lovely. India, hands down, is my biggest inspiration ever.

    Thank you for posting such beautiful images :)
