Inspiration is everywhere. Picking up Patagonia's newest catalog last night, we we're impressed with how it is changing to become an even more powerful communicator of Patagonia's active green lifestyle products, but also particularly by this picture, which instantly gave us ideas for wallpaper patterns based on the rich vintage colors and the alternating holes and brick striping pattern...
It gave us an idea as well for a new column, which would feature simple photographs of great patterns, whether they are in wallpaper, tile or fabric. By recording and collecting all the inspiration we find around us, it would provide a rich library for those times when you have the opportunity to buy, install or use pattern in any way and need great ideas. Keep a look out for it in the next few weeks as we get it together.
Here's the caption from the great pic above:
