The Perfect Weekend pattern collection was inspired by the dreams of a vacation getaway - sleeping in between soft bedsheets and waking up to the smell of coffee - to strolling along the beach on your way to the market or hiking in a deep forest discovering natures beauty.
A perfect weekend, wherever it is spent is about renewing your energy and collecting new sweet memories.
I wanted this pattern collection to feel organic and hand made, so most of the patterns are painted with water color and then edited, recolored and arranged in the computer.
Perfect weekend comes in two color ways:
Beach House with hues in reds and blues
Mountain Cabin in hues of orange and greens
Some of the patterns can also be combined cross color ways.
Perfect Weekend includes both focal point patterns and coordinating patterns for an easy mix and match.
For Colonial Inn I wanted to create a collection of patterns that would give the impression of that soulful and exotic design you find on wallpaper and clothing from the colonial era, when products and materials were imported and influenced from all corners of the world, yet give it a contemporary feel with a Bear Bell twist.
Colonial Inn comes in two color ways;
Atlantic with a palette of blues, sand and gold that was inspired by the beach where I practically spent all days when I was a teenager growing up in the small coastal town Falkenberg on the west coast of Sweden.
Pacific in hues of coral, pink and turquoise represents the dream of the west indies, crystal clear water and exotic flora.
When i had the idea for Beautiful Century I was studying old French fabrics - the printed cottons that became immensely popular during the 17th and 18th centuries. I fell in love with the hand painted and block printed patterns and wanted to bring that beauty back into our world.
Both color ways for Beautiful Century stem from the same color palette so that the patterns can be mixed and matched:
Prined Cotton color way is dominated by pink and and yellow tones, with inserts of blue and green, while Brocade Silk is mainly carried out in blue and green, with some highlights of red and yellow.
Beautiful Century can be mixed and matched cross color ways too.
