Inspiration | pattern purge.
Mind if I purge some patterns? I collect images of patterns for inspiration when I am designing. This blog has become like a big scrapbook of sorts for me. I can flip through the posts and find all the inspiration that normally would be kept in a folder on my desktop. It's like being the style editor of my own magazine - purely selfish! Hopefully I can inspire some others by these images too. I have huge scrap books of magazine clippings that I drag out every so often and flip through them - I've collected for ages. It's always rather funny to see what ghastly  gimmick was a hot trend even 5 years ago - stay away from trends I say - they will come back to haunt you. Now THESE patterns have lasting qualities . . .

Love the headboard with the tendrils! I do the same thing ~ keep tear sheets & web grabs of patterns for inspiration as well. Thanks for sharing these.

I wish I had the eye to use such bold patterns together and make it look so lovely as these.
