7 patterns to take you away (a mid-week pick me up)


Have you ever been sitting in a room and realized that your mind had wandered off somewhere else? And then you realize that it’s quite possibly the room itself that has transported you to a different time and place. I’ve noticed that sometimes when this happens to me, it’s the subtle influence of a pattern. It might be a tropical motif on the wallpaper, or a pastoral pattern on the toile drapes, or a playful animal motif that casts its spell on you.

With that in mind, here are 7 patterns that have transportable powers and would be fun to add to a room (town or country) that might need a touch of magic.  Or just fun to look at for a mid-week pick-me-up!  For more on patterns take a look at Susanna Salk’s latest book The Power of Pattern.  Enjoy.  And do let me know your thoughts on these enchanting designs.
