Do you every find yourself buying the same article of clothing over and over, or choosing the same paint color for every room, or being attracted to the same textiles for your home?
I totally do.
My fascination is with small scale plaids, checkerboards, and stripes they form or use!
|Duvet cover, from Crate and Barrel years ago|
|Dining room chair upholstery, also from years ago, that I never tire of.|
|Current eyeglass case. I love the colors and values playing off one another!|
|A single stripe with a single shot cotton, analogous hues throughout. |
Equal proportions of each. The result is pretty but lacks visual interest.
|A new stripe created from two stripes and one shot cotton. Here your eye is challenged a bit seeing and sorting the values and the range of hues.|
|Again, two stripes and one shot cotton.|
|Again, two stripes in one set of horizontals interrupted by a single stripe, but this one is in a large range of hues and values.|
