Sequins made a comeback a few years ago, but recently I have seen a resurgence in sequins used to create patterns. It can be absolutely gorgeous, note the skirt in the third photo down (does anyone know who designed that?), or a little nightmarish depending on the execution…but I love it!
I love these mixed media pieces by artist/designer Lisa Solomon. She uses watercolor, colored pencil, thread, and other mediums in these beautiful scenes of domestic life. More of her work can be found at her website.

I saw this vintage fabric on design archives‘ etsy site and it reminded me of these prints from Aquilano.Rimondi’s Spring ’11 Collection. They have different layouts, but use similar elements and have that same funky 1970’s feel. This is an up-and-coming trend that I hope to see carry through to Spring ’12. More from Aquilano.Rimondi’s collection tomorrow!
These beautiful pieces are designed by Eve at tinctory. She uses natural dyes, often from leaves, flowers, etc..found in her backyard. The colors and textures are exquisite!
