Exciting news this week! A design of mine that I sold to Huggies through my agent in North America, has hit the shop shelves. It’s exciting because I don’t often get to see what becomes of my patterns once they are sold. They are each like my little babies so it’s fitting it’s on a baby wipe pack 😉

The Alhambra wouldn’t have lived up to expectations if there weren’t a few tiles to inspire some pattern designing.

And as you can see I wasn’t disappointed in the least.

Miles and miles of them. These are the survivors of a hard edit!

I have just begun to scratch the surface of the design inspiration they prompt.

Here’s a little peek at some pattern WIP which has to remain a little bit secret 😉

Claire_Leggett_Bright Bazaar book

I have been cheering myself up on this wet, windy, grey week with a lovely colourful book I found.

Will Taylor writes the Bright Bazaar blog and has the most cheerful Instagram feed I subscribe to.

 

Claire_Leggett_Bright Bazaar book colour palettes

He’s one of those people who takes beautiful travel photos that transport you to somewhere inspiring and in this book he’s grouped them to use as jumping off points for home decor colour schemes.

I have been stalking this book at TK Max for sometime and was giddy to find it cut price last week and it does not disappoint.

I love a book full of colour inspiration for pattern and design; one that you can flick through and think ‘ooh I love that photo’ and on deeper consideration realise that it’s the colours that appeal.

I used this little snapshot on the left for a colour palette to apply to a little painted leaf pattern I was playing at.

Hope you’ve managed to find a little cheer this week amongst the winter weather x

 

Pastel pink book

Everyone once in a while I get a little bit obsessed with a colour. Seems to be this sticking-plaster pink. I was lucky enough to score this book for a fiver and it’s helped fuelled my pink infatuation and designing today. Can’t last though – tis soon the season to be red , green and white!
