I have always been inspired by colors so it was only natural to pick a palette as a start of a collection. I am designing repeat patterns and home textile line with the black, yellow and pink palette. It is amazing I could find a butterfly with exactly those colors in the wings. Nature is the best in color matching. I am generally inspired by birds, butterflies and flowers when it comes to color combos.
Once I pick the palette I am going to work with I go for the shapes. I know a lot of designers go the other way around but color gives me mood and mood points me to shapes. I won’t be able to design anything if I do not have a feel for it.
