Spring 2012: Island Blooms

Behind every paisley, bird and bloom, there’s a story. For the inside scoop on the inspiration behind the most recent additions to our colorful family, we turned to Liz of Liz on Location for the details on our fresh designs, starting with Island Blooms.

Island Blooms

“This creates a mood similar to that of a tropical and lush atmosphere, through stylized, tribal-inspired white blooms on a crystal-clear aqua lagoon. Travel to a paradise that echoes the style of Gauguin’s Tahitian paintings, complete with a palette of aquatic hues. You can almost taste the tropical flavors found on a leisurely stroll along the coastline.

The interior is equally inspiring, with a mosaic-like span of tiles in coordinating colors.  The design illustrates the color blocking trend of the season, while the rough lines illustrate the free strokes of a brush.”
