Pattern Attack!

Saturday, 7 September 2013

With the change in season I feel inspired to brighten things up with prints and patterns. On trend right now is to be fearless with patterns and prints and to try some bold combinations. Check our previous post how to mix prints to take it to the next level.

I'm a big fan of Porter Teleo's unique wall paper prints so I've dedicated quite a few of this posts image round up to their fabulous print collection.

I love this large red graphic Porter Teleo Wallpaper against the eclectic art and blue accessories. This outfit combination is from the latest  Karen Walker walker range, mixing prints well. Outfit image courtesy of

We can't have a  pattern attack round up without polka dots. I love the raw texture that the drip effect from the hand painted Porter Teleo wallpaper gives. This is an amazing dress from that I'd love to have to welcome in spring.
A more bold example from Porter Teleo wallpaper has a massive impact. This funky outfit from is also a great example of mixing prints - pattern and polka dots.

Marimekko is an internationally renowned Finnish brand that is famous for their bold graphic designs for prints, fashion and ceramics. Their range truly spans the premise of this blog from home decor and accessories to fashion, so putting the following roundup together was a very natural fit for homebecomesher...

  1. Marimekko Poppy print is one of my all time favourites! I like both the colorful sneakers and also the monochrome version of this pattern!

    1. Hi Anu! Marimekko Poppy print is such a striking print! I have a few prints including the Vourenkasvit 1970s print which is pretty special too. Such wonderful fabrics, agreed, thanks for your comment!
