Harley’s Flush On Spoonflower


It’s raining and dark and chilly. What a great day!

I fell in love with this palette. The colors are from a brand of interior house paint. A southwest collection. That light greyish pink is almost the same color I used on my vanity table.

I intended to enter the second version, with the softer background. Then I viewed the patterns on the Spoonflower duvet. I like how the white adds a subtle pop of light. Everything is subtle about this simple harlequin design.

Tween Spirit Bedding was our assignment. The design brief called for mid-tone color palettes. Calming. Some suggestions were curves & arches, & minimalist illustrations. I softened these diamonds with curved corners.

I thought the linen texture (above) was going to be my entry. But it is too subtle in the bedding sample that will be seen in voting. I am also working on a linear idea. With the lines a slightly darker shade of each color. I’m curious to know what you think.

I am always thankful for your support. Voting is now open, until the 22nd. From what I have seen in one of the Spoonflower Facebook groups, there are lots of cute designs. But also many that are more universally usable in home décor applications.

    Sheila! The softness and subtlety of these mid-tone colors from a southwestern collection appeal to me greatly, and I’m impressed with your bringing a pop of white and slightly darker lines to add just enough punch to catch attention without losing any of the calm in the pattern.

      You noticed! Thank you Dotty. 🙂 Haha. First that outline was too thin, and then too thick. I finally got it just right. Hahaha. 🙂
      Happy camping my friend! I’m looking forward to today’s delivery! ;o)
