Day 17 – 8th June – Quarantine Room Design Notes – Bedside Headboard Light

I love the hint of Art Deco and understated elegance in this simple design. It matches beautifully with the headboard and drapes, while the acrylic cover features a subtle onyx-inspired design which matches the onyx top of the bedside table.

Happy Chinese New Year – Year of the Ox

My little design for Chinese New Year that’s just around the corner. Wishing all Chinese all around the world a wonderful New Year full of love, peace, good health and prosperity.

By the way, that’s not a self-portrait 😄, though yes the Year of the Ox 🐂 is my year when it comes to the Chinese zodiac.

Art Deco Calla Lily Pattern

I drew a pattern, started out inspired by Art Deco and the Calla Lily flower, but when I finished it also feels a tad Mid-century to me.

Clockwise from Top Left: Marigold, Scarlet, Indigo, Ocean

I think maybe that’s due to the sparse lines, the white background and the colour choices. Even though this ‘fish scale’ type of pattern is usually considered Art Deco, the art movement is usually associated with richness and luxury. So maybe a dark jewel tone instead of white for the background, gold or silver lines for contrast, and gradients for depth would make it more Art Deco. But I like how this turned out. I’m looking forward to trying out more such patterns.
