Today we celebrate the work of Barcelona-based artist Judy Kaufmann. Her latest endeavor: Hello Pattern, a collection of geometric, organic and typographic forms that can be applied to surfaces such as paper, fabric, wood and walls. Rather than ordering vases, pillows, wallpaper and other items featuring Kaufmann’s work, you purchase a non-exclusive license for each pattern you desire. You then receive the pattern as an editable PDF, and YOU decide how to use it! The cost is $680 per pattern, and the applications are endless. Check out the stunning images that follow, many of them likely influenced by the current still life photography revival.
We begin with pastels, because pastel design is one of today’s most popular trends. Another trend: geo forms, which is why Geometric is so alluring…
For a 3-D take on geometric forms, there’s Geo, bursting with pastel goodness. As you get a feel for the potential that comes with Kaufmann’s patterns, you may begin dreaming of how you would use each one…
Would you embellish small decor items with your pattern of choice? It’s tempting to create a sculptural vignette, as shown below with Stones:
Or perhaps you’d create wallpaper and deck out your favorite room in style. Would you cover a furnishing in the pattern, create a shower curtain or enhance your laptop? Judy Kaufmann’s patterns are perfect for any space, including kids’ rooms. Couldn’t you envision Colors in a child-friendly space?
We now shine the spotlight on two-tone patterns in soothing shades, such as green and blue. Which makes them ideal for wallpaper! Below we see City. We’re loving the flowing nature of Kaufmann’s patterns. Even the designs with more defined edges radiate a sense of freedom.
In fact, each pattern is undeniably full of life. There’s an organic feel to patterns such as the appropriately named Cactus, shown below:
For another pattern that evokes the form of greenery, check out Plants, which is refreshingly summery with its crisp yet serene combination of blue and white:
Let’s Get Whimsical
We end today’s post with an assortment of whimsical patterns that creatively portray items encountered on a daily basis, from animals to machines. Below we see Birds and Cars:
There’s a hand-drawn quality to Tools, as well as a sunset-perfect tone that’s truly inviting:
Dogs, cats and other friendly creatures decorate Animals in a rainbow of colors, while Kitchen inspires a love of all things culinary:
