design obsession: scalloped

You know what shape I’m loving right now? (I’ll give you one guess, and it may or may not be in the title of this post.)

The lovely scallop shape is derived from my favorite childhood shell with the same name.  Its curved edges takes me back to when I was a 7-year-old seeing the ocean for the first time, and the hunt for the perfect one.   The form is soothing and organic, but creates incredible interest when turned into a pattern.  It can be retro.  It can be modern.  Originating from nature, the scallop shape is timeless.

color story: coral + gray

Coral is natural, romantic, and playful.  It gives off those happy, feel-good vibes.  Gray is neutral, reserved, and agreeable.  When paired with together, coral shines through, providing a unique look while emitting believability and flexibility.  These 2 colors collectively radiate sophistication, whimsy, and flair.
