a friend recently sent me a photo of us from years ago. i was wearing pattern on pattern on pattern. i had to laugh because this is probably something about me that won't ever change. as completely insane as it is. 

i love pattern. i love henri matisse. i love wallpaper and tile and textiles. shapes. heck, i even love geometry (MATH!). 

this year i saw a ton of pattern. from all over the world. it inspired me to hand-paint and wallpaper my backsplash (i'm waiting for my sublease to terminate before i post those photos...). which, believe it or not, wasn't such a great idea. 

once matt and i finally get to our new home in the netherlands, i want more pattern in our house! i've been thinking about ways to do this without over powering the senses, or without making it my heaven and matt's hell. 

until then, my inspiration:
