Pattern Pieces :: The Series

We’re currently in the process of redecorating and updating Casa de Sprik.  When we moved in 5.5 years ago, we were newlyweds, and we did a pretty good job of incorporating the décor and furnishings we both brought to the marriage.  Fast forward to now, and that old décor doesn’t necessarily feel like “us” anymore… or it’s become a little dated. 

I’ve found myself with a large expanse of wall behind my living room sofa.  The ceilings are pretty high, so I knew I wanted to fill it both horizontally and vertically.  Finding a large art piece would easily run us in the hundreds of dollars… I started brainstorming. 

My ultimate goal was to come up with something clean, fresh, and a little modern for this wall.  I’ve always loved the idea of Crate & Barrel’s Classical Symmetry Prints – unfortunately, they come at a hefty price tag and colorway that won’t work well for my living room plans.  Then, earlier this month, I spotted the “Five Dolla Art” post on Young House Love… and I figured out an idea.  I could take YHL’s idea of using the colors that work for your room, framed in IKEA Ribba frames, hung in a grid format, and add patterns to the solid colors.  

And, guess what…  I’ve turned them into a series of printables just for you!  :)

IMAGE - Pattern Pieces . The Series

So far, I’ve created 13 different patterns in 25 colorways (using the same colors I’ve used in the past on other printables).  Who knows… I might get crazy and  create even more!  Right now, my plan is to release a few patterns a week.

IMAGE - Pattern Pieces - COLORWAY GUIDE

Don’t get overwhelmed… just pick and choose what you like.  If you decide to do a grid in your home, I’d suggest keeping it simple with either colors or patterns or both.  But, don’t think that these will only work hung in multiples – what about framing a pattern in a favorite color to fill in part of your collage wall?  Or using the pattern as a background behind a favorite photo or a monogram? 

Currently, each print is sized at 12x12(Costco will create 12x12 prints for only $2.99 each!)  If you don’t want the pattern as a square, upload it to Picnik, and crop it to whatever size works best for you.  You could even resize the prints, to create smaller squares for framing or other projects.

I’m excited to complete my living room art installation, but I’m even more excited to see what all of you do with the patterns.  Please be sure to send them to me!

Stay tuned… the first installment of patterns is coming up!

You always have the best printables! Yay for being able to print a chevron pattern instead of trying to paint it, lol.

Although I already follow you, I was at AGAAGG and she was showcasing some of her favorites- and asked us to go and comment on our favs- and your my favorite : ) Love-love-love all of your printables, and these in particular! I've been waiting for them all to be done so I can spend hours choosing my new design.

Barbara said...

What a goldmine of a resource! Thank you so much for providing it!

Audrey said...

I've been spring cleaning lately and have just barely caught up on everyone's blogs and OMGosh.. I think I'm in love. LOVE LOVE LOVE this display! :D I'm so gonna do it. And in my catching up I found this:
http://thatshappy.blogspot.com/2011/03/paris-in-yellow.html

I think I'm going to go around Orem searching for a fun color or maybe search in my own pictures of Darbi for a consistent color (probably yellow.. it's just too cute) and incorporate your pattern pieces in teals & grays in fun random frames. I'll post a pic if I ever get it done. :)

THANK YOU!!! I love these and will be printing some for my house. I will let you know when I do, so you can see:) How hard would it be to get a mustard colored one? I have a lot of that in my house. If not, I can figure something else out. Great idea!!

Rachel said...

I LOVE you for doing this! THANK YOU!

I LOVE this idea and I have the biggest walls and have been trying to think of a way to decorate them! I am going to try a 9 pattern like yours but I am going to do it on shelfing board (bought at Lowes and cut in 12x12 pieces and modge podge it on there) However, I can't find all the patterns. I am IN LOVE with teh chevron pattern and the Argyle pattern but I am having trouble finding them on your site. Also, I couldn't tell what pattern the middle one was and I can't find that one either. Please help! Thank you so much! Jennbenn2@gmail.com (not sure if I should post this on here or not?)

Jennifer S said...

Do you know were I can order a 12x12 print if I am not a member at Cosco? We don't even have one in my state.
