multi-faceted

Inspiration for design takes many forms, but often when complex concepts are made to look simple, then design becomes successful. Designers incorporating facets into their work have really been catching my interest of late…

clever paper-cut gems from Minie Co & a fab graphic gem printable paper to download too.

Jennifer of A Merry Mishap makes perfectly simple jewellery using elegantly faceted shapes. Her pieces are way up high on my lust list…

Illustrated snapshots of nature, human and animal life by illustrator Tabitha Bianca Brown of The Pairabirds are superbly eye-catching…

hand-carved faceted stamps by Extase via Design*Sponge make a simple statement…

this faceted cluster pendant by Famke Koene is perfect…

and stunning wooden pendants and rings with brass, copper or silver accents from Dor&kie at Africandy have sophisticated yet rustic appeal…

I’m a sucker for these cast resin faceted lights, wall clocks and plant holders from Raw Dezign

statement wallpaper creates striking patterns…and Papier Tigre, the coolest paper company with an innocent style, totally fits the faceted phenomenon..grrrr.

 

a classic combo

while my new site gets a few tweaks here and there to get it looking exactly how I’d like it, I thought I’d share a few of my recent guest posts for Plascon Design Centre

Black, white with a splash of red is one of those colour combinations that pops up time & time again. It’s classic, it’s contemporary & it’s timeless.  Making a bold statement with its simplicity, this monochromatic look with a bright twist keeps its appeal for both décor & fashion… are you a fan?
