I’m by no means an expert, but I’ve always been a fan of folk art. There’s a naivety and a simplicity and a beauty to it, and I think those same traits come across in today’s wallpaper from Harriet Seed. Harriet is a Brighton based illustrator who’s work reminds of old, Dutch cloth patterns. They’re brightly colored and filled with adorable critters and random fruits and the such.
I loved her patterns so much that I asked her to create one for today’s wallpaper, and I think it turned out wonderfully. I love how warm and rich the colors are, the golds and deep blues paired with the dar red is fantastic. I also love all the little critters, especially that she managed to get a little, black foxy in there. Definitely a good way to start the year.
