PATTERN PLAY: A PUNCH OF COLOR November 7, 2013 In the last 16 months, my 3 closest friends who didn’t have babies have either had or are having them, which means that I, inadvertently, have babies on the brain. I never really know what I’m going to do when I start pulling fabric for these Pattern Play posts. I generally look through my fabric library for the first thing that catches my eye and then start playing around with it until I come up with a scheme that I love. In this case, the Osbourne & Little print (far right) was my starting point, and then I played with way to make it masculine or feminine. I’m anxiously awaiting word on whether “my” newest baby is going to be a Morehouse Man or Spelman Woman, but in the meantime, I kinda think this scheme would work for either gender–call me crazy, if you like. With dark brown walls and a swap of the Brunschwig & Fils print (far left) for drapery instead of the Osbourne & Little option, I’m really loving this look for for a boy just as well. Would you step out on a limb and use this scheme for a boy’s room or is this screaming girl to you??
