A New Trend?





Could this pin wheel inspired design be a new trend similar to that of the chevron/zig zag phenomenon?

Love the bright colours and the combination on the table looks great. It has brightened my morning as a miserable day here here in Melbourne.

Pretty, vibrant colors, wouldn't they look good against a brown??

I love the shell encrusted fireplace in your previous post.

I'm ok if it is! gorgeous fun colour - whats not to love?

Leanne said...

Fabulous blog. And I am already in love with this trend! What a coincidence, because I created a pinwheel skirt over on my blog: http://elleapparel.blogspot.com/2010/08/pinwheel-skirt.html.

i would say so...

i've been thinking about attempting to crochet a "ridged chevron" but the idea just terrifies me!

love the colours in the cushions, reminds me of a kaleidoscope that I had a toot.

jules @ The Diversion Project said...

Style Maniac said...

lovin' the pillows ... so bright and happy

Susan said...

Hmm, similar, but I think I prefer the pin wheel - curiously funky and 70s-ish.

Monty said...

All the colours toguether

Carissa @ the Fabulous Design File said...

Love it! Fun mix of colors, thinking that the cushions would look fab with my new chevron rug!

Tracey said...

cute. The hydrangeas get my vote though.

Kristen Ellis said...

I hope this is a trend. I love it! Hi Anna, I am a recent follower of you blog and it is great. I am an instant fan.

I love the pillows. gorgeous. I'm in pillow frenzy mode these days. I'm in the middle of a pillow project. Hope to post it sometime this week.
Thanks for sharing. Love them!

Frances said...

If it is, I love it! I have a thing for stripes, colors and psychedelic patterns. It's very Paul Smith, don't you think?

Mrs. Sutton said...

Hi Anna - I'm a little late on the uptake I know, but I've been following your blog for a couple of months now, and I find you SO inspiring! For those of us who have long been reassured by the calm cool notes of faded Farrow & Ball, your use of bold colour is adventurous and exciting. It's opened up a whole new world of possibilities in decorating for me. So please - don't ever go! p.s. It's funny, this is the first time I've seen this pin wheel stripe, but you're absolutely right - I'm sure that it will catch on like wildfire! xx

ooooh me likey Anna! x

Loving the pillows ! Do you know who makes them ?
I have a long rug that has a similar feel to this so you're probably right it must be a new design trend....
It's always a pleasure reading your blog !

Joy Just Because said...

Those pillows are AMAZING!

the NEO-traditionalist said...

Ohhh I like it! Reminds me a bit of Damien Hirst's spin art-esque work : )

Bridget said...

katiedid said...

That would be just fine by me! I love it!

Very fun... i think you just might have stumbled upon something!

Kathy said...

I just bought a very similar pillow which is the same colourway but without the bend in the pinwheel. I love it!!!It has become my favourite pillow of all time. I hope the trend catches on.

You can find it here:

Kathy said...

Oh, I just noticed that you have credited the pillow picture to a Fine Little Shop, where I bought my pillow. I can't seem to find these ones on her site though. Too bad, they are gorgeous.
