This week I am loving...

 These bold geometric patterns for home interiors by Sian Elin are fantastic! Her used of colour is gorgeous - creating fresh, vibrant designs for wallpaper and furnishings. 

Geometrics are fast becoming my favourite pattern for wallpaper design; I experimented with them myself  in my final collection at University. They work so well together and when combined with other elements like florals. 
 The designs above by Mini Moderns have just confirmed my love for this type of design even further! The designs still stand out with each change of colour palette, and I love them all. 

 I really like the simplicity of Laura Felicity's designs. Again, she combines geometric shapes with floral elements and birds which works so well together. Her colour palettes are subtle and clean, appealing for all homes.
