Pinterest: Pattern Inspiration

I love Pinterest. It has been a great place for me to keep track of my changing tastes, as well as an endless source of inspiration.

Recently, patterns and texture has provided the main source of pleasure. I just love patterns! Especially those with ikat and geometric inspired print. In my opinion, the brighter the colour the better.

So, here are my top 7 pinterest boards that provide a great source of pattern inspiration:

Kimokame: Textiles, Surface and Pattern

This board has over 26k pins, and 510 pinners. It’s forever being updated and filled with patterns, texture inspiration and fashion pieces. It’s a great place to start, and, if you’re new to group pin boards, this  board is for you. They welcome new pinners often.

Laura Bolter: Patterns 

This board is regularly updated, with beautiful patterns and art inspiration to encourage your creativity.

Hannah Teej: Design: Patterns and Texture

Over the past year, I have worked hard at developing a board of patterns that I love! When I first started drawing and painting again, I was often stuck with where to start or what to do. Emulating patterns in creative ventures is one of the best ways to practice. They don’t take up as much time as detailed drawings and can be really useful for practising new styles and exploring your own tastes. It’s also one of the many boards I look over when I just need some eye candy. Bonus, because it’s very low in sugar!

Myro Doodles: Inspiration

I love Myro Doodles Pinterest. It’s the ultimate happy place. Her boards are overflowing with design, pick me ups and general feel good moments. Most of her pattern choices are inspired by Eastern European, Middle Eastern and Indian-esque traditional design.

Ana Sender:Pattern

Ana is a fan of intricate pattern. I love looking over her board and getting lost in the complexity and detail. Definitely not something that I can use as inspiration (yet!) but her board is a reminder of what I aspire to be able to do.

Erin Dollar: Patterns

This board is completely different to Ana’s. It comprises of print, pattern and texture with tonal colours. The simplicity of the board is amazing. As an added bonus, Erin has includes examples of ‘pattern in action’, in the home, on clothes and in the workplace.

Kiriki Press:Pattern Inspiration

Patterns are simplistic, colourful, cheery and cute. It’s the sort of board you want to look at for a pick me up. Amazing.

I also love these boards for pattern and creative inspiration. These ones are not necessarily limited to pattern but they’re still really fun:

  • Celi Valiño has some really awesome graphics and patterns collected on this board. I am also in love with the super awesome ceramic one as well.
  • Camila Barreto has a collection of doodles and icons and, although not really about pattern, it is a great source of clean cut images and simple design. Her journalling board is filled with great writing inspiration and great examples of how to apply pattern into creative and personal development.
  • Charuca‘s boards are filled with colour, design and just general brilliance. I love the colours and the prettiness. I spent a long time purusing through these.
