Mr. Bazaar has long been a fan of talented Barcelona-based artist Judy Kaufmann, having featured her on Bright.Bazaar in 2011 and 2013. Having followed Judy’s work for a number of years, I was pretty pumped when she told me about her forthcoming new project, Hello Pattern. Set to launch later this week, Judy’s new collection is a series of geometric, organic, typographic patterns that are designed to be applied to anything from paper or fabric to wood or walls. Naturally I love the bright and graphic feel to the patterns, but even more I love the flexibility offered to homemakers by this project. Judy will be selling the patterns (non-exclusive license for each pattern; $680/€500/£400) in file format (editable .pdf) for the homeowners to use how they wish. So whether you are looking to invite pattern into your kitchen with a feature wall or a splash of hue to your living room through a vase, or perhaps simply create a cheerful shower curtain, iPhone cover or cushion, the options are endless! This kind of project resonates strongly with me because I love it when designers make it easy and inspiring for others to embrace colour in a way that’s personal to them – that’s what I call Make-You-Smile Style! Which patterns do you like best?
