How to design your own carpet collection

I can’t believe the first month of the year is almost over. If you read my newsletter, you know that I’ve hit the ground running and I'm creating a new carpet collection for Spring! Over the years, one of the most asked questions by creatives is “How do you design a collection?”.  Here’s a sneak peek inside my design process.

 

Step 1: I research a subject, typically based on my experiences, and create a Pinterest board of inspiration.

 

Step 2: I sort through elements that speak to me. I pay close attention to colors, patterns and textures.

 

Step 3: I begin to sketch. I currently use two design softwares: Pointcarre & Galaincha. I know, I know, I’m giving away some great tips!

  

 Step 4: The last step is to confirm the layout and add color.

 

Here is our new pattern inspired by the costumes in Trinidad’s carnival. I used the lines/patterns from the costumes as my source of inspiration.


I would love to hear what you think.
