i always rely on helen dardik when i’m in need of some instant fun—she never disappoints. this multi-talented creative does design, illustration, patterns, and she is a mother of three…how is this possible? i went through every piece of work on her website in an attempt to pick a few favorites and ended up with well over twenty. i arduously paired it down to five perfect patterns: bottles, peacocks, flowers, birds, and sea creatures! if you make it through all those and still want more (i did), check out helen’s equally entertaining blog.
i’m a big fan of warm colors. i will substitute black to brown when i can. love the retro pallet. this color combo is straight out of vintage kids
