About MargaretClavell

Sales 194
On Etsy since 2017

I'm a pattern designer creating patterns for home accessories, which are inspired by nature.

I originally studied advertising and promotional graphics back in 1986. Many years later I took a diploma in interior design and worked in the retail side for a short while. This reinvigorated my passion for graphic design and in 2004 I went back to university obtaining a first class honours degree.

My love for patterns began after I designed a cushion for a friend to fit into her 1970s house. I enjoyed this so much that I haven't stopped designing patterns since.

I take my inspiration from nature using my own photography, another passion of mine. This is most obvious in the great variety of flowers and insects which appear in some recent designs.

Once I have an image of a flower or leaf that I feel will work as a pattern, I illustrate them using software on my computer (as you can see from some of my photos). When I am happy with my illustration(s) I set about creating a repeat pattern. Once happy with the repeat pattern I start to add colour. The colour stage can take quite a long time as I change them around until I am completely happy with the result.

I then send my designs, in a template format, to several manufacturers, who digitally print my designs onto fabric and then make them into the finished product.

My range of florals and geometrics in a muted palette are ideally suited to home décor and my more simplified and brightly coloured designs are perfect for kitchen accessories. My designs and products will give your home a new lease of life. My kitchen accessories will transform the look of your kitchen. There are so many matching accessories, they'll help create a cohesive colour scheme. With such a vast range of designs, you're bound to find something that you like.
