Beth Schneider Emerging Designer Interview

As I've mentioned in the past, I've been taking the e-courses, The Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design, from Make It In Design. The last one, Ultimate Portfolio Builder, just ended about two weeks ago. They have been very generous and kind regarding my designs and have tagged me as an Emerging Designer! They asked me to answer a few questions about the class in addition to some personal things like how I got started, etc. So if you're interested to learn a little bit more about me, click here to read the full post!

EVD Goes International with Terry's Fabrics

I recently had a company contact me regarding providing some designer insights in to the latest home decor trends. At first I wasn't sure since I hadn't heard of the company before but after doing some quick research I realized why. Terry's Fabrics is based in the UK! So, it's official....I'm international!

This was an exciting project for me especially since I have a background in architecture and interior design! That mixed with my home decor surface patterns, it was a no brainer. I'm truly honored to be in such great company as some other surface pattern designers that I have admired for a while, Miriam BosZoe Ingram and Josephine Kimberling along with a few of my new surface pattern friends, Natalie Williamson and Egle Petrauskaite. I had to provide some of my patterns and a bio about myself along with my top 5 home decor picks for the season. Here are a few highlights from the post and you can view the full article here.

New Fabric Available at Minted

Hello! I'm really excited to share with you today three new fabric patterns that are now available at Minted. Each one comes in 7-8 different colors, I've shared a few of my favorites with you below. The first one was inspired by a vintage fabric found on an old chair at a friend's house and is called Bell Floral. As always, the motifs are hand drawn and then come to life with pops of color! (FYI, you can click on each image below to see it larger.)

The next one is called Piped. This one was inspired by the pipes of an old organ at a church. The lines are hand drawn and married with modern colors to go with your home decor! Imagine what you can make with this fabric, so many options!

And last but not least, I present Penciled. The inspiration behind this one was very simple...the top view of a pencil. Crazy, huh?! Hand drawn and some funky shapes mixed with modern colors make this a really fun pattern! I can picture this on baby bedding for a little girl's room or maybe even some office products!
