This was a collaboration with ANITA DAWSON DESIGN GROUP, IN San Diego. 15 feet long custom accent curtains, for a living room. Burnt orange and pepper red dots floating up on silky cream fabric. The idea to make the design look effortless but also giving a statement to complement the strong bones of the room. I printed each dot separately. I made templates of each shape on different pieces of card, placed them on the fabric to create the composition before starting printing. Giving the illusion that the dots are floating up, there were more at the bottom and less at the top. The red dots are perfect circles and the burnt orange ones more like loose egg shapes, a simple idea but that gave the design just the right amount of decadence.
