Geometric Florals

For the past six months or so, I’ve been a big fan of geo florals using triangles in particular… Though I’ve always loved geometrics combined with floral prints, the whole triangle with flowers obsession began when we were working with our book designer and she wanted to add a geometric touch to our end papers and book jacket spine… We first thought a small floral pattern, hand painted by Leslie, would have worked nicely but Helen loved the triangles that Leslie had painted and motivated us in that direction instead. Once I saw it, I was in love and ever since, I’ve been loving the look of geo florals with triangles. I’ve seen the combination plenty of times before but for me, it suddenly made a connection with me personally. I found this pattern below, made by Sesame & Lilly, and it pretty much nails the look I love – which is overlaying the two.

I’d really like to have a scarf like this or a piece of clothing or even art framed on my walls in this collage-y effect. Do you like geometries and florals together too? How do you like them, overlaid or side by side (like geometric prints on pants with a floral blouse)?

    I am also a huge fan of geometric and floral patterns. I am such a sucker when something combines the two.
