Periwinkle is a sophisticated shade of purple. I’m usually not a purple fan, but this color was our favorite as kids, and our dad painted a dresser in a similar tone for us. It coordinated with the curtains in our bedroom. Yes, dad has a design eye too.
The inspiration for this artwork was a lavender thistle. The center flower motif, salamander, and lizard were taken from a drawing in my sketchbook. Periwinkle is the #Pantone color of the year for 2022. I decided to explore my lizard sketch for a Spoonflower fabric design challenge. Since then, we were blessed to spend time with family in Florida–where I gathered more inspiring material–and we noticed a salamander on-the-move by the swimming pool.
My design was created for wallpaper and fabric. I developed more coordinating designs that are available in my shop. Take a look! If you have any questions about fabric or are just inspired by purple, send me a message!
This design is available as fabric, wallpaper and home goods.
