Los Angeles-based interior designer Chris Barrett informed us about her debut attempt in textile design. In line with her laid-back, casual California style, Barrett created this new range of fabrics, which are "born out of need".
It's interesting to see the abstract manner in which Barrett incorporated elements of nature into her design. "I wanted to see something new in outdoor fabrics, designs inspired by nature, but not so literal, using colors that excite me.", so says the designer, who is also known for designing residences for Hollywood luminaries such as John Stamos, Charlize Theron and Candice Bergen.
The complete line consists of seven patterns inspired by iconic cities on the California coastline: Big Sur, Cambria, Carmel, Mendocino, Montecito, Monterey and Ojai. Each city, and respective design, has its own personality and vibrancy, and is infused with Barrett's innate sense of California living.
