This is a new repeat pattern I've been working on. It's inspired by Lake Bled, a Slovenian village built around a lake with a tiny island in the middle which has a Church atop.
I visited Lake Bled in 2006 while I was living in Venice. I still remember it being one of the most magic (if not a little touristic) places I've ever been. The night we arrived (although we hadn't known ahead of time) there was a festival happening. There were thousands of tiny floating candles in the lake. So divine.
We hired bikes and rode around the lake picnicking and taking photos.They have swan shaped boats that you can hire to row to the church island in the middle of the lake.
I'm thinking this print could look super cute as wallpaper in a child's bedroom. I'm currently working on a personal collection of repeat patterns some of which I hope to have printed onto fabrics and/or wallpaper.
