portland designers for hygge & west


I’ve got Portland on the brain this morning, so it worked out perfectly when I heard that Hygge & West had collaborated with a great local design team called Pattern People. Founded by Claudia Brown and Jessie Whipple Vickery, Pattern People specializes in surface design for everything from fashion to interiors. Claudia and Jessie designed a new series of beautiful wallpapers for Hygge & West that were inspired by the flora and fauna of the Pacific Northwest. Their Forest Leaves pattern (above) is my favorite, but the full collection is definitely worth checking out. I love the way Pattern People re-interpreted imagery that would normally be done in dark greens and browns in such modern color combinations. Click here to check out and shop the new collection online. xo, grace
