New: Rebecca Atwood Designs

One of the things I love most about events in the office is getting to meet talented members of the creative community face-to-face. Each time we host a craft class, Biz Ladies lunch or welcome art & design students, we get the chance to meet incredibly talented people and up-and-coming artists. At last week’s Egg Decorating Party we were fortunate enough to meet designer Rebecca Atwood. A RISD graduate and former Anthropologie team member, Rebecca has been working with major retailers to design home product collections while consulting on trends and design. But today she officially launches her design collection, Rebecca Atwood Designs, which consists of several beautiful pillow designs.

Blending traditional textile techniques with hand-painted details, Rebecca designs each piece in her line from her Brooklyn studio. A native of Cape Cod, Rebecca was inspired by the ocean’s color palette, as well as the antiques and family heirlooms in her home. Those little details and watery color palettes fill the new collection with so much texture and rich color that I’m pretty sure this one’s going to be impossible to resist for me. I’m really loving indigo lately (stay tuned for more indigo love this week!) so these soft blue pillows are calling my name. They’re even washable and designed to age well as they’re worn in. As an added bonus, Rebecca donates a portion of every sale’s proceeds to Aid to Artisans. I can’t wait to see these in person, but until then you can check out (and shop) the full collection online right here. You can also check out Rebecca’s blog, Instagram feed and Twitter feed for more textile inspiration. Congrats, Rebecca! xo, grace
