The sun has been shining beautifully all week up here in Aberdeen and I am so excited for all the adventures that come with warm weather. I had some free time (I went to work two hours early) so decided to take a walk down the beach to get myself some much needed vitamin D and it made me realise how much I would love to live right on the coast one day.
I found surface pattern designer Jessica Hogarth a little while ago after seeing one of her greetings cards at work and fell in love with her quirky illustration style and bright colours. Her “Life by the Sea” collection contains everything you see when you’re at the seaside – beach huts, cute town houses, boats, wildlife and, of course, the sea. A bright colour palette of blue, green, orange and mustard yellow practically takes you there with sand in your toes and an ice cream in hand.
Jessica Hogarth is based in Whitby designing on her own label as well as collaborations and has products in Utility, Paperchase and Oliver Bonas. You can view and shop her collections here.
