The designers Final Major Project is a collection of prints created for interiors to bring the feeling of serenity of nature into the home, whilst showcasing high-end designs printed onto a beautiful cotton-linen blend to show texture, creating depth in each design.
Inspiration for the project came from going on walks and visiting gardens throughout the seasons that influences a positive wellbeing, in which she found a deep passion for botanicals, and expressing her skills in detailed watercolour illustration and designing patterns – showing her knowledge of the intricate details and colour in nature.
Elsie has always been fascinated by pattern and how it can transform a living space. Having an eye for detail, scale and colour are skills that she thinks are fundamental to being a successful Surface Pattern Designer, which she has highly developed through projects at university.
