Background Idea

I just spotted a very clever background idea on Candace Bahouth's new "Avebury" design for Ehrman Tapestry.  Click on the "click here to view larger image" link for a good look.  It's two colors in stripes of varying widths and irregular edges in two muted colors.

 I think this would look fabulous for those pretty florals with the bland, one color backgrounds, sort of like this Point of It All Designs piece.

Many thanks to Candace for her clever design work!

Interesting idea. I also like subtle stripes in dull & shiny, or very close shades.

Good idea, Liz.

I had the same thought when I saw it -- and am fairly certain I had seen it also in another venue. I have a load of Bahouth and Ehrman books and will look there. I agree it would be nice in close shades, too.

Wonder if Candace Bahouth uses this for a background a lot? Many designers have signature styles, after all….
