We have a very special trend report this month that motivated a few of The Ink Nest Artists to create new sets for the shop – and is one of my favorite trends of 2014 – the folkloric mix. While folk art can encompass a wide variety of cultures, we mainly focused on Scandinavian Folk.
Vibrant blues and bold reds make up many of the folk art palettes. Which when paired with light pinks, orange, brown and turquoise, the combinations can create cute and playful designs.
Animal motifs, flowers and geometrics are at the heart of the trend. Folk design works very well when used for stationery, textiles or home goods. I sense some folk art inspired Valentine’s Day cards in the making!
