Handpainted Pattern Spotlight: Fallow

Posted by: Kali • Jul 12

Handpainted Pattern Spotlight: Fallow

Our Agrarian Collection features patterns that can be installed in so many different configurations, so we thought it best to give these patterns their own spotlight. First up is Fallow! Each 8x8 tile features a quarter of a circle, giving you the freedom to construct or deconstruct the pattern in any way you choose. Arrange it to make full circles, semicircles, four quadrants, or a combination of all three. We're sharing design inspiration below, but if you want more head to our Agrarian Pinterest Board

Full Circle: 
Four of these tiles make a full circle. Go for bold polka dots in our Cool Motif or more subtle with the White Motif

We love the idea of trying two color motifs in an arrangement like this (our graphic designer calls it moon and stars): 

Half Circles: 
Whether you set them horizontally or vertically, you're sure to be over the moon for this pattern.

We think these half circles would make for an equally impactful wall or floor tile option:

They can also be set in an offset pattern, which has an oversized Ogee Drop feel:

This pattern options as a subtle feel that makes the perfect pop of pattern for a wall application:

Try a pin wheeled look by turning the tiles like the rendering below (how amazing would a floor be in this pattern?)

Get Creative:
One pattern, endless opportunities. We discovered that you can really get creative with this pattern and make an installation that's all your own. For example, this rope-like configuration: 

Explore a blend of two motifs and create a repeating circular pattern like this: 

You can also create a hypnotic statement in your space with something like this:
