Nautical colors and imagery are so inspiring and there's something about them that just screams summer: waves, sunshine, sand between your toes and fresh seafood. Although this sunshine-y season is still a ways away, I'm already dreaming of summer vacation thanks to these designs from native New Yorker Thomas Paul. He has a degree in textiles from FIT and an incredible eye for design.
Starting with his own line of neckwear in the 1990s, his brand launched a collection of pillowcases in 2001. The collection has steadily expanded since then and now offers a number of home goods, including tablewear, stationery, and lamp shades.
Known for his bold colors and his enlarged animal graphic patterns, his work is incredibly eye-catching. I love these sea-creature-covered tea towels, bags, and pillows. Decisions, decisions!
