Punchbowl Peek: Deco-inspired patterns

I thought I would share with you a little peek at two of the textile patterns I'm working on right now. Both are inspired primarily by the 1920's and Art Deco architecture. Something to know about me: I'm an Art Deco-phile. I'm fascinated by the history, architecture, art,  and writing of the era. If it's circa 1920's, I'm interested. A few years ago, I toured the Eastern Columbia building in Los Angeles (covered here  and here on Rachel's Sparrow) and fell in love. And yes, The Great Gatsby is my favorite book.
