You all loved the pictures of Julie Paterson’s latest collection for Designer Rugs in her Blue Mountains cottage earlier this week. Now she’s giving you the chance to win a little bit of the design process in the form of an original painting for your own home.
Julie has taken four of her best rug designs and overlaid them with four of her key fabric designs, playing about with composition and colour to create Remixed, a new collection of eight rugs that respectfully riffs on the popular cloth originals.
To illustrate this process, the artist and textile designer has created an edition of screen prints inspired by the rugs, reflecting the next stage in the back and forth of her process. She’s showing them at Global Gallery in Paddington but you can win one of the pieces of art that didn’t make the final cut.
To be in with a chance of winning simply pop over to cloth fabric’s Facebook page, tell her Interiors Addict sent you and why you’d love one of her pieces in your home. A winner will be chosen on Wednesday.
“The artwork is one of the pieces that didn’t make the final hang for the show,” says Julie. “These pieces form part of the process and I want to increase awareness of the process where so much more work gets created than ever gets to see the light of day. This work in its own right has merit.”
She’ll eventually be selling some of the other pieces that didn’t make the exhibition in her Surry Hills shop for up to $500 each.
