Inspired by the Sea

InspiredBytheSea

The sea is a constant source of inspiration. The ever changing colors and movements provide visual cues for designs and an over-arching sense of calm.  A few of our patterns are directly inspired by the sea.  While the waves pattern draws inspiration from the patterning left on the sand at low tide, the ripple design references the way shapes of the waves as they glint in the sub, and the marble pattern alludes to the swirling surf. These tonal patterns are a great for layering and can act as texture within a room. We hope you’ll enjoy them!

Celebrating Rebecca Atwood Designs’ Three Years Anniversary

3years

Hello!

This week marks three years since I launched my first collection of pillows. It has been a whirlwind of a ride and this anniversary seemed like a good time to reflect on the past few years.

Starting my own business has been the most challenging thing I’ve ever taken on, but also so rewarding! Seeing it grow, and being able to create product that I am truly passionate about — as my job — has given me a real sense of accomplishment.  It has also given me the opportunity to become engaged in the creative small business communities here in New York and elsewhere. I feel lucky that I can emphasize the creative process in my business, and I love dreaming up what to explore next, and knowing that anything is possible.

There have been other times that I’ve felt so overwhelmed, and unsure if I made the right choice in going out on my own. Despite the challenges, though, I think deep down, I’ve known that this was the right choice for me. I’ve had to learn so many new things that it’s been uncomfortable a lot of the way. I’ve had to learn how to use Quickbooks for bookkeeping, get a line of credit, project out financial plans so I can pay my bills, and so much more. I would be lying if I told you it’s been easy – but I’ve learned to be a little more at ease with the uncertainty, and that’s something I’ll constantly be relearning. I couldn’t be doing this without the support of my husband, family, and friends. Their belief in me keeps me going!

Now when I meet people who are familiar with the line they’re often surprised what a small operation we are. Everyday it’s Nellie, my right hand woman, and myself in the studio getting it all done. I have a great team of outside resources as well including my publicist Megan of Chloette Public Relations, my accountant Barb, my photographers Emily Johnston and Ren Yagolnitzer, my friends and mentors Andrea and Matthew, and our showrooms Studio Four, Harbinger, and Fritz Porter. It’s impossible to do everything all on your own and I am so thankful to all of them.

This year so many exciting projects will be coming to fruition. I’ve been thrilled to work with Method Home on our limited edition collection of hand soaps and cleaning products, and the second collection will be released in July. Our spring collection has just launched, and with it our first catalog! At the end of August, my book, Living with Pattern, will be released. I’m so excited to share with you how to use pattern in your home to share your story. In the fall we’ll also be releasing a new shibori color, as well as our first throws and woven pillows, and a collection of one of a kind embroidered pillows.

I want to thank all of you for supporting my line. For your thoughtful emails, Instagram comments, messages on Facebook, and orders. It means so much to me that you enjoy seeing my new designs and using them in your home. You can expect that I’ll be continuing to push our techniques, designs, and product offering forward over the next few years, and I hope we continue to see the growth that you have all made possible. I always love to hear from you and what you’re looking for so please don’t hesitate to send an email, instagram comment, or tweet and let me know what you think.

Thank you!
Rebecca
