Bittersweet Sheet Set
Country Door Fall '20

The textile team wanted an organic, repeating bittersweet pattern for an updated fall look. Initially, I started with leaves and sprigs for a more organic look, but it progressed to a more simple look that could translate

well as embroidery.

Hazel Quilt
Country Door Fall '20

The top of bed team wanted a fall floral design for a quilt in a panel layout. Though I am skilled in many mediums of fine art, I picked components from the collection of Shutterstock art they had chosen. Country Door's quilts are usually smaller repeat patterns - our hope was that this large scale panel design will be a refreshing

new look for our customer.

Country Door Fall '21

The furniture team wanted a new side table for Country Door. I created this design using Rhino, incorporating more storage space and adding extra details like the side handle and panels

on top to make it more unique.

The dinnerware team wanted a special edition "Christmas barn" cookie jar for Winter 2020. I incorporated details from the inspiration image on every side of the cookie jar so that it could be put anywhere in the kitchen and be appreciated from every angle.
