Dreaming of Sea Island ~ The Cloister in Silky Blues
The timeless elegance of blue and white never ceases to fade. It's classic aesthetic is like a fresh breeze. Thus when we took to sketching the next generation Sea Island silk scarf and pocket square for The Cloister gift shop, this monochromatic color palette very quickly transitioned from a dreamy design of very loose watercolor brush strokes in varying hues of cobalt blue to the most beautiful interpretation of a custom-designed toile in an azure blue color scheme with white.
Expanding the featured vignettes to include the very romantic Sea Island Chapel was a must when designing the silk scarf composition! ~If you haven't discovered this charming cottaged tucked into the shadow of The Cloister itself, nearly hidden behind Palm trees and fauna with a curtain of Spanish moss, be sure to make a visit next time you are among the Golden Isles of Georgia. Its stain glass windows are breathtaking.
Organizing all painted scenes to nest together in a pleasing cadence, while ensuring each gem sparkled in its own right was quite the design challenge. And then, enabling a repeatable design for each side of the square so that from a distance, the visual contouring of the scarf as a whole would reflect fashion and art... elevated to a new level of creativity.
