Comments Off on Pinterest: Colourblocked Designs

Last month’s Pinterest round-up was dedicated to all things colour. With the onset of summer, we’re still finding ourselves drawn to bright, bold shades, but this time we’re focusing on our favourite Pins that showcase one of today’s hottest trends: colourblocking.


Whether blocked out in stripes, geometric shapes or something more free-flowing, playing with colour and contrast is all the rage.


If you’re style is more classic, take inspiration from Hudson’s Bay Company, the beloved Canadian brand that’s home to many of EQ3’s Gallery Store Locations. Their infamous striped motif is a National (and International classic) classic proving that colourblocking is not only trendy, but timeless too. This design looks great on everything from clothing and accessories to home decor, but we’re particularly drawn to this custom striped RV application, which we Pinned just a few days ago:

If your style tends to be more lighthearted and quirky, take cue from these twists on designer classics and block out colours in geometric shapes (square, rectangular, and diamond patterns will work well):
