Back to the 70s.

Shay has been inspired not only by her lush travels, but also by 60s and 70s design. Her patterns hold a psychedelic aspect that fits right in with the groovy facade of the decades. Shay’s collection fits right in with a mid century modern style. She plays on the classic vintage hues, but puts a modern spin with fresh, unique pattern work. Her work has been an interior designer favorite for years and has brought so many design projects to life.

A Neutral Pallet.

Alongside her bright, lively prints, Shay offers many styles using natural Earth tones. These patterns fit in seamlessly with a laid back design, yet still pushing chic and luxurious. Her Byron Fabric reminds us of oceanside villas. We love the Bark Fabric and Joshua Tree fabric for a neutral, tan scheme that takes us to the desert! The beauty of these neutrals is that they make for great base patterns to pair with brighter, bolder prints. Try it for yourself and see your space instantly gain more depth.
