And it’s autumn. I harvest my apples, pears, hazelnuts and have collected quite a lot of flower seeds. Dried flowers from my garden are now appearing in new patterns. read about it here
Dieuwertje van de Moosdijk is a surface pattern designer specializing in handmade floral patterns for the home / interior market. Come have a walk in her pretty pattern garden, filled with flowers, plants and animals.
My whole life I’ve been surrounded by beautiful patterns. On the antique tiles my father collected. On the ceramics my mother kept buying (it didn’t matter if something was broken, it only meant we could buy something new). On the beautiful fabrics by Laura Ashley en Liberty that were used everywhere in our house. On the huge collection of floral cards we had at home. And on the William Morris wrapping paper we wrapped our presents in. Trained as a ceramist and text writer, and after having made collages for six years, I finally started designing patterns myself. What a joy! First I started working as a print designer at the wonderful brand Oilily World. Since 2014 I have been working as a freelance surface pattern designer for various clients in the home industry, stationery and fashion world. Working from my Amsterdam garden studio, I’m surrounded by what inspires me the most: everything that grows, flies and moves in nature.

My designs are available for licensing, which means you are allowed to use the design for a specific product group, a fixed territory and period of time. Some designs can be sold outright, be it separate or in a design collection. You then own the rights to use the design on as many products as you please. I also work on commission base and create a bespoke design. All my designs are digitalised in Adobe Photoshop and/or Adobe Illustrator. They can easily be adjusted in size and colour to suit your specific product needs. As I design for multiple markets and products, I’m familiar with the specific design and repeat requirements for most products. All designs can be made in different colourways and matching coordinate patterns are available to form collections.
Sometimes all you need is a pretty floral dress…
