In the Spring 2022 edition of aspire, two of Cean Irminger‘s patterns from her Kiddo: Heyday collection are featured – Balloonacy and Dottie.

In aspire’s “An Expert Guide To All Things Patterns,” William Morris, who is known for his revival of traditional British textile arts during the Arts and Crafts Movement, believes that bigger is better. He says, “Do not be afraid of large patterns; if properly designed they are more restful to the eye than small ones … Very small rooms, as well as very large ones, look better ornamented with large patterns.” This portfolio from the aspire design and home magazine spring 2022 issue is visual evidence – bring on the patterns!”

Balloonacy, a waterjet mosaic shown above (#4) in polished Iris, Sweetgrass, Fern, Orchid, Cornflower, Zinnia, Indigo, Thassos, Goldenrod, and Tiger Lily is part of Cean Irminger’s third Kiddo collection, Kiddo: Heyday™ for New Ravenna. Of the inspiration behind Balloonacy, Cean Irminger said, “No matter how old my girls get, if there is a balloon in the room, it must not hit the ground. Every child I know is obsessed.”

Dottie, a hand-cut mosaic shown above (#2) in honed Thassos with polished Nero Marquina and Allure, is part of Cean Irminger’s third Kiddo collection, Kiddo: Heyday™ for New Ravenna.
