Textile Designer Malene Barnett

I'm obsessed with patterns and textiles, so I was excited when a friend shared the work of Malene Barnett. Malene is a Brooklyn, New York based textile designer and the principal for Malene B Custom Handmade Carpets. Her carpet designs, inspired by her international travels and Caribbean heritage, are vibrant, artistic representations of global cultures.

I have to admit, it was really hard to choose which carpets to include in this post because I really love them all. The rich colors and unique patterns are refreshing to see in carpet designs. I'm totally inspired by her creations.
Malene's designs take you on a journey around the world. On the left is Moorea, inspired by the Palm fronds from Tahiti and on the right is Mehndi, capturing the 5000 year old tradition of henna.

Notable photographer Todd Selby captured these beautiful images of Malene's home. Her interior is also rich in color, texture and speaks to her travels around the world. View more photos of her home here
