Decoincidence

collage of yellow print patterns on pillows - modernality2/etsy via Atticmag How do you compare yellow print patterns on pillows and a staircase?

Sometimes, color and pattern can create unlikely relationships when, in reality, there appears to be no connection except for a visual idea. The yellow print patterns pillow collage [top] was assembled by modernality2, an etsy seller from Utah to show the various patterns she sells in a single colorway.  Mainly geometric, with yellow fields or accents, the fabric patterns used for the pillow covers also include some animal prints and florals as well as a damask motif print.

yellow print patterns on stenciled staircase by Carol Leonesio - Painter Girl via AtticmagA yellow-and-white stenciled staircase uses Moroccan-inspired geometrics from Royal Designs. This was created by Massachusetts decorative painter Carol Leonesio and posted on her blog, Painter Girl.  The stencils in question are: Curved Connection, Eastern Lattice Small, Moorish Fleur de Lis, and Endless Moorish Circle. And actually, Leonesio says she did two identical staircases in the same house. When I first saw the stairs I immediately thought of the pillows! Conceptually, they are similar but unrelated — hence “decoincidence.” Perhaps the people who own the house will buy some of the pillows to tie things together for us out here in blogland.
