  • Fabric + Art Exclusively for Minted

    I have launched my first fabric design with Minted this week. It comes in a variety of "neutral" colors, as well as some more bright/rich colors. The pattern is simple and universal, but I think that it would look especially great in nurseries and kids rooms. 

    View the fabric here.

    I have also launched a new winning design for the West Elm + Minted Art Challenge. I love this piece because it's soft warm colors and it's a little different from my other works. I called this one Deserai because it reminds me a little bit of a desert-scape, but also of the way the light enters my studio in the morning and late afternoon. It just has this glow about it.

    Deserai is available as a limited edition print, and comes both framed and un-framed up 44"x44".

  • Anthropologie Collaboration

    Collaged Fauna Pillow by Patricia Vargas of Parima Studio for Anthropologie

     

    This collaboration was in the works for almost a year, and I was over the moon about when I was first approcahed by Anthropologie. It was so incredibly hard not to share it with everyone. But I am so excited to finally be able to reveal this secret project I've been working on.

    Anthro chosen two of my beloved animal prints to be used on decorative pillows, featuring gold trim and a floral pattern (also my own) as the back. I love the way that they turned out, but my favorite is the ostrich. Probably because red is one of my favorite colors, but everyone else seems to favor the elephant.

    You can view the pillows here.

  • Parima Turns 2!

    Abstract painting by Parima Studio

    Seriously, how is it that time just passes us by so quickly. I can't believe that Parima Studio is entering into its third year already!

    Following my dreams of opening Parima Studio has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. The joy, the challenges, the lessons I've learn, and the people I have connected with over these past couple of years has all been amazing. I think the best part is when I hear the positive comments and stories from happy customers, it just warms my heart and humbles my soul. So thank you, thank you thank you!

    As a huge thank you, and as part of the celebration, I am giving away an original 24"x24" stretched painting (worth $350). This is a brand new painting- never before seen, but nonetheless ready to be hung in a special place in a new home. 

    Every painting I create holds a little piece of me. A little piece of the happiness I experience when creating it, and I hope that it will make you smile every time you pass it by.

    The giveaway is open to U.S residents. There are multiple ways to enter your name, and yes, you can do all of them to up your chances! The giveaway will run from Jan. 22 - Jan. 25 11:59pm (PST).

    Good luck!

    Sorry this is late. I was a total scatter brain this week, with being out of the country, shop small/ cyber monday sale, catching up on order and emails. Well lets just say it has been non-stop work since I got back, aaaaand I may have thought that we were still in November .....

     

    I tried to keep this months calendar fairly simple. It never snows or get very cold here in So Cal, so this is my way of bringing winter into my home.
