Designer Erja Hirvi brings us this “pawsitively purrfect” pattern made up of three repeating kitties, called “Siniverinen” or “blue-blooded.” Hirvi wanted to capture the many different dimensions of cats’ personalities and nature, from their playfulness to their predatory instincts. One sitting, another taking a cat nap, and one on the prowl; each of these cats leaves a beautiful black silhouette against a grey background.
With the weather warming up for summer, I’ve seen more and more cats perched on windows, bird watching and soaking up the sun’s warm rays, so I thought this would be the perfect print for the July desktop calendar.
Want to take this pattern from the digital to the tangible? The Marimekko Siniverinen Grey/Black Fabric is sold by the repeat, so that each of the three poses is captured on each cut. If you have read my profile snippet, you know I am a self-proclaimed cat lady, so I was ecstatic when this fabric came in. I personally used it as wall art in my front hallway, but it would also look great as a duvet cover or made into pillows, too.
Download the desktop wallpaper without the calendar, so that this pattern never goes out of date.
