Now let's here some more about Robin of Zeppiprints:
Describe your perfect day:
My perfect day would be divided into family time and work time. I would start the day with design time on my computer, it's the first thing I think of when I wake up! My son, who is 18 months old, sleeps a couple of hours longer than I do, so it's time when I can really concentrate. Later, I would take my husband and son for brunch, my favorite meal. Then, we'd drive out to the beach and take photos. I consider myself extremely fortunate because I can actually have "my perfect day" if I choose.
Where/when so ideas hit you? Where do you find inspiration?
I come up with more ideas than I could ever actually create. This is my strong point and weak point all at the same time. At any point in the day, everywhere I look, I see ideas for new designs. There are countless notebooks and scraps of paper lying around my house, completely unorganized, full of ideas. The problem is focus. I love all colors and patterns, so it's very hard to create a cohesive style.
It's awesome when you see a shop that looks like a great magazine spread, or the front page of Etsy...but that's not my shop! I might create a conservative nature inspired acorn print one day and a nursery print covered with bright patterns the next! That's the beauty of design, the freedom.
Describe your perfect workspace
My perfect workspace would be an industrial loft in an urban setting with a great view of the Cliffs of Moher. Led Zeppelin would be off to the side playing "Tangerine" and my computer would be sitting among fresh flowers and gourmet chocolates. That would be perfect!
On a more realistic level, I would love an open space with tons of natural light, chic furniture, and less toys.
What drives or motivates you?
I'm motivated by my love of design. It's simple really. My husband has classic cars, my son has Christmas morning, and I have design.
Tell me a random fun fact about you.
I have an affinity for British...stuff! My favorite bands, tv shows, actors, and cars are British.
