Adaptation: Pattern Research

As I require a lot of surface patterns, I looked at Rangoli designs, which are rather geometric and full of block colours. However, Indian henna or 'Mehendi', gets its beauty purely with the pattern. The intricacy of the patterns gives it its beauty.

Here are some examples of 'Mehendi' patterns that I also want to use to create strong silhouetted architecture for the courtyard.


  1. Hey Le :) Great to see this project really come to life!! I like the colours and their meanings!! And the henna patterns are beautiful!

  2. Hey, Lydia =) Thank you. I'm rather excited about this too =D
