Ottoline de Vries founded the London-based Dutch design company (named Ottoline) in 2010, growing it into a prominent purveyor of fabulously patterned homegoods like wallpaper, furniture, lampshades, throw pillows and art. Inspired by architecture, nature, artists, geometry and more, one of the things all her patterns and products have in common is they broadcast a happy energy. And the North London home she shares with her partner and two children is a perky, patterned gallery, showcasing some of the best of her designs.
