Creative people are inspired by the creativity of others.

Creative people are inspired by the creativity of others. Which hopefully  explains why I've just spent an hour poring over Swedish fabrics from the 1940s.

My favorite of the collection is called, appropriately, Brown Hawaii:

There's a classic restaurant here in Stockholm, Prinsen, where they have sweet little booths you can sit in, in the back; each booth is decorated with different Josef Frank patterns. If I'm not mistaken, I was in the Brown Hawaii last time I was there.

@Angelica. AMAZING. Can't wait to visit again--last time I was there I stayed at the Clarion in Sodermalm which had the best breakfast and most lovely design. Ahh and the lady of the lake in the city hall building. And the VASA! I miss Sweden. Hope to be invited back soon..and spend time at Prinsen with all the Josef Franks. Maybe I can do a workshop there. Hmmm.

I thought I was creative, until I met some truly talented people. Nice fabric though.

That fabric looks wonderful. I'd love to give some of it to my grandmother in order to create a unique quilt! :)
I love looking at other people's work. It's fascinating.

I do agree that creativity can come from the others creativity. But somehow, people tend to think that it's cheating and plagiarism. They think that they should creative from their own ability. I myself always improved by watching what people doing. Thanks for sharing the pic. ^^

I absolutely and totally agree with your title here. When I need to create something really creative I spare some time to browse through similar works of other artists. It gives me inspiration and allows coming up with something fresh and new.
