Inspired by new colours and patterns she came across during a trip to Bali last year, Caroline Zucchero Hurley, who also happens to have a BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design, began to create beach throws, pillow covers and necklaces. What makes her items unique, is that she is using her background of painting by actually painting on her creations. I loved this. And, all of her items looked so cheerful too. For so many in the creative field, we can easily spend hours isolated in our studios. Caroline combatted this strange feeling of isolated existence by teaching at a pre-school part-time and now shares her passion through meaningful interaction with the children. After learning about her pre-school work, her appreciation of simple shapes and bright and bold colours made even more sense. She is also just so warm and all of her items are so beautiful—make sure to check her out if you missed her at Unique NYC.
