I love a simple design. That takes advantage of colour to really pop and look more complicated than it really is.
In a world that is becoming more complex, the repetition of a simple design is soothing and mindful.
As someone who lives with BPD, I get great peace from simple repetitive patterns. It gives me a space of peace to help me regulate my emotions.
