weekly wrap up + kirath ghundoo wallpaper

by Stephanie

The week has finally come to a close, and I feel like I’m making some progress on my resolutions/life list so far. Today I’m heading out early to find a used mandolin that I can use for my new lessons! Learning to play a new instrument was one of my favorite resolutions, so I decided to jump on it right away. Hopefully I can learn to play like this . . . one day. Before I head out, I wanted to wrap things up with this beautiful wallpaper from graduate student Kirath Ghundoo. I love being able to share student work, and Kirath’s final collection (above and below) for her master’s in textiles is just fantastic.

I love the bold, varied pattern and can definitely see the color palette connection between this design and its inspiration, Paul Smith’s Spring/Summer 2011 Ready-To-Wear collection. These wallpapers aren’t available for sale yet, but they’ll be on display starting January 15th at Huddersfield University. So if you’re in the UK this month, be sure to check out these papers in person. For the rest of us across the pond, I’ll keep you up to date if the collection hits stores or an online shop. In the meantime, you can check out more of Kirath’s work right here.

I’m off to see what sort of used instruments Brooklyn has to offer, so until Monday, have a wonderful weekend! See you on Monday. Happy 2011! xo, grace
