juju papers

Just when I was starting to hear a voice in my head that said, “Maybe I could use a break from wallpapers for a bit,” I got an email from Avery at Juju Papers. Despite feeling like I was on the verge of a wallpaper hiatus, I let myself fall for Avery’s designs pretty quickly and imagined papering my kitchen in the red/cream design above. My design whims can be so fickle.

Avery hand-prints all of her wallpapers to order from her studio in Portland, Oregon. She uses water-based inks and sources sustainably harvested papers for each design, all of which were inspired by original ink paintings she created. I love the transition from painting to wallpaper and would love to see more artists embrace this look. It’s what made me fall in love with Nama Rococo years ago, and it’s what draws me to these pieces now — that hand-drawn feeling that looks so fresh in wallpaper form. You can check out all of Avery’s designs right here and place an order via her website. I’d love to see images of these installed, so if anyone takes the plunge and orders them, please pass on your “after” photos. I can only imagine how pretty these look in person. xo, grace
