new: jill malek wallpapers

One of my favorite things that happens in design, is when an artist finds a way to elevate the everyday to a new level. I’ve always been intrigued by naturally occurring patterns in nature and life and it’s fun to see that concept come to life in Jill Malek‘s newest wallpapers, called Urban Frequencies. Dinner Party- the pattern above- was inspired by the remnants of a good evening with friends and Voyagyer, below, was inspired by the route maps that aircrafts follow on a daily basis. I can’t tell you how often I stared at those lines on a screen during the book tour last year and imagined them coming to life in a more interesting way. To see them turned into a colorful wallpaper is definitely more fun than hopping back on a plane. Jill is debuting her new designs at Wanted Design this weekend, so if you’re in NYC be sure to stop by and check them out. In the meantime, you can see more of Jill’s work online right here. xo, grace

  3. Very cool! Wall paper can really be art!

    That 1st one would drive me crazy. I’d constantly be trying to wipe up the rings. OCD much?
