New: Grow House Grow Wallpapers

I can’t believe that ICFF starts next weekend! Somehow this spring just flew by and Design Week is officially upon us. We’re heading to Brimfield first (next week!) but before we dive into trade shows full-time I wanted to share a little sneak preview of the awesome new collection that Katie Deedy of Grow House Grow. An extension of her Spring 2012 Far Rockaway line, Katie’s latest designs (two wallpapers, matching fabrics and a new tile design) were inspired by two different turn of the century New York Times articles (referenced on her site). There’s a cheerful monkey pattern, In the Bathhouse, inspired by the true story of a wayfaring monkey, and That Highly Intelligent Clam, inspired by turn-of-the-century bar banter and, last but not least, The Cedars, a beautiful tile inspired by a long lost Far Rockaway hotel. All of these are gorgeous, but my favorites are the fabrics Katie designed to coordinate with the wallpapers. They’re beautiful and intricate and such a great evolution of Katie’s style. You can check out all of Katie’s new designs online right here or visit her in person at ICFF, Booth #2546. Thanks, Katie! xo, grace

  1. Interesting monkey type creature on the top picture. Sadly in my flat my landlord won’t let me put up wallpaper – it’s just white walls and whatever I dare stick onto them (Jackson Pollock reprints mainly). Thanks for the typically excellent designs though, Design Sponge. And have a great weekend!

  2. Amazing so full of detail. The prints have an arts and crafts early 1900’s feel to them.

  3. Thanks to your post I visited their site. Wow, what gorgeous wallpaper they have.

  6. Makes me want to incorporate more patterns into my work! Ugh, SWOON.

  7. These patterns make my imagination explode and I loved the After the Jump interview with Katie – what great reminders she gave to see the world through your own eyes!
