New: Julia Rothman Wallpaper for Hygge & West

by Grace Bonney

If there is anything thing I love more than design, it has to be pets. Whether you share your home with a dog, cat, bird, hamster, lizard or anything else in between, I will always have a soft spot for the living things that keep us company. So when I heard about Julia Rothman‘s new dog-themed wallpaper for Hygge & West, I was psyched.

“Dog Park” is a cheerful illustrated pattern that includes portraits of Julia’s own dog, a Wheaton Terrier named Rudy, as well as the team dogs of Hygge & West. The wallpaper comes in two colorways, but my favorite part of this pattern is that 100% of the profits from this design will be donated to Copper’s Dream Animal Rescue in San Francisco and Midwest Animal Rescue in Minneapolis to help dogs find the loving homes they all deserve.

In addition to her dog pattern, Julia also designed two new patterns, Foret (inspired by Indian Chintz wall hangings from the 1600s) and Serengeti (inspired by her recent travel to Uganda). Click through to check them out in detail and to see their fabric counterparts as well! You can also skip here to check out these patterns on the Hygge & West site and order a roll or two! xo, grace
