There are very (very) few illustrators whose work makes me as happy as Carson Ellis‘. I once wrote her to ask about turning one of her Wildwood illustrations into a tattoo (she kindly obliged) and I’ve been crossing my fingers and toes for years that she might turn some of her artwork into wallpaper. Today my decorating dreams have come true with the launch of Carson’s very first wallpaper design for Portland’s Juju Papers.

Carson’s first handmade wallpaper pattern is called Barn Owl and Hollyhocks. Using flora and fauna to create her pattern, Carson created a design that works equally well for adults and little ones. Inspired by her own Linnton, Oregon backyard (and a barn owl she attempted to rescue on her property), this nature-filled pattern comes in four metallic two-tone colors: Gold on Cream, Silver on Cream, Gold on Charcoal, and Rose Gold on Cream. I can’t wait to see this in person, but in the meantime, you can check out Carson’s wallpaper (and shop online) right here. xo, grace
