The Lora Collection from Eskayel

I always love seeing what Shannon from Eskayel is making. Not only if she an inspiring business woman (her contributions to our Biz Ladies lunches were always so thought-provoking), but her designs consistently push the wallpaper field further toward a modern, artistic style. Her latest collection is called The Lora Collection and includes a wide…

Arthur Slenk for NLXL Wallpaper

As much as I love pattern, I really appreciate when a wallpaper can add not just pattern but texture to a wall. A sense of history, patina or other weather details always gives a room so much more dimension. These wallpapers from Dutch wallpaper company NLXL (who produced another great textured collection, Scrapwood by Piet…

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…

Cat + Dog Wallpaper

Last week I had one of the happiest moments of my life. After a nerve-wracking application process, I got the news that I would be able to adopt an incredible dog from The Sato Project. I was a vowed cat-lady for life until Max texted me after meeting Hope (the puppy) at a West Elm…

New from MakeLike

I always get excited to see an email from Portland’s MakeLike in my inbox. They’ve already nailed an awesome collection of nature-inspired wallpapers (Succulents, Cacti, Trees and Mushrooms), so now they’re moving on to something a bit more geometric. ‘100 Things’ is a new hand-illustrated product line that is part of their Shapes Collection and…

Removable Wallpaper by Chasing Paper

As much as I love the lack of repair work involved in being a renter, it always bums me out to be prohibited from making major changes like cabinets, flooring and wallpaper. I have a little tear-out booklet of wallpaper that I’m dying to try one day, but they’ve all been off-limits until I can…

JuJu by Graham & Brown

Last weekend in Brooklyn it got up to 55 degrees outside, and it felt like spring was finally here. Sadly the temperatures have started to dip again, but that little glimmer of hope had me checking trees up and down my block to spot signs of growth. All those tiny buds starting to open made…

Boudoir by Lisa Bengtsson

After a few weeks of miserable cold, Brooklyn seems to have taken a turn for the warmer this week! The spring-like weather is totally out of place right now, but I’m going to enjoy it while I can. It’s always nice to skip that second pair of socks. In honor of those springy temperatures, I…

Spellbound by Graham & Brown

I know Halloween is long gone, but I’ll always have a soft spot for things that are a little spooky or creepy. Maybe it’s my inner child (who is a little on the goth side), but whenever I see patterns that use darker colors and feature spiders or creepy crawlies, I kind of love it….

New: Jocelyn Warner Wallpaper

These days, I’m all about a great black and white pattern. If it’s geometric, all the better. This beautiful new pattern, Cube Star, is from designer Jocelyn Warner. Inspired by the juxtaposition of cubes and Art Deco style, Jocelyn’s newest design comes in a range of colors like warm reds and pinks, soft pale gray…

Lisa Congdon for Hygge & West

Nothing gets me more excited than seeing a designer expand into a new medium. I’ve been a fan of Lisa Congdon’s work for as long as I can remember, and it’s been an absolute joy to watch her art career take off and grow into exciting new projects and materials. This week, her first collection…

Surreptitious Wallpaper

Brooklyn-based designer Lindsey Adelman has been rocketing straight to the top of the design world since her very first collection. I remember writing about her back in 2006 when her watercolor drawings were at the top of my wishlist. She’s since gone on to create just about everyone’s favorite lighting and seemed to have been…

Abigail Edwards wallpaper

I wish I could hop on a flight across the Atlantic to check out this month’s Tent London show. There are always such beautiful pieces debuted there, and this wallpaper from Abigail Edwards is no exception. “Brambleweb” and “Wilson’s Crystals” (wallpaper) and “Dragonfly” (a tile mural) are being showcased at Abigail’s booth for Tent and…

Good morning! After a week off and some time away from the laptop, I am so happy to be back and blogging! I cannot believe it’s already September, but I’m excited to start swapping summer styles for fall colors and shiny metallics. Now that September is here, it’s time for Decorex, the annual design show…

icff 2012: wallpaper

After yesterday’s shiny metal objects post, I figured it was time to up the ante with some intense patterns. Today’s ICFF coverage is all about wallpaper, something that seemed to pop up everywhere. Inside cabinets, on walls, under glass on tables — patterned paper was alive and kicking. I rounded up my favorite new designs…

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…

One of the best things about the Biz Ladies lunches we have in our office every week is getting to meet so many of the talented artists behind my favorite work. I’ve been a fan of Katie Deedy’s wallpaper at Grow House Grow since her debut back at Bklyn Designs, but it was especially nice…

the owls by camilla meijer

I can’t remember the last time I said this, but I’m actually getting excited for this year’s ICFF. Maybe it’s the fact that the weather is supposed to be better by then, but I’m really looking forward to seeing some new work and (hopefully) feeling inspired by great new design again. This series from Camilla…

paisley crescent by mini moderns

Speaking of pattern, this new Paisley Crescent wallpaper design from Mini Moderns’ latest collection is pretty fantastic. I’m not sure my apartment could handle something this bold, but if you’ve got a little powder room in need of a bright pop, this pattern in the orange colorway above would be perfection.
