makelike: forest collection

by Grace Bonney

There was a period last year when I seriously considered covering not one but two rooms in my apartment with Makelike’s amazing cactus wallpaper. I decided to wait because it would be a bear to take down when we move to the next apartment, but I’ve never stopped dreaming of a living room (or kitchen) covered in the gorgeous pale green and white version. Now Makelike has gone and given me a brand new group of patterns to obsess over: their new forest collection!

This hand-illustrated collection consists of hand-screeprinted wallpaper, posters and tea-towels with a forest theme. Focusing on the “lush textures of the natural world,” Makelike drew from their Pacific Northwest roots to create a colorful range of patterns that you can now buy in textile or paper form. I’m seriously into the pattern above, but you can check out (and shop) the full collection online right here (tea towels are $26 and wallpaper is $150). That pinkish paper in the first picture above is SO going on something in my home soon. Move over cacti, these pretty trees may be taking your place . . .
