Surreptitious Wallpaper

by Grace Bonney

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 a universal “best in show” at this year’s ICFF. She’s now producing wallpaper with Anthropologie that has such a beautiful glow to it. Her ‘Surreptitious’ wallpaper was inspired by English and Moorish design and, in detail, reminds me of peeking into a microscope to discover a world of beautiful objects and patterns. Anthro is selling Lindsey’s paper for $128 per roll, which covers roughly 60 feet. I’d love to see a small powder room covered in this- it would feel like a little gold jewel box.
