Our Dorado fabric in Peach looking oh so fine. A perfect textile for summer!
This Mexico City studio, featured recently in the NY Times, is too dreamy. The photographer Graciela Iturbide commissioned her son to build her new studio, giving him only one condition: it be made of brick. Her son followed that direction closely, using four kinds of brick to make the structure. The result of the classic adobe color and the rich wood, lit by huge glass windows, is stunning. Our Dorado fabric would look right at home with this design scheme. We wouldn't mind working in here!
We take our inspiration from all kinds of design and pattern trends, and today we are feeling maximalism! These oversized, colorful patterns show just how much wallpaper can transform a room. Whether or not you would put a pattern this bold in your home, we can all agree these rooms each have their own unique personality.
We are featured in HGTV's June magazine! Spot our Tapestry Wallpaper in Zuni accenting this design savvy Texas home. Adam Talianchich and Ashley Menger build unique and beautiful homes for a living with their company Hatch Works, so it's not surprise that their house is so awesome. We're glad we could be a part of it. Thanks for the love, guys!
Dreaming of Japanese indigo! As summer approaches here at our studio by the beach, we are craving the cool of this ocean blue. This indigo, typically known as "Japan blue," is achieved through a centuries old dying process called Ai-zome. Traditional stitching and dying techniques like shashiko and shibori add beautiful details to this richly colored fabric.
The Quilt Makers of Gee's Bend
Tradition & Innovation
Today we are taking inspiration from the quilts of Gee's Bend. Gee's Bend is a small, rural community in Alabama where African American women have been making quilts since the 1920's. The art of quilt making has been passed down from mothers to daughters– often quilt makers exist in three or four generations of the same family. The geometric shapes, color schemes, and uses of abstraction and improvisation are striking. We are loving these bold colors and patterns.

Wallpaper is not just for walls! A beautiful paper is a great way to make a ceiling pop, and statement ceilings are taking off in 2018. In fact, according to Elle Decor, Pinterest pins for “statement ceilings” were up 310% this year. Here are some rooms that caught our eye...we'd love to see some Cavern papers on your ceilings!
Even though emerald is the birthstone for May, the upcoming month has us thinking all about green! We've got our eye on emerald accented interiors and home goods, reinventing a classic, opulent look with a modern edge in materials like velvet and marble. Another great way to luxe up a room with emerald? Our Triple Gem wallpaper in Jayasaro, featured below.

Textiles of the Wiener Werkstatte
Recently we are feeling inspired by the bold shapes and playful colors of Weiner Werkstatte textiles. The Wiener Werkstatte (Vienna Workshop) was an artistic collective based on an interest in eliminating the gap between fine art and crafts, combining both folk and modern techniques. Founded in 1903 by architect Josef Hoffman and artist Kolomon Moser, and consisting of a design school, studios for established designers, a production workshop and retail outlet, the Wiener Werkstatte's goal was to improve everyday life through excellent design and craftsmanship.
The designers attempted to bring to life a world in which all daily objects were united under a single artistic aesthetic, every element contributing to a harmonious whole. That's an idea we can get behind! We love the creative shapes and unique combination of folk and modern aesthetic.
Threads of the Future
Modernist artist Agnes Pelton (1881-1961) created a prolific collection of paintings during her lifetime, but my personal favorite are her dreamy nature-inspired abstractions.
Feeling inspired by abstract geometric designs as we work on new patterns in the studio!
