Warning: this is not your Grandmother’s wallpaper. Recently a few of these images have been floating around the web, so I followed them back to their source to find an incredible custom wallpaper design studio called Black Crow Studios. They specialize in creating modern, large-scale murals that differ from typical wallpaper in that you don’t see a real repeat. They have a diverse and impressive collection, but I’m especially smitten with their watercolor series. It’s not for every room [or every house], but it’s a refreshingly updated way to make an interior space more dynamic. And yet another example of how digital printing is taking over our world. Rejoice! Check out their site to see the rest of this series and more.
This week I’m pulling inspiration from the photography of a very dear friend of mine, Tiffany Upton. When her day job as a graphic designer isn’t enough, she turns to photography and floral design to satisfy her overflow of creativity. With interests like this it comes as no surprise that her photographs of nature are so gorgeous. I was particularly mesmerized by the set below, some of which I immediately connected with the trend of print-mixing, which has been so prevalent on the runway this season. With the rise of digitally printed textiles I can easily picture the work of Miss Upton printed on silk scarves and flowing chiffon dresses. A fresh update to the floral frock.
