yes please – shibori wallpaper

Shibori Wallpaper - Aleutian Stripe

A design trend that I can’t get enough of, Shibori continues to please, and for good reason. The deep, saturated, evocative patterns and hues draw you in, melding modern, geometric, and abstract with a global, painterly feel. Shibori is a form of Japanese tie dying in which there are an infinite number of ways to twist, bind, and tie the fabric to achieve patterns. What is interesting about Shibori, is that it is not only the desired pattern that dictates the technique used, but the type of fabric. The Shibori techniques work in harmony with the characteristics of the cloth used. I appreciate that.

Shibori Wallpaper - Aleutian Star

Pepa Martin and Karen Davis are the Australian design duo behind Shibori, a boutique textile agency which has pushed the boundaries of this ancient Japanese craft, modernizing the shibori techniques on new materials. Shibori Wallpaper is an example. So striking, I love them all. The wallcoverings are available both at retail and to-the-trade. In the U.S. they are available at Studio Four NYC. See all the colors and patterns here.

makin’ it – this room, that leopard wallcovering

makin' it - this room, that leopard wallcovering

I would have said the chair, but then that leopard wallcovering really makes a statement. Especially when you see the rest of the room, in the house that belonged to Jean Cocteau. A feast for the eyes and mind.

When I was a little girl I was an avid “painter”. I used to love putting globs of different colored paints on paper and then folding it and squishing it around, opening it to reveal the surreal, saturated swirls of color. It’s no surprise then, that the inkblot wallcoverings from Timourous Beasties blow my mind. Perhaps that is the point as they are inspired by the infamous Rorschach inkblots. Truly stunning, truly a statement maker.
