I’ve been in complete envy of these walls for months now:
The beautiful wallpaper is designed by artist Karla Davison and can be purchased via Black Crow Studios. I’ve never even sourced out the price, but it just seems totally out of my reach. Wallpaper is always pricey and then add to it the fact that it’s hand-painted and I’m certain this paper is only in my dream paper.
Yesterday I was sourcing fabric for clients and found the perfect item to create the look for less!
I had always known about Batik fabric, but to be honest I had never given it much thought. Yesterday I actually played around with samples and saw how beautiful they actually where. They are a great ethnic style fabric that comes in many shades and patterns and would work in a variety of design styles. If you are getting tired of seeing ikat and suzani patterns everywhere then Batik is your new best friend. I was delighted to find a pattern that looked like a watercolor and immediately thought of my dream wallpaper and new it was a perfect look for lee. Plus it would be great to apply it directly to your walls with starch and be able to remove it when/if you tired of the look with no problems.
You can find Batik fabrics in any fabric store, but my picks are all available at Connecting Threads.
Now I just need to convince Jon that I must do this to some room in my house or get a chic client that thinks it’s as cool as me. Fingers crossed for a client that loves this look, because I have a feeling the mister is going to give me a thumbs down on this one.
