Wallpaper Weekly, no. 45 / Pintura Studio’s “Escorial”

Manufacturer: Pintura Studio (via Studio Four NYC) / Design: Escorial / Colorway: Granny Apple

US Politics head on. photo credit unknown, found here.

In a continued effort to keep our blog and social media politically neutral, here’s a paper inspired by BOTH the Democratic donkey and the Republican elephant for all of our readers. A happy little menagerie from NYC based Pintura Studio for this post-election day Wallpaper Weekly…

Pintura Studios “Escorial – Granny Apple”

While doing research at the NY Public Library, Pintura Studio designers were inspired to design this print based on a 16th century Spanish textile of the animal kingdom.  We love the really “stampy,” hand blocked quality and how our friend Kate, co-owner and founder of Studio Four, used this in her own home (below). Such a chic bar set-up!

Wallpaper Weekly, no. 44 / Abigail Edwards “Seascape”

Manufacturer: Abigail Edwards / Pattern: Seascape / Colorway: Winter

We spied this chic wallpaper last week on one of our favorite daily reads, A Cup of Jo.  Today this graphic has a much deeper resonance with us…

We are still in awe of the devastation brought to the East Coast and especially here in NYC during Hurricane Sandy.  We wait patiently as we hope to restore power and phone cell service to both Suysel’s apartment and our office yet we are incredibly thankful to be safe and sound.  Our deepest sympathies go out to the families of those who lost their lives in this catastrophic storm.

Just a couple of the many striking photos showing the power of Sandy’s water surge.

Wallpaper Weekly, no. 43 / Cole & Sons “Malachite”

Manufacturer: Cole & Sons / Pattern: Malachite / Colorway: Green Black

Cole & Sons “Malachite” wallpaper

Malachite has been hot for some time now, and Nate Berkus’ powder room is no exception.  Just off the pages of the November issue of Architectural Digest, we’re loving this paper in this setting. Another great example of bold paper making a statement in a small space!

PS – Berkus’ new book!

And his recent interview with NYTimes.

Wallpaper Weekly, no. 42 / Trove’s Chroma

Manufacturer: Trove / Pattern: Chroma / Colorway: 001

Trove “Chroma – 001” wallpaper

A crazy scaled, crazy colored paper for this week by Trove, which we first learned about via fave blog Quintessence.  Inspired by science (we definitely see the DNA resemblance), this paper would be a total STATEMENT. Would you dare to put this somewhere?

Check out all the colorways here.

Wallpaper Weekly, no 41 / Brand New Celerie Kemble

Manufacturer: F Schumacher / Pattern: Feather Bloom

Feather Bloom Wallpaper by Celerie Kemble for Schumacher

Get us a white wall stat. How amazing is this new paper by Celerie Kemble for Schumacher?! We’ll be seeing the whole collection and hearing from Celerie during D&D Fall Market in a couple of weeks. For now, this is our favorite new pattern, though you must see them all – it was a tough decision!

Which colorway do you like best?
