Bold Strokes

Paul Smith fr The Rug Co.

The ombré trend has given way to ~ Brush strokes.  Bold and beautiful or light and airy, this artistic aesthetic is having more than its moment.

Black Crow Studios

Being in a room with hand painted wallpaper from Black Crow Studios is like being in a water color dream ~ truly dreamy.  It conjures up so many images for me.  I would love to use this in a client's home.  It's swoon worthy.

From fashion to interiors, fabric to papers, the look runs the gamut from graphic and modern to vintage or romantic.  It's all in the hand:  heavy or light, precise or freehand.

Everyone (OK, maybe not everyone) will have some kind of painterly pattern in their collection come spring.  Street style extends once again to the home front.  While many textile designers have their signature hand painted looks, seems others are jumping on the band wagon for a season or two.

It's a beautiful infusion of layers, textures, and colors dancing across a canvas of your choosing.  Table top or throw pillows are great ways to bring a little "Picasso" into your casa.  There is a plethora of options in the marketplace.

The impressionistic look easily fits into any scheme, making a big splash or more of a soft whisper.


Rainbow bright or black and white ~ we see an abundance of florals, but the graphic, linear lines add an unexpected twist that really captures and enthralls.

I love the color in these sheers.  They would make incredible window treatments!  Just so happens, I am using the Donghia, barbatos:  It's going to be smashing!

There is simply nothing that doesn't feel special or look hand made with this application.    I love the fact that light plays a part in the look and movement of the pattern in some cases.   The pattern starts dark and grows lighter as the paint is absorbed giving way to shadows and depth.

From a Jackson Pollack-esque splatter look to vibrant, short, purposeful strokes to a long winding freeform application; each feels fresh, modern.
