Writing about style, design and all things that catch my eye!

Perfectly imperfect and casually luxe; these are a few of my favorite things.

Bespoke Wallpaper

Earlier today it dawned on my to look in my own backyard while I was searching sites all across the web for inspiring wallpaper prints. In the blink of an eye, I found Hermitage  an online bespoke* wallpaper company with offerings from all over the world. Founded in 2007 by Seattle's own Jennifer June, Hermitage offers a virtual place to shop for wallpaper created by emerging print artists and graphic designers (Jennifer is a printmaker, too).  I am smitten with the choices she has curated. These small batch wallpapers are works of art waiting to be hand printed when you place your order.

 (of goods, esp. clothing) made to order 

After getting lost in a daydream of magical visuals, I inquired further via email and Jennifer mentioned that she especially loves that Hermitage is an online only shop because "Not only does it allow me to reach a wider audience, but it also gives access to bespoke wallpaper previously limited to those in the trade. I love color and pattern and I am very deliberate about the collections that I include in the shop, hoping to impart the fun and joy that comes with wallpaper." Yes!

I'm sold, how about you? There is a pattern here for just about everyone. Shall we plan to do a roomful, one wall, or just a large panel today (while we're having fun)?
