Sorry for the radio silence here at the blog.

The last few weeks have been buzzing behind the scenes, thanks to Amber Lewis at Amber Interiors and Emily Schuman at Cupcakes & Cashmere, who posted this lovely post and this lovely post about the Dark Floral Powder Room Paradise that Emily created in her new house in Los Angeles.

It was right around New Years that we shipped this wallpaper to Amber. It was a total surprise when she and Emily posted on February 25th with these great before and after shots of the renovation.

I really envisioned this wallpaper on an accent wall when I designed it, but I love the total immersion experience you get in this small space. Kudos to these ladies for having such an original vision!

I also want to thank them not only for doing such a beautiful job with the wallpaper but for being so enthusiastic and supportive and for sharing their vision and process.

For an emerging designer, it's just invaluable to have someone give you this kind of exposure and endorsement. So thank you to Amber and Emily, who were also willing to share these images with a major magazine that will be featuring the wallpaper in their May issue. Stay tuned!

In other news, I'm entering my final round of proofs for Dark Floral II, which I'll be releasing in a couple of weeks (I hope!) This one is going to be available in about 4 colorways to start. One of them is a 'sanded fresco', which I'm particularly smitten with.
