Here is the mood board I created last week in preparation for a new wallpaper design.

Of course, as is my natural tendency, I wanted to do a floral ... I also loved the texture and movement that you see in the skirt and the painting above. Simultaneously though, I wanted to tone down the color palette and jump on this craze for vintage imagery that I'm seeing all around me here in the Netherlands. Are you seeing it where you live?

Here is a detail of the resulting design:

I hope it incorporates the vintage-style rose with my own signature style, a calming color palette (perhaps suitable for a child's room) and the suggestions of flowering vines tumbling down a crumbling wall (so Provence!)

My agent Studio van den Broek will be showing this as part of a collection of my wallpaper designs at Indigo Brussels (Sept. 12-13).
