‘Rose Decay’ began as a quiet little watercolor painting of roses. Initially, Ellie painstakingly painted smooth surfaces, subtle color gradations and soft lines. Once the ‘perfect’ rose painting was complete, she was overcome by an impulse to spill water onto the paper, causing the colors to bleed together. A controlled, precise painting technique gave way to glorious unknown. Now, from a distance, ‘Rose Decay’ wallpaper functions as a sort of distressed texture, in a palette of light to dark pinks, blacks, whites and grays. Up close, there are many beautiful details to be seen, including segments of the original painting that have survived the ‘damage’, which is, of course, beautiful in and of itself.

For further insight into the (thought) process behind the original design, please see Ellie’s full description here.
