Wallpaper Experiment

A few weeks ago I decided to try a Spoonflower wallpaper! I uploaded this squiggly print, and today I received my sample. It looks pretty cute. I only tried one design, but I guess I would upload a few more. The paper is nice, it's similar to my pre-pasted wallcovering line. Check it out on the Spoonflower site!

A day of presentations at Designers Walk

I really appreciated the opportunity to show my new wallpaper designs to a group of interior designers and decorators. Thank you Tatiana and Dennis from Interior Decor Resources Canada! Although we had technical difficulties - couldn't use the projector- the presenters just went with the flow and weren't bothered by the glitch at all. The first presenter, Mike from In2Walls.com had some interesting effects for the walls and floors. Next was Gayle Smith, who talked about Feng Shui, followed by Marilyn from The Drapery Den, who really knew drapery - although I know nothing about drapery, and the thought of it never really crosses my mind, I found her knowledge and enthusiasm impressive. I presented my new wallpapers after lunch. It went really well and my audience seemed interested. Hopefully, I'll get some pictures from Tatiana. The last presenter was Barbara from Hot Chicks with Style. She was very friendly, professional, naturally well put together and had some good tips on dressing and presenting yourself. After all, I had a good day at Designers Walk!

New Dragonfly Wallpapers

Yesterday I received the first rolls of the new Dragonfly wallpapers. They look gorgeous, especially with the subtle sheen of the pearlized surface. When I showed the samples of these two at the Interior Design Show, somehow, maybe because it was so cold outside, everyone was drawn to the Yellow Dragonflies

The design is exactly the same as the previous versions (the Dragonfly Dusk and Dragonfly Black), but it's scaled up to 24" wide from the original 18". 

Please email me if you'd like a sample of them! They are available now on a print-to-order basis. There is no minimum, so if you only need one roll, that's not a problem. If you like the design, but doesn't work with your colours, I can change them to match your decor!

New Wallpaper

I'm so so excited to show some of my new wallpaper! Recently I switched manufacturers, and the new printer does such an amazing job, that when I received his first samples I was completely stunned by how gorgeous these prints were. The new wallpaper is printed on a wider stock: 24" and 27" depending on the design. The printing process is digital latex printing on an HP printer. The result is stunning. What's more, now I can use Pearlized and Mica papers as well as Matt paper for my designs. I feel like a kid in a candy store!! I have some brand new designs to show: The Seahorse, which I have in three different colour ways, Pink, Blue and Stone, and the Clockwork, which is available in Steel, Gray, Brown and Gray on a Champagne Mica paper. The Pearlized and Mica papers have a slight, subtle sheen, but they're not shiny like a Myler wallpaper would be. I also redid the colours for the Dragonfly wallpaper and it's available on the new Pearlized stock in Yellow and Blue. The Koi Silver got an upgrade, and now it does have a nice shimmer on the Pearlized stock. And the best thing is, that I can actually change the colours if none of these versions suit your home - my printer has no minimums. Depending on your d├ęcor, now you can print these designs in any colour, even get a custom wallpaper designed just for you!

I still have the older stock available (some ready to be shipped). I found a new printer to print on the pre-pasted 18" stock as well, if you prefer the nonwoven, easy to hang aspect. The pre-pasted is also strippable, so it's ideal if you're renting your home, as you can remove the panels in one piece.

Both the new paper stock and the older pre-pasted nonwoven stock are untrimmed. To hang them, you need to overlap the panels, which can be double cut for a perfect seam.

IDS Summary

The Interior Design Show was over a week ago. It was a lot of preparations and a lot of overhead, but it's done!! I'm deeply grateful for Ed's help. As always, he was helping me in every way he could. Thanks Hon! :-) I was also lucky to find a great guy to take all my stuff to the show and help me set the booth up. If anyone needs a "man with a van", who is smart, helpful, CALM and has great rates, let me know! I can highly recommend him.

The Gala Night at the IDS was fun, a lot of colourful personalities, wine, nice dresses and displays. Ed was with me, so I was able to run around a bit and saw half of the show. It was nice to get decked out. Finally, I got to wear my long dress from Melanie Lynne, which I bought years ago! In the background there is "Liz". Most people thought she was great, but a couple of them were freaked out by her, thinking she was a real person. At the end, I think her dress  was a success. It was a ton of work, cutting gluing, stapling and velcroing. It was made of over 350 strips of wallpaper (I used misprinted wallpaper, because it's very strong), which I covered with yarn. I'd never seen so much glue before! My booth neighbours were great. Just to list some of them: Archilume, Galerie-Co, Drake Wood Design, Kyle Megill, Madoc Rocks, Totem Rugs, Tony Koukos and Studio La Beaute.

People loved my new rugs and wallpaper. Stay tuned for images coming soon!

My installation for the IDS

I'm working on an installation for the Interior Design Show in January. I had a mannequin in mind, with a haute couture paper dress that's covered with yarn for rugs. I have a lot of yarn bundles and I thought it would be a nice use for it.
So, Ed's mom Barbara and I went to this place called Recycled Displays to look for a mannequin. We were greeted by an extremely friendly dog named Bear. He would have been happy to show us around, but the owner of the shop sent him back to do paperwork. :-)

Two ladies were happy to guide us through a maze of all kinds of mannequins. I have to say it was pretty creepy. It looked like a place from some horror movie. We managed to get one, and I named her Liz, because one of the other mannequins were from a Liz Claiborn store and I thought the name was great for her too. :-) I have Liz here now, I just have to come up with a dress for her. I'm trying to use Tacky Glue to glue the yarn to the table and to the mannequin's dress, but it's really messy. I think I'll have to look for a clear glue. Last minute, as usual......:-)
