Interiors by Scout Designs

This week’s wallpaper weekly, isn’t quite wallpaper but a genius idea by our dear and most talented friends Callie and Nicki of Scout Designs as seen in the latest issue of LonnyMag.   Using sheets of marbleized paper, they covered the walls of Nicki’s bathroom and created pure magic.

DIY here!

S, M, L, XL: Vermicular…Worms!

Vermicular! Worms!! A little history…the Ancient Roman term “vermiculatus” described a pattern “inlaid as if in the tracks of worms,” which has been used in architecture and design for centuries.  Originally carved into stone as surface ornament, the pattern was adopted into global textile design, seen in both Western patterns as well as most notably in the background of Indian palampores. Centuries later, we’re still fans of this decorative motif!
