Wallpaper Weekly, no. 46 / Manuel Canovas “Pagoda”

Manufacturer: Manuel Canovas / Pattern: Pagoda / Colorway: Amethyste

Sometimes a bold pattern like Manuel Canovas’ “Pagoda” is even more stunning as a smaller, unexpected moment rather than covering every wall surface.  We love this entry by designer Ruthie Sommers from the latest Veranda.  Yet, even with stunning black lacquer and a beautiful tiled floor by Ann Sacks, without those fabulous fabric-clad doors we’d be left wanting for more.

Here’s a larger view which gives us a glimpse at how stunning those doors must be in person!

US Politics head on. photo credit unknown, found here.

In a continued effort to keep our blog and social media politically neutral, here’s a paper inspired by BOTH the Democratic donkey and the Republican elephant for all of our readers. A happy little menagerie from NYC based Pintura Studio for this post-election day Wallpaper Weekly…

Pintura Studios “Escorial – Granny Apple”

While doing research at the NY Public Library, Pintura Studio designers were inspired to design this print based on a 16th century Spanish textile of the animal kingdom.  We love the really “stampy,” hand blocked quality and how our friend Kate, co-owner and founder of Studio Four, used this in her own home (below). Such a chic bar set-up!
