Ashley Woodson Bailey Wallpaper

Be still my heart. This wallpaper makes me take a moment of silence to just be grateful for all that is right with the world. In a creative and savvy move, Georgia based artist, Ashley Woodson Bailey has taken her gorgeous floral photography to a whole new level and I couldn't be happier about it...

Yesterday, Ashley launched her online wallpaper shop with six dark and sensuous floral options. In the right space, this wallpaper can make such a powerful impact. 

It's all just so good. Learn more about Ashley's inaugural wallpaper collection, here.

Rifle Paper Wallpaper

Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. of Winter Park, Florida is a favorite artist of mine. Over the years, she's created some incredible stationery as well as a variety of home goods that are hard to resist. So I was elated to see the debut of her wallpaper collection a couple weeks ago...

Anna has collaborated with Hygge & West to create 6 different styles with 26 color options. All showcase her signature style and knack for fantastic color combinations. 

Peonies in yellow is cheery and bright. Anna, "I orginally made this pattern for a Rifle Paper Co. wrapping sheet and I've always thought that it would work great as wallpaper. It was one of the first patterns that we incorporated into the collection." 

Anna, "The pineapple patterns was the last one that we designed and it's turned out to be one of my favorites. I really wanted a more formal pattern that was in a grid rather than organic like the rest of the collection. Pineapples seemed like a fitting subject and we added signature florals around each one." 

The cityscape paper is one of my favorites. Here, Anna has created sketch-style illustrations from around the globe, including NY, Rio, Sydney, Istanbul, London, Paris and Cairo. It's like one big inspiration board...

Karla Pruitt

Karla Pruitt lives in Normaltown, a neighborhood in Athens, Georgia. It is here, inside her lovely home studio, where she plays with color, pattern, light and texture. 

Karla is an accomplished surface designer and painter who gets to create new wallpaper, apparel and pattern designs for various companies. (I've always wanted to create my own wallpaper. A couple years ago, I decided my first wallpaper design would be called, Over Easy for the cute breakfast nook. Not exactly sure what it would look like but I like the name of it :) In any event, I'm a fan of Karla's impressive creativity and ingenuity.

Her wallpaper collection for Hygge & West is quite beautiful. Each creation seems to strike a nice balance between glamour and play. 

Karla's art pattern designs and prints are full of color and joy. Most of her artwork she hand paints - the adorable bees she block-printed. So fun...

This is Karla's first collection of art prints created entirely from her own point of view, as opposed to a directive from a client. She calls it The Winter Series. I love how they are displayed against black. The wallpaper makes a lot of sense in her studio as it has that neutral vibe to let her work shine, yet adds just the right amount of sophisticated glam.

To see all of Karla's impressive portfolio, peruse her pretty site. Then do what I do and imagine your life as a pattern designer- dreaming up new colors and designs on a quiet street inside a charming, sophisticated studio in Normaltown, Georgia.
