2-29-16 – almost spring blue


 - from Instagram
Kicking off Leap Year Monday with #twenty2coloroftheweek #almostspringblue Inspired by the quickly changing light, as winter seems to be fading faster than usual in Northwest Connecticut. A swath of our signature Montague #gingkoleaf fabric sets the tone; #handstitched (and ironed) by our oldest daughter into a stylish cape. Layered with one of her many #handmade puppets, along with our new ice blue #metallic #sisalgrasscloth, and a cutting of a #custommural we recently created from an original painting. Our #vintage #RusselWright collection and a @benjaminmoore paint trio always seem to complement our mood. #kidsart #twenty2 #twenty2wallpaper #digitalprints #customwallpaper #dscolor #leapyear

2-18-16 – back in black


 - from Instagram
#twenty2coloroftheweek #backinblack Our kids often ask us what our favorite color is and @kyrahartnett and I both reply “black” which never seems to satisfy them. But, really, there is little better than pure, rich black as exhibited here with our new coal black #paperweave #wallpaper launching this spring, alongside a cutting from a #custom #mural we recently printed featuring one of our original #blackandwhite photos of a #vintage @ford. Our essential office supplies are in keeping with our #allblackeverything vibe – paper clips, scissors, business card holder, ever-present @sharpie in varying weights. The mood is lightened with a #handpainted heart rock from our youngest daughter – I guess she was listening after all when she chose a black rock to paint at school for her Mother’s Day gift to Kyra. #twenty2 #twenty2wallpaper #customwallpaper #digitalprints #custommural #digitalmural #dscolor

#wallpaperwednesday We have long been inspired by the innovative work of Jack Denst, including this print, April, designed in 1963. Jack Denst Designs, founded in 1947, pioneered within the world of #wallpaper, especially during the creative explosion of the 1960’s. He was passionate about exploring “the beauty of art and its effect on our civilization.” In this print, he pushed the limits of screen-printing by choosing to use pure pigments, rather than traditional clay-based inks, which allowed for the lustrous, translucency in this multi-layered, #botanical #design. Amazingly, this effect can easily be created today with our water-based #digital inks, but in the 60’s, this was truly avant-garde. #jackdenst #designrevolutionary #inspiration #thinkbig
