Lucien Lévy-Dhurmer

Monday, 24 March, 2014

We recently discovered the Algiers-born French Art Nouveau artist Lucien Lévy-Dhurmer and were struck by the beauty of his work . His gorgeous landscapes were inspired by art of the Renaissance and by his travels to Europe, North Africa, and Asia.

Design Sponge is gradually revealing their new office makeover. It’s looking fabulous so far and we love how they used Eskayel’s The Dance in Olive wallpaper to create a gorgeous accent wall within their space. Can’t wait to see what else they do!

Monday, 3 March, 2014

Cracked textures of rock and earth, soft lavenders, smooth quartz and coastal aquas inspire a sense of retreat and relaxation. Bring these tones and textures into your home to add a soothing reminder of the elements of earth and water to your daily rituals.


Urban Zen Den

Wednesday, 26 February, 2014

Best-selling author Karan Salmansohn gets to work in her gorgeous “little urban zen den” decorated with Eskayel for ABC Carpet & Home exclusive furniture. We love the way she mixed and matched our fabrics to achieve this stellar look. She even had ABC custom upholster the Strata chair in Roman Ram and her loveseat is Ripple – pearl (available here at ABC home).
