Simple Lovely

Saturday, 26 February, 2011

I just discovered the blog Simple Lovely because they included our Gaucho Gold wallpaper in dk. metal in one of their posts. I think this blog is great for inspiration as each post is filled with wonderful color and design inspiration pulling from a wealth of references as you can see:

Thanks for posting about our wallpaper!

Paris Apartment

Saturday, 26 February, 2011

A couple of years ago I was visiting my friend in Paris and we stayed at her families apartment in the Marais. She had lived there while attending art school and it was still a kind of college apartment with younger tenants she knew from school days.
A year or two ago her sister moved into the flat with her husband. Today she sent me pictures of the renovation they undertook and I can’t believe its the same apartment! Below is a before picture taken when I was there in 2008 followed by the pictures of the same apartment today.

Eskayel wallpaper hanging installation pictures

Monday, 21 February, 2011

Here are some pictures we were sent recently from some of our clients. The first is a wall hanging in our Madagascar – Bay wallpaper pattern.

Our wall hangings are made with our wallpaper and are secured on the top and bottom with wooden dowels, a bit like a scroll. They are perfect for renters or those who can’t commit to a whole wall of wallpaper and they come in all of our wallpaper patterns. Thanks for the pictures Chassity!

Here is a beautiful picture of a full room of our Icelandic Mist – Sea Green wallpaper. Thanks to Studio Four NYC for the picture.

We also want to thank these blogs below for their recent posts!

Steve Keister Terra Cotta War

Friday, 18 February, 2011

Today I saw this WONDERFUL Steve Keister Terra Cotta Ware at Artware Editions.
This hand-signed series of wares includes shot glasses, cups, tumblers, vases, and chips and dips bowls all sporting vivid, food-safe glaze over exposed terra cotta.

Keister casts from pre-existing forms culled from packaging detritus or recycled materials. The forms from this new line derive from voids or cavities found in styrofoam cartons and plastic bottles.

Couples Design Counseling

Monday, 14 February, 2011

For Valentines day I wanted to post about the Victoria & Albert museum’s video series “Couples Counseling,” which probes the relationships behind five London design duos. I discovered this project a few months ago at Sight Unseen. This is also how I discovered Pinch and their cute flower sofas.

It is interesting to see how a team can mix life, family and work to build a full and creative life together.

Kin Shop Wallpaper

Thursday, 10 February, 2011

Recently we noticed that people were searching for the origin of this wallpaper online and not finding it. Also a friend of ours mentioned that she had seen a rip off of our wallpaper at Kin Shop! But this is an Eskayel wallpaper and because of its popularity this -Kin Shop wallpaper- is now available to the public!

Madagascar – Moss wallpaper was initially a custom color-way made in conjunction with Studios Go for Top Chef winner Harold Deterle’s new restaurant Kin Shop in New york. Eskayel also designed custom fabric for the restaurant’s banquettes.

I have already posted about this job a few times, but I just want everyone to know the Kin Shop wallpaper is an Eskayel design and is now available here!

I found this site Coveted Things and I thought it was interesting. When thinking about interiors we are always dealing with objects and what is most valued by the owners of these objects. Here are a few of my favorites.
