Dynasty Fabric in House Beautiful

Wednesday, 29 June, 2011

We’re so excited to have our Dynasty fabric featured in this month’s issue of House Beautiful. I absolutely love the cover picture. If only I had a kitchen with a garden view like that, New York City living would be so much easier!

Got to Get Away

Monday, 27 June, 2011

I have always loved hotel decor design and I’m totally addicted to which is where I found the Desa Seni in Bali (pictured above). Websites that feature hotels around the world serve as a great way to explore these exotic places. I was so excited when style files, one of my favorite design blogs, started a new website called travel files , which is planning to showcase designs from hotels around the wold. There isn’t much up yet but check it out here!

More Eskayel in the Press

Monday, 20 June, 2011

We are so excited and thankful to be on Remodelista for the first time, they featured our new linen baskets. But I should correct, that even though I did complete my BFA at Central St. Martin’s in London, I am not a Brit, I am from California originally and have been in Brooklyn almost 9 years. Below is a really cute post from the Martha Stewart website giving a glimpse into their editor Yvette’s workspace. I love the colors in the photo on her computer screen.

Houzz did an incredible feature on our products and said so many nice things about each pattern. Also we were in cluded in the Abyss trend board from Scarlett Opus. Lastly, thank-you always to Apartment Therapy and CasaSugar Casa Sugar for your continued coverage of Eskayel! Apartment Therapy just did an article on the top 10 Brooklyn wallpaper designers and we would love to add Grow House Grow, Jill Malek, and Soy Este to the list.

Polar Pedigree and Pensive Princess Part 2

Thursday, 16 June, 2011

In one of my previous posts I wrote to you about a client who installed Eskayel’s Polar Pedigree wallpaper in Grayscale and combined it with my painting Pensive Princess. We went to visit their apartment and were so excited to see it all put together.

I love this painting they have above. Also, I especially adored how they decorated the corridor connecting their two apartments featuring Cole & Son’s metallic wallpaper.

The reason we went to their apartment was because they wanted to install another wallpaper pattern in the bedroom. When they showed us their color inspiration for the room design, we were amazed by how closely the color palette matched our Gaucho Gold wallpaper in dark metal, which is the pattern they chose.

Design Week Favorites

Monday, 13 June, 2011

I know its a bit late but here are my favorite designs that I spotted during Design Week and ICFF. Some of them are new discoveries and a few are old friends whose work I’ve always loved.

Above and below is Escape Landscape Rug Designs founded by Anita Bell from the UK. I love how she translates her native landscape into beautiful abstract rug designs. Best of all she hand knots all the rugs herself. I met her at ICFF and she was amazingly sweet and talented.

At the Sight Unseen Pop-Up Shop there was a lot of cool stuff by designers whose information I did not get.

But my favorite thing was these rope bracelets by furniture and accessory designer Tanya Aguiniga. Nick bought me the red and white one below and I think it makes the perfect summer accessory and the sweetest “yay! ICFF is over” gift.

Also at the Pop-Up Shop was a new Eskayel limited edition scarf. I used a new unreleased pattern and after it was printed on silk I hand dyed the scarf. Hopefully we will have these available soon on our website.

And I really loved the new side tables from Uhuru and lighting by the insanely talented Lindsey Adelman both pictured below and displayed in the great American design building.

Next I wanted to show you the recent works of my friend and fellow wallpaper designer Aimee Wilder. Her new collection is super cute and filled with fun, innovative motifs.

Lastly, here are some works by artist Richard Saja as displayed at The Future Perfect. I’ve loved and admired his decorative embroidery since the moment we met.

During Design Week and ICFF we were lucky to receive a ton of press. Some of the highlights were a full page spread in Interior Design’s Market Tabloid, a wonderful 3 Rings article on the production of our new baskets, and awesome booth coverage by Apartment Therapy and other design blogs. We want to thank everyone who covered Eskayel, we really appreciate it!
