SURFACE PATTERN COLLABORATION WITH BLIK \\ LA

In June 2016, I visited Cuba, visiting Havana, Trinidad, Cienfuegos and Varadero. The rustic charms of this island nation compelled me to capture the old history before it changed, and is the inspiration behind two new patterns for BLIK. This is our seventh surface pattern collaboration with BLIK allowing me to share my designs across the globe around trendy LA and beyond.

Cuba is a magical place full of bright colour around every street corner with snippets of broken tiles, decaying man made surfaces with contrasting patterns. Cuba is a surface designer's dream. I have juxtaposed bold tropical colors, architectural styles like brick and tile work, with geometric line art to create Cuba Wall Panels and Trinidad Wall Panels

CRWYS HOUSE APARTMENTS 

We were delighted to work with CPS Homes on a new 24 room apartment development in Wales for 2016, Crwys House.

The brief was to  design a mix 'n' match wallpaper for a large bespoke feature wall for the entrance of the apartment block (4m by 17m, photos to follow soon). The mix 'n' match feature wall runs the length of all 5 floors within the build. To accompany the feature wall we designed a bespoke geometric wallpaper for each of the flats and our Sparkle Black paper from the KG Basics 16 collection was used to style a backdrop feature for some of the apartments. The overall interior look is very Scandinavian with pops of electric colour. 

We have worked with CPS Homes for the last three years, having decorated their offices and residential spaces, we have developed an excellent working relationship. It was a pleasure designing the wallpaper and working with an fab team on the Crwys House apartment block. Visit more photos here.
