Judit Gueth {new} Wallpaper Designs + Rugs

October 29, 2007

Judit Gueth is a Canadian graphic designer that I discovered while browsing Walnut Wallpaper. Her peacock and koi patterns are strong and depending on the colorway that you select, you can turn them up or down a notch (i.e. the silver koi is more understated than the green). But this talented lady doesn’t stop at wallpaper, she has an entire collection of hand-tufted rugs and she’ll soon roll out decorative pillows to coordinate with her current collections. A girl on the go!

This must be every graphic designers dream, to see their work on walls and floors, to walk into a home and boom! there’s the pattern that took months to develop. What a feeling.

And for the rest of us, these patterns are exciting because they are labor of love created by a person with passion for what they do. I’m thrilled that the world of design has evolved, expanding from buying paper at the local hardware/paint store to the internet. I remember my mother taking me along on her decorating adventures, especially when I was a little girl in the late 70’s. All those trips to hole-in-the-wall shops with those buzzing fluorescent lights overhead and the friendly handyman that knew every tool in the house, but didn’t know much about wallpaper outside of the application process. He thought wallpaper was mostly about covering uneven surfaces so those 20 patterns with mostly raised designs was, what he thought, the best selection in the state. If you wanted more than those bumpy lumpy or extremely shiny papers (he said to steer clear of the the shiny ones though, they show everything), you’d either hire a designer or go to the big city. This is why, after about 200 visits to every store in the state, my mother hired a designer and together, they papered our home into something that looked like Hollywood Regency hooked up with the Solid Gold dancers.

Today, we tap a few keys and order gorgeous paper on the web for our homes, like these papers from Judit Gueth via Walnut Wallpaper. The silver Koi is my favorite print.

    That last rug elicited an audible “wow!” from me. I love that periwinkle color, and the pattern is so cute. Good find!

    Love this post! I’ve stopped by after ages! It is gratifying to see one’s design as wallpaper for sure! Here in India I’m still figuring out ways in which somethinglike this can be done. But you are clearly an inspiration!
    And Judith Gueth is one talented lady!

    I am in love with patterns these days. I think they scare people but now design is full of patterns I hope it will inspire more people to try them.

    I cannot agree more! To see ones work in homes, on books or magazine, or any media must be absolutely thrilling. I often think of those who manage to remain at the top of the field for the best part of their life, how inspirational are those few individuals?
