Yesterday I discovered a talented young Australian photographer and graphic designer via Russian blog Design Collector and his name is Dallas Maurer.
His graphic design firm, Salad Design, shows lots of neat projects he has worked on that are worth checking out if you have a moment today. But I love his photography and wish he sold it somewhere online, so Dallas if you are reading set up shop because I know tons of people who would love (me) to have access (me) to your work (me) and frame it for (me) the home (me).
Dallas is also on Flickr under the name Mr Sqwiggle.
“Photography has been a long term hobby of mine which I’ve always used as a break from design. I guess it could be described as procrastinating from the work I should be doing but I feel that it also helps in the way I design and of course in creating photos for my work. Playing with Medium format, Expired film and Polaroids all excite me but whenever my wallet starts to look a tad thin I can always fall back onto digital.”
Psst: He has a blog too.

My husband! Wow! Tee just told me that Marichelle from the Heart Handmade blog interviewed him in her “other half” series, a column she writes to highlight the significant others behind the bloggers out there. I love the column idea and am so pleased to see that Thorsten participated. I really loved reading his answers to some of her questions, like how we met, how he supports me with blogging, 5 random things about him, etc.

It’s quirky and cute and I particularly like how they show it installed in this photo above in a most unique, beautiful way – it’s like the borders from the 1980′s going south from the top of the wall to the bottom. I like it! Remember when we dished about wallpaper borders on decor8 last October? I don’t like the curtains, but we’ll focus on the walls in this case. :)
What do you think, would you try a band of wallpaper around the bottom of your room?
