Makelike: Cactus Love

How about a little more love for the Pacific Northwest today?! Makelike is a graphic design studio specializing in print, illustration, collateral, pattern and surface design. Oh, and a love for creating homewares! They are currently obsessed with cactus (and soon to turn their attention to a new collection focused on national forests) so they have created a collection of pillowcases, wallpaper, posters and tea towels to celebrate their spiky desert dwelling friends.

“The linen tea-towels are 100% European linen and the pillowcases are 100% cotton; both are hand-screened using water-based inks. The limited-edition posters (edition of 50 per colorway) are hand-screened with water-based ink on archival (pH neutral/acid-free) 100% cotton rag paper. There are ?ve colorways of wallpaper: two in Succulent and three in Pointy.”

A big thank you to Liz Calderón for writing in and sharing makelike with decor8!

    It’s funny. I was thinking of buying some wallpaper for my living room but couldn’t decide on the pattern. These are perfect, I live in an area surrounded by mountains and cacti, and these will be in harmony with the view out of my window.

    All of these rooms have such a great vintage vibe! I love them. Of course, it helps that the furniture is vintage as well :)
