Sofia Barao is a mixed media artist and accessories designer living near Paris. She has an etsy store where she recently started offering vintage French fashion and ad prints along with wallpaper scrap packs (great for mini projects… You could design your own closet door in the spirit of Ms. Posie!). These prints need to be framed and displayed, don’t you think? So pretty!
I can’t recall if I’ve blogged about Jane Foster before, but I just love her work. Jane creates 50’s and 60’s Scandinavian inspired screen prints and ceramics in her Brighton, England studio. I adore her limited edition prints below, aren’t they great? Click here to view more from Jane Foster.
I’m insanely attracted to the work of Steven Harrington. I would own everything he creates if I could. I especially want the peacock screenprint below, but I’m afraid he has sold out. The man just oozes with talent, I imagine he walks around with this amazing aura of positivity and bursting with energy. Look at these illustrations, and the colors, this is serious talent, people! I know I’m gushing, but sheesh… I’m smitten. These are the times when I wish an oxygen mask would pop down from the ceiling and save me. Deep breathe, Holly.

Textiles and wallpaper always make me happy. These are from Sandberg in Sweden. I love these images, and happy that wallpaper is still very much in vogue here in the states as well as in other parts of the world. It’s wonderful to see more and more pretty papers, and less fear of wallpaper overall. Prints and patterns are SO exciting!
