I’m not really a textured art kinda gal. The dust, the cat hair, the grossness. However, the moment I laid eyes on these wall hangings from Cold Picnic my heart opened up juuust wide enough to let them squeeze inside.
Lisa Congdon is a known geometric genius (trust me – it’s a thing), and now her artistic talents are available to adorn the walls of your home! Congdon has partnered with Hygge & West to create a line of three wallpaper patterns – Triangles, Ferns, and Bohemian – in a select few color palettes. I already know which wall(s) I’d love to cover!

Mike Diamond was always my favorite Beastie Boy, and now if it’s possible maybe even more so. Because the dude created his own French toile-inspired wallpaper featuring all things Brooklyn (think the Notorious B.I.G., Coney Island, and Hasidic Jews) when he wanted something that didn’t exist for his brownstone. Mike D teamed up with Revolver New York to make Brooklyn Toile happen and then put it on sale for the rest of us through Flavor Paper. (via Design Bureau)
