Friends, I am so excited today to be released three new wallpaper patterns with Chasing Paper. Chasing Paper is different than traditional wallpaper: it’s well-designed removable wallpaper that will stick to nearly any surface! Genius! I hope you will be inspired by the patterns I’ve created and I am sure some of you will think of some very creative ways to use these! Oh, and I’ve also got a discount code for you today too (scroll to the bottom of the post for that).

First up: Little Village. Drawing old architecture in a stylized playful way has always been a beloved part of my repertoire, so creating this pattern was so much fun for me. For the pattern Little Village, I drew a montage of old medieval styled buildings stacked on and behind each other with clean lines and modern, stark colorways. I love the interplay between old and new & traditional and modern in this pattern!

Next up: Poppy! love drawing all-over floral motifs! This pattern is a hand drawn pattern of my favorite flower: the poppy. I grew up in California, so the poppy holds a special place in my heart. There are so many varieties of poppies, and the pattern includes poppies from all over the world. My favorite colorway is the vermillion red, which is the most ubiquitous poppy color.

Finally there is Folk, the boldest pattern of the bunch. For the past ten years I have been really interested in traditional folk pattern and folk art, and much of the imagery in my work reflects that passion. About a year ago, I began drawing patterns in my sketchbook that included traditional folk symbols, like the heart, the hand and fruit shapes. To create this wallpaper pattern, I used many traditional folk motifs and then added some of my own favorite imagery to the mix, like scissors, teacups, trees and a few animals to create this pattern. I love taking traditional imagery and making them modern. I think Folk is a great example of the perfect mix of traditional and modern. Best of all? It comes in four colorways!
