The Californian Collection – Heritage Wallpapers and Fabrics from the West

 

 

The Californian Collection is a new collection of wallpaper and fabric representing the spirit of California Design and heritage. Here, we see our desert diamonds wallpaper in the colorway dust storm, installed in a beautiful, modern living room.

~ The Californian Collection ~

Welcome to New California Design.
It’s about heritage. It’s about time.

 

The Californian Collection is a series of original and unique wallpapers and fabrics, inspired by multi-generational California living, and designed for those who enjoy beautiful design infused with earthiness and authenticity.

 

From the whispering palms of Santa Monica and the iconic sandbox of Palm Springs to the timeless architectural charm of Pasadena, Southern California is a dance of historical grandeur and avant-garde spirit. In this radiant landscape where adobe missions kiss sunlit skies and modernist visions rise, a design narrative is waiting to be told. It’s a visual story rooted in history, self determination and the landscape.  It is with profound joy and anticipation that I introduce Pearl & Maude’s latest collection of unique wallpaper and fabric designs: The Californian Collection.

This new collection of unique wallpapers and fabrics is our ode to the past and a bold stride into the future of what authentic California design can and should be. It’s an invitation to blend the sophistication and whimsy of California’s storied legacy into the very fabric of your home. To infuse interiors with thoughtful reflections, playful patterns, and rich colors that speak of journeys traversed and memories yet to be made.

~ Introducing a New Trellis Wallpaper and Fabric ~

I am excited to present to you our latest wallpaper and fabric colorway:

Arachne in Silver Blue.

 

Arachne showcases a captivating trellis wallpaper and fabric pattern in shades of silver blue and cream. This design is available in both wallpaper and linen fabric options. The intricate pattern evokes the charm of a classic garden room motif, adorned with spiderwebs that transition gracefully from gray to teal. With its blend of sophistication and tradition, “Arachne” offers a contemporary twist to timeless design. The trellis pattern exudes an air of elegance, reminiscent of leisurely strolls through lush gardens on sunny days. Embrace the subtly warm, dewy-blue hue harmonizing with the grace of cream-colored trellis. This pattern weaves narratives of nature’s artistry and beauty.

Digital Printing Revolutionizes Wallpaper Craftsmanship

The Artistry, Customization, and Environmental Responsibility of Digitally Printed Wallpapers

 

The use of digitally printed wallpaper is becoming increasingly popular in the interior design industry. However, an established interior designer recently expressed her reluctance to embrace this modern technology, preferring traditional printing methods instead. As someone who values craftsmanship and traditional art forms, I understand her perspective. Nevertheless, this discussion prompted me to reflect on my own production process as a traditional craftsman and why I ultimately chose digital printing. My answer lies in three distinct characteristics of large-format digital printing: artistry, customization and a sense of environmental responsibility. These factors demonstrate why digitally printed wallpaper has become my preferred choice for producing Pearl & Maude wallpapers.

Decorating with Red and Blue

 

In the realm of interior design, color choices hold the transformative power to create captivating spaces. Red and blue, two hues that stand on opposite ends of the spectrum, possess distinctive qualities that can shape the ambiance of a room. When utilized thoughtfully, these strong hues can create energetic interiors that capture the essence of sophistication.  In this edition, we explore what these colors mean emotionally and how they behave visually. Then, in celebration of July 4th , we’ll share three ways to decorate with red and blue together, uncovering the harmonious contrasts they create and the dynamic energy they bring to our living spaces.

October's Feature - Spooky Home Heritage Culture and Leisure

– Pearl and Maude’s favorite things –

In October’s Feature: spooky home decor for your Halloween night, 120-year-old footage from a flying train, the most gorgeous rotting fruit, Brewery Open Studios are on (!), new products from Pearl & Maude and more…

Don’t tell anyone (hi internet!), but I’m a spiritual soul. I sense that the barrier between “here” and “there” is thinnest in October and I revel in my proximity to the vast field of wisdom and energy which can sometimes feel difficult to tap into. This time of year, I’m comforted and invigorated all at once. Which is good because it’s bustling around here! Also, October has the best parties. (Even this year, albeit much, much smaller.) How will you be celebrating Halloween? May we make some recommendations for October’s home, heritage, culture and leisure?

Fall into Autumn Gracefully – The Feature – September 2020

September's Feature Header

Fall into Autumn gracefully – exactly what and how does one do that? Many cultures celebrate September, with its Autumn Equinox of equal lengths day and night, as a month of balance and meditation. The seasons shift whether you’re ready or not, so why not be ready with a quieting of the mind, a focus on comfort and the creation of personal rituals?

In September’s Feature: make a date to drift aimlessly in a hot tub with a view, see the golden hour in the dusty saturation of our Desert Diamonds wallpaper, harvest jewel-toned pomegranates for these recipes, find optimism in a sunset painting from Teale Hatheway, revel in an haute couture runway show in an ancient temple, hunker down with a terrific Impressionist art mini-series, escape to nowhere in a book of artificial architecture, and stirred, not shaken, please.

Stay warm while adventuring into fall: A wooden hot tub boat floats on a lake.

The Dog Days of Summer – The Feature – August 2020

August's Feature Header

The shadows are becoming *slightly* longer and the dog days of summer are upon us. *pant*  A capricious dance begins during the waning days of Summer: one partner drives you to surrender to the HEAT, whispering in your ear, “Slow down. Sway with me.” The other partner has you by the shoulders, “Grasp the last days of freedom until we go back to school!!! Back to work!” Take this moment to escape into the fleeting vibrance of Summer with us; before we slide straight into Autumn.

In August’s Feature: enjoy fanciful fish drawings of yore, cool off with blue and white patterns, a luxurious (and meta) glamping retreat, the ultimate outdoor lounge chair, art conceived to brighten spirits, a nostalgic American road trip in photographs, good news from our nation’s capital (for real!), and a spicy cocktail to beat the heat.

 

Colorful drawings of fanciful fish are pure summer inspiration
