How to Easily and Reliably Estimate Wallpaper

UPDATE: I’m told this method is not actually easy. Ha! Sorry about that. But it is ACCURATE. So take a deep breath and follow the steps. I like this method. But if it makes your eyes roll back in your head, try this plug and play from York wallpaper.

How much wallpaper do I need? That’s a great question! And it isn’t hard to figure out.

One solid search on the internet for “wallpaper calculator” will turn up a bunch of results for automated engines that will crunch the numbers for you. How handy! But I’ll admit that I don’t trust someone else’s code when I’m trying to figure out how much wallpaper I need for a project. PARTICULARLY when that wallpaper has a repeat pattern, which is most of the time. I really prefer pencil, paper and a calculator.

Viva Las Vegas!

Have you heard the news? Probably not… But let me tell you… it has been a flurry of activity in the studio since I found out Pearl and Maude is headed to Las Vegas Market in a few days. We were a late addition to the Artisanal LA program, but we are super excited to be packing up to head on out!

Pearl and Maude x Matrushka

                    Matrushka x Pearl and Maude x Teale Launch Party Saturday, June 16 | 5-8pm at Matrushka Construction 3822 Sunset Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90026 A week from today, we are launching Pearl and Maude's first capsule apparel collaboration with Matrushka Construction in Silverlake. These summer dresses are breezy, unique, stylish, made entirely in the USA, and tailored on location. Pre-launch sales have me pretty amped up and more fabric is already on its way. :) We will also have a selection of beach towels, outdoor pillows, bags, the last painted umbrella of the season and peach mimosas. Oh! And some new Teale paintings. It's a full-house of creative treats and I hope you will join us...

Christmas Weekend 2017: My Favorite Christmas Music

Happy Holidays from all of us in the studio! (Teale, Maude and Pearl)

Christmas weekend 2017: the Christmas music is on, the trees are trimmed, the gifts are wrapped and my grapefruit mimosa is blissfully within arm’s reach. Packages, paintings and purchases are all where they belong. The garden is cleaned up because winter in Los Angeles looks somewhat like fall to the rest of the country. Despite the break neck pace of the last year, I’m ahead of where I expected to be this season and I am delighted to have some time to write to you.

Hi. My name is Teale, and I am the Pearl and Maude Design Studio. I am a Los Angeles based fine art painter and installation artist who is obsessed with classical design, historic architecture, color and interior design. I’ve been showing and selling my work in museums and galleries for about six years. I love the art world and the seriousness with which we approach our processes and concepts. I am also a firm believer that joy brings joy and the weight of the world is more easily carried by a focus on beauty, wisdom and generosity.
