I have been obsessed with surface patterns for a very long time.
Yes, I had a Laura Ashley phase in middle school too.
I wore her sun dresses and my bedroom was decorated with the Nutmeg Collection.
Wallpaper, drapery, bedding, lampshades, you name it, I had it all.
My room was very coordinated. Tres early eighties.
I looked into making my own line of wallpaper when I graduated from college as a printmaker.
Screen printing was the only option at that time and it still is how most wallpapers are printed.
Even though I found a boutique printer, it was too costly to do a small run of custom wallpapers.
Fast forward twenty years and I haven't let go of the idea.
It has taken a while, but now with so much technology at our fingertips,
with great services and resources like Spoonflower, it is all finally possible.
It's truly a dream come true for me. Take a peek if you have a chance!
