This Chicago coach house rents for $300/night all summer on a timeshare website. It’s owner, a globally inspired, former retail shop owner has transformed every room into a funky creation full of color and texture. Her fabric collection from all over the world was the inspiration for this custom wallpaper. We wanted to make a strong impact in a small space by using 5 different patterns, all in a blue colorway. We had to create repeating patterns for each of these steps, since the fabrics were just snippets of pattern, not print ready files.
Once the images were set up for print, we used a type of vinyl for the application. Common uses for this material are prints that adhere to the sidewalk for advertising, or the floor of the bus or train. It’s meant to walk on, and we wanted something that would withstand the test of time, since it may get scuffed quite a bit from long-term use. Our manufacturers helped us select this material for its durability.
We really love seeing these patterns make an impact in the space leading up to the guest bedrooms. It’s such a fun and welcoming environment th Bring the World Home.
