DwellStudio

 

York Wallcoverings is pleased to announce their most recent collaboration with modern mix masters DwellStudio.
Smart, playful and au courant, this sophisticated medley of animal, vegetable, and mineral print offerings are much more than wallpaper; they personify the effortless flair of individual style.

Esher

Pattern Esher is at play in the field of physics; alive with dimensionality. This is mad science at its stylish finest. Balanced by subtle monochromatic tonality, it creates the look of a texture; or is it a geometric pattern? What do you see, besides beauty?

 

Oaxaca

Sophisticated and sublimely unique, Otomi-inspired folk pattern Oaxaca is reimagined in lofty silhouette. Created in our exclusive Sculpted Surface process, which mimics the look of an artisanal hand painting, it honors tradition by its reinvention for modern spaces.

 

Medici Marble

The architecture of classical design is inspired by the cool sophistication inherent in marble. Pattern Medici Marble incorporates the elevated status of this iconic sculptural cornerstone and redefines it as contemporary lux in unexpected color combined with matte metallic.

 

Plume

With a train of tail feathers draped across colorfully blooming branches, this bold flock of hens and peacocks acts as an anchor to a saturated ground of marvelously fresh color. Pattern Plume does what great design should; reinvent and reinterpret fearlessly.

DwellStudio design is an unexpected blend of style and personality which represents the modern signature of a life well lived. Find them at retailers across the country. www.yorkwall.com

Pop-Up Shop Coming to York

When approached to create a pop-up shop for the former Woolworth’s store in downtown York, PA, my fellow graphic designer Jeremy and I couldn’t resist.

Upon accepting the design challenge, we started sketching and developed a framework for our display, which we began calling, “creative spaces.”  Each of our three windows would portray the space of a creative person… that of a writer, a fashion designer, and a musician.

We wanted all of the spaces to feel personal, and lived-in, so we designed each in a different color pallet. The writer’s window would be a mod office, set in warm tones of red, yellow and orange, with splashes of teal and aqua. The fashion designer’s space would encompass two rooms; first the bedroom will emerge as an urban inspired paradise with neutrals and metallic accents. The designer’s adjoining closet will be full of animal prints and naturally inspired elements. Lastly, the musician’s living room will be draped in cool blues, greens and purples with accents of gold and natural materials.

We reused and repurposed a lot of materials for the window displays including this retro bike which we painted purple. The original Woolworth's sign still hangs above the main entrance. Jeremy getting ready to spray paint.

With a tribe of helpers, we were able to load, unload, assemble and place 75% of the window displays in just one day!  Our pop up shop window exhibit will be revealed today, Friday, November 6th, 2015, as part of downtown York’s First Friday.  We are excited for everyone to see the vigettes once we rip the brown craft paper from the windows revealing these creative spaces… stay tuned to see pictures of our display once it’s complete in just a few hours!
