"French Room" from Princes & Crows was inspired by a large room overlooking the Jardin du Luxembourg. As a girl, designer Alix Soubiran spent time in her French grandfather's bookish, wallpaper-covered apartment.
Textured gold, white and blue merge to form "Enchanted Gipsy," shown here in designer Soubiran's Los Feliz home.
"Passion Flower" from Sydney Harbour Paint Company is a classic damask modernized by enlarged proportions and crisp colors including French gray, soft gray and soft pink.
This season, bold patterns are all over our favorite garments, and, thanks to our sunny SoCal climate, look great in our homes as well. We're channeling the runway with locally made wallpapers appropriate for any L.A. abode.
We'd love to see Princes & Crows paper in the entranceway of a Hancock Park colonial. These hand-painted papers (from $135 per 27.5-inch-by-4.5-yard roll) are made by accomplished Los Feliz (by way of France) portrait artist Alix Soubiran, whose team creates patterns in colors like powder blue overlaid with gold curlicues or beige stripes--very teatime in Paris.
For a groovy Venice bungalow, we like Kismet papers (from $6.50 per square foot), made by local tile craftswoman Tracey Reinberg. The 1970s color palette is distinctive (custom colors are available, too) and we see these vivid, digitally print papers enlivening a powder room or a living room accent wall.
Finally, for that sophisticated Bel Air manse, we're imagining wall coverings from the Sydney Harbour Paint Company (from $168 per 21-inch-by-11.48-yard rolls). This Australian firm, known for its beautiful low-VOC colors, just opened a Melrose Avenue showroom. Stop by to see samples of elegant work, including a gorgeously gilded 3-D dragonfly pattern.
