Welcome to the newly updated Look Walls & Interiors website and blog! It has been a whirlwind since May when Look Walls opened its doors. While we’ve been readying the website and our initial two look books, the wall covering printers have not slowed down. An exciting new project in Las Vegas is in the works. More to come on that!
Today, we’re thrilled to reveal the 2017 Vol. 1 Look Book available to glimpse through online or in hardcover. It’s a stunning set of two books that show off how a wall can be transformed into a piece of art through image and textile. We hope you’ll take a moment to flip through the pages, pause and reflect on the emotions these wall covering designs conjure up. Our job will be complete if you have a reaction to at least one of the images.
This first volume of designs is the culmination of a year of inspiration pulled together to show off how printing digitally can provide so many options when it comes to scale, color and proportion. For instance, we show off a massive flower in the grand scale of the Bloom design, but it can easily be transformed into a stunning standard tile repeat. I love the versatility.
I find inspiration in so many places…we are influenced by our interests, our childhood, and so many other things. Coming from the hospitality scene, I was immediately drawn to Midnight, which I think would look amazing in a restaurant or bar situation. I’m also drawn to geometric designs – particularly mod geometrics. The color options seem endless with geometrics. Bold colors look especially great in the designs we’ve included here. I actually have Hex in my own home and I love it.
The paper texture and finish also affect the way a design resonates, so we decided to split the volume into two books – one is focused on the Standards and the other is purely Grasscloth options. Each book features around 20 designs, which we handpicked to show off some of the most gorgeous images we’ve found. Of course, as we’ve put this book together, I’m already looking ahead and pulling together the next collection to share. I’m thinking watercolors, abstract design, patterns…I can’t wait to share more with you!
