Quercus & Co: The Caravan Collection
Apologies if you arrived here looking for pictures of caravans but I do have something lovely... if you are 'into' wallpaper that is.
I recently came across Quercus & Co, a Sydney based printing company launched fairly recently in May 2012 by Adam Jones who taught colour and design at the University of Technology Sydney. The designs are hand painted in watercolour and then printed onto heavyweight matt wallpaper capturing the washy detail and the bleeding edges of the paint.
Inspired by vintage Kilim rugs, when the paper is hung I image it would provide the feeling of the room being wrapped in a blanket. Also, for an added effect the rolls can be 'dip dyed' to give the impression they have been dipped in paint.
I will be using the 'Tapestry' pattern (top image) in a conceptual project that I'm working on at the moment for one of my final year assessments. The starting point for the concept is a 'grid' and I think the pattern fits in perfectly with this.
