Nick Cope founder and owner of Green Painting has collaborated with his partner Rachel Mosler, Fine Artist and Art Therapist to create an artisanal wallpaper from New York. The line consists of two collections, the first in a neutral pallet taking inspiration from Wabi Sabi (Wabi) evoking  ancient landscapes of the far east and the second in a darker pallet which was inspired by NASA images of the Moon (Lunaris) and lunar landscapes.

The Calico method embodies years of research in the various disciplines in paper marbling, which have spanned the globe. The arts of Suminagashi and Ebru, emanating from Japan and Turkey respectively centuries ago are both evident in our collection. However, it is their expansion of these practices that makes Calico Wallpapers truly unique. By drawing from each of these forms the duo have created something entirely different.

The wallpaper is special in the fact that motif itself has no repeating pattern, its essentially a mural that is made to fit the desired wall. Be sure to checkout Calico, take a look at this wonderful video on Cool Hunting that gives a behind the scene look at the process.

Wabi is a stunning in any light.
