I met Kate Watson-Smyth at London Design Week in March 2014 and she wrote this lovely piece on her blog Mad about the house. Read the original here
The contemporary impressionist, Jessica Zoob has launched a range of wallpaper and fabrics based on her paintings. Jessica’s paintings have been recreated into wallpaper and fabric for the Romo Black Edition, one of six design studios run by Romo.
One of Jessica’s works Passion, is a series of six paintings that have been selected, amongst others, for the cushion range. The series reflects the seasons of a relationship: Spring brings a sense of anticipation; Summer is full of energy and colour; Autumn can bring tempestuous storms; while Winter feels crisp and still.
“If you’re lucky,” says Jessica, “Spring will always come round again.”
The fabric and wallcovering collection features six of Zoob’s paintings, with further works translated into a range of cushions. With state of the art digital printing the paintings are recreated on linen, soft cotton velvet and a wide-width, lightweight linen, with care given to capturing the individual brushstrokes and layers of paint.
The wallcovering designs retain the impressive scale of the originals and most of them are printed on two 70 cm wide rolls which fit together creating a design which is 140cm wide.
Last year I wrote a post about garden lighting and Jessica popped up in the comments section to say she had some similar lights in her garden. The picture was so gorgeous I added it to the blog and here it is again.
Frankly who wouldn’t want wallpaper designed by someone whose garden looks like this?
