I posted recently on the Art of Living site about an Elle Decor feature on the home of the housband and wife team that founded Iksell, a company that produces incredibly beautiful artwork panels out of India. In case you missed looking through their website, I am posting a couple of my favorites here.
I am thinking of digging into the Art Deco theme for one of the spaces in our new studio/office building and find this colorway extremely appealing.
My absolute favorite color, however, is the “dirty French blue” seen here, especially when paired with gold. Of course the designs are strictly protected, but their site is a great resource for color and design inspiration! They do even have a series of panels printed on watercolor paper that are quite reasonably priced and could be incorporated and sold with a coordinating decorative finish on the walls.
We have recently added quite a few trellis designs to the Modello Library and I can see them done beautifully in panel treatments, similar to the one shown above, with paint or embossing techniques.
