Roksanda + Fall Colors

August 26th, 2016

Even though we’re truly sad that summer is coming to an end, we are so ready for Fall weather and Fall colors. What better way to welcome changing leaves and warm lattes, than with rich jewel tones with fresh pops of orange and blue. Roksanda’s mix of rich textures bring this color palette to the next level – coordinating perfectly with some of our favorite picks from the showroom.

Abigail Brown Art

August 23rd, 2016

We have become obsessed lately with this gang of handmade critters by the very sweet Abigail Brown out of London. Her collection of work is made up of whimsical creatures in ceremonial garb, meticulously colored flocks of birds, and these adorable animal heads which are available in our online shop, The Market.

These guys perfectly compliment our pattern filled space and add so much lovely character. They’re great for kids’ spaces, but also fun for adult spaces (we’re talking to you Mr. Sloth).

If you decide to adopt only one of these little guys or a whole brood (they make one big happy family), we hope they bring cheer and happiness to every soul who sees them.

Stockholm Lokal

August 17th, 2016

Last August I visited the magical city of Stockholm. It was the perfect summer getaway from 90 plus degree NYC heat, in fact I’ve decided in my perfect imaginary world I would be able to spend every August in Sweden. The food is delicious, weather couldn’t be better and the people are so welcoming. My only worry before I went was that I didn’t know enough about the city, and I was in search of that perfect city guide. Lucky for me my awesome friend and former New Yorker, Erin Bonnier, is now a Stockholm resident and she took fabulous care of me on my adventure.

Now Erin has recently launched a new site that I am so excited to share with all of you. Stockholm Lokal is an edited guide to all things Stockholm. It’s a perfect blend of interesting articles, crazy beautiful photos and lots of great culture/ shopping/ dining tips for anyone thinking of booking a Stockholm adventure!

Summer Cocktails + Wayne Pate

July 25th, 2016

Here at Studio Four, we love a well made cocktail; especially one that captures all the tastes of summer. And what better to go with our dog day tonic, than Wayne Pate‘s cool exotic style.

Palomas: Combine 4 1/2 cups of grapefruit soda, juice from 6 limes, and 1 1/2 cups of silver tequila. Pour over ice filled glass and garnish with a wedge of lemon and/or lime.

Hunan Round Two

July 20th, 2016

One of the things we value most at Studio Four is our relationship with all of our wonderful clients. A lot of what we make and customize is greatly influenced by what you ask for and what you tell us is missing in the market.

Back in 2015 we released a collection of wallpapers with the the crazy fun and talented Amber Lewis of Amber Interiors fame. The patterns have been a big hit over the past year- I even have one installed in my own powder bath. But we kept getting feedback from designers that you’d love to see our Hunan design as a fabric.

So guess what?! We listened and here you have it, Hunan the fabric!

This worked out so brilliantly that we are now working on a fabric version of one of our Wayne Pate wallpapers. So check back in this Fall and we hope to have a couple of new fun surprises for you!

Wallpaper Wednesday + Surfboards

This month, our favorite Surfboards wallpaper was featured in Coastal Living in an amazing beach house designed by the talented (and hilarious) Andrew Howard Interior Design. This has got to be the happiest mudroom we have ever seen.

St. Frank Textiles Wallpaper & Fabrics

May 19th, 2016

The latest thing to drop in the showroom has been this amazing collection of wallpapers and fabrics from our favorite vintage textile purveyors, St. Frank. They have tirelessly sourced vintage and handmade fabrics from around the world to bring us a collection of goods “by the yard” to satisfy all our textile junkie cravings.

The products are made from meticulously scanned and manipulated textiles like woven Kuba pieces from the Congo and dyed Indigo fabric from Mali. The end result is dramatic but inviting wall-coverings and upholstery weight fabrics that bring the world into focus.

Their booth at ICFF showcased their new wallcoverings next to their classic framed treasures and we could have easily walked out of there with the whole collection if our bank accounts allowed it. We cannot wait to see how these will be incorporated into some truly beautiful spaces.

Wayne Pate + Studio Four NYC

May 13th, 2016

Over the last year we have had the absolute pleasure of collaborating with Brooklyn artist, Wayne Pate, on a stunning collection of wallpapers and fabrics. If you aren’t familiar with Wayne’s work then stop now and check him out here … you can thank me later!

wayne small 2

Stacy and I immediately fell in love with Wayne’s style, especially the intricate patterns that can be seen as backgrounds or botanical accents in his paintings. He is a long time admirer of textiles, and his home is one of the most comfortable and lovely places that I have ever been lucky enough to have a work meeting. To set the scene, upon entering I get offered an espresso or glass of rose and then we dive into sorting through his latest paintings (all of which I want to steal to make my own little Wayne Pate gallery at home).

But let’s get on to the juicy stuff (the pictures)! I am beyond thrilled to introduce you all to our new textile and wallpaper babies. Please come visit us in the showroom soon to see these beauties in person. We will also be offering ready made pillows in our online shop soon- yippee!

And last but certainly not least, THANK YOU to wonderful Wayne for making this magic happen!
