Wall to wall

June 21, 2021

Eleni’s playroom was a delight to visit. Her family lived across the road from mine, and she and her two sisters shared a large playroom filled with dolls and puppets and heirloom prams. The walls were handpainted with flowers and kites; the kinds of things that stir a child’s imagination. The walls were my favourite thing about the room. To this day, I dream about handpainted walls. My artist friend, Dasha covered a wall in our living room with colourful Twombly-inspired scribbles and splodges when we first moved in, and I hope she’ll come back one day to paint flowers directly on to the concrete wall in our garden. This wallpaper by Atelier Wandlungen is my inspiration. What a thrill to see daisies and dandelions in our garden all year round.
