We have a thing for custom-made wall paper, that is, wall paper with images we would love to see, rather than the usual flowers and stripes. Although we aren’t crazy about the DIY wallpaper we saw on San Francisco Girl by Bay recently, we LOVE and see huge possibilities in the process. Writes SFGBB Editor Victoria Smith:

…Creative Director Suzanne Shade designed and created it all on her own. crazily she was inspired by an instagram of mine — a shot i took of driftwood at fort funston, and she knew she wanted to create a geometric pattern with it, and include a traditional toile print…

…she pieced together this collage on her computer and then generated large format images printed at san francisco’s blow up lab on their repositionable poly fabric used for commercial display work, which she then used as wallpaper. voilá! 

Ahhh interesting. …“…large format images printed at San Francisco’s Blow Up Lab on their repositionable poly fabric used for commercial display work…”

It’s an alternative to the many custom wall-paper printing companies that have been popping up.

The idea sent us right to Maria Robledo’s Instagram, where she has an ever-growing trove of still-life beauty. Because Instagram’s can’t go high-resolution, they would most likely have to be patterned or collaged somehow.
