I recently discovered a wonderful English wallpaper artist - Marthe Armitage, from reading this article about her in the Wall Street journal. Marthe has only recently gained acclaim for her beautiful botanical wallpapers that she still makes by hand in her riverside home & studio in England. And here's the kicker - Marthe is 86 years old! "Success has arrived for me late in life, and no one is more surprised than I am", she says. Talk about inspiration!
Her most vital inspiration? Nature. “My eyes are always open to it.”
I'm in LOVE with her hand-printed wallpapers! You can see her entire collection on the website of historical wallpaper dealers, Hamilton Weston. And there's a cool video as well if you want to see what her design process looks like.
