I've been straight out all day working on a few projects, so forgive me for going MIA. When I peeked at my inbox a few minutes ago, I was so overjoyed to see an email from the Nama Rococo wallpaper studio because they are one of my top favorite new American paper designers. There are so many patterns out of London and Paris that appeal to me, but with the growing number of American designers stepping up, design in this country is raising eyebrows all over the world. The attention is starting to turn towards our shores because let's face it, when it comes to design, America is only getting hotter.
Nama Rococo is one of those companies that at first glance, you may say, "They must be from Paris or Berlin" because their designs are bold, some may call them over the top, a little edgy, very Euro apartment/Elle Decor UK posh. Only after browsing their website do you discover that Nama Rococo is actually designed in Massachusetts (yeah!). Again, a common misconception that boutique style wallcovering would only come from abroad. Things are a changin' - amazing design is suddenly closer to home.
To learn more about Nama Rococo, visit their website. The above shot shows their French Dot paper in Ooh-La Black featuring "watercolor like" one-of-a-kind hand painting overprinted with black repeat. Love that it's shown on screens vs. on the wall. Perfect solution for apartment dwellers that need mobile focal points. At $180 per sheet (25" x 38"), you can paper one wall or a few screens and viola! you have art and a decadent focal point.
