I saw a little story is this weekend’s WSJ Magazine about a wonderful English wallpaper artist, Marthe Armitage , who has a cool collaboration with Jo Malone coming out this summer. The best part? Martha is 86. And has only really gained notoriety in the last 10 years! Talk about an inspiration for never giving up on doing the thing you love most, you never know when you wills trike it hot! Her papers are still produced by her and her daughter in her studio in England (and some are now available digitally printed, all through historical wallpaper dealers Hamilton Weston).
I feel like I should have heard of her LONG before now, but I hadn’t! So I wanted to introduce you guys to her in case you too had not gotten wind of her incredible work!
I just love how unique and luscious her prints are!
They look great in modern and traditional settings.

Miles Redd, who designed this space, LOVES her prints.
Here are some of my favorite patterns (okay, it’s almost all of them).
A sneak peek of some of the Jo Malone products- adorable!
Isn’t she just adorable?
