Indie wallpaper favorites Flavor Paper just launched two new designs that join their Fempower collection of papers designed “exclusively by women in celebration of women.” The latest designs – Rock Candy and Can-Can – come from Amanda Wachob, famed multidisciplinary artist most known for her innovative tattoos, and Liz Collins, a dynamic multi-media artist we featured in 2020 in our 10 Female Designers Shaping the Future of Design post. If you’re familiar with either artist’s work, you’ll see how it’s a natural translation to wallcoverings. While vastly different, both designs have that visual appeal that will make you take a second, much closer, look.

No doubt, Amanda Wachob’s Rock Candy wallpaper rocks with its ethereal metallic design. Offered in three colorways, Rock Candy is screen-printed with real crystal powders mixed right into the ink and delivered onto the paper with a drips and splatters pattern. The Meteorite design includes Pallasite Meteorite + Rose Quartz, Aura Fluorite has Aquamarine + Fluorite, and Pyrite features Pyrite + Black Tourmaline, each with sprinkles of glitter added for good measure and sparkle. If Rock Candy doesn’t make you feel like you’re walking through the center of a geode, nothing will.
Liz Collins’s Can-Can design offers an energetic pattern resembling billowing fabric in four colorways – Rouge, Argent, Bronzer, and Menthe. The two-dimensional design is based on an actual sculpture Collins created out of a fine silk textile (see below). The idea was to “transform the visual vocabulary of cartography into the abstract language of art” featuring navigation-like sequences of woven and unwoven stripes that hang in loops of fabric. Perfect for someone looking to add some much-needed drama to their bare space. It’s a mural, which means it can be customized to fit even a massive wall. Go big and bold or go home (to your possibly lackluster space 😉
