New Work Alert / Big Flavor

New Work Alert / Big Flavor

Ever since I went on an open studio art walk in Brooklyn a few years back and stumbled upon Flavor Paper‘s showroom, I’ve been plotting how I could get in there again for a photoshoot.

Nevermind that the owner, John Sherman, turned building into a cool lounge-like space that you want to hang out in, but it’s filled with original designs that make wallpaper cool once again. Even Mike D. of the Beastie Boys helped design his own paper and popular NYC venues like the Wythe hotel have outfitted their walls with their designs.

When K.Belo asked me to both style and art direct their editorial shoot and lookbook for their summer 2013 collection called “Havana Nights,” I luckily convinced them that Flavor Paper was the perfect location to shoot in the middle of winter if we weren’t going to fly to Cuba.

If you didn’t catch it on TV this past Sunday, I’m not the only one obsessing over Flavor Paper lately—CBS Sunday Morning did a spotlight on them and wallpaper’s comeback.

I can’t decide which wall I want to paper first.
