Sparkk | Wallpaper & Textiles

Over the many years of traveling around the world scouring flea markets and shops for vintage oddities and curiosities, I have accumulated an object library that I am constantly referencing for my designs & projects. Delving into this library I have created my collection of wallpaper & textile prints NOSTALGIA with Sparkk. Although NOSTALGIA is not instantly recognisable as being from a specific time, era or place, the patterns & colours are a nod to the past, to trigger fond memories of a person dear to you, a place you loved or a period of time in your life.

NOSTALGIA is steeped in my own memories of spending a decade living in New York City. A time of dreaming up magical sets for photoshoots for magazines, ads & catalogues. The collection names are the streets I lived on and my favourite walk home to Tribeca & later Chinatown, through Soho with its cobbled roads and cast iron front buildings, fire escapes with soaring windows. A walk back in time in itself. For me a time of “anything can happen” and a place to create a sanctuary of your own to call home amongst the concrete jungle of NYC with its endless energy and magnetic chaos.

DUANE | Reminiscent of Hawaiian prints of the 60s, a pattern to put a smile on any room.

HOWARD | A contemporary take on the classic rose motif, cues taken from traditional screen printing and the proportions embraced by Dorothy Draper.

BAXTER | Inspired by the vintage wallpaper I used in my Chinatown loft, a wall garden in the concrete jungle of New York City.

LAFAYETTE | Inspired by my many visits to the haberdashers and ateliers of intricate passementerie.

FRANKLIN | A classic horizontal wide stripe with the beauty of age celebrated in all its watermarks and palimpsest.

TRADEWINDS | An ode to my love of cartography and seafaring adventures.

WALKER | Classic stripes that work anywhere, anytime with any style.

SPRING | A marriage of stripes and florals, this design is all charm.
