When you first meet Alexis, it’s almost impossible not to fall in love with her. She’s quick to smile and laugh, both of which are infectious. Her bubbly, feel good energy is non-stop, her jokes are hilarious, and she’s super personable. She works hard and plays hard, is a total go-getter, and happens to be an excellent host as well. I arrived at her apartment and was greeted with a huge hug, smiles, and gluten-free dairy-free cupcakes. It was such a nice surprise, to say the least. We spent an... Read The Rest →

We’re also so happy that our new wallpaper designs are officially out in the world. There will be an additional pattern added shortly – plus a brand new colorway of our favorite Flora. Design Week...

Julia Bainbridge is one heck of a talented lady. She’s an editor at Bon Appetit with a keen talent for discovering and discussing all things tasty, is notorious for her excellent dinner parties, her sense of humor, and just so happens to be a lovely person as well. Her aesthetic sense is one I admire. She’s unafraid to mix patterns, loves color, and is always put together with polish – exuding a kind of understated yet colorful glamour. In my mind, JVB is always walking down a street at golden... Read The Rest →

Recently we’ve been interested in extending our patterns and vision to other objects and I’m happy to share with you today that we’ve collaborated with DODOcase – the San Francisco based premiere maker of book-bound and hand-crafted cases for iPad’s and Tablets – to make three Flat Vernacular patterns available in the Build-A-DODOcase customizer. DODOcase produces in the United States, and are reviving manufacturing using an old artisanal method of making something contemporary, which is right in line with Flat Vernacular’s focus and method of making. A partnership between... Read The Rest →
I think I need to get this tattooed on the inside of my eyelids: UPDATE THE FV BLOG, PAYTON. In lieu of regular updates, I hope you’ve been enjoying our Instagram stream (click here to follow!) which is constantly being updated. February was a hectic month: I spent two weeks as an artist in residence at the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada. My sticker wallpaper was part of an exhibition called “Secret Stash: Accumulation, Hoarding, and the Love of Stuff” curated by Kirsty Robertson. It was an incredible... Read The Rest →
So much is in store for 2013. We can’t wait to share it all with you. Snippets of the first two weeks of 2013 are below. Hallway in a custom colorway of Feather Get Together. Our ugly linoleum floor may be forever stained with New Years confetti. I love the way it looks. Old Friend MPNails was in town and treated me to a manicure. Precipice in a custom grey color. Precipice in Vinson Massif. Brian stitching on silk for a project. New Year, New You, New York.
