We're lucky to have scored this full roll of interior designer Sheila Bridges' Hudson Toile wallpaper in orange (the minimum order is 4 rolls).
Sheila Bridges designed her Hudson Toile Wallpaper as a way of sharing personal stories and visual tropes, poking fun and raising questions. According to the designer:
Each of the six vignettes in my wallpaper, which is hand-printed in the Hudson Valley, lampoons one of the positively quirky, sometimes challenging, yet ever-changing points of view deeply woven into the curious culture and unique environment that has shaped my experience in the historic Hudson River Valley. I am honored to have this wallpaper design in The Brooklyn Museum's wallpaper collection. It’s an ironic, slightly sardonic vision.
In the vignettes, Rip Van Winkle sits drowsily on the highway, while Frederic Edwin Church paints a view of the Hudson River cluttered with smokestacks and cellphone towers. Bridges’s version of “American Gothic” features two male farmers “who may or may not be married,” she explains.
