Brooklyn Toile

Mike Diamond of the Beastie Boys decided he wanted a Brooklyn inspired toile wallpaper that would line the walls of his Brooklyn brownstone. The vision was to pay tribute to all things Brooklyn in a way that would appear to be a traditional French Country Toile, but when you step to it the pattern reveals elements and vignettes that make up the truth about Brooklyn. Mike approached Vincent J. Ficarra and Adela Qersaqi of Revolver New York to help execute his vision artistically and Flavor Paper to produce the design as wallpaper.

Brooklyn Toile captures the King’s borough from Coney Island to Hasidic Jews to Notorious B.I.G. to our own Boerum Hill. Daily life in the bk dealing with subways, pigeons, b-boys makin’ the freak freak and stroller moms is all up in there. Like Sam the butcher bringing Alice the meat – go on and get some!!!

This was previously a print on demand item, but demand has won out and Brooklyn Toile is now a readily available EZ Papes Wallpaper, so it is also easy to install, easy to remove and eco-friendly. If you’d still like something more hardcore – say Type II silky canvas textured vinyl? – no problem just hit us up for the made to order goods.

New York New York it’s a hell of a town
The Bronx is up and I’m Brooklyn down

Process

Flavor Paper produces wallpaper by hand screened and digital printing, sometimes both for special projects.

All aspects of production are in-house, so we can maintain our exacting perfectionist standards. We use water based or eco-solvent inks to be as green as possible and only print on the finest materials. Flavor Paper quality is unsurpassed.

All Flavor Paper is produced to order, so you are free to interchange colors and grounds with handscreened wallpaper and can choose scale and colors for digital wallpaper. It’s your world. Get what you want.

Installation Guides

Wallpaper installation is a serious craft and it takes many years of practice and experience to become a master hanger. Flavor Paper prints on some finicky materials with confusing matches and layouts, so we HIGHLY recommend using a professional installer.

You can find a qualified local wallpaper installer through the National Guild of Professional Paperhangers.
