Fellow Brooklynite Katie Stout is a self-proclaimed “naive pop” artist whose work—including furniture, sculpture, carpets and clothing—explores the joyful celebration of childhood innocence…with refreshingly unexpected twists. With As You Wish, her second collaboration with Flavor Paper, Stout set out to challenge the conventional ideals of wallpaper and its subject, creating an elevated enchanted forest vibe that’s equal parts playful and provocative, and more of a living artwork than stagnant surface. Utilizing rich hues and bold brushstrokes to bring her cheeky creatures and free-spirited florals to life, this painterly mural is made even more majestic with a textured and reflective ombre ground. As the name suggests, As You Wish can be fully customized to suit any application and aesthetic—we’re talking scale, material, you name it. It’s a natural selection for both big and little kids seeking fantastical flavor.
“I wanted to make wallpaper that makes the space within feel like a disorienting and friendly clearing in the woods. Like you stumbled across a different world where the regular rules of what animals and wallpaper patterns are supposed to be don’t apply. The play of scale and limited detail gives the sense that anything could happen - enchanted if you will.”
