The original inspiration for a wallpaper collection started as Viñas began to think about building materials, how the textures could be simplified and made more graphic, and the juxtaposition of applying those materials to interior walls. “I simply love the idea of taking a wall texture and creating a tongue-in-cheek variation of it,” said Viñas.
Mock Rock was inspired by a natural rock wall fireplace, at Viñas’ own home in Pennsylvania, where she had the rocks painted white, making it more about the texture and less about the natural stone. Sitting in front of the fire one winter, she extracted the shapes and created a sketch for the design. Working with husband Jaime Viñas, Ghislaine manipulated the images to create the final wallpaper design.
