New Orleans Toile: Backstreets

New Orleans Toile: Backstreets is a peek into New Orleans and its citizens incomparable lust for life. The toile is about the city of New Orleans today and the way we live. Our lifestyle is literally an art form as New Orleans exudes decadence, beauty, opulence, and decay in a one of a kind culture filled with character and soul.
Artist and illustrator Alexa Pulitzer grew up in New Orleans where the music, architecture, culture and lifestyle encouraged her creative spirit. From majestic French Quarter architecture to the colorful streets of the Treme and from traditional Jazz Funerals to celebratory Second Lines, Preservation Hall and Mardi Gras Indians; New Orleans’ vibrant culture is unmatched. This toile translates this exotic lifestyle by highlighting these slices unique to our city’s culture.

This collaboration has been something Flavor Paper owner Jon Sherman had been working on for years as much of the company’s joie de vive comes from its New Orleans origins and influence. Having envisioned Alexa’s beautiful illustrations as the foundation of the pattern, they collaborated to make sure key cultural experiences were incorporated and then layered over an aged background that captures the beautiful patina of the city’s history.

Preservation Hall is very personal to both Alexa, who is on the advisory board, and Jon, who was married there, and a portion of the proceeds from sales of New Orleans Toile: Backstreets will be donated to the Preservation Hall Foundation to “Preserve, Perpetuate, and Protect traditional New Orleans Jazz”.

“Preservation Hall is where you’ll find all the greats”

— Louis Armstrong

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 takes many years of practice and experience to become a master hanger. Flavor Paper prints on some finicky materials with matches and layouts that can get confusing so, for the sake of your walls, we highly recommend using a professional installer.

You can find a qualified local wallpaper installer through the Wallcovering Installers Association.
