Bead Obsession

Flavor Paper was born in New Orleans and Mardi Gras has always been incredibly inspirational with its shameless sensory overabundance. While we favored the offbeat, bohemian aspects of this two-week celebration, even the least interested people act like children and scream for beads at the parades. Everyone becomes infatuated with beads. They’re in the air, the gutters, the trees, your drink, your hair — EVERYWHERE.

When Jon Sherman was asked to create a bead-themed wallpaper for the NOLA based art pop-up JAMNOLA he blended the intoxicating rhythm of the city with reverence to dot obsessed Yayoi Kusama to create a depth-bending beaded motif that undulates with a sense of infinite goodness — especially when given room to breathe. Bead Obsession is offered in four spot-on colorways for today’s interiors however, we can print it with more showy or soft color combos, special effects, really whatever satisfies your appetite.

“Hands in the air and everybody will sing as they hang on to my rhythm like the beads on my string”

— Jungle Brothers

Estimated Quantity accounts for a design's repeat and match, as well as the wall dimensions you enter. That said, we recommend a professional installer to provide you with exact quantities required for your job and as such Flavor Paper is not liable for incorrect quantities. Our Hand screened wall papers come untrimmed. We print and package in triple rolls [45' x 27"] whenever possible to minimize waste during installation. However, occasionally due to our high quality standards, your order may come packaged as singles, doubles or triples. If you require a triple roll due to the height of your wall, please contact us to confirm this is possible.

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.
