Watch This Designer Translate Hand Drawings Into Gorgeous Wallpaper

福彩便民中心开机号Every piece of The Vale's collections begins as original art.

In the design world, it's not uncommon for something to start with a drawing. But at a wallpaper and textile company launched last year, founder Melinda Marquardt takes that to an extreme. "Absolutely everything begins with an original artwork," says Marquardt, who worked for textile company Fabricut before going out on her own.

In her London studio, Marquardt produces tons of drawings and paintings, working in everything from charcoal to watercolor ink to achieve a wide range of texture. Then, she scans her work into Photoshop, where she combines different drawings and creates repeats to make motifs for wallpaper and fabric.

"I think the lack of control over how the ink flows is kind of gorgeous," Marquardt says.
