Take Cover

hygge & west wallpaper!

See Jane. See Jane draw. See Jane draw all over the walls in permanent marker. See Jane’s mom completely freak out.

Cover it up with artist Emily Marie Cox’s new hand-drawn wallpaper. Cox’s delicate, detailed vignettes make a stylish backdrop for nurseries and playrooms alike.

Three whimsical patterns include bunnies hopping among flowers (Rabbit-tat-tat), an array of quirky circus players (Circus Troupe), and a cheerful city streetscape (Busy Town). The quirky detail in each (cat balloons, two-headed roosters, skyscrapers with roof gardens) make perfect spurs to flights of fancy.

Expertly screen-printed by the wallpaper mavens at Hygge & West, the papers come in seven modern palettes that range from statement to muted. Purchase in rolls to cover a room or, for smaller mishaps, er, projects, by the yard.

Available at Rare Device, 1845 Market Street, between Guerrero and Pearl Streets (415-863-3969); online at hyygeandwestshop.com.
