Hygge Land, North Carolina

November 01, 2016

 

Aimee was in North Carolina the other weekend with her family, so took the opportunity to do some shopping at Chet Miller, aka the most hygge-filled place in North Carolina! The shop is owned by the lovely Jennings Brody, her second project following the success of Parker and Otis!

SO. MUCH. PRETTY. WALLPAPER.

And all kinds of other good stuff! Including our wallpaper, did I mention that?

We are big fans of these candles, of course!

Meet their new shop dog, sweet baby puggy pup, Dotty! If you look carefully, it looks like Aimee bought a pack of Duke playing cards. I guess she's preparing to play solitaire? Ha. That's my joke about how no one in her immediate family likes Duke :)

It's a family affair too. You can see her daughter, Miller, seems to enjoy hanging out there. Who wouldn't?

 

Chet Miller is in about to open a kids store next door called Tiny, and it's shaping up for some seriously hygge-filled fun!

We just love how they incorporated our Circus pattern into the mix. And that is Jennings's husband, Jonathan helping out. He also built all the fixtures in the stores. So good!

And now we'll leave you with this amazing ham. Go HAM.

We do it for the dogs!

October 28, 2016

If you follow our Instagram accounts, it's probably pretty obvious that WE LOVE DOGS.

We just got these sweet images from Copper's Dream Rescue, one of the two animal rescues to whom we donate all of the proceeds from our Dog Park wallpaper sales.

It really makes us so very happy to be able to help and we greatly appreciate all our Dog Park customers. So far, we've been able to donate over $10,000 dollars to help dogs like these in need!

Hygge & West Book!

October 18, 2016

 

We're making a book!!!

Not since our senior year yearbook have we worked on a project anything like this together. Will the cover glow in the dark this time? Unlikely. Was having a glowing cover to celebrate Los Alamos's 50th year anniversary a catchy idea? We still think so.

We did our first two photo shoots last week - so much fun! It's truly so exciting to see images come together through the power of a professional photographer. And not just any photographer, because we are lucky enough to be working with our friend who has the most fabulous eye, James Carriere.

Will there be dogs? Many.

Will there be wallpaper? Absolutely.

It will be published by Chronicle Books in 2018, so now basically we can't wait to get even older. More to come!

Wallpaper Two Ways: Karla Quisenberry

October 14, 2016

 

Karla Quisenberry, known online simply as Karla Quiz, has one of those Instagram accounts that you could lose hours in. Full of dreamy colors, inspiring design, and snippets of her life as a mother (with two daughters, France Fox and Fair James, and a new puppy, Lola Banana), wife, and business owner, this busy lady has a penchant for pattern and an eye for beauty. Her company, James Fox Co., combines both with functional yet comfy gowns made specially for new mamas and mamas-to-be. Karla's easy style, adorable littles, and love of great design has made her an Instagram tastemaker and a perfect choice for our newest Wallpaper Two Ways.

Hygge & West: What paper did you choose and why? Who is the person you imagine using each of the two spaces you've created here?

Karla Quisenberry: Carved Ogee is bold and playful. Whether you're a young woman pursuing NYC dreams, or a mama decorating your daughter's bedroom, it's the perfect canvas to play with.

H&W: We love that you've used some of our H&W favorites in your designs -Diamante in a bedroom and Nana in a bathroom. Can you tell us why you chose those patterns and colorways and what you think they add to the spaces they're in?

KQ: Diamante is a perfect combination of my two favorite qualities in my girls. It is both soft and bold, and the backdrop to my daughters' shared room. I picked the Turquoise color to help balance out a lot of the pink going on. We aren't afraid of blue, black, or anything traditionally seen as ‘boyish.' I just love this pattern! It’s girly, but with an unexpected twist.

Nana in Pink is just the pop that the bathroom needed. It evokes so much passion! Having it in a smaller space transforms the bathroom into something fun, refreshing, and hard to ignore... just like my girls!

H&W: Your business, James Fox Co., creates beautiful patterned gowns for new moms to wear in those early days of motherhood. In a sense, you're bringing hygge (the Danish word for 'cozy') to childbirth! What is it about pattern that you find beautiful and comforting?

KQ: I believe pattern and color in design should always somehow reflect the season of life I find myself in. The soft structure of the gown patterns comfort, while the colors of the fabric soothe and center. The comfort and beauty that is translated through these elements speak to the pure fragility and strength found in both new mother and baby.

H&W: Your girls are adorable and we love following their adventures on Instagram. How does having children influence the way you use pattern in your life, whether it's via home decor, your wardrobe, children's products, etc.?

KQ: Thank you! I've learned to loosen up and play! We experiment in our home a lot with color, texture, and pattern. I don't think that when you become a parent you need to sacrifice style in your home just because now you have kids around. I have learned that this ‘trial and error’ approach to design is the best way for me to bring style into my child-friendly space. You just have to figure out what works best for you and your family. :)

H&W: Comfort and coziness play a big role in your business, but how do you add hygge to your personal life?

KQ: Once it begins to get dark out, I love to ‘light’ all of the candles in our fireplace. *Disclaimer: They are electric, but man, do I love the cozy vibe they bring into our home. It's in that moment that I take a deep breath, and thank God for another day. More and more I am finding that for me, it's the little things that make me feel at home...
