Juju Papers

I love the new wallpaper designs and colorways from Juju Papers handmade in Portland by Avery Thatcher. My favorite is the new Sisters of the Sun expressionistic dot pattern in all six combinations. The new Cle Elum print is so sweet too. I had pretty magical experiences in Cle Elum, Washington when I was a kid, so it’s cool to be reminded of those fun days and nights. I love that Avery’s designs are so versatile. They could be used in a kid’s bedroom or just as easily in an elegant dining room or tiny washroom–anywhere really! More HERE.
