Matching Feathers with Wallpaper

Great post by Fast Company’s CoDesign channel today about designer Claire Rosen’s photo essay, Birds of a Feather. She photographed exotic birds in front of matching wallpaper. Rosen used wallpaper from Waterhouse Wallhangings.

Do you think this wallpaper goes with my feathers?

Slate magazine also ran a story about Rosen’s photo show. Each parrot was matched with a wallpaper not just to reflect its plumage palette, but also to bring out what Rosen thought of as the bird’s personality. Rosen’s claims her feathered subjects practically mugged for the camera. Have to agree with that!

Everybody loves wallpaper!
