Bring some color and design to your drab living space with Nama Rococo Wallpaper Studio. This homespun, family-style studio creates a hand-painted and hand-screened wallpaper, that makes it stand out from all the rest.
While visiting the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, founder Karen Combs became inspired by a Chinese scroll painting. She arrived back at her 3,500 square foot studio and locked the doors for 2 months. The result was a 50-foot paper scroll. Liking the singular designs she had been doing, she distilled and repeated them over and over to come up with some pretty bold ways to dress up your space.
Nama Rococo enjoys asking themselves questions like: “What if Bootsy Collins played Versailles?” and “What if Andy Warhol did the windows at Buckingham Palace?” It is a melding of Old World notion of splendor and craftsmanship with New School sensibility.
