Lisa Congdon for Hygge & West.

This morning I woke up (in Newburgh…with electricity!) to a tweet from my dear friend and co-collaborator, Lisa Congdon, announcing that her new line of wallpaper for Hygge & West is now available for purchase.

I could not be more excited! You already know I adore Lisa and that I love love LOVE her work, but I’m also a fan of Hygge & West. I have their wallpaper (the now-discontinued “Pieces” pattern by Julia Rothman) in my hallway, and I love what Christiana and Aimee have been able to do with their company in the past few years. I have wallpaper all over my house, and to have it be the work of some of my favorite illustrators is pretty awesome.

So how about that Triangle pattern, huh? Lisa sent me some sketches of the pattern while she was working on it, and I’m pretty sure my first response was, “Can you make sure it’s available in all-black so I can put it in my kitchen? And also gold and pink.” So I’m just going to pretend that all of this is for ME and my happiness. And believe me, I’m happy. I’ve been putting off working on my kitchen for…um, about 6 years now, and of all the possible motivators there could be for me to get going already, the prospect of being able to use Lisa’s wallpaper in the project is really all I need. I am so ready to do this.

I’m mostly likely going to go with the all-black option, but the gray/pink and charcoal/gold colorways (side note: I hate the word “colorways”) are super-gorgeous as well. Maybe I can find a spot for them somewhere else? I’m running out of places to use wallpaper!

Because I am who I am and I like what I do, I’m going on and on about the Triangle pattern, but Lisa also has two other beautiful wallpaper designs at Hygge & West, Ferns and Bohemian. To be honest, I love them all so much that they make me want to buy more houses so I can put more wallpaper all over everything. Or at least maybe convince my mother that she should put the Ferns pattern in black in her dining room, because it would be PERFECT there.

Congratulations on the new endeavor, Lisa, and thanks as always to Christiana and Aimee for their vision (and great taste!). The full collection is amazing. I can’t wait to use some of it in my home.

    Lovely! Especially the all black triangles.

    Beyond cool designs! The pink and black triangles are my top pick. It might actually help me get over the fear of applying wallpaper.

    Love this! I got an email in my inbox this morning from Hygge & West, saw the Lisa Congdon triangles, and pinned my little heart out. My favorite is the pink + black.

    Oooh, back to normal and safe in Newburgh. How refreshing! I love the all-black triangles and think it will stupendous in your kitchen.

    Want! Pink and black for me! They are all great though. I want this wallpaper everywhere, but I’m thinking a b/w with touch of pink bath would be rad.

    So glad to hear you woke up okay in Newburgh, Anna, and thanks so much for the kind words! As you know, it is such a treat to collaborate with Lisa! (and, agreed about “colorways” – not even sure it is a real word…).

    damn, it took me a year to take all of the 70’s (mallards! who puts duck wallpaper in their entryway? hello, welcome to my home, I like ducks?) wallpaper off of every wall in our home and now I can not even believe I’m tempted to put some back up but these are amazing! Also, so glad to hear you are safe and dry and have power :) Hope your apt bldg is back to livable asap.

    Pink and black combination makes a room a little bright and colorful.

    oooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, so good! I love the black gold, and the pink one would be so perfect in my girl room. Unfortunatly, I’m a renter, so please renovate your kitchen so I can live through you!!!
