make your own wallpaper...

Each year my good friend Leslie (aka Swarm) visits the Design Academy Eindhoven during Dutch Design Week, and while she's there she takes photos of some of her favourite creations/ideas/designs on display and emails them to me. This one came through my inbox the other day with just these words "Make your own wallpaper from wildflowers and a hammer".

Love. It.

Created by design student Elena Pereira, her idea stems from the notion that flowers are used to express emotion as well as the strive for perfection:

"Life withers, nothing ever stays the same, why then should we cultivate perfection? The living space is a reflection of the daily struggle with life's demands."

Here is a little film of her making the wallpaper, and you can visit Elena's website to see more of her work.
