Victoria Larson's Fleur de Sel wallpaper, inspired by her textile designs.

New wallpaper collections debut

Design Inspiration Two Maryland artisans have added the craft of wallpaper design to their portfolios. Decorative painter Stacey Tranter and textile designer Victoria Larson both bring special skills and perspectives to their work.

“It was a natural progression for me,” says Tranter. “We used our faux-finishing techniques and applied them to paper instead.” Tranter’s handcrafted wallpapers rely on stencils and texturing. Her collection includes French linen- and velvet-textured papers and Gold Thistle, pictured in gold leaf.

Larson’s collection was inspired by her textile designs. Fleur de Sel is “a modern take on damask,” Larson says. “It’s hand screen-printed by Peter Fasano, a master of the process. I wanted the depth of that technique.” Three other patterns—two on grasscloth and one on paper—will be digitally printed. staceytranter.com; victoria-larson.com
