Showcase Houses | Pasadena & San Francisco, Art & Nature, Half Full Launches Wallpaper Collection Inspired by Nature, July 2018
Kellie Menendez and Ondrea Vicklund's mutual passion for art and nature formed the fabric of their friendship in art school and became the foundation for a budding business partnership. With backgrounds in fine art and illustration, wallpaper featuring animals the co-founders admire felt like a natural first step for the artists, who draw or paint every design by hand.
The collection features three wallpaper lines meant to evoke unique natural environments. Wild, depicts animals most commonly found in nature, such as deer, owls, mice, hummingbirds, kingfishers and foxes. Endangered illustrates animals at risk of extinction, including black spider monkeys, black robins and rhinos. And Elements is a more abstract series of nature-inspired textures like feathers, scales, leaves and waves.
The company pays homage to the natural world by supporting conservation efforts that protect the future of the wildlife and wild environments it illustrates.
