My first exposure to Casey Gunschel’s stunning textile designs was through an article earlier this year in House Beautiful. It highlighted her Palace Papers herringbone pattern created from the delicate textures of fern fronds. I was absolutely inspired by the subtle surprise of the fern leaves awaiting a closer look at the traditional menswear texture.
When I was choosing the “grey” wall color for my office, I looked again at the Palace Papers line for inspiration. Ms. Gunschel’s intricate depictions of ravens and fish (sea and sky) in the “Nevermore” and “Coy” patterns took my breath away. I couldn’t resist the sophisticated neutrals and aquas as well as the vibrant rhythm of the shapes. It’s easy to see the inspiration Ms. Gunschel took from her Cape Cod roots. Enjoy!
