Timeless Wallpaper from Paris

Issue 74 · The Kids Are All Right · May 28, 2013

A collaborative effort of two cousins, Gala and Nicolas, who graduated from ESAG Penninghen Art School and the Van Der Kelen Painting Institute respecitvely, Atelier Bartsch is a design studio that specializes in painted children's rooms. In 2012 the company, named for the duo's grandfather, released their first wallpaper collection, which is designed to look hand stenciled. The results are a "chic and dreamy" collection, that though grounded in tradition, is decidedly modern.
