New Zealand-born, UK-based designer Cassandra Ellis always seems to toe the line between design and something more. She described the land around one project as “like walking through a sonnet”. About another space—Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge—she wrote, “The magic is that it isn’t officially interior decorated; it is instead a long and rambling poem revealing someone’s life.” With her touch, rooms can feel, themselves, like verses.
Ellis has as much a way with color as she does with words, so it’s no surprise we are taken by her newest paint collection: the cheerily named Waving & Smiling, just released from her own Atelier Ellis. Take a look.
