Guest Post: Flat Vernacular Pattern Pop-Up

by admin on July 29, 2013

I invited Taylor Combs, Assistant Digital Editor for, to share this post from a wallpaper party she recently attended. 


Through my work with Martha Stewart’s American Made, I’ve had the privilege to meet and work with some amazing makers, crafters, and artists from around the country. I first met wallpaper designer Katie Deedy of Grow House Grow when she entered the 2012 American Made Audience Choice Awards. Katie recently invited me to a very colorful showcase of the work of Brooklyn-based wallpaper creators, including some of her own work.

The party was a celebration of pattern and color, hosted by Payton and Brian of Flat Vernacular. This design duo specializes in hand-drawn, hand-printed wallpapers, all made in the U.S. Now through Labor Day, they’re showing off their goods at Pier 17 at South Street Seaport in Manhattan. Check out a few photos from the pop-up store below.


I’d have never thought false eyelashes could make such beautiful patterns.


This modern ikat design was made from unsharpened pencils.


Luckily, I had a few quarters for one of these cute Flat Vernacular stickers.
