As you can very well see from the photos below, Flavor Paper wallpaper is drab, dull and devoid of any kind of color. You might as you leave the walls white.
In reality, when I mentioned “eye candy” in an earlier post about the BKLYN DESIGNS, I was specifically referring to the new work of New Orleans-based (but relocating very soon to Cobble Hill, Brooklyn) wallcoverings firm, Flavor Paper. The company makes handscreened wallpaper that mesmerizes and delights. It might be too much for some — it’s popular with hoteliers, magazine editors, rock stars and nightclub owners — but I adore it … and I don’t even particularly like wallcoverings. Quite simply, it pops.
So what’s so eco about Flavor Paper? The company uses old school printing methods, meaning no mass production with energy-guzzling machines and excessive waste; it’s made right here in the U S of A. Most importantly, unlike many mass-produced wallpapers, Flavor Paper wallpaper is printed with water-based inks. Water-based inks aren't composted of petroleum-based solvents and don't pollute the air or water systems during the production process.
