The Dollhouse Remodel - Part 1: Mini Wall Textile by Janelle of All Roads
We're thrilled to embark on our new, ongoing project- #thedollhouseremodel. We're set to reimagine the traditional dollhouse into our own bohemian family fantasy. We can't wait for you to participate as we invite new makers to join the team. First things first: the textile wall hanging! What's a Bohemian Paradise without one?! There is no one like Janelle Pietrzak from All Roads Creative Workshop and Textile Studio in Los Angeles. She is a homespun Visionary, and the nicest of kinds. When we met her almost a decade ago, we thought she just might be one of the most creative people we had ever met. And to see the evolution of her brand has been awe-inspiring, as she has partnered with everyone from Ace + Jig, Suno, Anthropologie, and more. So we HAD to ask her to spin up one of her iconic wall textiles for our new project, the Dollhouse Remodel!
We first sent Janelle a color story, working back to the wallpaper and curtains in our own Penelope Lou's room. We were hoping for toile-blues and hothouse reds, punched up with some peachy pastels, and knew anything Janelle cooked up would be brilliant. (Her Instagram feed is chalk full of eye candy!) When she sent us this sneak peek, hot off the loom, we were giddy, and knew we needed to expand this story! (Especially after learning that her own mother collected dollhouses, and Janelle was going to weave her a mini piece as well!)
Perfection! About to get some hardware, the mini wall hanging was nearly finished and looking adorable amongst a backdrop of beauties like these.
Signed, sealed, delivered. The most fun of parcels to receive!
