Ink Dwell created a trio of wallpapers for a private commission in the mountains of Northern Utah. In the master bedroom, a pair of Black-billed Magpies build their nest. Monogamous birds, the magpies mate for life. Both the male and female take an active role in building their large, dome-shaped nest with the male gathering sticks for the exterior and the female tending to the interior, forming a mud cup and lining it with grass.
In one of the guest bedrooms, a portrait of a pine cone from a Douglas Fir is painted in gold, representing the value of nature. In a downstairs bathroom, Ink Dwell celebrated the unexpected beauty of lichen–one of the most successful organisms on the planet, found in nearly every terrestrial ecosystem–by creating a pattern based on its microscope structure.
