Back in January staff writer Andi Teran posted about the work of Julie Lee, a Los Angeles based artist who created the most amazing food collages. I remember seeing those beautiful pieces filled with beet ends and slices of peach with a garnish of lemon zest laid out in an almost wallpaper-esque pattern. I thought they were so beautiful, and immediately I began to wonder if she’d do a wallpaper for the site?
I wrote her and luckily enough she said she’d make something. So we plotted a bit and decided that she should make a beautiful wallpaper for the first day of Spring, which is today for those of us in the northern hemisphere. It also happens to be my grandma’s birthday, so a big happy birthday to her! It might be difficult to see in the small preview above but her wallpaper features a combination of food stuffs paired with vibrantly colored flowers. You’ll find a bit of asparagus, a peeled snap pea, some lavender, a little broccolini… you get the picture.
Be sure to check back every Wednesday for a new wallpaper!
