David Hockney 1982 Sun on the Pool, Los Angeles

David Hockney "Sun on the Pool"  1982 

This summer we at Juju Papers have been thinking a lot about David Hockney's series of pool paintings. Not just because we live in Portland, where swimming pools are rarer than palm trees, but because the quality of his pool series has a timely resonance with current design trends. Everything about his paintings fits so well with contemporary style and decor: the lines, the colors, and the content. It got us thinking, is it possible to create David Hockney vibes in decor by integrating Juju Papers wallpaper? The answer is yes!

David Hockney "A Bigger Splash"  1967

Our awesome intern Tess Rubenstein created these collages using a mixture of textures and Juju Paper patterns in order to capture the Hockney mood. Feel free to add these to your mood boards and then try pairing earthy textures and cool tones with the contemporary Juju patterns to create your own magic.
