Gifted designer Lulu deKwiatkowski offers a rich and colorful showcase of inspiration and imagination found through life, love, travel, and finding individuality.
Lulu deKwiatkowski was brought up in the 1970s in a fantasy world of chintz bedroom walls, green flowered curtains, and bright Chinese wallpaper. After obtaining a degree in fine arts and interior design deKwiatkowski moved to Paris for five years, studying trompe l'oeil, she then travelled through India, Morocco, Italy, and Peru, gathering life experience and design inspiration. Now a successful designer of textiles and wallpaper, deKwiatkowski merges the old world artistry and craftsmanship found during her travels with youthful and whimsical modern design.
'The Notebook' will encapsulate a life of colour and inspiration through photos, collage, design samples, and whimsical memoir. From deKwiatkowski's travels through the earthy tones of Parisian landscapes to her discovery of geometric patterns in Morocco to the whimsical pigments of India, this gorgeous book will illustrate how an artist is influenced by the beauty of experiencing life. The book will illustrate the carefree designs that have brought deKwiatkowski to the forefront of New York's design scene. It will also inspire future designers to derive inspiration from the earthy and exotic elements of nature. The lush photographic book will combine memoir with an exquisite design sensibility, bringing life and movement to the traditionally still world of interior design.
