When creative forces collide, beautiful things can happen. Case in point: Dallas-based design team Bryan and Mike Yates of Yates Desygn recently partnered with artists Sarah English and Ashley Leftwich of wallcovering and art studio Ever Atelier to produce a new line of stunning wallpaper aptly named Ever x Yates, Montmartre Series.
“Each of our companies has a uniqueness that resulted in a seamless marriage between the two, and we are extremely proud of what we created together,” Bryan muses. Their joint collection consists of 14 carefully crafted papers in a variety of prints and colorways that include hand-painted, printed and photoreal elements. “We homed in on a more contemporary version of the Southern aesthetic for a unique look,” Bryan says.
His personal favorites? Hudson Lattice (in 24 Bond) reimagines a classic trellis design with references to an island in New York; while In-Site (in Rise) pays homage to windowpane plaids but with actual windows creating the layout. About the latter, Bryan continues, “I was inspired by looking out at the repetition of the architecture in downtown Dallas. I love this design so much that we installed it in our own primary bedroom.”
