If this wall­pa­per could talk

Richmond Hill Post - - Homes -

Lo­cal artist Can­dice Kaye, who grew up in Rich­mond Hill, is behind the vi­brant wall­pa­per de­signs pop­ping up in res­tau­rants across the city. Af­ter leav­ing an in­te­rior design pro­gram, Kaye went to Paris and got into fab­ric man­u­fac­tur­ing. She then trained in tex­tiles at the Fashion In­sti­tute in New York City, and, in her fi­nal year was asked to create four cus­tom prints for Ma­man café. That project sparked the idea to create cus­tom wall­pa­per, and her work now ap­pears in Planta, Cantina Mer­catto, Palm Lane, By­b­los North, Ball­room Bowl, Mary Be, Pantry, Bad­dies and more. She re­cently launched an on­line store for her wall­pa­per and rugs and is work­ing on fab­ric by the yard as well. And she’s got global reach with projects in Mi­ami, Las Ve­gas, St. Barths and Aus­tralia.
