Kelly Behun Adds a Dance of Landscape, Light, and Shadow to Wallpaper
If ever there was a vantage point to watch how light changes throughout the span of the day, month, or year, it would from designer Kelly Behun’s New York City apartment (see it here). Behun brings her unique vision to a new perspective through a collaboration with Calico Wallpaper. Sylvan is a hand-painted landscape reflecting shadows that cast around abstracted trees on snowy mountains. The pattern captures a moment in time, bringing together landscape, light, and shadow. Each of the eight colorways evokes a hypnotic effect, much like how it is watching light play around you as the day passes on and the sun moves west.
There is something magical and mercurial about the interplay of light and shadow – it’s an endless dance – and the notion of being able to capture a moment in their choreography was too good to pass up.
