The Original Seed: Pinekapple

Pinecones protect the naked seeds of mighty trees, while pineapple seeds are difficult to grow and must be carefully tended until maturityInspired by traditional wallpaper motifs and the memories of women who grew up loving to explore wallpaper books with their mothers, Schauffler grafted these soulful symbols of nurture and protection into her Colorwright™ wallpaper designs.
