Sharon Holmin Interiors is a Los Angeles-based Interior Design firm that offers a line of artisanal decor products designed by our firm, including contemporary wallpapers for residential and hospitality use, as well as fabric, lighting, and accessories. A selection of our unique designer-created wallpapers is presented here, on Dering Hall.
Over the last several years, the category of wallpaper has undergone a transformation as a surfacing option in interior design. The beautiful traditional florals and Toiles de Jouy that were usually limited to use with the more traditional interior styles have been joined by an exciting explosion of more contemporary options, in a wide variety of new textures, materials, formats, and designs. These new wallcoverings offer a wealth of choices, including grass cloths, corks, barks, even glass-based wallcoverings, as well as gorgeous metallics, large-format murals, and abstract paper designs.
It is as a part of this new group of exciting design choices – many of which are available to you on this website – that Sharon Holmin Interiors is pleased to offer our new line of original contemporary abstract wallpapers.
All of our original wallpapers are designed in Los Angeles, CA, and printed in the United States, in North Carolina.
- What’s your go-to classic color choice?
- Splashes of Indigo against clean white. In smaller spaces I love icy light blues, like Farrow and Ball's "Borrowed Light" (gorgeous in baths).
- Is there a hotel that’s most inspired your work while traveling?
- It's hard to choose. My current obsession is a place I haven't been to yet: Celerie Kemble's brilliantly designed resort in the Dominican Republic, the Playa Grande Beach Club. Whimsical, tropical, relaxed, and elegant. Perfect.
- Which pieces of technology do you use to document design inspiration?
- Where do you go to spot new style?
- Dwell on Design and Legends of La Cienega.
- Do you have a favorite restaurant (for the design and the food, of course)?
- Zabumba, a Brasillian restaurant in Culver City.
- What’s your favorite small museum in the world?
- The Hammer. Full of surprises and very alive. I've seen video art there that's stayed with me for years.
- How do you usually start your weekend?
- NPR's Weekend Edition, lots of coffee, and a newspaper. Then maybe a neighborhood walk with Bub and Reina, our Australian Shepherd.
- Who or what is your biggest design influence?
- The brilliant Judith Corona, an artist and painter who teaches color theory at the ARC_ID Program at UCLA Ext. I was lucky enough to be her T.A. for a year, and learned volumes from her about color theory and the psychology of color.
- How do you keep it all together?
- I'll let you know if I ever figure it out. I know dog cuddling helps.
- Design a garden: groomed or freestyle?
- I love the windswept-meadow feel of a great freestyle garden. But here in Los Angeles, I just finished yanking everything out of our yard and putting in drought-tolerant landscaping.
