Historical Female Scientist Wallpaper

Article first published as Grow House Grow Wallpapers on Technorati.

There is nothing like uncovering history in your walls. Or in the case of Katie Deedy, covering your walls with history. Whatever the case, you'll love Katie Deedy's new Naturalist wall paper collection. Deedy, of Grow House Grow, presented her inspiring collection wallpapers at BKLYN Designs 2010 last week.

Like all of her work, this collection is narrative-based with stories that accompany each design. In this year's Naturalist collection, she is inspired by historical female scientists.

Some of the  scientists she's chosen to explore are Mary Treat (1830-1923), a lover of carnivorous botanicals, Mary Ward (1827-1869) a women with a passion for microscopy in insects, and Jeanne Villepreux-Power (1794-1871) who invented the world's first aquarium.

 

Deedy's designs are not only beautiful, but also environmentally friendly. According to Inhabitat, Deedy "reuses all of her leftover ink, uses paper from certified trees and makes sure that all the manufacturing is done in an energy efficient manner." 

Katy makes covering your walls beautiful, smart, and eco-friendly. The only word that comes to mind is, Wow!

The wallpaper will run you about $150 per roll, and is available in three different colorways. More information available through Grow
House Grow's website.
