Home & Style Summer Feature

Press
“Move over, traditional paper, for Black Crow Studios’ big, bold prints.”

Last week we were excited to be featured in Robb Report Home & Style’s July/August issue!  The magazine feature dives into the history behind Black Crow Studios and where the artwork has taken us so far — large scale and non-traditional.

Included is a striking recent install of our Little Rock Blues watercolor design, as well as our powder room mural done in collaboration with a Chicago manor home project called “the Manor Reborn” (see below).

“Whether it’s a watercolor image or a photograph, the important thing is to bring a sense of movement to the room,” she [Tracy Hiner] says. “That’s what evokes the biggest reaction.”

And thank you to Home & Style for the love!

LA Daily News Wallpaper Feature

Past Projects, Press

The Los Angeles Daily News recently took notice of Black Crow Studios along with our good friend and collaborator Christian May of Maison21 Interior Design in a Sunday full page feature. We are thrilled to be a part of a story about the real impact modern day wallpaper is making in the world of design. Many thanks to the LA Daily News and Suzanne Sproul for the newsstand shout-out!

Check out the online version here.

“Her works transform a space into an artistic vision from floor to ceiling. By using a large-format printing process, Hiner can create prints for any aesthetic while navigating any architectural feature a room may have.”

M21, BCS, and OKL

Past Projects, Press, Work Fun

We were fortunate enough to work with the SUPER talented and charming Christian May over at Maison 21 for a showhouse he was doing with California Home + Design magazine. He came up with the design idea and we made the wallpaper to fit the room as a custom piece.

Well, it turns out the tiny little bathroom and that BOLD wallpaper were quite a hit. California H+D teamed up with the infamous One Kings Lane to do a sale and we decided to rework the design just a bit and make it into a design that can be sold by the roll. It worked out great and so why stop there?? Now it is available in 5 colorways!!

The sale goes LIVE TONIGHT at 6pm PST /9pm EST and you can get the wallpaper at a discount!! There is a limited quantity of each colorway available so if you want it, snatch it up fast and let’s make this a successful sale for M21, BCS, and OKL!

Lots going on in the Hood

Big F*ing News, Press

I cannot believe it is May, and we are flying through this month. I have so many projects going on I cannot keep up. I am the bottleneck in my company running smoothly. I should seriously get written up or something, but there is no time for such things 🙂

Right now I am juggling 17 design projects. That does not even count 2 BIG exciting projects, that are still being planned out or all the proposals I am working on or recently sent. Plus the website re-design and me trying to find time to create my own art just for me to push myself, which seems to never happen. Where oh where does the time go?

I could work all day everyday and never catch up. I usually have to leave it up to the universe to decide when I am not going to work and usually it does when I least expect it. Like when I was out of town, I took my laptop and my top 3 critical design projects that HAD to get finished while I was away. Photoshop on said laptop would not work, no matter what, so instead I laid by the pool for 4 days and enjoyed it. Then had to stay up all night when I got back to do my 3 critical projects, but oh well.

Now I am back to running 1000mph.

So, while I have been lost in my work and not paying attention to…anything else…a bunch of press has been piling up.

I already had a bit which you can see here, here, and older stuff here.

First up:

Mountain Living. May/June 2012. I am honored to be in a magazine that features that cute of a dog on its cover.

Next up: Luxe. One of our wallpapers was picked for the Materials section in the wallpaper issue. We also had 5 designs being considered for one of the regional covers, but unfortunately they didn’t use any of them. I know it was probably because they were SO AMAZING, your brain would explode when you saw the cover and then you wouldn’t be able to buy the magazine. The people running Luxe are pretty damn smart.

I will say that I know that they mocked them all up, I would kill to have those mock up images just to see how it looked 🙂

Here are the non Black Crow Studios covers of Luxe for the Los Angeles area and the National cover.

 

You can see a 2″ section of a 15 foot wallpaper design. It is the far left on the first page and the top left on the 2nd one.

  

It is not a big picture, but I will most definitely take it and am honored to be included amongst the 16 or so designs picked. Here are a couple images of the actual design so you can see a little bit more than the magazine shows. It is one of my personal favorite wallpaper designs we have.

I did a little interview and photo shoot for Angeleno Interiors.

It came out and then I found out it was also in Riviera Interiors. That would be the Orange County version of the mag. So that was kind of cool. A nice little write up and the wallpaper looks pretty sick in the photo. I think it turned out really well and so if you can get your hands on a copy you should!

  

Lastly, BCS was featured in D Home magazine. It is a Dallas based magazine and they were interested in putting our stuff in the mag and then saw that I grew up in Dallas, so it was meant to be.

I told you it had been piling up! I have to get all of this added to my new website and on Facebook now, but at least you all know it is out there.

It has been crazy to get all this magazine attention, especially since I don’t work with a PR person and I didn’t initiate contact with any of the magazines. They were contacting me. Thank goodness because I have been way too busy to even think about getting press, let alone making it happen.

Cheers to all the magazines! I am truly honored to grace your pages. xoxo

Big F*ing News, Press

This year is starting off great! We were published for the first time in January see oh.my.god post. Then a couple of weeks later we were published in Canadian House and Home and we have been so swamped with projects, proposals and requests I am just now getting it posted!!
