The home of... Textile designer Isabel Wilson

The Williamsburg home of Textile designer Isabel Wilson









"By exploring the world and dissecting it into measured fragments, compiling collections becomes an act of seeing. To artist and textile designer  Isabel Wilson, collecting what she sees and what she likes is not just a passion, but a necessity. Her apartment and studio are both filled with a rich archive of assembled butterflies, sea shells, foam creatures and other carefully catalogued elements, of which traces echo into her colorful paintings and fabric designs."

Gabie.....This is so very interesting....she seems to be much more about TEXTURE THAN COLOR. It always amazes me how textile designs can go so many different ways.

It's a lovely space overall, but the fawn skin on the back of her couch is disturbing.
