10/6/16New Work: Justina Blakeneytm X Schoolhouse Electric

Justina X Schoolhouse

I’ve been drooling over the hardware and lighting at Schoolhouse Electric for years so when they asked if I wanted to design a collection of bedding for them I got really excited. The Portland-based boutique has a very cool sensibility and it’s very different from mine. That was one thing I found so exhilarating about the partnership–trying to figure out how I was going to my Jungalow vibe to Schoolhouse — who’s modern/industrial thing is pretty tight?

Eucalyptus by Justina Blakeney

Schoolhouse gave me a jumping off place by telling me that the above pic that I snapped a few years ago of eucalyptus and grapefruit  was one of their favorite works of mine so that seemed like a good place to start.

The eucalyptus is kind of a great subject because there are so many different kinds with vastly differently shaped leaves, seeds, pods and flowers.  I drew several versions of the pattern before landing on the one that we all thought was a good marriage between our styles. 

Making of Eucalyptus Nights by Justina Blakeney

Above you can see a few of the iterations of the pattern that we did before landing on the perfect one.
We gave the pattern a dark background a decided to call it Eucalyptus nights — and even the name makes me feel a little bit more relaxed.

The pattern is screen-printed onto cotton percale fabric in Portugal. It’s available as bed sheets, duvet and shower curtain.

I’m in love with the way that the set looks in Emily Katz‘ bedroom.  screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-10-25-31-am

Head on over to Schoolhouse to see our whole collection, and read an interview about the collab here.  Woot woot!

    Mm. The citrus and silver dollar eucalyptus has been one of my favs for a long while, too. How do I figure out what size duvet cover to order. My duvet is European, so I don’t know whether I need double matrimonio or queen/retina. It’s 200 by 210 cm

    Love it as bedding, but the shower curtain is everything! Just makes the bath.

  7. Gorgeous! Everything you touch is so beautiful. Love the way Schoolhouse mixed and matched the sheets and pillows — a weakness of mine! Totally #copying!
