Maker Monday: Brett Beldock

Interior designer and product designer Brett Beldock is not your average decorator. The former fashion designer now uses her multifaceted talents for combining color, pattern, and personality in the interiors world. In her design work, Beldock helps her clients push limits, expanding on their visions for their homes and adding bits of her signature style to her firm’s projects. She combines elegance with eclecticness in her projects, a difficult line for many to straddle; but for Beldock, adding marijuana leaves to upscale wallpaper comes with ease. Her wildly popular wallcovering line, Brett Design Wallpaper, is sold to design lovers from coast to coast, perfect for those seeking something a bit different from the norm while staying sophisticated. Her wonderfully offbeat collection of furniture and decor for CB2 flies off the sleeves and onto the pages of some of the most respected design publications. A favorite of consumers and critics, Beldock is the definition of someone born for the job. Meet Brett and take a look at some of her stunning wallpapers below.
