Watercolor trend

I've always been fascinated with artists who create such beautiful works of art, in particular watercolors.  I love the fluidity of the colors bleeding together and overlapping to create richness, depth, and dimension.  With a simple brush, paint, and canvas,  a work of art is created.  I'm equally fascinated at how these masterpieces translate from a canvas to the walls, furniture, and fabrics in interior design.  They too are one of a kind masterpieces that break the bonds of the traditional.  Just take a look at these beautiful interpretations of watercolor art.

I just about fell out of my chair when I came across these pretty floral watercolor chairs from DwellStudio.  Aren't they so beautiful?
These custom watercolor wallpapered walls by Black Crow Studios are simply stunning how they create fluid-like lines leading toward the bedroom at the end of the hallway.

This beautiful wallpaper from Eskayel in Taylor Tomasi's Chelsea, New York apartment reminds me of the paint press projects that I used to do in school.  Each of them was unique and different.  There's something a little haunting, almost alien about this print, and in a good way.  Do you see it?

Another beautiful Black Crow Studios masterpiece.  Aren't those colors completely gorgeous?

Amanda at the upholstery shop, Spruce in Austin, TX transformed this little accent chair into a true work of art.  Aren't those broad brush strokes amazing?

 The touch of watercolor in the pillow and chair adds some soft visual interest in this tranquil master suite.
