Lise stars on Design*Sponge

Lise was recently asked by Design*Sponge to describe her creative process and also talk about her favorite tools for design. The interview was published in their "What's in Your Toolbox" feature. The popular Design*Sponge blog has been called "Martha Stewart Living for the Millennials" by the New York Times.

Lise says, “The creative process is a funny, emotional roller coaster ride, and I try to show up and hang on to my hat and enjoy the ride. The more often I show up, the more things happen; it’s wonderful in that way.”

 

We're in a new book

Design consultant Khristian Howell’s marvelous book, Color + Pattern: 50 Playful Exercises for Exploring Pattern Design, a book of tips, tutorials, and inspiration for pattern makers, has just come out. We were asked to contribute our own design exercise, and our work also appears in a chapter on studying the successful collections of others. Khristian says, “The Sisters Gulassa create pure magic with their eclectic collections. They have a wonderful gift for threading patterns together with a common theme, color story, or style that is always dynamic and intriguing.”

 

Spotted in RealLiving magazine

Real Living magazine featured several SistersGulassa wallpaper designs for Emily Ziz in an article on reinventing your rooms with wallpaper.

 

Collaboration featured in Vogue Brasil

According to Vogue Brasil Luisa Farani is a name to watch. Her newest 'We ♥ Miami' collection for summer 2016 was inspired by the famous graffiti of the Wynwood Arts District in Miami. The designer describes the collection by saying that it, like Miami, combines elements of urban and beach, with lots of attitude." And the flashy yet sophisticated SistersGulassa prints commissioned for the collection fit quite neatly into this sensibility.

 

Most fun aspect of collaborating with Luisa and Paula Farani: they are SISTERS, like us!
