Another example of my custom work! This ketubah features a papercut picturing a cherry tree rising from below; below, to the left, the roots stretch out and encompass the couples monogram; above in the branches, three birds are visible. The background is deep purple shading into deep rose and pink. 18×24. ************ All my ketubahs and wedding certificates are custom made. I do the background watercolor (ink wash) painting, the papercut design and cutting, and the calligraphy myself. I can work with any text you give me, in any language, and I love to include images and symbols that are special to you in the papercut or calligraphic design. I will work with you to develop your dream ketubah or wedding certificate. Also, if you happen to be in the NYC area, I would be happy to meet with you to show you some examples of my work. My ketubahs and wedding certificates are not prints: they are actual original paintings onto which I write, in calligraphy, your text. This is different from printed ketubahs and certificates you see that are personalized simply by adding your names, place, dates into a blank slot. Please convo me if you are interested in custom artwork of this kind. You can see other samples of my work on my website (http://www.jerise.com).

Have you seen our new Vintage Floral decals? We’ve been pretty obsessed with them, so if you follow us on Instagram or have visited the website lately, chances are you’ve seen the gorgeous blooms cascading their way down the corner of our studio.But this decal pack is unique because it offers the opportunity to layer the flowers for a bouquet effect. So, we decided to give you a little 3-step tutorial to help you achieve the same look. Because who doesn’t want a bouquet that never dies?!1) ArrangePick a wall, any wall! We chose a well-lit corner for an asymmetrical design, but feel free to get creative. After you’ve landed on the portion of wall you’d like to use, arrange the blooms in the space by taping them using painters or masking tape. This allows you to rearrange your design before permanently sticking it. After one bloom is taped to the wall, choose another, layering and spacing as you wish until your design is complete.2) PeelAre you happy with your design? Can you almost imagine the bouquet’s sweet perfume? If the answer is yes, it’s time to peel the adhesive back from your decals. Keeping the bloom tacked to the wall, lift the decal so you can see the back. Starting in a corner, slowly peel the back from the decal to expose the adhesive. As you pull, stick and smooth the decal to the wall, slowly working your way to the bottom.Now peel the front paper from the flowers, exposing their true colors! Remember to remove the paper slowly.3) SmoothTaking a credit card or squeegee, smooth any bubbles out of your blooming bouquet. You’re all finished! I guess we should have added a fourth step called “Admire”, huh? We’d love to see your process photos or your finished product! Tag thesearemyurbanwalls on Instagram so we can see your take on one of our new favorites!

Once relegated to industrial lofts and warehouse spaces, concrete, as a flooring material, is finally starting to be appreciated for its raw beauty. Its nice and cool underfoot, wonderful if you live in a warm climate, and, as these 14 interiors prove, has a texture and variation that give it a special warmth all its own.

This superking-size bed has heaps of character with a striking headboard and trunk-like legs. If we had a bigger bedroom this bed would be in it, so there is plenty of space to spread out. This item is made from cypress wood and is finished in a medium-pale varnish. As with all our furniture, this item was handcrafted in Kenya. Size – 227 cm length x 205cm width x 97 cm height (max) Fits 6ft x 6ft mattress Please note: All our beds can be flat-packed for easy delivery and are fastened together with hardened steel bolts when assembled to give a rustic effect (see pictures). We can assemble the bed for you if you live in the London or surrounding areas, otherwise we provide basic instructions, which require a little common sense and patience, spanners (not included) and a rubber mallet (not included). Slats are provided, but not the mattress. We offer free UK mainland delivery on all our products.
