Calico Wallpaper’s Aura Collection Takes Inspiration from Color Psychology

Nick and Rachel Cope share a predilection for illustrating the artistic process through custom-printed wall coverings. Their partnership veers into the spectral realm with Aura, a collection that conjures the luminous energy said to surround a person or object. “I stumbled upon an aura photograph that Nick had taken as a child,” says Rachel. “The subtle interplay of colors was so striking that I immediately wanted to explore the medium as inspiration.” Digitally printed on Type II vinyl, the radiant compositions come in seven variations, each corresponding to different feelings, as determined by color psychology. And they’re all sold by the square foot, a subtle suggestion to encourage designers to create custom murals.
