One of my favorite Grandmillennials is artist Riley Sheehey who I enjoy following on Instagram. With a whimsical and playful outlook, Riley finds inspiration from the past through vintage floral wallpaper, antique botanical prints, block print textiles, and more. I have prints from her botanical series and simply love them! Riley has engaged in numerous product collaborations, and the latest is Riley Sheehey for Moda Domus.
For this collection, Riley incorporated her signature soft pastel florals to design hand painted tableware such as scallop-edged and shell-shaped plates, table linens embroidered in Morocco, and glasses and plates hand-painted by Italian artisans. She channels the charm of southern summers, inspired by old block-printed textiles, hand-painted Spanish and Portuguese antiques, and William Morris botanicals.
Below are highlights from the Riley Sheehey for Moda Domus collection.
“My favorite part of this collaboration is that during a global pandemic, Moda has managed to bring together artists and artisans from all over the world to create pieces (the textiles are embroidered in Morocco, the glasses and plates are hand-painted by Italian artisans, and I am designing and hand-painting collateral in Virginia), making the world feel a little smaller,” Riley said via Instagram. “In a time when so many things are quickly and mass-produced, to me, this collection, full of hand-painted elements, is a celebration of the art of ‘slow living.’ Working on these designs with Moda has undoubtedly been a highlight of my career, and I am so grateful for the opportunity.”
