Fresh Flair

he Los Feliz aerie of Alix Soubiran is just the kind of place you’d imagine for the whimsical designer of Princes & Crows wallpaper and decor. A sleepy black rabbit shuffles across the studio’s hardwood floor; personal paintings of bunnies, float-

ing rams and a mischievous-looking squirrel are stacked under a suite of paned windows; layers of sloping decks wrap around the home; and narrow staircases connect the three charmingly mismatched levels. Trained at Atelier Met de Penninghen as a muralist, the former Parisian began her career in 2000, decorating the interiors of various celebrity homes and stylish houses in the West Indies, Palm Beach, France and England. Then, three years ago, something about the reflective light in California and the distance from her homeland sparked a transition to wallpaper. “I had something to say that I couldn’t say with murals,” she notes. In her world, scenes of feasts, fawns and cupids would be verboten; nothing would be classic; her papers would have monikers such as “Major Tom” and “Sea Ballet.” The subjects are oversized flowers, deep-sea creatures, animal circus acts and abstract patterns, all in harmonious hues. “The colors cannot not be overwhelming but still must have character,” she says, pulling out one of her hand-painted gouaches. “I want my wallpaper to be as if candle smoke were penetrating the walls,” she remarks
