Project Description

Project: Brownson House Living Room - Victorian Wallpaper Art

Shelton Historical Society, Shelton, CT

We need an Illustrator to recreate the art for a wallpaper that was removed long ago and is to be replaced in a Federal style farmhouse, [url removed, login to view], in Fairfield County, Connecticut. We have a faint photo, and schematic sketch with the proportions already laid out for you. We just need someone who is a good illustrator with a painterly hand who is also adept at illustrator to create the digital file. End product will be a custom wallpaper that is digitally printed.

The Brownson House is an old farmhouse once owned by the Brownson Family, successful, yet frugal, middle-class, farmers who grew produce for the local market. Thought the home was originally built in 1824 by a wealthy merchant, the museum is outfitted to denote the middle class farm life of the Brownson in 1913, the moment before electricity, the telephone and technology came to the area. The home is now an interpretive museum that hosts school children and residents.

In short, we need someone who has experience and a knack for drawing roses, flowers, medallions, swags and bows in an old-timey, Victorian style. This is not modern in the least. Basically 3 motifs that will be repeated throughout the design in a half drop repeat. You will be working with me with regard to color selections ( I am an interior designer on the Restoration Committee). You would be recreating a bit of history and we would be greatly appreciative.

Important Note: File Brownson House No 2 is work in progress only ! :)
