For this weeks Open CallÂ let me introduce you toÂ Shay Spaniola. Shay founded Bunglo, Â an Austin based design studio Â in 2013. Â Â Shay designs all the fabric patterns and illustrations with ink watercolours and acrylics and her collections are inspired by her travels to foreign cultures. Shayâs travelled to over 35 counties already and sheâs only 26! Pretty cool no?
There is specific focus on the spirituality of the East which Iâll think you agree shines through. Â This beautiful collection of water coloured pillows has an essence about it that is both calming and intriguing at the same time.
Before starting Bunglo in 2013, Shay was a visual lead at Anthropologie, which gave her a deep understanding of retail merchandise and how to best package products for contemporary and eclectic homes. She also spent time traveling all over the world as a photo journalist, which is where her Â inspiration to start Bunglo first started.
