Tastemaker: Will Wick, Decorist Celebrity Designer

Posted August 24, 2015 by Nora Handsher

When innovative interior design firm Decorist made over Erica Chan’s bedroom (the influential blogger behind HonestlyWTF), they enlisted celebrity San Francisco-based designer Will Wick. Here’s what they have to share about creating the gallery wall above her dresser which includes our Cameroonian Juju Hat II: “As we were conceptualizing the gallery wall, we knew we wanted something with texture and dimension to complement Erica’s more linear framed pieces. During the design process, it became clear that Erica’s style has a global edge. And because she’s a blogger, we had a hunch that she would appreciate a good story more than most. Given that, St. Frank was an obvious go-to. St. Frank had been on both of our radars since it launched because of its compelling social mission, commitment to craftsmanship, and, of course, its stunning textiles… all with a rich story to share. We have seen many a juju hat, but nothing quite like the one we sourced on St. Frank. The feathers are the most beautiful combination of rich browns and white. When we spotted it on the St. Frank website, there was no deliberation – we knew we had found our piece!”
