Exciting news here at WallPops: We’re partnering with artists around the country to transform their work into peel and stick wallpaper – and to bring you only the best designs for your home. And we’re thrilled to share that our latest collaboration is with none other than Hadiya Williams of Black Pepper Paperie Co!

Hadiya Williams is a mixed-media artist from Washington, DC whose globally inspired pieces explore a lineal connection to her ancestral culture and her experience as a Black person in America. While she has an extensive background in graphic design, Hadiya has found that she enjoys working with her hands the most. Her one-of-a-kind pieces span from wearable ceramic art to home décor – and are now being brought to the large-scale canvas of wallpaper!

“This collaboration marks the beginning of the next phase of my creative work,” says Hadiya. “It feels like a small workshop that’s allowing me to really explore my thinking around culture and surface design.”

We’re so elated to partner with an artist as skilled as Hadiya, and to be a part of the next evolution of her work! Let’s take a deeper dive into her collection, and the designs you’ll see on our peel and stick wallpaper substrate:

The Black Pepper Method Collection

Hadiya’s artwork is an exploration of lineage, culture, and connection. “The Great Migration is a large part of my family’s story,” says Hadiya. “This particular collection was inspired by that movement and migration.”

“I created the pattern SHIFT from a decorative ceramic comb,” Hadiya says. “It was exciting transforming my ceramic work into a 2D format and developing a series of patterns from those original handmade pieces.”

TRAVERSE is based on some earlier work that I created. I was thinking about mazes and the energy of movement in space: how we take up space and how we travel through and move around unknown spaces.”

TRAVERSE is available in 3 colorways and SHIFT is available in 2. Hadiya says that her collection’s style would fit someone who is bold, fun, and interested in something modern for their home.

Hadiya’s top placement recommendations for her designs include bathrooms, children’s rooms, and revamped office spaces – but we want to see what you can do with these powerful prints!
