Press Roundup: Los Angeles Magazine, How & More

Press Roundup: Los Angeles Magazine, How & More

Blik’s very first press piece was in Los Angeles magazine back in October 2002. Almost twelve years later, the thrill still hasn’t worn off so we’re pretty excited to be featured again in Los Angeles magazine this month. In the article the Custom Treatment, Blik and other creative Angelinos are credited with “when it comes to one of a kind, these L.A. artisans are masters.” Thanks Los Angeles!

Did you know Blik does custom? In addition to our retail product line, Blik creates branding graphics and full-scale art murals for clients all around the globe, including local L.A. clients like KCRW, Google and Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA. Check out more of our Customize projects.

In January, HOW magazine shared our The Not Whiteboard with readers. Available in 24 colors and 2 shapes, this modern take on the traditional dry erase board is a hit!

In the mood to freshen up your abode for spring? St. Louis At Home, Spring 2014 recommends Blik Pattern Wall Tiles in A Brighter Background to “make your blah, blank walls into a cozy background.” Eco-friendly Pattern Wall Tiles are “sticky without the icky” and are a great alternative to traditional wallpaper to add color and/or pattern to any wall.

We admit that we were SO excited to see our own Scott Flora on the cover of last Saturday’s Los Angeles Times Home section. So excited that we forgot to add the story to our blog. Well, better late than never!

The story (written by the awesome Lisa Boone) takes a look at Scott’s sunny Venice cottage and looks at how he uses his space as a test kitchen for new Blik designs. Although it may be small, the walls of the house get quite a workout. We’ll let Scott describe living in a design lab:

“The graphics allow me to keep one eye on what we’re doing as a company, while enjoying my life at home,” he said. “I don’t need to think deeply about them each day, but by having our works around me, I do consider how a particular piece makes me feel over time.” He asks himself: Do I still like this design? Would I prefer to change it? How do others react when they see it? Or do they not react at all. If it works for me,” he said, “it very well may work for others.”

Nicely put, Scott! If you missed the article, you can check out the online version here as well as a slideshow here filled with photos of Scott’s home and of course his always adorable daughter Aja.

Pick-up a copy of The New York Times today and flip to the Home section. Our new wall puzzles by A Modern Eden are featured in Currents. They love the interactivity of the puzzles and how they function as both a game for preschoolers as well as a decorative accent. Of course, we couldn’t agree more, but we think Scott sums up the draw of the puzzles best:

“Once you get it on your wall, it’s this beautiful thing. But at the same time, it requires some assembly, and you’re teaching your child about how things go together.”

Blik in Our Homes: Co-founder Scott Flora

As part of our extra special birthday month, we wanted to give you a glimpse into our homes. Every other month, we’ll take you on a tour through a home of one of the Blik founders or staffers. The first stop on our journey is the crib of Blik’s co-founder Scott Flora. While many of the walls in Scott’s house have Blik graphics, we present to you three distinct rooms.

In his living room, we see Hybrid Design’s “Heart Breakout” in a delicious cotton candy hue. The striking David Bray graphic “I Never Saw the Sign” is prominently featured on the back wall with a glimpse of “Anise” on the far right peeking in from another room.

His daughter Aja’s room is bright and cheery with “Flutter” decals by Christy Flora. In the midst of the butterflies, lies Christy Flora’s original handmade paper butterfly box.

Lastly, one can gaze into the large “Fernwood Mirror” in Scott’s guest bathroom. It adds a perfect touch of elegance and boldness to the space.

If there’s one thing you can learn from Scott’s home, it is you can never have too much Blik. We’ll be back in November with another chapter of Blik in our homes. Stay tuned!

Pick up a copy of The New York Times Home section* today and take a look at page D7. See someone familiar? Yep, it’s us! Our friend, architect Barbara Bestor is profiled in the paper’s “Shopping With” column. In the column, Barbara peruses wall covering options from wallpaper to wall decals. At Blik, Barbara selected Asteroids and the Wrought Iron Headboard as her favorites. According to her: “The advantage of a decal is that you get to really individualize your environment with about as much effort as putting a poster on the wall.”

We could not have said it better ourselves. Congrats to Barbara on the great article and thanks for the Blik mention!

Wow! We are thrilled with the recent accolades Blik has received.

Earlier this month, the fashion and culture tastemakers at Style Section L.A. profiled Blik and declared “adding high drama to your abode is as easy as peel-and-stick.” We could not agree more. We also loved being called a genius wall decal company. A little flattery goes a long way!

Entrepreneur’s Annual 100 Brilliant Ideas (June issue) looked at 10 areas that are growing fast and in each area they found 10 companies that bring jaw-dropping ingenuity to the table. And (drumroll, please) Blik was chosen as the top company in the Home Improvement category. Pick-up a copy of the June issue today to read about how Blik is bringing high design to the masses.
