MERINDA Studio creates textiles, wallcoverings and art for the home based on nature and travel photography. Based in the Northshore of Chicago and founded by two friends, Erin McCarthy, a photographer, and Mindy Turitz, and ex-retail and fashion exec. Each design often begins from photographs take by Erin and is then responsibly made by small print shop across the US.
“I chose to shoot spring flowers and plans for Vernal Equinox but intentionally manipulated them and placed them on dark backgrounds to highlight the intersection between winter and spring.” says McCarthy.
“Partnering with ARCH has been a dream. I love the unique things Laura brings into the shop, from vintage garden furniture to unusual topiary. ARCH is also a haven for local artists in the community – Laura is always bringing creative people together.” says Turitz.
