Our latest featured designer’s love for all things historical is the inspiration behind her aesthetic for Peacoquette Designs. Sarah Walden is based in East Nashville, Tennessee, in a “wee stone cottage” with her husband, David, and daughter, Emily Haddyr. It’s there that her range of digital tools and skills help her transform public domain images into surface designs for today’s modern aesthetic, breathing new life into forgotten, yet beautiful antique prints. Get to know Sarah and see some of her most popular designs below!
