Painted floral village

Zalipie

Did you know there’s a village in Poland that is painted with folk flowers? I’ve spotted snippets of the village over the past few years, but I never explored it until the other day and I was dumbstruck! The village is called Zalipie and it’s located in the South East part of Poland, close to Slovakia.

Apparently, the tradition started as a way to cover the smoke that stained the walls and ceiling from the fireplaces. The turned their traditional folk patterns into decorative interior elements and voila! Soon they adorned walls, bridges, barns, interiors, accessories. DESIGNRULZ-zalipie-22DESIGNRULZ-zalipie-21DESIGNRULZ-zalipie-33DESIGNRULZ-zalipie-31
