Wallpaper’s are back in fashion. They were big in the 70’s and then they disappeared under layers of paint. Now they are back and some of them are so beautiful, interesting and down-right brilliant. I even bought a book on them last year! Here are some that I have found over the last few weeks that I added to my inspiration book.
This giant calender (above) is by Christiaan Postma. It offers a very different prespective on time and sadly to me, reminds me of how fast a year flies past. But still … a very clever idea. I wonder if I should paint a calender on my wall … ummm
This wallpaper (above) is called ‘Adopt a monster’ and is by Sonja Schneider. I think it is so cute and fun. I would want to colour each ‘monster’ in and name it.
Such a beautiful and classic pattern (above) …but wait… upclose it is made up of ants! Brilliant! It is designed by Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi.
I love toiles and this one (above) is such an irony. A toile is sophisticated and ordered showcasing classic scenes of peasants in fields and so on. This design is called China town. Do I need to any more …. :)
I do not know what it is about this wallpaper but it is transfixing (above). The wallpaper, designed by Jenny Bergstrom aims to create an image that radiates disaster, beauty, fear and calm at the same time. This it does. I could stare at this wallpaper for hours.
