spring wallpapers

Saturday, May 6, 2017

Spring is here and I’ve found myself back at this years collection of ever-growing Elle Decor issues. I’ve wanted to write a post with a run down of my favourite wallpapers for a while now and I figured what better time than now, while it’s still spring (even thought the London weather is trying to convince us otherwise). Regardless, I went on a hunt to find my top five wallpapers that scream spring.

Wallpaper can inject so much life into a space and change the character of a room completely. If you ever have trouble tying in different colours a textures, it’s definitely a good idea to try adding a statement wall. I particularly love floral and leafy patterns as a way of bringing a charming touch of nature indoors.

Here are the patterns that made the cut:

ONE – ‘KALA’ BY MANUEL CANOVAS

Embodied on Panama linen, this leafy pattern recalls a garden in full bloom. Its vibrant colours and delicate finish make this fabric perfect for adding life into any space.

TWO – ‘ENGLISH ROSE’ BY FEATHR

The layered brushstrokes and painterly splatters on this most unique of floral wallpapers, designed by Finnish artist Reeta Rk, makes the perfect statement alongside deep watery blues.
THREE – ‘CASSIOPEIA’ BY CALICO

A collaboration with Amsterdam’s BCXSY concept design studio, Inverted Spaces transforms NASA satellite imagery into a series of constellational portraits.It explores the beauty of the infinite expansion of the universe. Gazing up at the distant light of the planets and stars, we see that we are but a speck in a stunning sky. Dangerously beautiful and still as water calmed, Cassiopeia mesmerises even herself.

FOUR – ‘ZANZY’ BY AQUAZZURA X DE GOURNAY

I’ve always been a fan of De Gorunay’s exquisite hand-painted wallpapers and this collaboration with Aquazzura is so dreamy. The Zany patterns feature a menagerie of tropical toucans, parrots and monkeys. You can’t go wrong with such a fun and dynamic pattern.
FIVE – ‘SINGITA’ BY COLE & SON

‘We knew we wanted a dense, Henri Rousseau-inspired jungle scene for one wallpaper’, says Carley Bean, Cole & Son’s head of creative. The foliage that trims many Ardmore pots inspired this design, which translates as ‘Place of Miracles’ in Shangaan and is the name of a wildlife reserve in South Africa. Spot the occasional animal drawn by artist Alex Sibande. No wonder it featured as this months cover.
