It is that time of the year where I always start to think about new interior looks. It could be a simple as changing a feature wall to alter the way your interiors feel. Spring is about lighter days and more sunshine and I have chosen four popular geometric wallpapers that will inject some brights into your residential or commercial space this year! Any of our wallpapers can be tailored to suit your interior scheme, this may be changing colourways/patternways. Our four top picks for spring are Jazz Tartan, Rocco Red, Fold Yellow and Tropic. So on trend and soooo Spring!
We are so excited to introduce our new Mix 'n' Match 17 Wallpaper Collection, visiting a new country and translating our experiences into a design masterpiece is at the heart of what we do!
In June 2016 we travelled to Cuba visiting the sites of Havana Trinidad Cienfuegos and Varadero. The rustic charms of Havana still remain and we wanted to capture the old history before it all changes. Trinidad is a magical place full of bright colour around every street corner with snippets of broken tiles, decaying man made surfaces with contrasting patterns. Cuba is a surface designer's dream as there is so much to see and record through drawing and photography.
The Mix ‘n’ Match 17 wallpaper collection introduces three new patterns, La Habana, Obrapia and Trinidad. We took so many interesting photos in Cuba and we wanted to include these within the final collection. Combining photography and Illustrator we designed three new wallpaper patterns which reflect the imperfect beauty of Cuba.
Each wallpaper is a 52cm by 10m roll of varied pattern with no single repeat, available to purchase via our online store at £95.00 per roll.
Our Mix 'n' Match Wallpapers are so easy to paste, with no match up or repeat in the patterns have fun exploring different ways to paste. Cut and paste sections, apply landscape or portrait to create a Cuban masterpiece on your wall!

This August 2016 marks the 5th birthday of my brand! I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your love and support in helping me build my dream business. It has been a been roller coaster of challenges, riding the ups and downs, wearing several different hats and learning to balance everything!
Coming up to 5yrs, I looked back through previous projects over the years which I am truly grateful being a part of. Thank you to press support, featuring me in top industry publications worldwide and the continued love and admiration from the design community. August 2016 is also a very special month as we welcome our new CEO, Ninya the Pekingese, she loves pastel pink just like me! Tee hee... Thankyou all and here's to the next 5!
We love the range of challenging projects that come through the door. This latest surface pattern collaboration project was a pleasure to work on. Transforming our patterns into stitch for mattresses. Working on the project over the last 12 months there have been many stages from initial concepts/research/ fabric and pattern sampling with stitch to the final products.
Overall we designed four patterns for the 2016 Ensleep Collection available to purchase from Hydudai Livart in Korea. Each one is individual adding a quirky design element through shape reflecting a cool and minimal scandinavian style.
Are you thinking of sprucing up your interiors this year? Why not dare to go different with a unique feature wall for your living room, bedroom or any other interior space in your house.
I have created some cool features around my home which add a different feel and identity to each space. I am constantly changing my spaces as I am always collecting new finds from travels which ignite new themes!
Over the years it has been fantastic seeing how clients have transformed their homes with our designs. Some have applied single strips, some paired the papers with paint, landscape or portrait. I often have customers come to me for something more unique, designing a bespoke wallpaper. Recently I have worked with a lovely customer in Miami decorating their new nursery. Half of the large space is decorated with my Tropic wallpaper and the other half I designed a complimentary paper which was much more subtle. Pictures will follow soon!
I am loving my new collection KG BASICS 2016 . I wanted to create a subtle collection that works as a repeat creating stunning feature walls for all residential and commercial spaces. The most beautiful combinations work pairing patterns from all ranges, if you dare!
Me and my wonderful team are always on hand to help you with a feature wall or any other queries! Check out an example daring feature wall below, I have paired with some beautiful accessories which I adore.
