In June 2016, I visited Cuba, visiting Havana, Trinidad, Cienfuegos and Varadero. The rustic charms of this island nation compelled me to capture the old history before it changed, and is the inspiration behind two new patterns for BLIK. This is our seventh surface pattern collaboration with BLIK allowing me to share my designs across the globe around trendy LA and beyond.
Cuba 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. I have juxtaposed bold tropical colors, architectural styles like brick and tile work, with geometric line art to create Cuba Wall Panels and Trinidad Wall Panels
We are loving our new Obrapia wallpaper from the Mix 'n' Match 17 collection, inspired by cuban vibes. Stuck on styling ideas? Well not to worry as we have selected a few products to help you get started designing your new interior space for Spring/Summer 2017!
Paste the Obrapia wallpaper as feature on as many walls as you wish, to compliment visit Little Greene to select a beautiful paint colour in 'Chemise'. Soft and tactile furnishings compliment the wallpaper so we have chosen the 'Blade in Heather' rug from Floor Story and the 'Margot' two seater sofa in peacock blue velvet from Made.com. The 'Collins Floor Lamp' in Evergreen provides a punch of contrasting colour from Made.com. Finish the look with gold accessories within soft furnishings and artworks.
There are two other patterns within the Mix 'n' Match 17 collection, La Habana and Trindad. Mix up with the extra patterns cutting and pasting, landscape or portrait! We are happy to help you with any combination styles, please get in touch.
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!
