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.

Our latest collaboration is with the super cool BLIK based in LA. We have teamed to create a new range of super cool home goods. Pulling patterns like Sparkle Black, Jazz Tartan and Fold Green from our 2016 KG Basics wallpaper line, our fashionable totes, pillows and shower curtains combine pretty pastels and neutrals with striking geometrics.
Colourful, playful and geometrical in style, my wallpapers have become widely used for new nuseries and playrooms. Working in conjunction with House Beautiful Magazine at the Ideal Home Show 2015 my 'Jewel' wallpaper was used to style up a playroom which has given my customers ideas of ways to use my wallpapers for a magical children's room. I recently designed a new Twin's nursery in Miami, which was a real joy to work on. This playroom utilised my 'Tropic' wallpaper and I designed additional complimenting bespoke rolls, photos to follow soon. Up and coming children's projects include a playroom in The Hamptons, New York and a nursery refit in Holland. Keep your eyes on projects section for photos and information.
Bespoke projects are my favourite, whether that be designing patterns for products such as home accessories or fashion or creating a bespoke wallpaper for a client.
Recently I completed a fantastic creative bespoke wallpaper project for a Centre Process Innovation (CPI). I was approached to design a bespoke wallpaper that reflects the theme of the company - biology and science - how could I make this super cool?!
I wanted to write this blog post to highlight the process of working on a very unique wallpaper project from start to finish.
1. Design meeting to discuss initial ideas, themes and budget. The team at CPI left the initial stages very open ended. I worked closed with the Interior Architect whom provided plans and measurements of each area so I could make a start on this 6 week project.
2. I visited the science labs to soak up some inspiration for a starting point. Observing colour choices which had not been fully discussed at this stage and whether CPI wanted a more corporate or cool feel?
3. From my collection of photos I started to interpret my own designs. As the spaces I was designing for were huge I worked on wide width wallpaper. For an appropriate amount of coverage to ensure a variation without to much repetition I designed three rolls, overall 30m of varied pattern.
4. Design meeting to present first draft to the team and note feedback and alterations. The first draft was very creative and included aspects bright popping colour. From this point is was decided the designs were spot on and the colours needed to muted to the corporate colours that range from a blue to grey for CPI. I added aspects of oranges, pinks and yellows subtly. The furniture upholstery had speckles of bright colours which we wanted to reflect in the design.
5. The team at CPI decided later in the project the colours had to reflect the corporate theme of the company. Amendments and finalising designs back and forth, this is the final draft.
6. I worked on-site to help with installation making sure each panel was placed in the correct area. To see more photos of the project please visit here.
