New Mismatch Miami 18 Wallpaper

Travel often inspires me in lots of ways and one of the biggest ways is through design! I can’t help but soak up the ambiance of other cultures and places and turn my inspiration into a new wallpaper for you to enjoy.

This summer 2018 I spent some time in Miami and Puerto Rico, both places were so vibrant in their own ways. What can I say….Miami has to be in my top 3 places I have traveled. The people, culture, design scene was certainly a bit of me. From Wynwood to Little Havana there were pockets of inspiration everywhere. Miami is known for its Art Deco magnificence and its pastel palettes. Using my camera to record the essence of the city I captured elements of shape and pattern and transformed my visual journey into a new wallpaper, Miami 18.

The roll has a free match and is non repetitive. Play with the 10m roll to create a composition that is unique to your interior space. The wallpaper adopts large graphic art deco shapes with pastel pink, grey, white and black tones. I wanted to keep a pastel tone to the wallpaper as these colours were very iconic to the buildings I observed.

Miami 18 is available to purchase via the online store and we ship worldwide. Thinking about a colour change, just get in touch to discuss your ideas. For contract interiors we can print onto a vinyl if preferred which is charged individually per job.

SUMMER TRAVEL INTERIOR VIBES 2017

I have a huge love for travel and whenever there is the possibility to visit somewhere new I am on it! If you don't already know, my travel destinations often form the basis of my wallpaper collections. If you are looking for some holiday inspiration this summer 2017 below are our top five spots to visit. However, fear not, if you wont be jetting of this summer, bring a bit of pattern paradise to your interiors with our worldly wallpaper selection.

1. Maldives

This is the perfect place to relax and unwind for a maximum of seven days. I like a mixture of adventure and sunbathing so seven days is enough before I head of to my next destination. The Mix 'n' Match 15 wallpaper collection introduces two patterns, Tropic and Monochrome, two rolls of assorted pattern with no single repeat. Inspired by under the sea and applying our pretty geometric interpretation, Tropic draws upon the brights of sea life surfaces experimenting with an ombre effect colour balance. Monochrome is a black and white contrast of the same patterns adding a bold statement wallpaper to our existing collections.   

2. Marrakech

This is one of my favourite places to buy interior accessories for my home. There is so much pattern, colour and vibrance to capture across this city. I had to translate my surface pattern love for this place onto paper, you can buy some our favourite designs from the KG Basics 2016 range. Shop Medina Red and Jazz Vintage!

3. Cuba

In June 2016 I travelled to Cuba visiting the sites of Havana Trinidad, Cienfuegos and Varadero. The rustic charms of Havana still remain and I 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 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, Havana, Obrapia and Trinidad. I took so many interesting photos in Cuba and we wanted to include these within the final collection. Combining photography and Illustrator I designed three new wallpaper patterns which reflect the imperfect beauty of Cuba. Below is Oprabia and Trinidad.

4. India

Being Indian, it was great to finally travel India and introduce my heritage and culture into this collection. Taj and Pink City make up the India 14 collection. I  took in the sights of the beautiful Taj Mahal and Jaipur, in which I fell in love with the bright colours and soft and curvaceous lines of the architecture. The colours of the collection play with a striking rich traditional Indian red offset with muted pastel hues.

5. Dubai

High - end and glamourous springs to mind when I think Dubai. It's a perfect break with scorching temperatures, hot sands and hot sea's. I always stop over in Jumeirah for a few days when traveling long - haul indulging in some luxury!   I had to create a collection that incorporates the glam of Dubai with some KG pattern style.
Jewel, Ash and Sombre make up the Mix n Match 13 collection. Drawing influences from Arabian architecture, dark nights and nature, 13 captures snippets of an opulent colour palette represented through a rich aubergine and teal. Below is Jewel and Sombre Wallpaper.

SURFACE PATTERN COLLABORATION WITH BLIK \\ LA

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
