MARBLE TREND 2017

So I love a bit of marbling and the trend for this has been huge with the interiors world. Recently I have been working in the print studio creating some beautiful marbling patterned prints. The colours and spontaneity behind the process is magical. I have been working on some of the prints digitally and I am  sketching out some some wallpaper ideas. Mismatch marble is on its way....keep your eyes peeled for further updates. Below are a few of my prints from experimentation. #onpoint

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.

A3 Screenprint Shop Open!

It has been refreshing to get back in the printroom to create some beautiful screen prints. We have designed a limited run of neon Electric Pink and Electric Orange A3  prints onto Fabriano paper. Being massive fans of neon, screenprinting allows us to explore techniques that digital can't. We are working on some hand drawn screen prints which will explore pearl binders with metallics and golds along with some bright pops of colour! Shop our current limited edition A3 prints for £45.00 with free postage worldwide. Please do contact us if you have any questions.

LDF 2016

We were delighted to work with 100% Design and Forster Inc this year for London Design Festival. We got to share a sneak peak into our latest Mix n Match 17 wallpaper collection which will be coming soon. Our collaboration with Forster Inc brought together an Interiors Consultancy and Surface Pattern Design Studio working together to create a beautiful installation of our varied range of wallpapers. Please visit the studio to see the installation which will be up for 3 months. They are based on Redchurch Street, Shoreditch.

Green & Pink Swoon

We are loving a green and pink interiors combination this month! Our Mountain Green and Fold Greenwallpapers from our Basics range offer different shades of the same colour. Iso from our Mix 'n Matchrange is a subtle version of pastel pink. Either paired together on adjacent walls or pasted separately this colour combination is thumbs up!

Clerkenwell Design Week May 2016
