Feathers Wallpaper by Mini Moderns

feathers wallpaper in chalkhill by Mini Moderns

I am a huge fan of Mini Moderns and I really admire the approach that Keith and Mark take towards their work. I had the opportunity to interview Keith a while back and finding out more about the brand and how the guys work really did just cement Mini Moderns’ position in my list of favourite interior brands. I particularly like the way that they produce wallpaper, paint and soft furnishings in colourways that co-ordinate with one another making it particularly easy to create a look that works without having to spend hours colour matching. So I was really happy to see a new collection of wallpaper joining the Mini Moderns arsenal in all the great colours that we have become accustomed to from previous designs. ‘Feathers‘ is the third wallpaper design in the Mini Moderns ‘Hinterland’ collection, which takes inspiration from the nature reserve of Dungeness, on the South Kent coast.  Read More…

Remixed Wallpaper by Arthur Slenk for NLXL

Remixed Wallpaper by Arthur Slenk for NLXL

I’ve been meaning to post this amazing wallpaper for months but sadly it has sat gathering dust in my drafts folder. It wasn’t until I saw my friend Ashley Sutcliffe of Live Like The Boy mention that he was now stocking it that I remembered that I had wanted to share it with you guys in a wallpaper Wednesday post. Hurrah! I’ve finally got round to it! Don’t all pat me on the back at once okay? The Remixed wallpaper collection is the result of the unique collaboration between Arthur Slenk and the Dutch Wallpaper company NLXL. Read More…

Magnetic Wallpaper from Nubie

Sian Zeng Dino Pink Green Wallpaper2

It’s been a while since my last wallpaper post and I have a real treat for you today in the form of this whimsical magnetic wallpaper from Nubie. The collection has been designed by Sian Zeng, an award winning London-based designer specialising in wallpapers, interior accessories and gifts. Sian graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and won Elle Decoration’s Young Talent of the Year Awards 2010/11. Her charming illustrated prints are designed to encourage playfulness and ignite imaginations and that is exactly what this magnetic children’s wallpaper collection does. It comes in two delightful narratives called Dino and Woodland and is available in a range of contemporary colourways. The best bit though is that because it is magnetic children can act out their own stories by moving a cast of magnetic creatures across the wallpaper. Kids can also personalise the story further by using the write-on speech bubbles to include quirky quotes. But how does magnetic wallpaper work exactly? It’s actually pretty simple. You just need to hang the supplied magnetic liner underneath the wallpaper design to create an interactive and magical surface. The downside? Well, magnetic wallpaper certainly doesn’t come cheap at £248 a roll. But if it’s the design you like, the paper is also available in a non-magnetic version for a fraction of the cost.

The Amazing Sculptures of Frank Plant

Frank Plant Sculpture

Hi folks, today I’m just popping in quickly to introduce you to the stunning work of artist Frank Plant. An American sculptor based in Barcelona in Spain, Frank creates some really amazing pieces using welded steel. Frank studied sculpture at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 1993, after finishing his B.A. in fine arts he moved to Amsterdam where he began to develop his drawings in steel. His work at this time constituted simple and direct studies of the forms and compositions of everyday objects and situations. Then in 1999 Plant moved again, this time to Barcelona and he began to diversify the materials he uses in his sculpture. However, welded steel has always been the principal medium for Frank’s work, whether in his two dimensional pieces or his earlier three dimensional kinetic metal sculptures that incorporate found objects. Below you can see some images of Frank’s work along with some comments about his approach. Enjoy! Read More…

Unique Wall Decals from Vinyl Impression

Vinyl Impression Wall Decal -Dont-Worry3 Today’s post is all about vinyl wall decals. Now this is a slightly controversial issue for me because I really like the idea of wall decals but I rarely find any that I would be happy to use in my own home. The reason I like the idea is that they are very versatile and allow you to add a bit of character to your home in a temporary way. They can be used by renters and people who are not able to decorate in a more permanent way as well as by homeowners and some of them can be repositioned. The issue I have though is that I rarely like the designs that they come in. So when I received a press release from Vinyl Impression I wasn’t expecting to see anything particularly original and I almost hit delete. But I’m very glad that I didn’t or I would never have discovered their uniquely designed products from The Joy Press. Read More…

Rebel Walls Wallpaper & Murals

Rebelwalls wallpaper

It’s been a while since I posted about wallpaper but I’ve been rather distracted by all the new AW14 Home collections that have been coming out recently. Then as I was browsing my rather hefty drafts folder I remembered this great company that I had bookmarked for a post. Rebel Walls is a Swedish wallpaper company with its own design studio and production headquarters in Borås. It offers a wide range of designer wallpaper but also offers the opportunity for customers to create their own patterns tailored to their requirements, both in terms of dimensions and design. Irene and Christofer Gimmersta, the founders behind Rebel Walls, are no beginners in terms of wallpaper. Part of the Gimmersta group, they have extensive experience in the wallpaper industry and are behind a number of wallpaper brands available in the market today. Their vision for Rebel Walls, which launched in Spring 2013, was to revolutionise the wallpaper industry by taking a step away from the idea of traditional collections linked to long-running collection books. I think it is safe to say that they have achieved their goal!

Updating Tiles with Coloured Grout

British Ceramic Tile Metro Tiles and Coloured Grout I dream of the day when I can afford to redo my bathroom and my kitchen. The guy who owned our flat before us clearly believed that he was qualified to renovate the place…oh how wrong he was. I’ve never seen such poor quality workmanship and being the design addict that I am makes this a pretty bitter pill to swallow. The kitchen and bathroom are two of the most important rooms in the house, and unfortunately these are also the worst rooms in our house. And being the most expensive to change, I’m afraid we’re stuck with ours for a while to come. But when that day does come, I intend to make sure that we make a statement. Our bathroom is really tiny so we’ll probably have to go with white tiles to maximise the feeling of space and light but I want to avoid it looking too clinical. Then yesterday I received an email from British Ceramic Tile all about using coloured grout.
