We are back from Maison & Objet!

Hello everyone,

WALPA is back from Maison & Objet 2016 in Paris.

We have seen many new exciting wallpaper and products.

Some booths were real standouts and today I would like to focus on one brand in particular Koziel.

Coming from the theatre and stage design world the French designer’s flair to create atmospheres and ambiances is outstanding.

His booths are always a delight to visit and totally immersive. This is like being in a different world, completely disconnected from the outside world.

 

This year Christophe Koziel, the designer and owner of the company, has decided to introduce a whole new collection called Fantomatik.

Born from his love for inhabited spaces this new collection of fabrics, rugs, lunch mats and wallpaper is based on distressed tin tiles, herringbone and wooden patterns.

The extensive range of patterns, sizes and materials allows for an unlimited amount of possibilities.

 

The collection is not finished yet and may be subjected to some changes.

Just a taste of things to come.

The kids’ room in our new office.

Hi folks,

Today I thought I would report on yesterday’s work in the kids room.

After preparing the surface we had the pleasure to install this beautiful wallpaper from Hibou Home.

Hibou Home is a British brand specialized in creating children’s wallpaper and fabric that’s not only inspiring and fun but looks fabulous too. The wallpaper collection is sophisticated and inspired by timeless themes children know and love.

Cool and stylish designs perfect for children young and old. The color palette is dusky, muted and yet up to date.

 

The design we have chosen for the ceiling of our kids room is the Stars one.

I thought you would love to see a bit of behind the scenes so here you are.

Stay tune for the images of the full installation and of the kids room.

Fall selection.

Good afternoon to all wallpaper lovers.

 

The wind gets cooler and cooler, the days are shorter and the temperature is dropping.

Fall is definitely upon us.

With the weather getting more pleasant this is a great time for DIY projects.

How about some redecorating and wallpaper hanging?

I have selected a few wallcoverings that definitely smell of Fall.

 

Back from the European 60’s / 70’s here is some soothing vintage wallpaper.

Retro wallpaper is back and a fine addition to your interior.

Looking for something a bit warmer?

Mineheart lovable wallpaper collection is an unique blend of modernism and tradition.

Every piece si carefully crafted to inspire, tell a story, express a poetic notion or just make us smile.

The brand name itself is rooted in Shakespearian English and reinforce the playfulness of the British design studio.

A few of their new products:

 

persian_dark-m

 

persian_seledine-m

 

grey-turquoise-panelling-m

 

Daniel Heath has a fascination for the weird and the wonderful and it shows in his designs.

For instance these seemingly beautiful birds are in fact pinned, stuffed and preserved in static macabre.

 

taxidermy-birds-tangerine-m

 

The wonder and spectacle of the circus and the whimsical imagery of Victorian inspires Daniel’s Amazing Jumbo design.

Peer inside the big top style illustration and see horses and elephants playfully perform.

 

amazing-jumbo-olive-m

 

At last but not least here is Hannah Nunn.

Her Beech Leaves wallpaper is inspired by a rainy morning walk when she sheltered under a low hanging beech canopy.

” I loved the way the light shone through the leaves to create overlapping shadows.”

The ink has  a subtle sheen and really is beautiful when it catches the light.

 

beechleaves-mint-m

 

Paper Meadow is a wistful, dreamy meadow full of grasses, cow parsleys and dandelions clocks.

A nice touch for this Fall decoration.

 

papermeadow-charcoal-m

 

papermeadow-charcoal-sub02-b

 

There is of course so much more wallpaper choice so come over.

Check out WALPA!!!

 

 

 

 

Brand focus.

Hi folks,

Today I would like to focus on one of my favorite brand Little Owl from the Netherlands.

Little Owl’s world is quite unique and totally unlike any other and cannot quite be compared.

The wallpaper is complementary to the rest of their work.

Mixing tradition and new technologies this wallpaper series is organic, subtle and original.

The collection is really hard to describe and it is better to let you check it by yourself.

Enjoy and don’t forget to drop by WALPA and check out the real thing in our stores!

City life can be stressful at times and you may be looking for a shelter.

You may live in NYC, Paris, London or Tokyo after all this is the same.

City life can be hectic and stressful and you may need a quiet and soothing place to unwind after a hard day at work.

Home is where you should be looking to be, somewhere to ease your mind, soul and heart.

For some it will be warm and cozy, for others it will be bold and brash.

Here are a few designs to inspire you (I hope).

 

Starting with the increasingly popular Erstwhile series from Milton&King:
