Illustrated Wallpapers

It's hard not to notice, as you flick through the interiors magazines a trend for illustrated Wallpapers. Harlequin's identity range includes two fantastic designs. The Acacia design is based on famous lighting designs, including the artichoke lamp by Poul Henningsen, in beautiful retro colourways.


The Brighton wallpaper is a wonderful collection of Victorian house fronts, naively illustrated but with the odd punch of colour in retro hues. As you can see both of these wallpapers fit perfectly with the Eames and Sarrinen furniture that I love!

Little Greene also produce a wonderful monochrome version called Hampstead shown here in Ink, If you fancy a bit of colour, they also produce it in 4 other shades - Cloister, Cool Grey, James Blue and Yellow.

If you're interested, the desk shown in this image happens to be an Ercol for John Lewis design called Treviso created by Matthew Hilton.

If you're interested in modernist architectural illustrations then take a look at Mini Modern's 'Festival' wallpaper shown here in the Concrete colourway, designed as a celebration of the enduring influence of the 1951 Festival of Britain. It features abstract drawings of the The Royal Festival Hall, the iconic Skylon, the Dome of Discovery and the Transport pavilion. It also comes in 'Bunting Blue and Red' and 'Stone' colourways. This wallpaper would add a lovely modernist look to any home.
