Cosmopolitan living: Interiors inspired by the city
Falling in love with a city can happen on far flung holidays, romantic city breaks or right on home ground, channeling inspiration which allows us to dream of interiors with a touch of boldness - and to explore new directions and perspectives.
This digitally printed mural wallpaper, designed by Bo Lundberg, is a striking retro-style graphic design depicting the iconic junk boat of Hong Kong. The cool picture-postcard design and its retro composition will transport you back to 1978.
The mural is 2.7m in height and is supplied as two panels, each 100cm wide.
The loft apartment of our dreams, with exposed brickwork and enormous arched windows. You can recreate this atmosphere with the hyper-realistic Durham Brick wallpaper which works in any space requiring an industrial look. Unfortunately, we can’t help you with these gorgeous windows but we do recommend painting all your woodwork in black. Albany Soot Print will do the job.
City breaks are full sightseeing and soaking up the style of the culture you’re adventuring through. Bring home the romance of a long, hot summer weekend with this amazing painterly image of the roofs and buildings of Valldemossa in Mallorca. Try placing this wallpaper above a dado rail to allow space for the furniture below and so not to overwhelm the room.
Opulent and atmospheric, this fascinating design showcases a dramatic and iconic scene. Featuring an etched landscape design believed to be inspired by London’s Royal Exchange; shown in a mirrored effect for added drama. This would sit beautifully inside panelling, like works of art.
This linocut design has a soft, relaxing vibe as it pays homage to the historic architecture of Sweden’s capital city. Overlaid buildings in a mixture of scales jostle for attention to create a playful, higgledy-piggledy design, spot the cheerful cyclist and flowing river in this beautifully coloured wallpaper. A lovely choice in a kitchen or to spark the imagination in a child’s play space.
Gone are the days when concrete appeared raw and unappealing, it is increasingly being being incorporated with elegance and style into interior design. This wallpaper shown above on the right has a realistic distressed concrete effect featuring cracks and texture to create an authentic urban feel.
Finally, lets celebrate the suburbs! This classic Mini Moderns design, shown on the right below, is a pattern with a story, paying tribute to the post-war suburban housing and the of the era of glorious mid-century design and fashion which still looks so cool today.
