Styling Murals Wallpaper – Home Bar DesignJune 2019
We are really tired of the miserable weather we are currently having in the UK so we thought we would brighten up your screen with some daring wallpaper and some colour!
Arte has always been one of our go to suppliers for wallpaper as the quality and patterns are second to none. We chose to style up the Menagerie of Extinct Animals, focusing on the muted greens and oranges running throughout the pattern. This has a whimsical feel which we complemented with vintage pieces like the brass table and cushions on the chair from Trouva.
Fancy yourself a new home bar design? We have you covered this week with some inspiration from the wonderful Murals Wallpaper. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Henri Matisse, Murals Wallpaper have brought out a collection called ‘Naive Shapes’ which references Matisse’s later work. The wallpaper is fun, fresh and perfect for a bar area. Using the wallpaper as inspiration we have drawn from the funky shapes and muted colours to create a sleek and mid-century feeling look. Using a wallpaper like this will make a focal point within your interior and a fabulous backdrop for any room.
The wallpaper was inspired by Henri Matisse’s later work when ill health meant he created his artwork using paper cut-outs. This inspiration gives a playful look to the wallpaper. Check out the full collection here.
All accessories were sourced from Amara.
The key when styling a bold wallpaper is to pick some of the more dominant colours and use these within your scheme to create a coordinated look. Green has been on trend for the last few years and we still love using this colour in the interiors that we design even if they don’t include a daring wallpaper! Playing with texture will give depth to your look. We chose to use a lot of velvet as this balanced the heavy furniture and almost vintage feel of the wallpaper. Look at the tones within the wallpaper; this wallpaper lent itself well to brass but a more cool toned paper may look great with polished chrome of silver.
