The Tie Dye Takeover Comes to Wallpaper for Summer

Tie dye is back on the design scene making waves in the fashion industry, and these radical tie dye wallpapers are bringing the revamped style to the home in a modern, zestful way.

Opinion-dividing design

Searches for tie dye have increased by nearly 200% since the beginning of the year, making it one of the most sought after fashion styles of 2019. Prada, Stella McCartney, Chloé and Dior are only a few of the designer fashion brands that have been launching the trend to massive popularity with creative runway pieces that revive tie dye. 

And now, after just entering the world of food and drink with the Starbucks tie dye frappuccino release, the opinion-dividing design is also moving into modern interiors in a fittingly eye-catching way with this bold collection of wall designs by MuralsWallpaper.

Punchy, vivid colours inspired by acid washes are elevating tie dye and making it look fresh for its comeback this year. The bright colours of these murals move away from garish festival colour combos of centuries past, and into a lush style that feels rejuvenated with currently coveted colours.

Peace-Pink-Lifestyle-3-Web.jpg

Ice cold tie dye

These daring wall designs by MuralsWallpaper have been created using ice, rather than the expected tied cloth pieces. In this method, dye is dusted over ice as its sitting on the fabric and then left to work its magic as it melts. The result is something a bit different from traditional tie dye that makes the iconic look more liveable for a home.

The dye designs for these wall murals were created by hand to hold on to the organic, hand-crafted appeal of tie dye. The reason that many suspect tie dye and custom-made murals are exciting the design world right now is that people want something more one-of-a-kind for their wardrobe and home.

This collection is ideal for daring decorators with a passion for colour, flair and the bold. But even homeowners who would usually be very safe and minimal with their interiors can seize this chance to embrace the joyous return of nostalgic tie dye, with a now more high-design identity. 

Love it or loathe it, tie dye is back in a big way.

The Peace and Festival murals are £36.00 per square metre.

Bert & May Launches Eco-Friendly Paint Collection

Bert & May has launched a new environmentally-friendly paint collection with 48 shades inspired by the Earth’s natural palette. The paints have a rich and chalky finish, and the colours complement Bert & May’s full range of products – including the handmade tile collections, basins and kitchens.

Paint Pot Group_24_1.jpg

The majority of our pigments are naturally derived and create the muted, chalky tone for which we are known; much softer than anything synthetic and mass-produced. This is a principle which is not only a very important part of our aesthetic but also to our responsibility to the environment.

Available in Eco-emulsion, Limewash and Eggshell, each colour has 4 variations of shade, achieved through blending different strengths of the same pigment; the more pigment added, the deeper and richer the colour. 

‘We believe that colour has a huge impact on how you feel and live and so it is important to choose those which will not only enrich your interior but also create the right mood. And in telling our own colour story, we also wanted to share the individual connotations and origin of our palette; after all, we are all about the story in our products!’ Bert & May

Playful Pixel Flooring Inspired by the Return of 8-Bit Art

Atrafloor's fun new collection captures trending pixelated design in the form of a modern vinyl flooring named Censor.

Inspired by 8-bit colour graphics and game aesthetics that have a beloved nostalgic quality, Censorbrings this style to flooring for the first time and joins in on the trend that's proving the passion for pixel design isn't dead.

Beautiful Bedrooms With Crown Paints

No room is more personal than the bedroom, a special space to relax and wind-down in. Therefore it is important to create a space that is not only calming but that also looks good. A lick of paint is a great way to give the bedroom a quick and inexpensive update. A new colour palette can be easily changed with different seasons, or as children grow older without much hassle.

Judy Smith, Crown Colour Consultant gives her tips on how to choose the best paint colour for the room:

There are two things to consider when choosing paint. Firstly what style do you want?Is it modern or traditional, fun or more considered? Secondly what is the atmosphere?Clean and spacious, deep and moody, bright and breezy?Whatever your preference the choice of paint really can help fashion both style and atmosphere. For example, a range of Period colours would suit a more traditional look, whilst more earthy tones like dusty pinks and terracottas are more modern. Remember to balance the natural light in the room by using warmer or cooler tones. However, whatever the rules, it's important to go with what you like.

“Our four designs are Fastnet Stripe, a classic nautical design that I was surrounded by in my childhood growing up on the West coast of Ireland; Climbing Chevy, a fun vibrant design in a lovely Radish colour inspired by my days living off Portobello Rd; Cadogan Check, a graphic monochrome design; and Seedling, a gentle yellow pattern that feels fresh and gentle,” explains Tori.


Combining the magical ambience of lighting with her fabrics was an exciting moment for Tori. “Ilove how lampshades illuminate and add an extra dimension of colour and pattern to a room. They can completely transform the feel, from a little sunny shade on a hallway table to glorious glowing shades in a living room and statement hanging pendants or even gentle easy lighting that slips into the background. They can fit into any interior scheme and using our fabrics on lampshades for the first time breathes a new and vibrant life into them.”

Summer Fabric Trend from Vanessa Arbuthnott


It is that time of year when the umbrella-like clusters of white, frothy cow parsley flowers are filling up the roadside, hedgerows and woodland edges. Also called ‘Queen Anne’s Lace’, there are many stories to explain the origins of this name. 

Cow parsley is a hollow-stemmed, tall plant that grows rapidly in the summer before dying back. These flower umbels appear from May until June and grow 60-100 cm high, with spikelets of 2 to 5 flowers in oval clusters, the lowest on long stalks at right angles to the stem. 

Cow parsley simply means an inferior version of real parsley. Here, Vanessa Arbuthnott speaks about the trend and why they the print is a must for your interior design. 

Cowparsley3_va.jpg

“I particularly love the way the flowering stems zoom off at right angles to the main stalk and I have drawn these in my design; along with beautiful fragile butterflies enjoying the cow parsley nectar. I take great pleasure in taking organic shapes on a journey, simplifying, stylizing them and finally colouring the fabrics with no reference to their origins.” 

With Vanessa’s range she now has twelve Cow Parsley fabric colour ways, one wallpaper, tea towels, aprons, washbags and cushions. They are her best-selling fabrics and seem to defy fashion withstanding the test of time. 

Why cow parsley? 

With summer coming up there is no better way to brighten up your home for summer than opting for a cow parsley print. There has been an increase in homeowners purchasing rolls of colourful prints inspired by nature and wildlife. Bold printed wallpapers have become increasingly popular as customers are gaining confidence in their interior choices. In past years, feature walls were a great way to make a statement but with large quantities of printed wallpaper being ordered, a whole room is now becoming lively with detailed prints. 

With cow parsley, the design is a nod to nature, popular wallpaper designs include trees, birds and flowers which have been adapted to fit in a room. Cow parsley brings elements of outdoors in which is perfect to mirror summer colours and atmosphere.

150 Years of Matisse Celebrated With Wallpaper Collection

MuralsWallpaper has launched a collection of cut out wallpaper designs in celebration of 150 years since the birth of Henri Matisse.

The look, colour palette and design approach of the Naive Shapes collection is livable, plays on current colour and design trends, and reflects the simplicity and joyous emotion of Matisse’s own work.

IMG_0073-Web.jpg

The Naive Shapes collection celebrates 150 years of Matisse, taking inspiration from his papiers découpés (paper cutouts). The world-famous painter was born 31st December, 1869.

These candid wallpaper creations by MuralsWallpaper mirror the playfulness of a method that Matisse described as 'drawing with scissors' and 'cutting directly into colour'. 

The crafty cut outs have a nostalgic quality, conjuring up memories of creating paper collages as a child. They embody the fun and focus of spending hours cutting out paper shapes and arranging them in just the right places, resulting in something visually appealing and personal.

Matisse-Blue-Lifestyle-Web.jpg

A year of Matisse

Henri Matisse invented a new medium with his cut out style, and using this he produced some of his most popular works.

Matisse believed that everyone retains a childlike sense of naiveté, no matter how much they study and learn. In the last years of his life, the artist found freedom in creating cut out art, which brought feelings of balance, simplicity and serenity.

Jagged-Lifestyle-Web.jpg

MuralsWallpaper's Matisse-inspired collection aims to echo this naive part of the mind that Matisse speaks of, which is why the designs are hand-made with spontaneous shapes and charming, honest imperfections.

MuralsWallpaper will be releasing two modern mural collections celebrating Matisse's 150th birthday this year with designs that are evokative of his cut out art; also incorporating trending earthy tones and pops of cobalt blue. The second set of designs will launch in September and continue the celebration of Matisse's life and most influential work.

Tom Dixon x Ikea at RHS Chelsea Flower Show

Design Research Studio, the design and innovations agency at the heart of Tom Dixon, has partnered with IKEA to imagine the future of urban farming.

As part of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019, they have designed and realised an experimental model for growing plants in the urban environment.

Tom Dixon and IKEA’s garden, entitled Gardening will Save the World will explore the importance of sustainable growing, looking at the contrast of the hyper-natural and hyper-tech.

unnamed.gif

The garden will demonstrate how people can contribute to the movement of growing food at home and make a difference to reducing food waste, as well as communicating the beauty and functional importance of horticulture, through both traditional knowledge and the latest in growing innovation.

Tom says, 'As part of the Chelsea Flower Show, we have designed and realised an experimental model for growing plants in the urban environment. Aiming to give back to cities and create productive landscapes within urban zones, the garden includes a raised modular landscape with edible and medicinal plants and an enclosed based garden fuelled by hydroponic systems and controllable lighting.’

TD_Chelsea Flower Show_01.jpg

The garden will be split into two levels and will feature over 4,000 plants. The base layer will be a horticultural laboratory where hydroponic technology is implemented, and the raised garden will be a botanic oasis with a natural aesthetic for visitors to immerse themselves in.

During the media preview, the exhibition will also offer an exclusive look at some of the first prototypes that Tom Dixon has designed on urban growing, which will be available globally at IKEA stores in 2021.

After Chelsea Flower Show, the garden will be donated to the charity Participatory City and moved to Barking and Dagenham in East London.
