The summer seems to be on hold in Stockholm at the moment, and while the rain is pouring down, we take the time to do some changes in our homes. A good idea if you don’t want to change the room completely, is to wallpaper your wardrobes. Perfect if you find a wallpaper that you love, but might feel it’s too much for a whole room. On the pictures we’ve used Wild in my garden, designed by Peppercookies.
Summer has finally arrived to Stockholm and to our wallpaper factory. When we’re not at the office or out taking a swim, we prepare for summer parties. We serve ice cream and pink lemonade, and of course we decorate the party with wallpaper. On the pictures you see two of our favourite motifs, perfect for decoration. Confetti and Triangle Brush – designed by the Swedish designerstudio By May.
Classic art has always amazed and inspired us. Here on Photowall we take it a little bit further and wallpaper our walls with one of our favourite artists – Vincent van Gogh. A perfect wallpaper to inspire you all day in your studio, or maybe to make your livingroom to something extra ordinary. Almond Blossom is one of our favourite motifs out of Vincent van Goghs collection, and is available as both wall mural and canvas print. Do you have another Vincent van Gogh favourite? Take a look at all our van Gogh motifs, and maybe you’ll find the one you love most.
The lightest nights of the summer are here. We pick flowers to place beneath cushions, weave garlands, gorge ourselves on strawberries and decorate the table with wallpaper. Tablecloths, placemats and other creative decorations made from wallpaper – there are many ways to make your party into a multi-coloured Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Warm Midsummer greetings
We asked her to share a bit of what inspires her at the moment, and if you want to check it out, head over to Pinspiration gust pinner gallery.
Lately we’ve seen the pineapple everywhere in the interior world. On posters, pillow cases, lamp foots – you name it. Photowall of course is a big fan of the trend and for the brave we have wallpapers to decorate the walls with this beautiful fruit.
The fascination of pineapples started back in the 15th century. At the time it was a rare and very expensive fruit, and therefore it became a symbol of wealth and hospitality. At dinners people decorated the tables with pineapples to show their status. The architects at the time was not late to embrace the popularity of the fruit. They used the shape for textiles, lamps and even buildings.
This motif is called “Pineapple” and is designed by the German illustrator Rina Donnersmarck. Perfect in a kids room or maybe in your kitchen.
For someone who like the motifs a little more abstract Swedish designer Iwa Herdensjös “Abacaxi” might be the perfect choice.
Pineapples are also hiding in NU Agencys motif “Wild at heart“. Beautiful, isn’t it?
Yesterday we loved the owl, today the pineapple. What do you think will be the next big trend?
Photowall launches a children’s collection by German illustrator Rina Donnersmarck. Fruit and dream-like forests are some of the motifs in the collection.
The collection is available exclusively from Photowall and comprises eight motifs. The motifs are available as made-to-measure wall murals costing £35 per square metre.
Photowall is launching a wall mural collection with graffiti designs by some of Sweden’s leading street artists. The collection is a collaboration with the Stockholm-based art gallery, Wallery.
Gouge, Skil, Huge, RCW and Dotse are the artists behind Photowall and Wallery’s new wall mural collection. Traditional graffiti is blended with graphical street art, urban portraits and photorealistic graffiti. The designs were created on walls at Photowall’s mural factory during the spring, to then end up in the printing presses. Pictured above, a design by Dotse.
The collection is available exclusively from Photowall and comprises five motifs. All the motifs can be ordered as made-to-measure wall murals costing £31 per square metre. To see how the wall murals were created – watch our film from the project.

To get some new inspiration and look for the latest interior design trends, we visited the Salone del Mobile fair in Milan – one of the world’s largest and most famous furniture and design fairs. Here are some of the trends we picked up:
The green trend continues and we want to fill our rooms with everything from winding ivy to large bamboo trees and various cactuses. Put the plants in different and unexpected places in the room and most preferably: let them hang in hanging pots.
We draw inspiration from the 70s and materials that we will see more and more of is: velvet, leather, brass with really shiny surfaces and marble in green and brown shades. Materials that create a luxurious and elegant feel.
In contrast to the shiny surfaces are textured surfaces. Patinated, veined, marbled and perforated surfaces. We will also continue to see a lot of natural materials like: cork, wood, rattan, bark, bamboo and rope – traditional raw materials. We will also see a lot of untreated wood and leather, preferably in combination. Brick and stone with a natural and somewhat raw appearance is also on its way.
We will see a lot of playful, colorful and humorous design that flirts with pop culture and sports in the future. Memphis pattern, terrazzo patterns and spots, squares and dots that are a bit higgledy-piggledy. We will also see a lot of glass and Plexiglas, both in color and clear and preferably in a delightful mix.
It’s time to turn our eyes to the floor. We will see a lot of patterned wooden floor and tiled floor in different colors, but above all: patterned carpets. Everything from graphic to photorealistic designs that create an exciting effect.
The biggest upcoming trend color is undoubtedly red, bright red shades that combines nicely with black and white. But also dirty pastels lingers – matched nicely to concrete gray, untreated natural wood and blond woods.
