• Hot interior design trends for summer 2015

    31 July, 2015

    From relaxed graphics, architectural geometrics and blurred lines to heavy greys paired with sugary sweet pastels – this summer’s interior trends are about celebrating individuality and juxtaposition. Gravitating towards the reflection of personal experiences rather than reflecting catwalk trends and stylish swatches, this season’s hot interior trends were not that easy to predict.

    Here, we explore how to get touches of this summer’s interior trends in your home in simple ways.

    Powerful patterns

    This season has seen a major influx in geometric prints and beautiful bold patterns. Embrace the geo angles and give your home edgy ultra-modern accents. Mid-century modern is a key style this season and geometric prints work well paired with 1950s teak furniture – an era of abstract patterns and beautifully bold colours.

    Give some power to the pattern and try using Marble 2.0 wall mural with white walls and white floors for a show-stopping interior.

    Raw reclaimed

    Encapsulating the stripped-back feel of an industrial warehouse – the raw reclaimed trend features timeworn materials taken from their original source. Bare wire work and plated metals are all bang on trend this summer, with people embracing a newfound love for reclaimed wood.

    Feature walls provide the perfect opportunity to feature the reclaimed wood trend without making major adjustments to your home. Photowall’s Old Wooden Wall looks stunning as a wall mural – pair with faux fur throws and wire candles to make a trendy statement in your home.

    Wonderful watercolours

    Adding a sophisticated flush of colour and softening the usual monochrome palettes – waterborne effects are everywhere this summer. Deriving from the ombre trend a few years back, the watercolour interior trend is fantastic for statement pieces and accent walls.

    Try pairing watercolours with other styles in your home. Combing a bold graphic pattern with stripes and chevron complements individual details of fabrics – watercolour print cushions are the perfect soft furnishing to add a touch of this summer’s biggest interior trend into your home. Wall murals are equally as simple add this style into your home – Photowall’s Colour puddle wall mural looks stunning as a statement wall in your bedroom.

  • Passion for pineapple

    11 June, 2015

    iwaherdensjö-pineapple-wallpaper-photowallLately 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.

    iwaherdensjö-pineapple-wallpaper-photowallWe all love this fruit, and when you think about it – it’s not that strange. A juicy, exotic fruit that make us dream of summer and foreign worlds.

    NUAgency_pineapple_ wallpaper_PhotowallThe 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.

    pineapple_collageNowadays you see the pineapple everywhere. The sources to this collage you can find on our Pinterest account Passion for pineapple (you follow us on Pinterest, right?).

    Pineapple_Rina Donnersmarck_Photowall_bloggThis motif is called “Pineapple” and is designed by the German illustrator Rina Donnersmarck. Perfect in a kids room or maybe in your kitchen.

    IwaHerdensjö_abacaxi_dust_photowallFor someone who like the motifs a little more abstract Swedish designer Iwa Herdensjös  “Abacaxi” might be the perfect choice.

    NUAgency_wildatheart_photowallPineapples are also hiding in NU Agencys motif “Wild at heart“. Beautiful, isn’t it?
