Watercolour trend on wallpaper

Posted By Gudy Herder / January 15, 2014 / 12 Comments

I have been wanting to write a post about wallpaper for quite some time since I have discovered some beautiful watercolours designs, so this collaboration with Photowall came in very handy. Watercolours are trending!

I am collecting beautiful watercolour images on my Pinterest board which is growing slowly and get really inspired by so many talented artists. Furthermore you find watercolours on fabrics, rugs, lamp shades, stationary and many products more.

These watercolour patterns above are designed for wallpaper by Photowall, a Swedish company I particularly like because they work with stylists for some shots (and you can see on their site that makes a difference) and do collaborate with illustrators and designers.

Photowall offers more than 3000 motifs, all are environmentally friendly, and 40 designers all over the world…

…one of their most creative collaborations has probably been the one with Stockholm-based agency Agent Bauer and five talented illustrators such as Martin Bergström, Maja Sten, Cecilia Carlstedt, Clara Aldén and Graham Samuels. Take a peak here.

If you had your own watercolour design or any other image, you can turn them into a wall mural since they will offer that print service for you. That could be a serious thought, couldn’t it? Do you have any watercolor designed objects?

    Hi Gudy,

    ich bin ein Tapeten-Fan. Es gibt richtig schöne Dessins. Diese hier kannte ich noch nicht und finde sie super. LG

    Oh I LOVE these, I just love the organic nature of them. I’ve add them to by sourcebook for reference. Thank you Gudy.

    Gudy, perhaps I come from a different planet (well kind of) but here, I’m taken by surprise – yes of course, water colours! Beautiful, gentile and elegant. Always appreciate your trend reports. Mel xx

    Que bonito! Me encanta! Y nada tendencioso ni visto por todas partes!
    Que gran idea!

    A mi la pintura a la acuarela me chifla desde joven. Sería una buena idea para dar vida a rincones y a paredes vacias!

    Y además gracias por alegrarme y llenar el día de colores!!!

    So pleased you have featured Photowall Gudy-I love what they do. I did a course last year (a bit disappointing) with watercolour and have been thinking of some ideas for this. I saw your pinterest pics and re-pinned them-all SO beautiful. A lovely idea that I can’t wait to do something with-who knows when though!!! ;-) Super-fabulous post lovely xx

    Isn’t this a great idea? I have a friend, who is a printer and he also does prints on fabric… I have been thinking of a cabinet with ‘watercolor’ curtains… Thank you for sharing, dear Gudy… This makes me want to realize my idea even more!

    Hmmm, interesting. Not sure how I feel about watercolours on wallpaper.

    Thank you for sharing and making me reflect on this!
