Most of us have a Pinterest board or two dedicated to Scandinavian inspired homes. You do don’t you? And most of those homes will be light and open spaces with white walls, pale wood and a clean aesthetic. But (and you might already know this), Scandinavian designers do and have done pattern down the ages too. Boråstapeter Scandinavian Designers 11 collection is a timeless collection of designs that typifies Scandinavian wallpaper design. Our Nordic cousins are well known for filling their interior spaces with things inspired by nature (wouldn’t you if you were confined to the indoors for months at a time?) and their pattern designs are no different. All of the patterns in this collection have a natural, colourful and imaginative touch that make them a perfect compliment to the understated, classic and contemporary Scandinavian interior decor scheme.
Berså is a rhythmical design of stylized leaves loved by the Swedish. First used on Stig Lindberg’s popular chinaware in the 1960’s and considered an iconic design in Swedish homes. On the wall, Berså has a clean, retro feel,with a fresh bold look that would work really well for many rooms in the home. As well as adding a pop of colour and Scandi style.
Aurora wallpaper is a Lisbet Job design. Grand, bold, and yet supremely elegant.
