    Sneak peek: stunning textiles and wallpaper

    by  • Wednesday, January 14, 2015 • Look what I found • 1 Comment

    Designer Louise Body is launching a fresh new collection of wallpapers and fabrics this month called Peggy. The geometric and abstract patterns are inspired by 20th century artists who produced simple, hand blocked prints. Made up of four wallpaper designs and nine printed fabrics, they have been designed to work in harmony together within the same scheme. What do you think of the lovely muted colour palette?

    I love the photography as it’s full of application ideas! Upholster the seat pad on a vintage stool, make a display with framed wallpaper, use below a picture rail or make into cushions. The designs are stunning and would work well in a bedroom, living room or dining room. Launching officially at Maison et Objet in Paris this month you will be able to buy from her website shortly.

    I’ve always had a bit of a thing for pegboard. I just wish I’d come up with this idea…

    pegboard

    This updated pegboard concept comes from Swiss born designer, Nikki Kreis of Kreisdesign. Made up of a simple birch plywood panel with sturdy holes you can customise with pegs (choose from straight or round head), mini clipboards and shelves that slot in to suit your storage needs. They can also be cut to size to fit any awkward space. Perfect for a kid’s room, the kitchen, office or hallway. Prices start from £124. LOVE!
