Inspired by the botanical illustrator Pierre-Joseph Redouté, MuralsWallpaper has created a collection of four vintage floral designs, transforming hand-drawn flowers into stunning murals which make a statement in the home. It is the second time that Redouté drawings have inspired a collection, with the Botanicals range released earlier this year.
There's never been a better time to surround yourself in nature. With no flower shows scheduled, bringing the outside in is key this summer. Even Netflix is getting in on the floral action with the release of their reality show The Big Flower Fight last month. At MuralsWallpaper, a large portion of the top sellers are reflective of nature in some way, and Catherine Jacob, Head of Design, explains why:
"There has been a strong trend in our sales as people create spaces they want to escape or relax in - we've seen an uplift in sales of products inspired by nature as they overtake other design styles."
Each design in the collection has something different to offer. Bagatelle balances delicate pink tones with large scale roses, whilst Losse is a peachy green botanical pattern. Giverny has a palette of very soft desaturated pinks, and Papillion adds serene butterflies to the floral mix. All of the designs stimulate feelings of being in a giant garden surrounded by roses. Scale and statement are a core part of MuralsWallpaper collections, and these designs offer a unique twist on the traditional wallpaper subject of florals, transforming them into large scale murals. Bedrooms and bathrooms are perfect for this collection.
Vintage Florals is the second collection by MuralsWallpaper inspired by Pierre-Joseph Redouté - the first, Vintage Botanicals, is a customer favourite. The lead designer of the florals collection, Jess Howard, explains what inspired her to create the second collection:
"The work of Redouté mixes science with design to produce stunning botanical drawings. Whilst in the last collection, we focused on the plant life designs from his book Les Liliacées, this time, the hand drawn rose designs from the Les Roses collection retain the dramatic, large scale impact in true-to-life floral colour tones to give them a modern update."
Bagatelle, Giverny, Losse and Papillion are all now available online at MuralsWallpaper, priced at £37.00/m2: https://www.muralswallpaper.co.uk/wall-murals/flower-wallpaper-murals/
