Today we launch Flora Hysterica – a wallpaper collection in collaboration with Swedish textiles artist and fashion designer Martin Bergström. The wallpaper collection contains five unique wallpaper patterns all borne of the thousands of preserved plants in Martin Bergström’s herbarium. By the age of three, Martin Bergström already knew the definitive book on Nordic flora, Den Nordiska Floran, inside and out, and his fascination with flowers has only grown. His intense interest in flora has manifested into a consistently expanding collection of preserved plants. Recently, it has come to include over 1000 flowers, with the oldest originating from the early 19th century.“A flower picked roughly 200 years ago becomes like a time capsule pressed between the sheets of paper. I see this wallpaper collection as an opportunity for one small flower to bloom yet again and continue its timeline,” says Martin Bergström.
“I mainly draw clothing prints and have seen one flowery trend after another.I've drawn many flowers, but this time I had the opportunity to do as I liked instead of it being more about drawing the “right” type of flower print like with other projects.I felt it was important to draw two wallpaper motifs that are similar enough to go together but are not so similar that they are no longer distinctive – it should be like they are in the same film in some way,” says Designer Iwa Herdensjö.The collection, which features a playful mix of colours – wine, bright pink and turquoise – has a clear personal touch, as evident when Iwa reveals how the collection got its name:“Dare is the name of the colour of lipstick I have worn almost every day for seven years, so you could say it's a signature of sorts.”Iwa has a clear idea of which of the extravagant patterns she would choose for her own home and even which room she would put them in:“I would choose the orange/pink colour option of Stunner Peachy for the hallway.Personally, I see both motifs working exceptionally well in hallways.A wallpaper that confidently stands out guarantees a warm welcome or goodbye – depending on how you look at it," says Iwa Herdensjö.The exclusive Dare collection is only available at Photowall and consists of two motifs in five colour options. The motifs are available as made-to-measure wallpaper for £28 per square metre.
The flowery Dare collection explodes with colour and is once again characterized by the Swedish designer’s personal and extravagant style.The motifs we’ve added to our product range Blaze and Stunner – are both available in five colour options, and each is filled with loads of big flowers in a colour scheme that truly stands out. Simply put – it’s a colour burst on your wall!Take a look at the motifs and see our new Iwa faves below.In 2018 we’ll be seeing more large patterns and colourful designs in both fashion and interior design, which is why we are especially pleased to present Blaze – a motif that falls in line with this growing trend. The playful mix of bright pink, turquoise, and the trendy colour, wine, is perfect if you are looking to create a space that stands out from the rest. Try combining the motif with loads of flowers and plants for a true colour explosion.
Photowall is proud to present the Tiny Heroes wallpaper collection for children – created by the Swedish design studio Garbo & Friends. The collection consists of three timeless patterns where every motif tells a story.Garbo & Friends have designed quality products for families with children since 2011. In their wallpaper collection Tiny Heroes, the classic patterns of Mares, Fauna and Bows have been customised for walls to give your home a warm atmosphere."The patterns in the collection were all inspired by animals and nature, and all the illustrations have their own story. The design process starts with several weeks of reflecting, where I channel my experiences and inspiration into a concept. Based on this, I usually write a story that will later be the starting point for the pattern, and ultimately, what becomes communicated visually," says Susann Karlsson Nemirovsky, Designer and Founder of Garbo & Friends.It was during a forest walk in the Småland region of Sweden that the colours of the rowan trees and leaves, paired with the animals of the forest, became the inspiration for the Fauna motif. The Mares motif is a tribute to the ocean. It tells a story of discovering sea life for the very first time – with all its vibrant colours and amazing aquatic animals. In the third motif called Bows, playful bows in muted colours reflect the lively imagination and joy of children.Function and durability was a clear focus in this collaboration, and the Tiny Heroes collection has achieved this through a timeless design that works in any home. That which is classic and timeless becomes naturally sustainable, and therefore, our focus has been on quality, the choice of materials and muted colours."Garbo & Friends felt like the natural choice when Photowall wanted to launch a new children's collection because, like us, they are passionate about design and quality. The target group forTiny Heroes is primarily families around the world who have children, but the wallpapers will also work well in the hallway of a big-city apartment or a summer cottage in the country," says Amber Johnson, Photowall's Product and Design Manager.The exclusive Tiny Heroes collection is only available at Photowall and consists of three motifs in different colour schemes. All the motifs are available as made-to-measure wallpaper for £29 per square metre.

Stina Wirsén’s creations can be described as colourful and diverse. They’re her great joy, passion and therapy. It all started in 1968, when Stina Wirsén was one year old and clutched a pen for the first time. A single moment, and that was it: a lifelong acquaintance and a future career. That day was followed by a degree from the Stockholm University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, illustrations in daily newspapers in areas ranging from politics to fashion, public art exhibits in Sweden and the world – and, of course, a multitude of children’s books. And she’s still going strong.I love creating. I haven’t let go since the first time I lifted a pen. Drawing is my second language – sometimes even my first. It’s best when it revives childhood memories of building and sewing at home with my sister in Älvsjö, says Stina Wirsén.

As we gently roll into the brighter days of spring, the winter echoes of hygge become fainter. Instead, the Swedish term “lagom” lingers on the lips of bloggers and throughout the online design community, shifting focus towards finding the perfect balance in Scandinavian interior design – not too much, not too little. The Scandinavian style remains at the forefront of current trends, with its clean lines, playful pops of colour and unforgiving sense of class – and we expect this design concept to continue to grow in popularity. Join us as we explore how Scandinavian interiors adapt to the changing seasons, and how to bring this minimalist style into your own home this spring. Use wall art for a splash of colourArt remains a core component of modern Scandinavian homes. Whether those are retro-inspired wall prints or ultra-modern furniture, so consider swapping out any dark-hued designs with brighter counterparts this spring. If you’ve been living Scandi for a while, it’s likely your home comprises of a mostly monochrome colour palette – so inject vivid accent colours such as red, green, yellow or orange to make the colours pop against a neutral background and welcome spring in style.
