Drawing upon nature as her primary source of inspiration, Saga-Mariah Sandberg creates whimsical and detailed illustrations that depict various Swedish nature scenes. Each pattern is delicately painted by hand to reflect nature’s own distinctive range of colours. The designs represent a particular biotope and are evocative of their unique plant and animal life.
The title of the collection, DAWN CHORUS, refers to the morning song of the myriad spring birds of the forests, a choir of life that sets the mood for the entire collection. All of the motifs are designed with the colours distinct to nature’s vibrant palette and draw from historical nature sites of majestic Swedish landscapes.
Saga-Mariah Sandberg's wallpaper patterns let us not only experience the beauty and diversity of nature, they also inspire us to discover the nature that constantly surrounds us. The Forest Meadow pattern takes us on a visit to a Swedish spruce forest, a place full of deep, vivid colours that contain a thriving ecosystem of bluebells, anemones, and lilies of the valley. The Fern Garden takes inspiration from old school posters as it depicts a gently shaded garden before and after the rain, as the resident garden snails peer outwards though a slick maze of ferns and mosses.
The DAWN CHORUS collection invites the very aesthetic of nature straight into your home. The clever combinations of bright colours and natural scenery creates an airy, Scandinavian expression with an elegant personal touch. And if you’re looking for a more snug and cosy feeling for your room, we recommend going for the darker wallpapers.
