The Product: Italianate pale blue wallpaper ‘Majolica’
Create a dramatic ‘palazzo-style’ backdrop with this ornate, patterned pale blue wallpaper. To our mind, the design references the elegance and grandeur of formal Italian interiors. However, the all-over pale blue wallpaper pattern set against an off-white ground keeps it subtle and pretty.
This block-printed wallpaper was created in-house at the Rapture & Wright studio. The design was inspired by the wonderfully naive decoration on a piece of 15th Century, Italian, tin-glazed pottery.
In this cool, elegant colourway, the design provides a brilliant foil for a chic, blue and white scheme. Most importantly, soften and cosy up the room with paler hues. We’re thinking textural layering in a palette of creams and off-whites encompassing velvets, linens, silks and woollens. These might take the form of cushions, upholstery, rugs, drapes and throws. By the same token, the warmth and patina of vintage, wooden furniture counters the coolness of a blue and white scheme. Check out Vinterior for elegant Victorian or Edwardian case furniture such as glazed cabinets or balloon back chairs. Ensure a fresh, directional look by adding modern designer furniture to the mix.
Alternatively, liven up the soft pattern with vibrant accents in contrasting brights such as pinks and oranges. Likewise, layer textures to add depth.
Further, apply this elegant paper to just one end wall. In which case, meet the adjacent walls with toning, but slightly deeper-hued, wall paint. In addition, all-over patterns work brilliantly in smaller spaces such as a hallway or WC. They add impact and help conceal awkward curves and angles on ceilings. Gauge the scale of the design by checking out the styled shot above.
