    New from Mini Moderns

    by  • Wednesday, January 15, 2014 • Uncategorized • 6 Comments

    Inspired by the bleak beauty of Dungeness and the esoteric structures that populate the shingle beach in Kent, Mini Moderns have launched a new wallpaper design. I stumbled across the area on a road trip around the south east coast and was amazed by it’s scattered collection of dwellings, corrugated structures, the power plant and deserted boats. The landscape is very popular among artists and Mini Moderns have just finished converting an old railway carriage and managed to knock up a new wallpaper design, while they were there…

    Mini Moderns, wallpaper, new, Top Drawer, Interiors, decorating, ideal home, home shopping spyAvailable in 5 colourways: Washed Denim, Chalkhill Blue, Concrete, Pale Verdigris and Coach Emerald. The collection has just launched at Home and will be available at £50 a roll. What do you think? Have you been to Dungeness?

    Preview: Habitat launches a new paint & wallpaper collection

    For those wondering what Habitat have been up to of late, it’s been a bit of a year. After being bought out by the Home Retail Group (owners of Homebase and Argos) last year they have left us with only 3 London stores but thankfully, the UK website. From July this year, you will start to see an edited selection of the iconic homeware appear in over 200, slightly less iconic, Homebase stores across the country. Yes, it’s an unlikely pairing but as a result they’re launching a rather nice wallpaper and paint range that I previewed last week at their AW12 press show…

    All designed in house at Habitat, there are 30 shades in the paint collection based on favourite colours taken from the Habitat design palette. The selection of neutrals and brights all have quirky names including ‘sprout’, ‘cumin’ and ‘dust’. The paint can be used on interior walls, metal and wood. The retro-graphic wallpapers are designed to compliment the paint range with 4 designs in 16 different colours. My favourite is the wood grain effect in mustard yellow…

    The paint starts at £16 for 1.25 litres and £25 for a roll of wallpaper. If you live in London and can’t face a trip to Homebase they will also be available in the 3 London stores.

    So, Habitat are busy and in addition to their paint and wallpaper the AW12 collections are pretty lovely too, with the comfiest sofa in the world and gorgeous tableware (post coming soon!) – Alice.
