WILD ABOUT WATERCOLOUR

 
Black Crow Studios

Watercolour fabrics and wallcoverings have been growing in popularity for the past few years and we think this trend has some serious staying power. Bold yet soft, with tones ranging from vibrant and saturated to soft and subdued, these prints are classic and beautiful. 

Black Crow Studios creates stunning wall installations that pair equally well in a modern, minimal space as they do in a more traditional and ornate room. If you like this idea in a smaller concentration check out their toss cushions; click on the images at the bottom of this post. These would act as art in your home and at the same time provide functional comfort!

We have been seeing a lot more art in the form of area rugs recently and think this is a great way to invest in something unique for your space. These wool and silk rugs from Surya would pair perfectly with soft, neutral furnishings in various textures.

Rethink Design Studio has opted for floor to ceiling wall panels of muted watercolour trees in lieu of traditional framed art with fantastic results. The muted greys are subdued but still provide a great impact in the space. Sean Johnson has used a more traditional approach; a large-scale painting in multi-coloured hues is a bold focal point in an elegant, neutral living room.  

Watercolour prints were even on the Spring/Summer 2015  runways of Chanel. The softness of the lines is great in contrast with the classic tweeds. We are incorporating some hits of watercolour into the home of one of our clients; stay tuned in the coming weeks, we will be sharing the results right here!
