Friday Finds: Farrow & Ball Wallpaper

farrow&ball wallcovering

Farrow & Ball devotees know they can count on the brand’s ab-fab paint colors, cutting-edge wallpaper patterns, and exceptional quality. They also know how to be patient. Farrow & Ball introduces only a handful of wallpaper patterns each year and new paint colors are introduced to the Farrow & Ball palette every three years. This year’s wallpaper introductions are three modern floral designs that can work as feature walls or in a whole room. Here are the brand new patterns for 2017 and the inspiration behind them:

  • Hegemone takes it name from the Greek goddess of fruit and flowers. This pattern is described as “less rigid and defined than a classic floral pattern.” If you like movement on your walls then this is your pattern.
  • Atacama* is named after a flowering desert in Chile and inspired from a fabric swatch found in an old fabric mill. Atacama is a mix of flowers and cacti creating a “fun tropical design.”
  • Helleborus is Latin for the hellebore flower and inspires “a sense of growth and rejuvenation. Helleborous is one of the largest designs in their wallpaper collection.

Farrow & Ball wallpapers are made in England by craftsmen (and women) who take great pride in their workmanship. Printed with Farrow & Ball paints in a traditional block-printing method gives the wallpaper a luxurious texture. It also makes it easy to create a style that is cohesive and a room that is inviting since you won’t have to try and match up paint colors.

You’ll want to stop by to feel and see the new collection for yourself – available exclusively at our Edina location.

*Have you seen the James Corden commercial with Chase Sapphire? One of the travel people say, ” I think you should come camping.” James Corden: “Why would I camp in the Atacama Desert?” I feel so smart – I know where the Atacama Desert is. Thank you, Farrow & Ball.

This collection features patterns from no less than five different designer icons within architecture and pattern design during the 1940’s – 1960’s. Browse through the characteristically timeless, geometric functional style of Arne Jacobsen, the decorative fairy tale patterns of Stig Lindberg, the Jobs sisters’ treasure chest of classic, flowery patterns and the stylish, sketched foliage of Viola Gråsten.

All of the patterns in the collection have a natural, colourful and imaginative touch that make them a perfect complement to the understated, clean Scandinavian interior design. Classic and contemporary have never been more to the point.

{spring home makeover: front porch edition}

The return of warm weather means it’s time to get outside in Minnesota! Spring is the perfect time to open up your windows and revamp your front porch so you can enjoy the outdoors for the months to come.  But time is wasting, so here are some decor tips  for a quick and easy front porch makeover.

Paint the Front Door

For the biggest impact, add some bright, inviting color to your door and accessories. Whether you go bright or light the key is using complimentary colors. For every blue, green, or violet, choose an orange, red, or yellow.

If you’ve got warm brick or siding, try a cool color like spring green, teal, or turquoise. If you’ve got white siding, no color is off limits — not even this canary yellow.

Plant Your Flowers

Flowers and planters are another quick fix, but you need to be thoughtful for maximum impact. These planters are a great choice because they are similar to the chandelier in shape, but opposites in finish — traditional warm metal compared to a contemporary cool plastic.

Turn On The Lights

Adding new lights will give new life to your porch. It will make your entrance bright for all those late-night comings-and-goings if you’re looking for safety and security. Don’t forget about scale. People often make the mistake of not buying large enough outdoor fixtures. Looking for the soft glow of porch ambiance? Welcome your guests with a string of decorative twinkling lights.

Add More Furniture

If you have enough space, consider adding more furniture to create a room with a view. Whether it’s conventional wicker furniture to create a three season sitting room, or the right rug, and chairs, you’re sure to enjoy the warm breezes all summer long.
