Open any interior design magazine these days and you are sure to spot wallpaper as the latest trend in home design. Decorating today is all about the layering of texture with wallpaper and is replacing the painted feature wall, and it’s not expected to go away anytime soon.
Some of this is partly due to the recent revival of Florence Broadhurst designs, the eccentric and talented Australian designer famous for her hand-printed wallpapers. Her designs can currently be found in the Glamor, Flora, Blueprints, and Concepts Collections, and are matched by no other designer. Her furnishings and wallpapers are also in high demand worldwide at the moment due to their unique and luxurious patterns.
Broadhurst combined fuscia pinks, lemon yellows, lime greens, vivid oranges, turquoise, blacks, metallic silvers and gold – all perfectly matching her own flamboyant personality. She was also well known for printing onto transparent Mylars, foils and metallic papers. She called her revolutionary hand-printed creations; vigorous designs for modern living’.
Adding wallpaper to your home is a great way to create atmosphere in a room, often all it takes is one wall of an interesting and vivid design and it will prove to be a talking point for anyone visiting your home.
