Collaborative culture across creative disciplines is at the very heart of Australia’s contemporary design ethos. The latest brand to shake up the design status quo with a cross-disciplinary collaboration is Perth-based Scandinavian Wallpaper & Décor, who have just released 15 new abstract wallpaper murals, created in collaboration with Melbourne artist Belinda Marshall.
A very modern match made in cyber heaven, Lollo Jansson, Director of Scandinavian Wallpaper & Décor, first encountered Belinda’s work after finding her on Instagram. The designer’s connection to Belinda’s work was instant and she immediately realised the potential for a collaboration to bring Belinda’s art to life on a very different canvas. “As soon as I saw her collection I knew straight away that I needed and wanted to do something with these designs”, explains Lollo, and indeed, her creative instincts were certainly on the mark as she unveiled this stunning collection of 15 new wallpaper designs.
Based in Perth, Scandinavian Wallpaper & Décor specialises in traditional wallpaper with a contemporary twist, creating high end digital wallpapers and wallpaper murals using cutting edge digital technology. Mixing Australian style with Nordic design sensibilities, Scandinavian Wallpaper & Décor has gathered a cult following of devotees, and with their stunning wallpaper murals that blur the boundaries between art and interior design.
Indeed, what more impressive canvas can there be than the walls of your own home? Belinda herself is a practising visual artist, whose style provokes both a fresh and calming effect to the eye. Fusing layers of pastels with pops of bright colour, Belinda’s designs will easily translate this feeling into any interior space with the use of this wallpaper range.
