Ok, so I know it’s a day later than usual but here’s this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday offering. My choice is the wonderful Marimekko Ystavat paper in Chilli. I’ve long been a fan of Marimekko designs and love their retro, funky feel. Ystavat is no exception and really delivers on the funky side of things.
Ystavat is a blend of hand drawn figures in a very striking design and looks amazing close up or from afar. It reminds me of those optical illusions a little even though it isn’t. I wonder if my eyes would go blurry after looking at it for too long! I love it though, what an incredible statement wallpaper. It would look stunning in a modern, contemporary home with white furniture. Pick out the taupe colour as an accent and keep the accessories bold and geometric for a real up to date look.
Ystavat by Marimekko is available online at various places including John Lewis and Wallpaperdirect and costs £56.95 per roll.
