If you’re looking for some designer style wallpaper but don’t want to pay the designer style price tag, look no further than Harlequin’s baby sister design house, Scion. Their designs are bold, bright and dramatic and offer something a little more funky and upbeat that Harlequin. You may be familiar with Mr. Fox for example, a regular at the moment in one of Scion’s collections even featuring on their very lovely mugs (I must update my collection!). So today I’m showcasing a lovely geometric design wallpaper for Wallpaper Wednesday.
This design is called Suvi and it’s part of the Wabi-Sabi collection at Scion. Wabi Sabi won Gold and Silver at the House Beautiful awards last year, and here’s what Scion has to say about them:
Our award winning collection ‘Wabi Sabi’ originates from a Japanese philosophy, which embraces two seperate concepts; ‘Wabi’ – humble and simple, and ‘Sabi’ – aged and weathered. Together they represent the most honest, modest and simple form of beauty with calmness, confidence and respect; a beauty which transcends perfection and celebrates the loveliness inherent in the less-than-perfect.
Suvi, the design I’ve chosen from the collection today is made up of circular blocks derived from age-old hand printed techniques. I love the overall effect, and in particular am struck by the richness of the colours. I really think there’s something for everyone here.
Suvi by Scion wallpaper is available from John Lewis and Wallpaper Direct for £34 per roll and you can see more from the collection on the Scion website.
