Decorating the home has been a key trend for 2020, as we find ourselves stuck inside staring at the drab walls that were last given a lick of paint when we moved in 7 years ago. It's not unsurprising that this has spurred a desire to go big and bold with our interiors, to give us something interesting to stare at whilst on the 5th zoom call of the day.
With this in mind it seems only appropriate to share with you Lick Home's newest collaboration, an edited collection of four wallpapers borne from the fantastical mind of digital flower arranger, Natasha Coverdale, AKA Studio Coverdale.
Two designs, two colour ways, four fantastical wallpapers, this is a collaboration that seeks to showcase Natasha’s imagination and creative hand with zero holding back. Focusing on her favourite florals to date, in our papers she layers and layers to create a mass of foliage, especially in the aptly-named Mars Meadow wallpapers.
Mars Meadow 01: There’s something a bit psychedelic going on here and we think it’s important to not let the paint colours distract from the magic that the wallpaper is creating. We’d suggest quieter paint colours like Blue 02 and Blue 03. If you’re somebody who prefers a darker colour scheme, look to Blue 05 or even Green 05 with Teal 03 as a happy middle ground.
Mars Meadow 02: We love the idea of really celebrating the hero hues in the harvest finish by taking them to the walls too. Orange 02, Yellow 02 and either of our reds – Red 01 and Red 03 – will help the wallpaper to seamlessly settle into your living space. This palette is less about contrast and more about consistency in colour so that the whole room is one big statement rather than having a feature section. If you want some contrast however, try Blue 03.
Electric Poppies 01: ‘Pull out the understated pale blue trim seen on the petal edging with Blue 01 or Blue 02 and work in some contrast with Blue 05 on your skirting boards. Electric Poppies is all about fun after all. If you want to maximise the blush element of the Candy colourway, try Pink 03, but I like the idea of Pink 04 too.
Electric Poppies 02: ‘Pink 03 works well as a paint colour partner for both Electric Poppies papers if you want to break up the greenery. Otherwise, run with the verdant theme and go for the olive tones of Green 05 balanced out with Green 04 or Teal 03 which is a bit fresher. Green 06 would create a beautifully dramatic colour scheme too.”
Plus by partnering with One Tree Planted, for every roll of wallpaper you buy, one tree will be planted around the world!
