How we create striped and patterned wallpaper!

Written by Karolina Kroon, 05 May, 2017

As we worked on the Villa Dalarö collection, we found that we were missing a medium-sized pattern, a classic trellis of a size which would fit many different types of rooms.

I started sketching what would later become the Viola wallpaper. I painted the medallion design in gouache to achieve a vibrant look, and then added a botanical element. Sometimes we reuse patterns or parts of patterns from previous wallpapers, and this is what I did with my medallion design. Two violets, which previously featured on our old Miko pattern, were brought back to life, and this time they also gave the wallpaper its name. Viola is available in four colourways with different expressions – a neutral white, a restful light grey, a classic blue and a modern steel grey.

In the photograph styled by Mari Strenghielm, you can see my favourite, the steel grey. This colourway works particularly well with both white and grey woodwork, and gives a modern touch to an otherwise classic interior.

Stripes are always useful, and they work in so many different types of rooms. When I created the original of the striped wallpaper, Nils, I aimed for a soft, textile expression, with a hint of featherbeds and woven linen towels. The breaks I added to the stripes to recreate the woven-surface appearance can be seen if you take a close-up and careful look at the pattern.

The colours range from fresh shades of white which adapt and blend in, to classic red and blue which are a salute to the woven-textile origin of the wallpaper.
