Even though we're currently renting, and can't do anything remotely adventurous with our walls, seeing these incredible images from the current Broste Copenhagen SS15 collection has inspired me no end. Watercolours on the walls? Genius. There is such beauty in the splattered, colour washed effect. It's so much more inviting and intriguing than a wall of plain, block colour. What do you think?
Painted by the incredible Silke Bonde, I love the sense of texture and interest the watercolour gives to the room below. It sets the perfect backdrop for the soft blue/grey linen and metallic accessories. I'm pretty sure this is the bedroom of my dreams. I can see why Broste Copenhagan chose this gorgeous watercolour theme for their new collection, it shows all the pieces off beautifully.
Can we just take a minute to appreciate that awesome hanging chair? I've spotted more and more places selling these of late, and the more I see, the more I want one of my very own. Who knows where I'd hang it, but I'm sure I'd find the perfect spot. They look incredible laden with soft cushions and blankets - an inviting place to snuggle on a chilly day!
The tableware seen above is part of a new range called 'Nordic Sand'. A development from the 'Nordic Sea' range, these beautiful pieces are inspired by the colour of the sand found in Nordic nature. They are colour glazed by hand, which makes each piece uniquely raw and beautiful.
Whether in a soft pink, moody blue or stormy grey, a watercolour wash can be tailored to your room and the effect you want to create. Below, a wash has been applied across a large space over a radiator, making the perfect backdrop for a shelf full of candles.
In contrast to the larger expanse of watercolour (seen in the candles image previously), the space above shows how even a small watercolour detail can bring added drama to the room. Again, it brings an intriguing aesthetic to the room and adds the perfect final flourish. It doesn't detract from the pieces in the room; it happily complements them.
So, what do you think? Fancy painting a watercolour on your walls at home?
