Meet the brains behind the Zuhause Wohnen Collection
Magic happens when two titans join forces to produce winning results. When Mickey met Minnie, their professional careers took them to world fame. When Bert met Ernie, their act became a riot that lasted for decades. When Bonnie took on Clyde, things really started to heat up for the constabulary. And could you imagine Batman sitting solo in his revved-up Batmobile, with no Robin to soak up his witty observations? Dynamic duos can really push the envelope, so we were thrilled when leading wallpaper manufacturer Marburg teamed up with iconic interior design magazine Zuhause Wohnen. This magnetic combination has produced a young and vibrant wallpaper collection that is dripping with feminine sensuality – the perfect backdrop to any coming-of-age bedroom – equally at home in a funky urban living space or a light and airy summer beach house.
The Zuhause Wohnen Collection is the brainchild of Regine Kuhlei (magazine editor-in-chief) and Dieter Langer (creative director at Marburg). Regine Kuhlei steers one of Europe’s most influential home décor magazines, using her industry experience to keep every edition fresh and vibrant. Dieter Langer has long focused on setting new trends in textile design. After working his magic at exalted industry specialists such as Pickhardt + Siebert, he now produces superior wallcovering designs for world class manufacturer Marburg.
These two industry giants have joined forces to bring you a brash and playful collection that offers a sumptuous combination of large flower motifs, opulent paisleys, filigree grass motifs, hefty leaf florals and a retro design in the style of the 50’s. The colour palette ranges from rich hues of blue and white on subtle pastels, to cheeky pink-green splashes combined with lime, white and lilac. Perfectly offset by the occasional addition of stripes, this collection would look superb against a modern interpretation of the shag pile rug or a shabby-chic crystal chandelier.
The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly and lie about your age – Lucille Ball
The collection’s large scale floral patterns are perfect for wide open spaces, whilst the more intricate details found in the grass motifs provide definition to the closed spaces in your home or crash pad. Mix and match textures to generate a playful jumble-sale ambience and don’t be afraid to experiment with this collection. Fortune favours the brave with this wonderful hotch-potch of florals, stripes and leaves.
To bring home the retro factor, why not balance your combination with stripes rendered in black, red or cinnamon? The tonal variations are sublime and the overall effect is one of mischievous youth, a carefree approach and a genuine appreciation of life. The Zuhause Wohnen Collection by Marburg can instantly lift your décor by adding zest and light, with a flirtatious appeal that’s hard to resist.
