The Nordic wallpaper with refined elegance and a romantic nature
The Scandinavians are certainly an innovative lot. They’ve given us the adjustable spanner, dynamite, paper clips and and plastic lego blocks just to name a few of their contributions to modern society. But technical proficiency aside, they have also produced some engaging homespun decor that is wonderfully crisp and instantly comfortable.
The Scandinavian Vintage Collection by Marburg fits this bill perfectly, offering beautifully crafted designs in a range of contemporary colours that will help you turn a house into a home. The collection is essentially a modern interpretation of Art Déco ornaments, but the main goal is to deliver the look and feel of linen strewn with faded damask motifs, rose petals and curling tendrils. Think safety from a snowstorm, think crackling fireplace, think home cooking and think welcoming walls.
Go often to the house of thy friend; for weeds soon choke up the unused path – Scandinavian Proverb
The Scandinavian Vintage Collection by Marburg is a rare breed, giving the interior decorator an opportunity to blend old world charm with contemporary design. Romantic and inviting, the traditional floral and tendril motifs really come alive through the careful application of the colour scheme. Discreetly cautious but peppered with a contemporary brush, the colours move through shades of faded blue, powdery pink, vernal green and late summer yellow. They are skilfully complemented with soft tones of grey, beige and white wool to conjure up a lasting impression of halcyon days and a rich family life. A three-colour contrast stripe allows you to punctuate the flow here and there, generating a cosy ambience with a touch of grace and style.
Texture also plays an important role in the collection’s overall appeal. The high quality non-woven tapestries of the Scandinavian Vintage Collection have a dull matt surface feel, retaining their traditional charms even when combined with modern pieces. What’s more, they are easy to handle and extremely durable, because every home occasionally suffers the wrath of an avalanche!
