Wallpaper Inspiration

Work like Jenny Wilkinsons makes me so proud of surface design. It is people like her that remind me why I love designing patterns. Check out her series of paint-by-number wallpapers here.

Wilkinson is an independent designer specialising in surface design. Her Wallpapers-By-Numbers designs are made to be hung like conventional wallpaper and can be coloured in using paints, colouring pencils or felt tip pens. The wallpaper and its number guides allow you to choose whether to colour a small section, the whole thing or just leave it blank. Found on her site: “Her imagery is often evocative of the distorted world of childhood fantasies. Her most recent project has been with the design collective grimm++. Working to create a range of products and surface prints based on the Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale, Little Red Riding Hood. Continuing the playful nature of her work and design inspiration.”

As a child I always wanted to color on the walls of my room, didn’t room? These designs are the perfect compromise!
