Pattern Afrika galore

Ok there is quite a lot of patterns and different colors in our apartment these days. “Eh, how…wild.” as a polite visitor said the other day.  Our new wallpaper, Palm Leaves by Cole & Son has given our bedroom a touch of Africa. Well that’s kind of wild.

The bedspread and the rug from the shop are adding even more Afrika. What do you think, too wild?

For Swedish readers: SVT butiken ska läggas ner. Passa på att handla för halva priset. Den här fantastiska filmen t.ex.

    I’ve never been able to commit to anything but white walls, I would miss the dazzling play of light & shadows on it. But I’ve also frequently envied others their luscious and playful colors & textures. I think the check floor and leafy walls go very nicely together…the bedspread might be distracting. I do like how the dress (shirt?) compliments the nightstand, lamps and slippers. :)

    Not too wild, but perfectly wild, I’d say!

    Love it all!

  7. lovelovelove the lamps and the wallpaper. the combination with the bedspread is ok, but with the rug as well is a bit much for me.

    I think they’re the right kind of ‘wild’. I would love to have that wallpaper in a room somewhere. One day, one day!

    That wallpaper seems to open the room up in a huge way. It is as though you have moved to another country. You must be in a very expansive space yourself- and you are, with all the new design work. So, it fits!

    I love the rug! It looks super in the context. Would love to see it in a full view however.

  14. Helenb says:

    There is a lot of pattern but they are big patterns and have enough structure and clear space therefore dont overwhelm visually. I really like it. :)

    I love the mix of patterns, and the slightly sideways smile on the rug is perfect.

    Just wondering, did the bedspread increase in price by over €50 or did I imagine it? Thought after some scrimping and saving I now had enough to afford it, but didn’t remember the price as €222

      Thanks for your comment Suzanne. The bedspread that’s in the shop now is bigger than the first one we had – double. That’s why the price is higher. It’s a very nice bedspread. Kind of rough structure, handmade in thick cotton. And colored by a mud technique called Bògòlanfini.

      • Suzanne says:

        Ahh! Didn’t spot the size. It’s gorgeous, just have to wait a while longer to get my hands on one.

  16. Kathleen says:

    I love the light fixtures near your bed on the wall. They look like beautiful tropical fruit on the wonderful wallpaper..Sweet dreams.

  17. katie says:
