You gotta love a good wall paper. Wall paper can make a fantastic statement wall therefore we often propose it in designs we make for our clients to compliment paint.
When Jimmy Cricket approached us again to take care of the styling for the launch of her new jungle design, we could not wait to get started. We have worked with Jimmy Cricket before for her collaboration with Pax and Hart for the One Fun Day and Bunny wall paper. Her latest jungle design is right up our street. As a bonus she mentioned the set up would need to be vibrant, colorful with lots of lush greens… Hey! That’s just how we like it!
A beautiful wooden floor by Nordic Homeworx brings in warmth, authenticity and structure. Together with the jungle wall paper it created a perfect starting point for our settings.
The first one is with the Byron Bay daybed. With some amazing bedding by La Cerise sur le Gateau via Bon Bon Bleu in teal blue, warm green and mustard yellow we made a perfect mis match which is a key ingredient of styling. With cushions in different materials (yes we are still fully on board with the velvet trend) we brought in some structure and pops of color. Our Big Stuffed friend seems pretty comfortable there… so would we.
Against the wall you can find some easy going cabinets from IKEA which we painted ourselves to give it a personal touch. We finished it off with a touch of warm red from a unique piece by Zoe Rumeau.
For the second setting we wanted to create a nursery that works for both girls and boys. Since the wall paper is so vibrant, it can stay in a kids room as they grow up.
The DertigZes cot is still a favorite as it is so easy to work with, it goes with any color or pattern. We chose for the same bedding with a pop of color to keep it simple but strong. Because we are always happy to bring in a touch of pink we chose a pink jellyfish from Vasili lights, a great new discovery with the most amazing lighting! An oldie but goodie Fiona Walker flamingo head brings in some extra structure and softness.
Playing this wall paper down also works very well with the use of neutral tones and Scandinavian furniture…. Can you visualize that too?
As you can see, the opportunities are endless with a good starting point.
One thing is certain: with a wall paper like this you just can’t go wrong!
