I was poking around somewhere and discovered a treasure trove of Piero Fornasetti wallpapers from Cole & Sons in the UK. Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator, engraver of books and a creator of more than 11,000 products. In terms of variety of decoration, Fornasetti’s production of objects and furniture is one of the largest of the 20th century.
There is a collection of wallpapers full of books, which would make a fabulous backdrop for a room. It comes in several colourways, and if you were cheeky, you could mix and match them! I’d probably get out my set of Sharpie markers and start adding titles here and there.
There was also a great paper of Vivienne Westwood’s iconic Union Jack. I’d love this for a wall in my house! While I am not a huge fan of many British wallpapers – I’ve seen and lived with too many really bad ones – I do like these.
