Summer bright wallpaper, lights inspired by balloon art and a world first for tiles – these are the products that caught my eye this week
To create the latest three wallpapers in their Travelogue collection, Mini Moderns founding partners Mark and Keith returned to their favourite destination Sorrento and the Bay of Naples.
The latest designs draw on water colour sketches created over many years: Limoneto depicts lemon groves and sailing boats, Porcellana features painted plates hanging on striped wallpaper and Frutti di Mare is an all over print of fish and seafood. The designs perfectly capture the Mediterranean vibe of the area.
Paint & Paper Library’s new Architects formulations are suitable for a multiple of surfaces, the company says they will stick to almost any building substrate including wood, metal, tiles even plastic – making them suitable for use both inside and out.

Available in the full palette of Paint & Paper Library colours. With the new formulations, colour can be utilised across all surfaces within a space for a cohesive scheme.

Spotted at Clerkenwell Design Week the Soft Blown lighting collection will be available from Lladro in September. The collection includes the Afloat pendant light or Airbloom table lamps, both take inspiration from hot summer days when balloon artists fill the streets with colourful creations.
