MISHA Handmade Wallpapers

I’m not one for the overly decorative, but as I see more and more spaces transformed by wallpaper, I’ve been drawn to the mix of patterned walls with the simplest of furnishings. I do have to say these wallpapers by Misha are truly exquisite, and even if it’s not your type of thing (or within your budget) it’s certainly worth taking a look at the level of detail involved.

“MISHA handmade wallpapers selects, produces and distributes silk hand-painted wallpapers, that act as decorative frescoes for any exclusive contemporary space.”

prices range from 75 € to 600 €/m2

Modular Arts Wall Panels

This is an excellent picture of how well wall panels can create a truly unique environment.

“Cementitious, mineral composites have been favored by architects and designers around the world for their superior fire properties, relative light weight, and absence of harmful, off-gassing content. We feel that wall surfacing, which exposes large areas to potential fire hazard and circulated air should be safe: noncombustible and free of formaldehyde.”
