Last week we launched our new wallpaper collection ‘Azulejos’. The story of its origin comes from Lisbon - a wonderful place with beautiful artwork tiles with incredible patterns. We decided to create tile effect wallpaper designs inspired by what we saw and give others the opportunity to bring a part of Lisbon in their interior. This is our story about what happened behind the scenes.
When we visited Lisbon for the first time the most captivating works of art was found out on the streets. There we came across Azulejos - a form of Portuguese (and Spanish) hand-painted tin-glazed ceramic tile works.
Lisbon has the largest collections of tiles in Portugal which turns the city into one large art gallery.
We were astonished by all the beauty in this city and came back to our workshop with inspiration objects, photos, and heads filled with ideas.
Blue color plays a big role in this collection. It not only gives that Portuguese seaside feeling but also a fresh vibe that will brighten up any home interior. In order to find the perfect color, we experimented with different blue tones. For some designs golden yellow and red color was added as an accent tone.
To make sure that design looks good on the wallpaper materials we did countless test prints and checked if everything came out just as we planned.
The end result is seven new beautiful detailed tile effect wallpapers (available as self - adhesive and regular wallpapers) inspired by Lisbon's artistic streets.
