In Scotland this week and a rifle through the local paper led me to artist / filmmaker Murray Grigor’s collection of prints, currently on show at the Aberfeldy Watermill. His series depicts famous Scottish landmarks or stories reworked with contemporary imagery, including this, his version of the Forth Bridge covered in a William Morris print.
It stirs the pattern-loving side of me, something I’ve been questioning of late when it comes to the wallpaper in my own house. In short, I think I’m sick of it. Maybe, living with the same decor for five years is – shockingly – too long. In this room especially, where I fancy plain walls through and through.
Or, maybe it’s the way all your favourite wallpapers end up on crap tv shows or in dodgy bars.
What interiors ideas do you prefer to admire from afar?
