Design For Interiors - Hanna For Boråstapeter

I first came across the work of Swedish designer Hanna Werning whilst in my first year of University. Her work was my first real inspiration as concerns print design and my first exposure to Nordic design. Werning's third collection for Swedish wallpaper giants Boråstapeter is by far my favourite collection of hers. Boråstapeter is Sweden's oldest and best known wall covering company. In terms of visual aesthetics you could probably class Boråstapeter as the Swedish equivalent to Cole & Son, with it being classically tasteful retaining vinage and retro styles whilst still being applicable to modern interiors. This collection combines Werning's signature style of vivacious bold prints combined with themes of flora and fauna. Tropical inspired colour theme are also mixed with Nordic nature to create a truly exotic collection.

Which are your favourite designs from this collection?
