Dutch Sky – Little Owl Design

23 Aug

You may recall a post that I wrote a while back on a Dutch company called Little Owl Design and their “altered Perspectives”  collection which upcycled plates and discarded canvases….

Altered Perspectives – Fisherman Under the Palm Trees

Well the creative forces of Bruce Wayland and Marcello De Simone have come up with a new product to add to their collection.  Inspired like many Dutch masters and creatives before them, the duo have used the Dutch sky as their inspiration to create a new range of wall paper, aptly named “Dutch Sky”, which is due to be launched in September 2012……

Summer Blue

In creating these wallpapers they have bought together a merger of art from the past Dutch masters and current technology.  They have combined prints of antique clouds and etchings, together with their own photography and the addition of whimsical additions of wind socks, cranes and chimney tops.

It is printed in Holland by one of the leading printing companies in the Netherlands, with clients as Piet Hein Eek and Merci.

Storm Grey

It is a very busy pattern, as such I  suspect it would be better utilised in smaller spaces as a feature wall. It certainly acts as a good backdrop to hang some of those plates….  let me know what you think….

On with the colourful journey……..

    Love these, BCD – there’s something so appealing about sky and cloud scenes, I reckon. And while I’m not sure the hanging plates are my scene, I love your idea of a feature wall – I could quite happily look at Summer Blue or Dusk Violet every day!
