As we will all be spending a lot more time at home over the next few months, as well as the fact that spring has officially sprung, there's no better time to give your interiors a refresh. Thankfully, the new Andrew Martin wallpaper SS20 collections are providing some exquisite inspiration.
The two new collections are called Casablanca and Scholar; Casablanca pulls together the European and North African influences of majestic Morocco and Scholar appeals to our childlike curiosity.
From patterns to mysterious lands, wallpaper can create interest and inject personality into our interiors. They can be used to impact the mood, atmosphere and even the function of a room whilst still allowing your existing furniture and accessories to sing.
Martin Waller, Founder of Andrew Martin, said: “The reason wallpaper is on a high is because there’s no quicker way to transform any room than with wallpaper. You can ricochet between a Renaissance painting or an industrial warehouse through to the magic of traditional wallpaper to the opening lines of Nicholas Nickleby.” .
Discover the two new Andrew Martin wallpaper SS20 collections below.
ANDREW MARTIN WALLPAPER SS20: CASABLANCA
This new collection of versatile wallpapers comprises four designs in 14 colourways (£50 per roll), all inspired by the magic and tradition of Morocco.
Founded by the Berber's in the 7th Century, over time the city of Casablanca, translating to 'white house' in English, became a melting pot for English, Portuguese, Spanish and French cultures. The four designs in the Casablanca collection pulls together the European and North African influences of majestic Morocco to create a selection of relaxed and usable two-tone wallpaper designs.
The hero wallpaper of the collection is Berber. Available in five colourways, its minimal crisscross pattern is dotted with abstract shapes and symbols.
A design that emulates traditional Berber rugs woven by the women of tribes living in Morocco's Atlas Mountains. Within each unique rug design, these women would weave in stories from their daily lives, as well as lucky motifs to warn off evil spirits.
The other designs in the collection, Atlas, Souk and Sabra, embody the spirit of Morocco. Souk takes its name from the bustling marketplaces of Marrakesh. Its dainty star motif is a nod to the shape that has become a symbol of Morocco, appearing across the ornate lanterns, rugs, ceramics and jewellery as well as the country's flag.
ANDREW MARTIN WALLPAPER SS20: SCHOLAR
The Scholar collection of super-wide wallpapers comprises seven designs, available in a three-metre A&B panel repeat. Scholar invites you to travel to far-flung destinations, reminisce about childhood memories or live between the pages of your favourite novel - literally.
Scholar transforms you into an intrepid explorer of new lands and purveyor of unique vantage points. Through the unique wallpapers like Constantinople or Latitude, you can embark on an historic voyage to distant lands. These richly illustrated maps have a mythical quality, dotted with old sailing routes and undiscovered islands.
Re-discover your inner child with a playful Wizard of Oz wallpaper, replicated from a 1920s board game. A colourful display of characters and destinations, returning to the excitable world of your childhood mind.
You can also immerse yourself in a different fictional world, with one of Andrew Martin's literary inspired designs. With the enthralling words of some of history's greatest novelists, Charles Dickens, Jane Austen and F. Scott Fitzgerald, Scholar will transport you right into the heart of the story to become the protagonist of your favourite book.
