Mr Perswall | Captured Reality


Once upon a time wallpaper choices came down to just colour and pattern preferences but nowadays we're seeing the high-tech production of wall treatments that actually mimic real-life materials such as wood and concrete. The Scrapwood Wallpaper by Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek immediately springs to mind. Cleverly emulating real planks of wood, I've posted images of this striking wallpaper more than once on the blog, and for good reason. Designed to transform your walls, it looks amazing. As shown in my Concrete & Wood post, I recently discovered the Concrete Wallpaper designed by Tom Haga and again I was blown away by the realness of it.

Just the other day I stumbled across this new collection Captured Reality by Swedish wallpaper company Mr Perswall and was completely wowed, not only by the Wood and Concrete wallpapers, but others such as Tile, Mosaic, Bamboo and Carerra Marble. 

Old Wooden Wall

Turquoise Mosaic

Being pioneers of digital printed wallpapers, Mr Perswall are known for their unique designs and collaborations with famed designers including Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood and Tricia Guild.

What makes this new collection truly special is the process by which the wallpapers have been created. Using the best camera possible, the design team travelled around Sweden photographing the surfaces, resulting in a total of 26 wallpaper patterns. All have an amazing resolution ensuring even very large walls get picture perfect results.

  1. ooohhh that's hard to choose. I like the green wall and the white bricks...

    1. Thanks Jodie ... I love those two as well x

  2. Love, love, love them - how cool! My favs are the white brick and painted concrete. That's awesome that you can get that rustic vibe, even in a new home. Vic x

    These are brilliant! I can't believe they're wallpaper. Certainly has turned me on to wallpaper again. I would love the white wood paneling in my house. Thanks for sharing these with us.

    1. My pleasure - so glad you like them! x
