There's a new kid on our wallpaper block: Carmine Lake
Our love for bold, bright and beautiful homewares never wanes, so we get particularly excited when we come across award-winning brands like Carmine Lake and their fantastic collection of homewares and interiors. The creative fusion of Rachael Doble, a lifelong fashion and textile expert, and Simon Critchley, an internationally recognised illustrator and artist—this collection is eclectic, unique and an inspiring addition to interiors—and we are thrilled to have them on board at Maison Margot. Check out our new Insects wallpaper collection, and their fabulous decorative trays.
Carmine Lake was established in 2015, and since then has gone on to win numerous international awards, and is displayed in various locations throughout the world.
We love their Insects Jour & Insects Noir range of wallpapers, for the bold background colours of Emerald, Petrol Blue, Black and Royal, and for the striking attention to detail of the featured insect. Each wallpaper design features either an Anisoptera (dragonfly), Bombus (bumblebee), Lucanidae (beetle), Papilio (butterfly), or a mixture of them all.
With a range of geometric backgrounds, these wallpapers give a subtle nod to the 1920s, and are printed on the finest quality sustainable paper stock. As with all our other wallpapers, these ones are paste the wall products that can be easily applied yourself at home—although we always recommend having a professional fitting if you are able.
Carmine Lake also create a wonderful collection of decorative trays—which make for a fantastic present—each measuring 46cm in diameter, and handcrafted in Sweden using wood that has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Dishwasher safe (up to a temperature of 95 degrees celsius), and featuring rounded edges that make them more durable and comfortable to hold—we have two tray designs in Bombus (bumblebee) and one in Papilio (butterfly).
