I made some wallpapers !

stripes

Last half year I have been working together with Mr Perswall to make a special collection and today we launched them! It has been so much fun. I guess the whole process started with the book and being in the kids zone. Just thinking about what would be great for a playful mind. The cloud above is actually a cushion that I have made and then it’s a photograph of it that turned into different wallpapers. I guess the clouds is a classic – and this is a twist. All the images me and Jenny made at her house – remember this post?

Mr Perswall ship world wide and the wallpapers are digitally printed and you can make them in any size you want!

mounttigermore

In the beginning I had an idea of some punk kind of mountains and then I got a vision of Tigers- cause kids love them right? I call this one Mount Tigermore.

robusto

The big Robot is completely an inspiration and a follow up on Jenny and Jens fantastic work with these big toys that they made as a photo story for the magazine MAMA. I also borrowed Jennys spray painted golden Robots and they made a great detailed photo of it and changed them at Mr P. They now come in two different shapes.
I mean who doesn’t want a huge Robot at home? And thank you Jenny!

These are the Robots but as a pattern.

fluffy

These patterns above and below are made out of my old collection of scented erasers that I call “The smell of magic”. My dad saved a big box of them on his attic and when I found them I got ecstatic. They are so cool. So I made one with a kaleidoscopic touch, a alphabet or just use the letters to spell a name or tagline that you like. And then a random all over print. That one also comes with a purple background. Viola – Jenny’s daughter has a test of this wallpaper in her wicked cool room!

sun

Well I can’t really take credit for coming up with this “Epic Sunrise” pattern but it’s a great one and I made some color combinations and I like the idea of the brick wall to layer it all up.

goal

This one comes from thinking about all these sport loving kids out there. Use a soft ball and play inside! This is called “Come on let’s play” The cool thing is since you order the wallpaper by any size you want. Make the goal a cool headboard for a bed or a gigantic goal for playing inside?

You can also buy the goal, cut it out and glue it on another wallpaper or a painted wall or the garage door.

 

halsband

I’m a bit messy at home and one day I left my necklaces laying on our floor. I just thought it looked great. Also reminds me about summer.

This one is actually a mistake- we made something else and hit a wrong button on the computer – suddenly I was just like – stop! Love this ‘Stripey Leopard’

horses

I also like the idea of a classic pattern from far and then when you look close you see the horses. Remember when I lost my bag on the train? In that bag was the horses that we wanted to photograph and the necklaces above, the cloud and some robots. So lucky I got it back! You can find the “I Love Horses” wallpaper here.

I also really want to thank Linda Pålemo – head of designs at Mr Perswall for all the help! She has been great! And Jenny Martinsson for starting the process and Alex for helping out with the details! Lots of love!

 

Hope you like them?

Life At Jenny´s House

jennyfromdosfamily
Every time I look at myself I think I´m actually looking at my big sister Anna. I look more and more like her. This makes me happy because now it feels like a see her every time I pass a mirror. But in real life I don´t see her as often cause she lives in Nebraska.

Here are a few pictures from life at my house.
Also thank you for all the likes on the previous selfie. (@jennyfromdosfamily)    dosfamily-life7

Frank and Saba the cat are getting ready for one more day spent on the couch.
