Poetic Papers

Poetic Papers 


New wallpaper collection by Helene Blanche


Poetic Papers is a hand drawn collection of wallpaper created with the aim of designing a timeless book of poetic yet classic patterns.

The collection is designed by textile designer Helene Blanche in collaboration with Tapet-Cafe.

A charming old diary filled with beautiful pieces of original 1920th wallpapers, gently removed from the walls of my great grandmother’s Norwegian home, was kindly given to me a few years ago. 

The aesthetic of these old pieces of decorated papers inspired me to create a collection of artwork with the same focus on refinement and texture as the vintage wallpapers”

Helene Blanche’s exclusive new collection of stripes and geometric patterns speaks the silent language of aesthetics through the delicacy and poetry of the wallpapers.

My main inspiration is a beautiful piece of textured drawing paper given to me by my mother in my early childhood. The desire to recreate the beauty of that exact paper led me to create this collection of artwork” –  Helene Blanche.
