When Life Gives you Lemons

When life gives you lemons .. decorate your home! 

Inspired by Lemondrop Lullaby by Dina Bandman Interiors, we’ve pulled together some of our favourite Lemon themed wallpapers to help cheer you up at this difficult time. Yellow is renowned for being a cheerful warm and sunny colour and used cleverly and sparingly can add humour and interest.

First up we have “Arance” This glorious structural lemon repeat by Fornasetti for Cole and Son – Fornasetti is the master of subversive and humorous design – check out his homepage for a start!

Arance Wallpaper by Fornasetti

The bold repeat of Mediterranean citrus fruits seen in Arance are a prolific theme throughout the Fornasetti archive, originally appearing on the tray ‘Fette d’arancia’ in the 1950s and repurposed by Barnaba Fornasetti in the 90s as a graphic fabric print. This organic study has been produced in true-to-life palettes of Blood Orange, Orange, and Lemon on strikingly contrasting grounds of chalky Seafoam and Stone, as well as the sumptuous Ink – shop the designs here

Lastly – we think the original design “Frutto Prohibito” by Fornasetti for Cole & Son is actually pomegranates but the yellow colour way of this design reminds us very much of Lemons so we’ve included it anyway:

Frutto Prohibito Lemon

Frutto Proibito gloriously combines different archival Fornasetti motifs from the 1940s and 50s. Mischievous monkeys, originally conceptualised for the Milanese patisserie, Dulciora, sit amongst sprawling pomegranate tree branches, taken from a striking fabric print. The playful composition of flora and fauna is quintessentially Fornasetti, mixing lifelike etchings with decadent, bold prints.
