Detailed and distinctive wallpapers and prints make showstopping backdrops for heritage spaces and modern homes alike. Curated by editor and founder Sophie Bush, the Warehouse Home edit for Surface View is a careful selection of murals, wall charts and prints directly evocative of the Warehouse Home aesthetic. From texture to typography, revive an unassuming alcove or transform an entire room with five of our favourite Surface View designs. 

TEXTURE

HYPER-REALISTIC

VINTAGE

(Above) Designs inspired by letterpress blocks are the latest twist on the typographic trend. The gentle brown and greys hues of this repeat add a sense of warmth whilst engaging with the illusion of depth. Is it your type? Take a look at Warehouse Home Issue Three for more letterpress inspired designs.

WALL CHARTS & PRINTS

(Below) A vintage study revived from the archive of the National Maritime Museum, this 'Butterflies' wall chart retains all the character and natural beauty of the original. Flanked with walnut timber batons and a leather tie it will arrive ready to hang.
