Hannah Nunn wallpaper???


For the last few months I have been doing the an online course called The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design with Rachael Taylor. It's brilliant an is jam packed full of tutorials, workshops and exercises and I've been squeezing them in to my already busy schedule whenever I can. I'm still very behind but I am loving it and could happily make patterns all day long every day. It's very very satisfying.


On Monday and Tuesday I'm doing a big photo shoot with Sarah of all my lamps for my new website (which is coming along a treat by the way and shouldn't be too long now) and I wanted to create some neutral but textured backgrounds to use in the photographs so I designed some wallpaper. 


Mike at Print Bureau has printed them for me on his big new printer a metre square each and it was very exciting indeed going to pick it up yesterday all rolled up just like the real thing!


It's going to look sweet on my photographs complimenting my lamps and it has given me a lot of inspiration to do more wallpaper designs.


So watch this space. I've even been working with colours too and after ten years of just designing with light and shadow this has been a bit of a revelation :).

Can't wait to show you the pictures...and can't wait to have a whole range of wallpaper!

LOVE these Hannah, especially love the leaf repeat. They would also make lovely gift wrap. x

Mariel, en Funes said...

your designs are lovely, warm and simple. Wall paper or fabric for deco would be a hint

Ann Martin said...

Go for it, Hannah! These are gorgeous.

Kirsty said...

These are beautiful, Hannah! Can't wait to see what else you come up with (and yes, they'd be great as wrapping paper too!) x

I am coming over all woozy - these are blowing my mind!! Utterly beautiful, simple in only the way that brilliant art can be. Totally floats my style boat - I think these could be HUGE! Wondering if you ever would consider fabric? We have no walls really for wallpaper, too many beams everywhere but in soft furnishings I could go beserk!:))) It is like you have distilled all the natural, meadowy lines and curves I love and created patterns I could only dream of. Ack, sorry to gush but I feel like you have got to the essence of the shapes in print in a way that I long to celebrate/explore in my jewellery - you are absolutely my design hero! xx

Hannah Nunn said...

Everyone! Your comments mean so much to me. Thankyou so much for the encouragement. I am very inspired :)

On the course we are learning how the industry works. How we go about turning our designs into these products and how it all works business wise. I would love to do wall paper AND fabric...and fabric back into lampshades too. It is full of possibility.

I am a newbie at pattern making so it is so wonderful to get your encouragement. Means the world!

I love 'em - they will make amazing backgrounds for the photo-shoot! Here's to the start of something big, and roll on Monday! x

Hannah, these are so beautiful. Yes, wall paper is a must. i love how soft and warm your work is. Just beautiful. Always leaves me breathless... thank you for sharing. xox

Hannah Lamb said...

I absolutely love your wallpaper designs and very excited to see some more. My favourite is the one that looks like overlapping transparent beech or hornbeam leaves. Your design reminds me of some real leaves that I bleached and turned into skeletons. Wonderful stuff, well done you!

Hannah,

I saw Rachael Taylor's twitter link to this project -- I just finished the Module 2 course too. This wallpaper looks amazing!! Really looks fabulous. Great job! I'm curious about how you got it printed, did it cost you a fortune or was it reasonable to have the samples printed?

Elizabeth

Hannah Nunn said...

Hi Elizabeth. It was reasonable I think. I got three x 1 metre square samples (so not proper wallpaper sample sizes, just large format printing) for £35.

Hope your patterning is going well. Are you doing wallpaper too?

Helen said...

Hannah these look so lovely - a perfect extension for your work. Think I need to come back for a longer session, just popped over for a peak whilst waiting for my printer to run and there is so much to catch up on! Be back soon - all looking fab x
