Adventure wallpaper by Rob RyanFresh Design Blog features Rob RyanRob Ryan collaborates with Mini Moderns

Designer Rob Ryan has collaborated with Mini Moderns to produce his first wallpaper range.

The wallpaper is based on designs from the end papers of Rob’s latest book, “A Sky Full of Kindness,” and features birdcages (which were originally cut from paper, in Ryan’s typical style) and tiny escapee birds. It’s hard to see in the images, but the birds are holding tiny messages in their beaks, spelling out the sentence, “Our adventure is about to begin.”

The wallpaper is available to purchase in three funky colourways – sky blue, chalky violet and afternoon green – and costs £50 per 10m roll from Mini Moderns.
