Elli Popp Wallpaper

August 18, 2010

I was so pleased when talented surface pattern designer Katja Behre from Elli Popp wrote in to share her latest neo-romantic wallpaper collection. I couldn’t wait to receive images from her to put on decor8 and since they just arrived last night, here are about 25,000 of them for you to enjoy along with me. :)

Pretty things so rock.

In addition to all of this gorgeous wallpaper, Katja designs ceramics and fabrics as well (yeah, can you say OMG along with me?). You can see some examples of her ceramics and pillows in the images above. I happen to have a few samples of her wallpaper and let me just say that in person, it’s even more gorgeous. I’m thinking that I may order some… I was excited to learn that Katja is German and her hometown is Hannover, where I live!

Psst: If you are in London next month, visit Katja at 100% Design, Stand C54 from the 23rd – 26th September in London@Earls Court.

    I think I’ll have to get an apartment in Europe (Paris Maybe?) just to have access to this stuff.

    Even for me who has never really been into it, wallpaper has really come into its own thses last few years, love the 11th picture down, is that peole in the trees? That is another current trend at the moment, figures and people.

    Hard to chose, but my favorites are the ones with the butterflies and the purple one (with the purple purse in front).

    Oh, and I like the 2nd one from the top (with a frame) too!!!

    Makes me reconsider my feelings on wallpaper:).

    I’m so anti wallpaper but these prints are fantastic!!

  • Reply Erin August 18, 2010 at 8:35 pm

    This wallpaper is fabulous!

    This is the perfect example of ‘modern’ wallpaper being something I’m into. I would love to do an accent wall or surprise guests by filling a half bath with one of her papers!

    DELICIOUS…..and those dishes…..they made my heart sing!

  • Reply La Belle Vie August 18, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    The pink and purple at the top and the black and white butterflies are my favourite!! I’m considering wallpapering my hallway and these two are definitely in my top 5!!!

  • Reply Julia August 18, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Dear Holly. These wallpapers are awesome. My favourite one: Esmeralda´s Reverie – or Foxy Flowers – or Magdalena? Mhmmm, very difficult ;) Thank´s for sharing !!!

    I love that wallpaper! My favorite is probably the second photo but they are all truly gorgeous!

    There is a hint of the wallpapers I grew up with but with a beautifully creative modern twist. Lovely.

    I really like the one with fruit, (I think) on the pale blue background. 8th photo down.

  • Reply Redlilocks {Swoon Worthy} August 18, 2010 at 11:43 pm

    Oh those designs are just staggeringly beautiful. The one with the butterflies is just… just… there are no words.

    I wanted to mention, Holly, that I used Cole & Son’s Cow Parsley in yellow in my living room and I absolutely LOVE it! I know from previous posts that you loved it as well – are you going to be using it in your new home? :)

    • Reply decor8 August 19, 2010 at 12:08 am

      @Redlilocks – I was JUST thinking about this tonight, it’s funny you mention it actually! I am not sure, I’m trying to decide where and then the question is, do I have enough of it. I purchased 4 rolls so I think I could do the hallway… I am going to move into the house first and see how the light is and after a few weeks I’ll know more I think. Do you have any photos of it up in your house?

  • Reply Penny Patten August 19, 2010 at 12:43 am

    very lovely, I wish I had a room to re-decorate with some of this unique wallpaper.

  • Reply Bobbi August 19, 2010 at 1:33 am

    I’m really starting to love wall paper again.

  • Reply missIsa August 19, 2010 at 3:53 am

    Oh goodness me! I want so desperately to live in a house that has wallpaper.
    This wall paper! All of it! Hhahaha

    They DO rock, don’t they? LOVE those dishes!

  • Reply Stephanie Ryan August 19, 2010 at 4:52 am

    They are so much fun. Too hard to pick a favorite.

  • Reply Megan Coyle August 19, 2010 at 6:08 am

    What gorgeous designs! They’re inspiring me to turn back to wallpaper :)

  • Reply Blue Penguin August 19, 2010 at 6:45 am

    Those papers are just so lovely – elegant and subtle, but bright and cheery all at the same time (I don’t know how that’s even possible!). But I’m desperately in love with that purple patent handbag as well…

  • Reply Helena [room and serve] August 19, 2010 at 8:57 am

    Oh love the first one, feels lika handmade in watercolor :)

  • Reply Stephanie August 19, 2010 at 9:02 am

    wow i love the second one. It would be so fun to put this in my bathroom, so that when I am cranky and tired in the morning I walk in to get ready and it immediately brightens up my day!

  • Reply Eva August 19, 2010 at 10:55 am

    Sooo pretty! Sigh! My favourite is Esmeralda’s Reverie and I can’t decide which of the two colourways shown here I like better! I’m fascinated by the fact that these retro-style flowers also look a lot like jellyfish. Or is that just me? Anyway, thanks for the thousands of pics!

  • Reply Sandy August 19, 2010 at 12:37 pm

    so gorgeous!

  • Reply oisive August 19, 2010 at 1:38 pm

    it’s really really lovely !

  • Reply Redlilocks August 19, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    @decor8 – It’s in my living room but I’m still working on the room so all hasn’t been revealed yet on my blog ;) However, you can see the wallpaper here:

    The colour is just beautiful how it changes with the light – sometimes it looks a very soft maize, other times a pale yellow. I would think 4 rolls should be plenty for a hallway. Find a wallpaper calculator online and you’ll be able to figure out if you have enough. I think the drop is quite large (70cm I think?) but I did that wall with 2 rolls and had plenty spare.

  • Reply Meaghan August 19, 2010 at 4:00 pm

    Wow, all of these are gorgeous – I can’t wait until I own and not rent so I can use wallpaper!!

    I’m not a huge fan of wallpaper, but I really like these!
