Home & Property: Rough gems: get touch-feely with the bold design trend for all things textural

Calico Wallpaper showed its panoramic Oceania wallpaper, built up from a watercolour wash scattered with salt. “The salt dissolves, leaving crystalline traces that capture seawater’s soft texture,” explains co-founder Rachel Cope.

Calico Wallpaper has also co-produced a wallpaper called Topographies with Brooklyn design studio Snarkitecture, made by tearing layers of paper to create a 3D effect resembling a topographic map.

Another Calico wallpaper design, Palette, features gigantic brushstrokes. These designs are then digitized so they can be custom-printed to fit any wall and are durable.
