Calacatta Manhattan Colour Notes:
Calacatta Manhattan wallpaper brings warm neutral greys together with fine grey and green veining, typical of this type of marble. The base colours on this wallpaper have a lovely pale tone giving this colourway a light and opulent look.
Each of the sixteen blocks that make up the repeat measures 26 cm square. Fit this design with any offset match to evenly distribute the blocks across the wall, disguising the repeat. The indent design is less apparent on the darker colourways in this series however when fitted it still reads well. The super smooth mica paper that this design is on gives a soft metallic sheen when the light catches across it.
Brutal Marmi Calacatta Manhattan wallpaper takes a fresh look at brutalism and wonders what might have been if concrete wasn’t the material of choice. The design follows the solid characteristics commonly associated with the short lived architectural style. At the same time they ditch the concrete in favour of luxurious stone choices. Marble, onyx and limestone form the building blocks in the grounds of each design. Each of the block motifs share the same rounded indent effect inspired by the poured concrete forms common in the brutal architectural style.
