INKE: DIY Recycled Wallpaper Kits

Instead of covering your home’s walls with reams of tacky newly manufactured wallpaper, check out this cute alternative: repurposed decorating materials that gain new life as a patterned menagerie of elephants, giraffes, crocodiles, ostriches, monkeys, rhinos and lions! Dutch designer Inke Heiland  has created an ‘old-as-new’ way for eco-nest builders to cultivate their inner habitat. INKE recycled wallpaper  kits are made from one-of-kind vintage wallpapers that are cut into wildlife silhouettes and leaf-adorned trees ready to be assembled on your wall.
Due to the retro-aging of INKE ’s papers and the irregularities in their printing, it is unlikely that two samples will be the same, as their unique patterns and shapes are as diverse as those of savannah roaming species found in the wild. INKE  also offers a floor-to-ceiling wallpaper tree with 3D birdhouse lamp that adds a glowing woodsy effect to a child’s room or your personal study or library.
The INKE : ‘do-it-yourself wallpaper kit’ includes your choice of animal silhouettes, a supply of paste, a brush, and simple instructions for installation. The silhouettes are all hand crafted in Inke Heiland’s workshop.
