i have come across two Paris based companies in the past week who create beautiful designs for your walls. Minakani Walls is a wallpaper company headed up by Frédéric Bonnin and Cécile Figuette (who are also textile designers) and Bartsch is a decorative painting company run by cousins Gala and Nicolas, who specialise in hand painted patterns for your kid’s walls.


Minakani is a Paris based studio. Frédéric Bonnin and Cécile Figuette create patterns, mainly for textile but not exclusively. They’ve launched their walldecor line 2 years ago and offer custom size and exclusive motifs printed onto high quality non-woven paper.


Bartsch is a decorative painting workshop specializing in children’s rooms. Gala and Nicolas are cousins who have combined their skills to create collections of chic and playful patterns in their Parisian workshop. Bartsch, whose name comes from their great-grandfather, is the result of the relationship between graphic design and decorative painting. Each pattern is hand-painted directly on the wall. You can see the gesture and the brush strokes; you can feel the texture of the material.
