Timorous Beasties, the internationally acclaimed Glasgow based design studio has unveiled a playful new wallpaper covering, Wee Pinyin.  The design derives from the brands’ Pinyin Tree pattern and originated when Co-Founder and Director Paul Simmons noticed the beauty of spontaneous ink mop marks blotched across the studio floor. The mop marks were then translated onto wallpaper to create the basis of the design.  

Wee Pinyin Warm Mint

Wee Pinyin has been created on a smaller scale to Pinyin Tree, on 52cm wide wallpaper and in a new range of colours. Although the pattern constantly changes throughout the 10m roll, part of the design repeats every metre so the wallpaper can be cleverly joined together.

Wee Pinyin Ground Barley

The playful blotches of colour mixed with painterly techniques are layered delicately over tree branches to create an oriental aesthetic. Pinyin is in fact, a translation of ‘ink brushes’ from Chinese.

Wee Pinyin Rouge Lacquer

The tones used for Wee Pinyin vary from blush to stronger pinks and mint greens creating exquisite designs to suit a range of interior spaces. 

Wee Pinyin Risotto

Wee Pinyin joins Timorous Beasties oriental inspired designs including the much-loved and celebrated Matzu Tree wallcovering and fabric.

The geometric pine motif with swirls, smudges and sponge-prints is perhaps the closest textile representation of wind harnessed as pattern and repeat.

Birdbranch also echoes an oriental aesthetic and is available in a range of colours as wallpaper, wallpaper panels and fabrics.
