Dupenny was thought up in 2009 by the rather gorgeous and supremely talented Dupen-hopkins, and is based in one of my absolute fave places in the whole world: Brighton. Dupenny are the epitome of fun: Creating wallpaper, homewares and ceramics, all lovingly made, and sporting their cheeky retro themes. What initially grabbed my attention was Dupenny's ability to keep it simple: all black and white in colour, yet never ever distracting from the print itself. Dupenny as a whole is what I would call fun - yes, not everyone will like cheeky burlesque girls emblazoned on their walls, but why not bring a little 'you know what' by adding some of the ceramics, or adding a little bit here and there, with their various homewares. For me, it's something that I just haven't seen anywhere else - yes, there is a big 'thing' for patterned wallpaper, but most of the time we are talking flowers and the like - Dupenny brings you something a little more, something to talk about.
Here I pick out my favourites:
