Maximalism alert ! Meet Modern Love our latest digital designers...

Published on , in News.

Take a former fashion editor for Elle, combine with an illustrator/fashion designer ... and the result is MODERN LOVE.  They've collaborated with Escada, Christian Dior, Liberty... and now Tektura ! 

Illustrator and fashion designer Sarah Arnett and former Elle fashion editor Kim Hunt are Modern Love. Based in Brighton, they hail from the world of high end fashion.

Now they're moving into interiors and have created a set of stunning murals exclusively for Tektura. Let's have a look...

Each mural is designed to reach 3 metres high and span walls 5 metres wide.  Designs can be repeated for longer walls. 

There's a strong oriental influence in many of Modern Love designs - in Kyoto magnolia trees climb up from the ground, where Japanese-inspired pattern picks out each contour, rise and fall of the land.  Intricately detailed damasks create the clouds and sky.

Mystical landscapes are saturated with colour and a thousand tiny details.  Influenced by ancient art, oriental pattern, African vibes and Asian artefacts, Sarah and Kim are modern day storytellers.  


A kaleidoscope of colour, clashing pattern and detail: Wonderland has everything. To appreciate each detail, get up close. 

A stairway leads you to the Secret Garden where we find campaniles and minarets tucked away behind palms and ferns. 


Sarah and Kim (aka Modern Love) have journeyed the world; collecting artefacts, fabrics and memories along the way. Cabinet of Curiosities is their story - of the people they've met, the places they've been.  Each item in the cabinet has a tale to tell. 

Look closely and you'll find a little monkey hidden amongst the palms.  Available in three shades : pale, bronze and dark - each version of Jungle Palms creates a stunning backdrop for commercial and residential schemes alike.

And a homage to Frida Kahlo - this intricate garden scene bursts with colour, pattern and sheer zest for life. 

All designs are offered as wallcovering, window film or acrylic panels.  Sarah and Kim will also undertake commissions to create a totally unique made-to-measure design for clients, as well as fabrics and upholstery.  If you're interested find out more here...
