The Product: ‘Betty’ Aboriginal culture wallpaper in pink
This nature-inspired, Aboriginal culture wallpaper is rich in colour and detail. The design forms part of a unique collection of wallpapers brought to life by the creative team at Bay Gallery Home, in collaboration with talented indigenous Aboriginal artists in Australia. The brand supports indigenous Aboriginal communities by ensuring a proportion of each sale goes back to the artists. Hence, this helps maintain the artists’ connections with their indigenous lands.
The wallpapers are authentic reproductions of original artworks on canvas. Each design is named after the indigenous Aboriginal artist. They depict flora indigenous to the Australian Outback, traditionally used for bush medicines and bush ‘tucker’. ‘Betty’ in pink references the changing light and changing seasons. Furthermore, these designs will hold particular appeal if you have a connection with the landscape, Aboriginal culture or indigenous peoples of Australia.
Add depth and interest with small scale, patterned wallpapers. Pink being flattering for one’s skin tone – we think this wallpaper would work wonderfully well in a young lady’s bedroom, in a dressing room, entrance hall or downstairs WC where we might just wrap walls and ceiling (!). This is the one room in the house, usually devoid of daylight, where you need great mood lighting, jewel-tones and instant ‘Wow!’ factor. Furthermore, layer up with a palette of whites for your soft furnishings. Complement this with vintage or antique whitewashed furniture and clean-lined, modern accessories for an eclectic, directional look. Some good sources of French or Scandinavian antiques are Kent supplier Nikki Page Antiques or Brighton-based Three Angels.
