This wallpaper forms part of a wonderful and unique collection of wallpapers brought to life by the creative team at Bay Gallery Home in collaboration with a group of talented Aboriginal artists back in Australia.
Named after each individual artist, the wallpapers are authentic reproductions of original artworks on canvas (see imagery) and each depicts flora indigenous to the Australian outback, many of which are used for bush medicines and bush tucker. ‘Lilly’ in green references the landscape after the rains, when plants are in abundance and ready for harvesting. If you have a connection to the landscape, culture or country of Australia or it’s indigenous peoples then these designs will hold great appeal.
Conversely, from a purely decorative perspective, small scale patterned wallpapers are a useful device for adding depth and interest to a space, where large scale or statement wallpapers are not called for. We teamed this paper with Little Greene‘s ‘Ashes of Roses’ paint on adjacent walls, in this study desk niche. But this paper would also work well as a full feature wall. And no, ‘feature walls’ are not over! You just have to balance surrounding paint colours so they are of a similar intensity in terms of depth and tone.
Bay Gallery Home helps to support Aboriginal communities by ensuring that a proportion of each sale goes back to the artists thereby helping to maintain the artists’ connections with their indigenous lands.
Each roll of wallpaper measures approximately 52cm wide (trimmed width) and 10.05m in length with a pattern repeat of 62.2cm (straight). Each roll covers an area of approximately 5.23 metres squared. The wallpaper is coated, non-woven and manufactured in and distributed from the UK.
