The Product: ‘Lilly’ botanical Aboriginal dot painting wallpaper
A richly-hued, botanical wallpaper taken from an Aboriginal dot painting on canvas. 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. Furthermore, 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’. ‘Lilly’ references the landscape after the rains, when plants are abundant and ready for harvesting. If you have a connection with the landscape, culture or indigenous peoples of Australia, these designs will hold particular appeal.
Add depth and interest with small scale patterned wallpapers. We teamed this paper with Little Greene‘s ‘Ashes of Roses’ paint on adjacent walls, in a study desk niche. However, this paper also works well on a larger ‘feature’ wall. Be sure to balance the surrounding paint colours, so they are of similar intensity in terms of depth and tone.
Each roll of wallpaper measures approximately 52cm wide (trimmed width). The rolls measure 10.05m in length. The pattern repeat is 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. Numerous wallpaper calculator tools are available online. However, should you require any assistance working out how many rolls you need, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
