The Product: ‘Melita’ pastel wallpaper from Aboriginal artwork
This nature-inspired, Aboriginal pastel wallpaper is subtle in colour yet rich in 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 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’. ‘Melita’ in soft pink, lilac and saffron hues, references the changing light and changing seasons of the Outback’s botanical landscape. 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. We can’t emphasise enough how beautiful this pastel wallpaper version of the Aboriginal decorative aesthetic this is. The colours are softer and more muted than the other colourways but with just as much vibrancy and detail. An incredibly pretty option for a feature wall in a bedroom or baby’s nursery. Head to Ferm Living to accessorize pretty nursery walls with clean-lined Danish design for kid’s rooms or Bobo Kids for a stylish selection of kid’s furniture. This beautiful wallpaper is essentially all-over art for your walls. ‘Melita’ is our favourite design from the collection.
