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. ‘Michelle’ in blue references the bounty of Kangaroo plant and Pigweed after the rains, rich food sources for – Kangaroos of course! If you have a connection to the flora & fauna of Australia or the cultural heritage of it’s indigenous peoples, then these designs will hold great appeal.
Conversely, from a decorative perspective, small scale sprig wallpapers, such as this, are a useful device for adding depth and interest, where large scale or statement wallpapers are not required. ‘Michelle’ in blue is a particularly pretty wallpaper – we used it in an entrance hall as an uplifting and colourful contrast to the surrounding neutral walls, but we’d happily paper a whole room in this charming print – above panelled dado in a dining room for example, or in a bedroom, nursery or entrance hall.
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.
