14 Jan Grown-up animal prints
Animal print wallpaper doesn’t have to be for nurseries and playrooms. Two of my current favourites are the Pheasant wallpaper from PatternSpy (£87 a roll), which being handprinted looks so much better in the flesh than it does in a flat photograph, and the ever popular Flamingoes wallpaper from Cole & Son (£76 a roll from Amara).
Barneby Gates’ fresh take on wallpaper design comes from the combined skills of talented design duo Vanessa Barneby (Ex Vogue Living Editor who studied decorative painting and trompe l’oeil at Hampstead Decorative Arts) and exhibited artist Alice Gates (Master in Fine Art at The City & Guilds London Art School). Quintessentially English, their designs ooze style with a sense of humour.
