SCROLL FOR GALLERY
Carmine Lake, brainchild of creative duo Rachael Doble (designer) and Simon Critchley (artist) has lauched a set of new unique wallpapers. Set on a black background, there are three versions, bee (Bombus Botanicus), dragonfly (Anisoptera Botanicus) and stag-beetle (Lucanidea Botanicus).
These highly detailed and fascinatingly beautiful bugs are framed by their dark background, perfect for a room that will often be used at night or with subdued lighting. So often wallpapers are chosen and roomsets shown in natural daylight but for some rooms that is not the way they tend to be used. A dark wallpaper in the right space can be hugely atmospheric – think of the growing number of restaurants and bars choosing dark and moody colour palettes.
All 3 wallpapers, available from carminelake.com.
Rachael and Simon set up Carmine Lake in 2016, combining their skills to create something a bit different in the wallpaper and fabric world. Rachael comes from a fashion, textile and interiors background and Simon is an illustrator. Their designs can be eye-popping fun or calm and elegant.
