20 Sep Elephant Palm
This glorious new wallpaper from Barneby Gates features a trellis of palm trees and marching elephants, available in a striking combination of grey with elephants that glow gold when seen on an angle.
Ex Vogue Living editor, Vanessa Barneby and fellow Edinburgh graduate Alice Gates (pictured) design and print brilliant, humorous and vivid wallpapers and fabrics that are the ultimate in chic interiors.
All their designs start with a hand drawn motif that is developed into a design that works as a pattern repeat. Many of their papers use surface printing, a mechanised form of block printing, which uses thicker inks than most printing processes to give a lovely hand-painted look and feel. Colour is key to the design process and Elephant Palm is a perfect example of how this tequnique can be used to great effect.
Elephant Palm wallpaper by Barneby Gates is also available in soft ochre with denim, £87 roll from PatternSpy.com.
