Botanically inspired Textiles
Wall Paper & Wall Panels
This six panel panoramic wall paper was chiefly inspired by the “Room of Birds” Stanza degli Ucelli in the Villa dei Medici in Rome painted by Jacopo Zucchi as well as the coffered ceiling of the long gallery at Parham House painted by Oliver Messell. The narrative of the panorama is injected with wit and whimsy here and there, with predator alongside their wary prey, shown in that quiet moment before being devoured . One panel is devoted to nocturnal beasties. Overall it celebrates the quiet beauty and wonder of nature within a light faux bois structure. There is dash of nostalgia for a forgotten time , a glorified Eden, a magical, untarnished, unhurried world that has sadly vanished.
Aviary panorama is customisable, with faux boix pillars that can be added to fill in areas as you can see below. There is also a narrow faux bois trellis, a third of the size, to assist with awkward transitions and a layer of grass that can be added to the base to assist customising the panel to differing heights
It can be ordered as a single panel, or any multiple of 1- 6

Eau de Nil
The alchemy of serendipity occurred when I put together unused floral motifs and created a lyrical symmetrical design. The inspiration sources are eclectic ranging from India, Holland, Hawaii, China and Turkey with plenty of reinventing and deconstruction along the way. The motifs work together, bound by colour and theme. It is available in four colours : Henna, Azure Rose & Eau de Nil
