Wallpaper with a Story

Inspiration & Motivation
I grew up in the English countryside, with its lovely corners of unspoilt land and beautiful, wild flora and fauna. I’ve lived mostly in cities since then, and it’s made me very aware of the rural – urban contrast, and the evident disconnection we have with nature and its amazing systems. I use design to highlight these invaluable natural rhythms and inspire a stronger connection with nature, in both the countryside and the city. I now live in Norfolk.
Alongside each wallpaper I hand print a little book. This wallpaper story features nine summer wildflowers:
"Wildflowers are a beautiful part of our landscapes, providing a vital habitat for wildlife and an essential, rich food source for bees. This first wallpaper story features nine summer wildflowers that are native across Europe and the UK, which are especially fabulous for bumblebees.
As a result of a huge loss of natural habitat, the bumblebee, honeybee and many other precious insects are in alarming decline. If bees disappear, so do the flowers, fruit, vegetables and nuts that rely on insect pollination to reproduce successfully.
Wallpaper with a Story lifts the wildflower into the limelight, to celebrate and show off its beauty and function, in support of the crucial conservation of our natural landscapes and wildlife."
