The wood block feel of 'Culpeper', with it's lifesize flowers, is joyous and bold. Mughal flower paintings and carvings were the catalyst for this design, alongside an old edition of 'Culpeper's Complete Herbal', a gift to Neisha as a child from her grandfather. Part of our new 'Poppaea' wallpaper collection, now available exclusively through our worldwide distributor Turnell & Gigon.
Zig-zag geometrics decorating the walls of African slave quarters at Villa Poppaea kick started 'Furrow'. Neisha says 'I liked the idea of a chain link as an ironical nod to being chained in by ball and chain, but it also reminded me of a tractor tyre tread, and the furrows in a field.' Part of our new 'Poppaea wallpaper collection, now available exclusively through our worldwide distributor Turnell & Gigon.
17th Century Indienne flower designs formed part of the inspiration for 'Rose', an elegant, rambling climber with burgeoning fantasy roses.

Now available exclusively through our worldwide distributor Turnell & Gigon.
