Mercia Vines Wallpaper
Mercia Vines Wallpaper

(Price above is per sample – please email us for the full pricelist.) 

This pattern shows English species suggested by the imaginary species in Dr Suess’s The Lorax. It is organised in an ogee pattern, made of ribbons. They are reminiscent of the double helix of the DNA that determines how we all turn out, every living thing, and of chain link fences, and breaking through them to get out into nature.

The humming fish are represented by great crested newts, the precious truffula trees are clover flowers whilst the playful barballoots are the red squirrels. The bees which also feature in a companion print are short-haired bumblebees – a wonderful conservation success story as they were extinct in the UK but acres of flower-rich meadows were planted in Kent, the bees were reintroduced and now buzz about with other rare bees benefitting from this rich habitat. Other flowers include several species of clover, Pheasant’s eye, crested cowheat, Stinking iris, whorled millifoil, Carthusian pinks, Herb Paris, wintergreen and blossoms of a rare old English breed a apple. Great great grandfather snail is the lagoon spire snail (thought extinct, but recently found in Chichester harbour).

Companion prints include Mercia Ribbons and Mercia Bees, featuring details from this larger scale design.

Indigo Paisley Paramecium wallpape
Paisley Paramecium Wallpaper

(Price above is per sample – please email us for the full pricelist.) 

(Also, all colours are available on both paper bases and also at both scales, although we may not offer that specific sample. If your combo is not available, we suggest ordering the colour you want to get the process started.) 

Paisley Paramecium is a textile and wallpaper design celebrating the web of micro-organisms that forms the base of the pyramid of all life. The inspiration for this design was a play on the traditional tear-drop shape of the classic paisley motif resembling a unicellular organism called a paramecium.

The species in this design are aquatic, including many free-floating plankton upon whom the health of all marine creatures depends. Phytoplankton are also of serious conservation concern – warming oceans have caused population declines of 40% since 1950. Change is desperately needed in how we perceive our interconnectedness within, and dependence upon, the web of life.

As well as evoking droplets of water as well as using the conventions of the paisley design. It is also reminiscent of stitching and lace, as the fabric of nature is fragile and intricately interwoven and embellished. The colouration is quite free, and can be further expanded upon in the future, as many of these species are really transparent.

To learn more about the design, please check out the blog post.

This is an eco-friendly Fine gicleé digitally-printed “real” wallpaper. It is printed in the UK on a natural non-woven cellulose-based substrate made from recycled materials – recycled polyester (PET) fibre and recycled wood pulp. The production process is solvent free with minimal waste and energy inputs.

The Carolina Tree of Life collection celebrates the natural history of the

17th Century tree of life prints. It depicts flora and fauna of the region
including: the extinct Carolina parakeet feeding on cockleburrs, and the
Monarch butterfly (whose milkweed dependent migratory life cycle is critically
endangered). Also present are carnivorous native plants such as the Venus
flytrap and the Mountain Sweet pitcher plant and wildflowers like the Devil’s
paintbrush, Grass of Parnassus and Gray’s lily. Flying creatures include a
Yellow-bellied sapsucker, a Luna moth and a Painted bunting. The black-
chinned red salamander is native to the southern Appalachians, which
have the greatest diversity of salamanders in the world.

Cactus Restaurant
Cactus Mexicanos Wallpaper

(Price above is per sample – please email us for the full pricelist.) 

This design is the culmination of several years Dr Susy Paisley spent living in, and besotted with, Mexico. It celebrates the incredible diversity of Mexican cacti. Mexico is one of the world’s centre of endemism for this group of plants, and includes marvels like the Creeping Devil, a cactus in this design which actually moves across the desert floor! Cacti are enjoying a new popularity, but globally, one out of three cacti is in need of conservation attention. The design includes the Chisos Mountain hedgehog cactus, hallucinogenic Peyote, a critically endangered dragonfruit, which forms the long tendrils in the design, and lesser long-nosed bat (an essential pollinator for cacti) and the iconic saguaro and crested saguaro cacti.

Madidi Cream Medium
Madidi Clouds Wallpaper

(Price above is per sample – please email us for the full pricelist.) 

The Andean spectacled bear, a mysterious and endangered species and inspiration for Paddington Bear, was the focus of my years of study in the Andean cloud forest of Bolivia’s Madidi National Park. During long periods spent alone for my research, I became obsessed with the intricate patterns and colour around me. Lichens, thin-lipped frogs, hummingbirds and toucans, along with my bears, were the subjects of my detailed drawings, and have formed the basis of this design. The composition of the design itself was inspired by a Josef Frank design from 1938 called Anakreon. His design was based on a 3,500-year-old fresco, discovered by a friend of Frank’s, from the palace in Knossos on Crete.

The design repeats once across the 70cm width of the wallpaper on the medium scale design. This design is also available in a large scale on a wide width wallpaper, at 137cm.

With exquisite botanical detail, this design builds on biophilic passion in interiors for honouring the natural world. Furthermore, for every roll of wallpaper sold, 100m2 of critical wild Habitat is preserved through World Land Trust.

(Price above is per sample – please email us for the full pricelist.) 

The English Mercia collection is Susy Paisley’s tribute to one of the greatest
conservation parables ever written, The Lorax by Dr Seuss. The species in

kingdom of Mercia. The humming fish are represented by great crested
newts, the precious truffula trees are clover flowers whilst the playful
barballoots are the red squirrels. The bees which also feature in a
companion print are short-haired bumblebees – a wonderful conservation
success story as they were extinct in the UK but acres of flower-rich
meadows were planted in Kent, the bees were reintroduced and are now
thriving. Other flowers include several species of clover, Pheasant’s eye.

As well as Echinacea purpurea, the most common of the coneflowers, this design features Echinacea leavigata, an endangered coneflower native to North Carolina.

Madidi Hummingbirds Oxblood
Madidi Hummingbirds Wallpaper

(Price above is per sample – please email us for the full pricelist.) 

The Madidi Hummingbirds design is a tribute to the incredible diversity of Andean hummingbirds, of which there are 140 different species. This design features Andean Hillstars, Great Sapphirewings, and Giant Hummingbirds. These super-heroic little birds can fly at speeds which, relative to body length, are greater than any other vertebrate, with wing-speeds of over 80 beats per second. They also serve as specific pollinators for many flowers such as those in the Puya genus. The bases of these bromeliads are important bear foods and many have beautiful turquoise flowers. They also have natural antifreeze and some of the longest flower spikes in the world such as Puya raymondi, known as Queen of the Andes, the spherical plant bases and spikes depicted in this design. This plant grows to 15m (50ft) tall with 30,000 individual flowers when it blooms, which is once every one hundred years!

The contemporary design has quite an elegant structured style and a limited palate based around the blues and greens of the Puya flowers. With exquisite botanical detail, it builds upon the current passion in interiors for honouring the natural world. Furthermore, for every roll of wallpaper sold, 100m2 of critical wild habitat is preserved through World Land Trust.
