The Product: ‘Michelle’ floral Aboriginal symbols wallpaper
This nature-inspired, floral Aboriginal symbols wallpaper is rich in colour and detail. The design forms part of a unique collection of wallpapers brought to life by the creative team at Bay Gallery Home, in collaboration with talented indigenous Aboriginal artists in Australia. The brand supports indigenous Aboriginal communities by ensuring a proportion of each sale goes back to the artists. Hence, this helps maintain the artists’ connections with their indigenous lands.
The wallpapers are authentic reproductions of original artworks on canvas. Each design is named after the indigenous Aboriginal artist. They depict flora indigenous to the Australian Outback, traditionally used for bush medicines and bush ‘tucker’. ‘Michelle’ in blue references the bounty of Kangaroo plant and Pigweed after the rains, rich food sources for – Kangaroos of course! These designs will hold particular appeal if you have a connection with the landscape, Aboriginal culture or indigenous peoples of Australia.
Add depth and interest with small scale, patterned wallpapers such as this ‘floral sprig’ design. A particularly pretty wallpaper, we used this blue floral ‘Michelle’ print in an entrance hall, as an uplifting and colourful contrast with adjacent neutral walls. However, we’d happily paper a whole room in this charming print – above panelled dado in a dining room for example, or in a bedroom, nursery or entrance hall.
Each roll of Aboriginal art wallpaper measures approximately 52cm wide (trimmed width). The rolls are each 10.05m in length. The pattern repeat is 62.2cm (straight). Each roll covers an area of approximately 5.23 metres squared. The wallpaper is coated, non-woven and manufactured in and distributed from the UK.
