Barneby Gates wallpapers

This hip range of fabulous wallpapers takes classical ideas and gives them a contemporary twist. Designed and produced by illustrator and textile designer Alice Gates and former Living Editor at British Vogue Vanessa Barneby, the wallpapers are visually stunning while a closer look reveals the designers’ wry sense of humour.

I was privileged to get a sneak preview of the collection while I was working with David Nicholls, Design Editor at the Telegraph Magazine, and I’ve been meaning to add them to my blog ever since. The papers range from collages of nostalgic British photographic prints, to damask stag and thistle patterns and iconic heraldry motifs. Prices are from £65 – £75 per roll (width 52cm length 10m).
