  • She Chose Science superwide wallpaper

    Select to buy sample or panel

    Painterly wallpaper brings a light and airy feel whilst adding interest and colour.

    Available as two panels which can be purchased separately, each measuring 140cm x 300cm (55” x 118”).

    Design Notes

    Science meets art in this intriguing wallpaper from artist Sarah Thornton. Taking inspiration from vintage graph paper, Sarah explores the juxtaposition between the rigidity of science and the freedoms of the natural world.

    Featuring delicate birds painted in multi-coloured squares on a white grid pattern, 'She Chose Science' cleverly expresses our struggle to 'remain within the lines' – in life as well as in art. Continuing Sarah's exploration of the relationship between order and chaos, this compelling design has a childlike naivety which invites you to fill in the blanks.

    Sarah's artwork has been faithfully reproduced onto this unique wallpaper, revealing the nuances of her pencil markings and the imperfections of the fluid, watercolour squares. The extra large pattern repeat makes this wallpaper perfectly suited to very large spaces such as a garden room, studio or play room.

    'She Chose Science' works particularly well when used in conjunction with Sarah Thornton's other design, the vivid 'Rita Does Jazz' velvet, because of the synchronicity of the colour palettes.

    For use in heavier wear areas, we recommend protecting this wallpaper with a decorator's vanish such as Polyvine Decorator's Varnish in Clear Dead Flat without altering its appearance.

    My daughter and I chose this wallpaper for one wall in her bedroom. It looks absolutely stunning and she is so pleased with it. I love the combination of the beautiful, colourful birds against the graphic background. The birds gain depth and shape from the squares and it feels like each square is a different colour. It's a lovely juxtaposition of order and chaos, freedom and constraint, art and science and has a real sense of fun. On a practical level - this wall paper will go with pretty much any paint colour too!
