We worked with artist Alexis Snell, a printmaker who works with beautifully unique linocuts to create Passion Flower wallpaper.
The dark opulence of this wallpaper is reminiscent of gothic interiors, with twisting, muted gold floral patterns laid into midnight black. When the flowers catch the light, they come alive to dance on the paper and showcase the abstract print in all its glory.
The bold lino cut design has been re-created onto this heavyweight wallpaper using a surface printing technique to perfectly replicate the texture and look of the original hand made print.
Passion Flower works well in an alcove or as a deep border above a picture rail. It’s perfect for bringing a touch of dark maximalism to a room, and when combined with pastel shades adds interest to a mid century scheme.
“I like things that are a bit dark and strange and I'm always drawn to a good story. A flea market, a late night drunken conversation, an old advert or a matchbox might get me thinking about a new idea. Inspiration and where you find it is always a bit of a mystery. Lyrics of songs, wandering about car boot sales, getting sucked into films, a visit to an odd town….for me the best ideas come when my head is switching off from work." - Alexis Snell
