We worked with artist Alexis Snell, a printmaker who works with beautifully unique linocuts to create Passion Flower wallpaper. Known for her strange, dark, angular illustrations that look as if they’ve just emerged from a fairytale, Alexis’s work can been seen illustrating many books and her designs have also been commissioned by the Victoria and Albert Museum.
This traditionally printed lilac and silver paper is printed in England and is perfect to add a touch of pattern and colour to a room. As a new interpretation on a traditional theme, the paper works well in both period and contemporary homes. The pattern really comes alive when the silver flowers catch the light, and used in an alcove or as a deep border above a picture rail it can provide an instant update to a grey 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
We have retained the organic feel of this bold lino cut design by using the surface printing technique, the oldest automated printing method, which very closely replicates lino printing, leaving a thick layer of ink on the surface of the paper which gives a slightly textured handmade feel to the wallpaper. This also makes the wallpaper very hardwearing.
