NEW from Scion – The collection name WABI SABI originates from a Japanese philosophy, which celebrates the beauty of imperfection. Painterly brushstrokes, stripes, chevrons, ikats, batiks, tie-dyes, ink spots, ombrés and floral motifs all fuse effortlessly to create an understated, sometimes mis-matched yet always harmonious interior. The cloth is 100% cotton and is suitable for drapery, accessories and light upholstery.
And priced so well with most at $64/m+10%gst
I was thrilled to see an advertisement in the Feb/March 2013 Belle Magazine (p.38), for ‘HELIODOR’ Wallcovering Collection by Arte. I have just installed this stunning and ‘very’ special grassweave ‘LEAF’ design 49052 at my new apartment – we all love it! And the colour mood changes all day, from pewter to charcoal to an almost deep petrol green and swampy grey/brown (oh doesn’t that sound just delicious!!).
Each of the designs in this stunning collection are hand-woven inlaid wallcoverings, made from natural plant fibres on a shimmering metallic ground, with selection of rich colours in each design. The interesting thing is that the design is created by the grassweave being cut and turned, which simply shifts the the way the light strikes it and making the pattern. This wallpaper is sold by the metre. Though we don’t stock Arte in our online shop, we can supply any of these exclusive designer Arte wallpaper and Arte fabric products - email us for more information and for pricing. Design names: Leaf, Cube, Scale.
And here’s a pic of Graham installing our gorgeous ‘LEAF’ wallpaper.

Sanderson launches three classic English collections, Richmond Hill Prints, Richmond Hill Weaves & Richmond Hill Wallpapers. Following the English tradition of seeking inspiration from around the globe, the design influences for these collections hail from as far afield as India, China and Europe. Partly archive inspired and partly original imagery, the print and wallpaper collections showcase the expertise and skill of the Sanderson design team, with each designer demonstrating his or her own distinctive style in the beautiful, hand painted original artwork. PRINTS & WEAVES priced from $95/m +10%gst …WALLPAPERS priced from $90/roll +10%gst
Within the Richmond Hill PRINT collection, modern engraving & print techniques (including digital printing which is used to produce two of the designs) allow a delicacy of tone, texture and detail previously not possible. These techniques have been put to use in a subtle but effective way – a testament to the combined skills of designers, engravers, colourists and printers, who together brought the collection to fruition.
Richmond Hill WEAVES is a collection of four classic weave qualities woven with small and medium scale patterns. Fibres such as cotton, linen and viscose have been used for their soft drape, natural feel and good abrasion performance.
The Richmond Hill WALLPAPER collection includes designs that either coordinate with the prints or complement them in colour and style. Each of these elegant wallpapers stand alone as classic patterns that will enhance both contemporary and traditional interiors in a soft useable colour palette.

A Brisbane customer allowed us to share a photo of their newly completed guest powder room, that features Harlequin ‘ENTICE’ wallpaper. It is so elegant and in this colourway Silver Sparkel, Putty & White (110096) it finishes the room so beautifully. The lighter colour trees have tiny crystal beads that shimmer ever so subtly (no, the kids won’t be able to pick them off!). The room was lovely to begin with, but the wallpaper just takes it to a whole new level.

We received a lovely email from a customer in Dubbo, NSW, saying how much they absolutely love their Schumacher ‘Kelly Wearstler’ IMPERIAL TRELLIS wallpaper splashback. The colour is ‘Charcoal’ – SKU5003361 and we agree it looks very striking with the charcoal cabinets. We recommended installing the wallpaper in the usual manner, and then covering and sealing with toughened glass, as you would a normal glass splashback. Yes! it is a very expensive wallpaper, but, it looks just amazing – thankyou for sharing your photo with us Rachel.
