Zag zag zig wallpaper March 19, 2019 12:00
This graphic black and white image was first hand drawn (no ruler) and then repeated digitally. I am not a fan of straight lines, they are too regimented for me. I'm a bit of a rebel and want my images to show the wibbles and wobbles, I will not conform!
Three head bird wallpaper March 12, 2019 12:00
This wallpaper has been an ongoing project for a few years. I took an image of a sparrow and wanted it to look wooden, like an ancient tree. There were a lot of attempts to make it look right and I ended up discarding it for ages, something wasn't right about it. Recently I was going through my archive and came across this image again. I had a fresh mind and a clearer idea where I wanted it to go and it finally paid off...
Ice cream you scream wallpaper February 26, 2019 12:00
This is my favorite of the new wallpapers. I was so pleased that I could draw a rabbit that looks like a rabbit! Everything about it gives me joy as it all seems to marry so well. Mad, fun, bright and surreal.
Boom wallpaper February 19, 2019 12:00
Sometimes I put aside a chunk of time to do some sketching of any old thing that I fancy. Some of this work ends up in the bin and some of it sits on my computer under new ideas for months, even years, until I am ready to look at it again. I may not like a sketch but something about it makes me keep it. Some of my best work has come out of a drawing that I have done and forgotten, and then I revisit and realise its potential. This is when I produce my best work I feel.
Leopard fire wallpaper February 12, 2019 12:00
I have been working hard on a whole new set of designs for wallpaper and prints for the last six months or so.
I love animal prints but never attempted to do one myself until now. Whilst drawing this I was thinking of a big colourful mystical beast roaming around. I like this design because it would suit a lot of interior products too such as carpets, rugs and bedspreads. Ideas are flowing...
Lola Crest Bedroom update January 1, 2019 12:00
We love this beautiful bedroom update using Lola Crest wallpaper. It's such a great feeling when someone takes the time to send in pictures of the finished room where they have used your wallpaper. The Lola Crest wallpaper was used by a long term customer Charlotte, who became a friend. We call her our number one fan because she has loved and supported our brand for many years, from when we started in fashion until today doing interiors .
This design means a lot to Charlotte and her husband, as she purchased a top from us with the Lola Crest on it and met her husband wearing it. They now have this wallpaper in their first home bought together.

Simply Southport April 2017 article May 25, 2017 12:00
Thanks a million to Lauren Holden for featuring us her Spring Interior round up in Simply Southport magazine. She featured our illustrated super-wide textured wallpaper as a kitsch but cool way to make a statement.
Please note there is a slight typo - our Skull Rose wallpaper is £150 per panel (1.25 metres wide x 1 metre drop) rather than £150 per roll.
Pelirocco rocks the BMC April 28, 2017 12:00
Our phones have been blowing up this week with compliments about Hotel Pelirocco bar decorated with our wallpaper. Turns out that it was one of the Brighton Music Conference 2017 venues and our mates in the music industry were pleasantly surprised to discover our art mixed with the laid back Pelirocco vibe.
