Rich, golden opulence.
From afar this gorgeous wallpaper is a fun and abstract design but on closer inspection the architectural details from Sir John Soane and Robert Adam's drawings can be seen. The Neoclassical ceiling painting motifs of intertwining bodies, cherubs, horses and textiles layered on top of each other are inspired from a sketch by Sir James Thornhill in 1715 of the Queen's State Bed Chamber ceiling at Hampton Court Palace.
This layering of motifs evokes the way one might find in a historical home layers of paper and paint built up over time and waiting to be uncovered. Traces of different centuries and eras combine together to say something new.
