New Wallpaper Designs from Abigail Edwards

Brambleweb Dusk Wallpaper by Abigail Edwards

You would think that someone with a wallpaper obsession as big as mine would find it very difficult to select just one paper as an outright favourite. You would however be wrong. In March of last year, I came across a wallpaper that I fell absolutely head over heals in love with and since that time no wallpaper has managed to steal the top spot. That wallpaper was Owls of the British Isles by designer and illustrator Abigail Edwards and since I first set eyes upon it I have been engaged in a long-standing love affair with it.

So I was mighty excited when I bumped into Abigail at Tent London earlier this year and discovered that she has just released a new range of wallpapers that are ALMOST as nice as Owls of the British Isles…but not quite! The two new papers are called Brambleweb and Wilson’s Crystals. Inspired by Abigail’s fascination for fairytales, Brambleweb is a hand-drawn design of never-ending tangled brambles like those that surrounded Briar Rose in the castle where she lay sleeping for 100 years.

Wilson’s Crystals is an intricate hand-drawn design that features 30 different snowflakes, each one drawn individually and arranged in a graphic retro pattern. This new design is inspired by the work of Wilson Bentley, a photographer who spent 50 years of his life photographing over 5,000 snowflakes and in doing so discovered that no two snowflakes are exactly alike.

Living beside the sea I also like the Seascape wallpaper by Abigail, but so far, none of these papers have stolen my heart as much as the Owls of the British Isles. What about you guys? Do you have a favourite wallpaper?
