Khulu, meaning ‘most important’ is a very apt name for this grand design featuring classical vases entwined with leopards, parrots, lions and other African animals. This fabulous wallpaper with its watercoloured paintings pays tribute to those renowned vessels recognised today as ‘modern day collectables’ by auction houses such as Christie’s, Bonhams and Sotherbys and displayed in galleries and private collections around the world. Printed to an impressive wide 68.5cm repeat, the design is offered in four colourways including soft pinks and oranges on pale cream, a host of China blues on ivory, vivid greens and charcoal on ivory and finally a dramatic petrol and emerald on midnight blue.

This is part of the 'Ardmore' collection by Cole & Son. A charming and stylish new range of wallpapers and borders in collaboration with Ardmore Ceramic Art celebrating African traditions and culture. Drawing inspiration from Ardmore’s colourful and quirky ceramics the collection explores Africa’s exotic flora and majestic fauna: from rare birds to big cats, elephants, rhinos and mischievous monkeys; as well as the beautiful patterns of Zulu beadwork and woven basket ware.
Colour palettes are drawn from the natural landscape: from the chalky, ochred desert plains and sun-bleached shimmering outcrops to the vibrant fresh greens of water-kissed rainforests and exotic colourings of native flora and fauna. The result, a strikingly sophisticated collection of wallpapers that includes soft and subtle explorations of the majestic landscape as well as colourful creations capturing the vibrancy of traditional African culture.
