Caravan – Quercus & Co

09 Nov

I posted on Sydney based wallpaper company Quercus & Co a couple of months ago on their range of Australian flora and fauna designed wallpaper.  Well in time for those looking to do a spring / summer make over Quercus & Co have just launched their bohemian inspired “Caravan” Collection.  The collection is based on vintage fabrics and embroideries from Europe and the Middle East, and the colours and tones are disigned to make the paper look like it is melded like paint to your wall.

Quercus Inspiration Board – Work in Progress

If you love the patterns, and wallpaper is not your thing then I think they would look just as good framed up to give you a less permanent decoration.

There are five designs in the collection, and if you want to take yours a little further they also can custom add a     special “dip dye” effect using special dyes to the bottom of your paper, this is tailor made to suit the dimensions of your walls…….


This has to be one of my favourites… Based on the vintage diamond Kilim, this wallpaper is designed with a variation of tones to give an effect of age and history…that vintage worn quality.


The rustic charm of Kilim is intended to look as if the design has been painted directly onto the walls.


Inspired by the textiles of Persia the Paisley design is a joyful play on florals…


This pattern is inspired by the Florence Bargello or “Flame Stitch” prevalent in the 17th century embroidered cloth.


Crewel is inspired by the freestyle “crewel work” embroidery style.

Dip Dye

My ultimate favourite is the option to add a little extra with the option to customise your wallpaper for that Dip Dye effect.  Perfect to add a little Bohemian Hippy style…

Let me know what you think…… mean while on with the colourful journey.

    These are exquisite. So much talent and creativity. I have always loved wall paper – ever since I started to learn about William Morris.

      I love William Morris too! I am starting to fall for wallpaper again after the 80’s memories of scraping the stuff off the walls and vowing never to touch wallpaper again! But I think technology has advanced to make it much easier to remove! 🙂

        I was there in the 80’s with the scraping. Remember the glue?! AAGH. But, wallpaper is having a rebirth. Great post!

    Rugs for the walls…how original? They also look like colorful quilts too. I don’t think I could hang things over these.

      I know, they are like little works of art in themselves!
