Entomologist’s Garden Wallpaper





‘Every year a botanist would bring plant specimens collected from faraway lands for the tropical greenhouse. The Duchess Violacea Macrobothrys was rather taken with the dashing entomologist who accompanied the botanist’s visit to the house that spring and whilst they peered into glass display cases of butterflies, grasshoppers and beetles a spark flickered back and forth between them. Outside in the garden the peacock paused to admire his reflection in the window and saw the spark.’

Discover our wallpaper and silk cushions in this highly detailed jungle-luxe-bug design with an English feel in a vintage colour palette. Drawn to the idea of an Entomologist’s garden in the jungle with tropical palms, insects, Claire’s inspiration came from historical entomology and botanical prints. Often set out in oblongs they feel like peering into someone’s carefully arranged trays of insects or plant specimens and this informs the layout of the half drop repeat within the design. It also peaked Claire’s imagination as to who might have arranged them.

Hanging instructions:
Please read these instructions below carefully before hanging your wallpaper.
It is advisable that a professional wallpaperer is used.


  • Walls should be clean, dry and even.
    Remove any old wallpaper and loose paint.
  • Roughen painted surfaces with sandpaper.
  • For best results it is recommended that wallpapers are crossed lined using a good quality lining paper.
  • Sizing the lining paper will aid adhesion.
  • Lining should be allowed to dry out completely before hanging your wallpaper.

Pasting and hanging:

  • This is a paste the wall product. No soaking required.
  • The decorator should paste the wall and not the back of the wallpaper.
  • A good quality, solvent free, fungicide protected ready-mixed ‘tub’ adhesive – specifically for paste the
    wall non-woven papers should be used.
  • Paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hang one length at a time, to an area slightly wider than width of the paper.
  • Butt joints and use a decorators brush to smooth down the wallpaper working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles.
  • Avoid squeezing paste out of the joints and ensure paste does not get onto the brush or roller.
  • No paste should be allowed to come into contact with the surface and hands should be kept clean and dry whilst hanging the wallpaper.
  • Paste will damage the surface. We cannot accept responsibility for marks or damage caused by paste.
  • Should any paste have been allowed to come into contact with the surface, it should be lightly sponged whilst still moist, using a clean damp sponge.
