It’s so important to have your wallpaper installed by an experienced installer. Serge from Prestige Wallpapering has installed a number of jobs for us over the last few years. The latest installation was of underwater wonderland with yellow flowers for some special clients in Melbourne. We highly recommend Serge from Prestige Wallpapering for his experience with difficult walls, and his care and attention to detail when applying our wallpaper to the wall.

Frame Melbourne is a project run by landscape Architecture students from RMIT’s School of Architecture and Design and Lendlease’s Melbourne Quarter development. The students designed an interactive artwork gallery on a 17 metre long hoarding as part of Melbourne Quarter’s site on the corner of Spencer and Flinders Streets.
The project captures the essence of life in Melbourne through photographs taken by the public looking through a window of a favourite space in the city. The images needed to include include the window frame and part of the room interior but no people. All the images needed to be hashtagged # FRAMEMELB then shared on Instagram and Facebook before being uploaded to the main website. A selection of these photographs were then printed and framed to form part of the exhibit. Tamara design Co was asked to supply a number of wallpaper designs to be used as the backdrop for the photographs the students re-coloured the designs to suit their creative vision.
You are invited to check out the Frame Melbourne exhibition which will run thoughout 2017 at the temporary Melbourne Quarter Hoarding Gallery on the corner of Spencer and Flinders streets in Melbourne. Head on over to their website for more information.
Nothing beats being able to show you the interiors that have been beautifully designed and styled using our wallpaper and textile designs. Thanks to Claire, interior designer extraordinaire from The Design Ward for the opportunity.
This particular bedroom refurbishment was part of an interior design project for one of Claire’s clients in W.A. The subtle use of colour and the minimalistic furnishings compliment the Blossom wallpaper perfectly. I especially love the glass bulb shape lamp that hangs down in the center of the room, and the pop of colour shown here with the use of the red cushion.
Our Blossom wallpaper is printed on an extra wide non-woven paper which allows for the scale of the design to be fully appreciated. It’s available in a range of colours to suit all tastes and decor, for both commercial and residential interiors.
If you would like to get the look and use our Blossom wallpaper for one of your projects please order samples here.
It’s always a satisfying feeling to add a new design to your collection of works. This creation was inspired by the Banksia Integrifolia, commonly known as coast banksia and is found growing along the east coast of Australia. I have added a branch of Grevillea and a few much loved Australian Birds, such as the Blue Wren, Regent Honeyeater and the Scarlet Honeyeater, these can be found scattered amongst the Banksia leaves. The design features details that are all hand-drawn in graphite pencil and then digitally coloured in Photoshop, with the spray painted background adding a contemporary touch. It’s available printed as a wallpaper, commercial upholstery fabric and on crisp Linen. You can order samples here.
Wallpaper and textile design always starts with an idea/inspiration or a clients idea. All my designs are hand drawn in graphite or pen. The design process begins with rough sketching and continues with a number of steps until the design is complete. Here is an outline of just some of the steps involved in creating the design. Research…draw…scan into computer…put into a repeat…tidy artwork in computer…decide on colours…print art work…expose screens or digital file ready..sample /strike – off..colour tweaking.
You can purchase samples of underwater wonderland from here.
Project 1: Private Commission – Brief: to design a jungle/tropical inspired print with Australian flora and fauna.
The client was happy for me to utilise some of the motifs I had already drawn from previous design collections. Using a combination of these drawings and newly illustrated jungle leaves, this design evolved. The finished print will be digitally printed on Belgian linen and used by the client to upholster pieces of bespoke furniture. Jungle Birds will eventually be added to the Funky Wombat Textiles linen collection and be available as a wallpaper and commercial fabric.
