Cole & Son Afrika Kingdom Wallpaper, the circle of life forms a regal tableau in this celebration of the Animal Kingdom set in the lush greenery of Afrika – the Afrikaans spelling. This tiered design has an elegant formality, with graceful curves in the flora and fauna, the irrepressible spirit of Jabula flourishing. A totemic Giant Eagle Owl with outstretched wings oversees the impressive scene, where palm trees proudly fan out their sculptural leaves, heavy with ripening fruit. Animals appear in mirrored pairs, from balletic giraffes to a dazzle of frolicking zebra alongside some of southern Africa’s most endangered animals like the fiery-toned Painted Dog and stately Roan Antelope. Colour and pattern are layered in vibrant flourishes, from the brilliance of a rhino’s horn to the highly decorative flourishes across a hippo’s hide. Three ground colours deliver dramatically different results: the night sky, high noon or a subtle metallic bronze that evokes the golden hour on the savanna – time for a traditional sundowner.

Cole & Son Bush Baby Wallpaper, adorable bush babies which are a firm favourite throughout the Ardmore studio’s work. Within Cole & Son’s Bush Baby wallcovering they nestle in a canopy of leaves beside an African Coral, or ‘Lucky Bean’, tree whose plump pods are bursting to reveal ripe seeds. With their alert ears listening for the flutter of insect wings, the bush babies are poised to leap upon a tasty snack, with rose-tipped fingers and a sliver of pink tongue. Bush Baby’s colourways feature rainforest greens with pops of scarlet and orange, rich wine tones, and peaceful aquamarine. With inky ground hues akin to the nocturnal nature of these playful creatures.

Cole & Son Hoopoe Leaves Wallpaper, Leaves, fronds and flowers form a lush and peaceful labyrinth within Hoopoe Leaves canopy; a closer glance revealing nature’s bustling wonder. What appear to be blossoms are, in fact, the feathery crowns of exotic Hoopoe birds hiding in the foliage alongside wildly embellished beetles and a wide-eyed praying mantis. Every leaf, feather and insect wing is lovingly adorned with intricate patterns evoking Zulu beadwork. Created in a rich range of colours including sharp spring greens and lush olive tones, balanced with warm pinks, corals, sunny yellows and hints of soft blue, with the ground hues evoking an inky night sky or a dusty savanna afternoon.

Cole & Son Kalahari Wallpaper, the sophisticated pattern of Kalahari imbues even the smallest space with a sense of intrigue. Textures in spiced browns, cool neutrals and verdant shades of fern and crocodile nestle on a mysterious ebony ground. Inspired by an Ardmore tortoise print that resembles a stylised star, the Cole & Son artists created a geometric burst repeat. Kalahari’s visual composition is almost like a musical score, an orderly rhythm punctuated by the resonant booms of larger shapes and a cadence of smaller silhouettes. Playing with perspective and focus, the design could be the labyrinthine markings on one tortoise’s shell – or dozens of tortoises clustered at the edge of a watering hole. The etching of Kalahari’s print creates a watercolour effect, the organic shapes and line weights adding warmth and vitality, followed by a stencil-like outline for a contemporary crispness.
