Paint and Paper Library's Latest Collaboration with Hugo Dalton : The Tresco Collection

Created on Posted by Fawn Interiors Studio

Following on from our recent Best of Decorex post, here is more detail on one of our favourites.

Paint and Paper Library have collaborated with the artist, Hugo Dalton, to create a beautiful range of wallpapers based on the natural assets of the island of Tresco, 30 miles off the Cornish coast (privately-owned by the Dorrien-Smith family): the Tresco Collection. Enjoying a sub-tropical environment Tresco, and in particular its Abbey Gardens, is host to a wide variety of flora which have all inspired these wallpapers. Hugo, best known for his wall paintings which have graced a variety of walls from art museums to fashion companies, spent months on the island, capturing everything in life drawings. The results, we're sure you'll agree, are just stunning. 



Aloe Walk

Featuring agapanthus and aloe, the full width of this mural spreads across 3 metres and the height of the agapanthus is 160cm. The result? A bold and dramatic wall statement.





Based on nautical charts, this graphic wallpaper is strikingly simple. It was inspired by by an antique chart found in the Dorrien-Smith family home on Tresco and has been faithfully recreated.




Abbey Gardens

Inspired by the Gardens themselves, this is a modern Toile de Jouy, painted in soft watercolour. It is highly-detailed but remarkably soothing at the same time.





Taken from the sub-tropical aeonium flower, this graphic wallpaper is pretty and delicate. It has a wonderful tactile quality which has been achieved using traditional surface printing.





Featuring the buds of the protea flower, this delicate repeat pattern is depicted at the flower bud's real scale and is inspired by Grecian wall paintings. 




Protea Trail

Big and blowsy, this celebratory pattern of protea flowers, birds and butterflies depicts the complex ecosystem of Tresco.




Lighthouse Palm

A very delicate palm tree motif based on the Butia Palm, is very open and gentle and would sit well within a variety of interiors.


There is also 'Archipelago', inspired by the seas and clouds, which we will update when the range is fully released in October.
