The original, much-admired version of this wallpaper can be seen in the Chinese bedroom at Belton House in Lincolnshire. Whilst the paper – a garden party scene, depicted in a combination of printed and hand-painted elements – dates from 1785, it is known to have been hung over 50 years later, in 1840. The original layout, including human figures, exotic birds, awkward scale, quirky perspective and odd details, has been simplified to give space to the spreading bamboo and charming interaction of birds, butterflies and flowers. Available in three colourways, the horizontal pattern repeats over two standard rolls, making the final panel just over three metres in width. This design comprises 6 panels covering 3.12m in total width and is provided on two rolls. Each roll contains 3 panels, covering a width of 1.56m. It is possible to purchase one roll containing just 3 panels (a,b & c or d,e & f) which make up half of the complete mural. To attain the complete pattern both the a,b,c roll and d,e,f roll should be purchased.
Repeat:3.25m x 3.12m across (10’ 8ins x 123ins)
Roll Length:10.05m (11 yds)
