The Dalston Rose range features English-style navy blue roses printed across a nude-coloured background that fades to black to give a room the appearance of a vintage photograph.
Photography is by Sean Myers apart from where otherwise stated.
Here is some further explanation from House of Hackney:
House of Hackney
Launched in London in April 2011 House of Hackney is the new luxury wallpaper, bed linen and home furnishings label which reworks the concept of traditional British home wares for a new generation.
Described as a ’’Colefax and Fowler on acid’’ House of Hackney takes classic British shapes in bed linen, wallpaper, lamps, cushions, fine bone china and furniture and subverts them with beauty and humour.
House of Hackney is about creating product that will stand the test of time working with and supporting the best traditional British manufacturers in their fields.
Dalston Rose features a wedgewood style navy blue English rose against an antiqued nude background with a gradient (ombre) effect across the base of the wall. Traditionally gravure printed on FSC paper made from sustainable forests.
To achieve the same ombre effect as photography there are 2 parts to the wallpaper.
