Folly in Ultraviolet
As the name would suggest this bold green-blue scheme is the definitive showstopper wallcovering. The vivid colours are highlighted by bronze metallic detailing.
Our Folly design layout is at once bold, classical and whimsical. The scene moves between rocks, water and lush foliage, with beautiful birds throughout. With quite a dense layout and a deep, heavy ground comprising both land and water, the feeling is that of being immersed in a botanical paradise.
This richness of detail means there’s always something new to notice, whether it’s the way the birds interact with one another or the textural contrast between the many types of plant. For this reason, Folly is particularly successful in rooms where there is lots of open space, allowing you to admire the full scenic.

Each painted panel begins its life as a length of raw silk which we size with a natural adhesive so that it receives paint without bleeding. We often brush the silk with iridescent pearl washes to add further lustre before backing with traditional rice paper. This forms the extraordinary canvas on which our artists work their magic.
Our artists are masters of traditional Chinese painting and work in teams to meticulously plan out each room before slowly building up the many layers of detail and colour. To achieve intensity and shade, the artist will blend hues, often using two brushes simultaneously.
