The charmingly designed Safari Dance features a trio of elephants dancing horizontally across the African plains. Intricately rendered, they are taken from a series of large decorated urns painted by Zinhle Nene which take pride of place in the Ardmore museum. Colourings are paired back in order to enhance the fine hand-drawn elements – charcoal and sand and stone provide a softly speckled backdrop to black and white, as well as soft mulberry, rust and cool chalky greys.
Narina shares its name with the beautiful Narina Trogan Bird, native to KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. Derived from the detailed patterning found on many Ardmore bowls and vases, the Cole & Son design studio have created a soft watercoloured geometric design using the stylised feathers of the Narina Bird to produce a subtle yet unusual semi-plain wallpaper.
Offered in colourings including soft neutrals alongside a vibrant burnt orange, leaf green and moody charcoal, this beautiful paper can be used to complement other designs within the collection and can also be hung upside down for an equally striking effect.
