Ellie Cashman


Dark Floral Wallpaper

An original floral painting inspired by the still life paintings of the Dutch Golden Age, printed on high-quality 165 gr/m2 non-woven fleece wallpaper with a matte finish. What’s so unique about this wallpaper is that it is at once classic/romantic and distinctly modern. Truly and eye-catcher, with its large scale and dark background. Use it on a stunning accent wall or in an unexpected space like an old factory, a loft, etc. The possibilities are endless.

Standard roll (1.95 m w x 3 m h) – €229 excl. tax and shipping
