'...a fluid constellation of gently decaying stars’
Childhood friends Vanessa Barneby and Alice Gates established Barneby Gates in 2009. Together they create beautiful wallpapers and fabrics with a quintessentially English feel. Using bold prints, colours and subtle metallic finishes they are inspired by everything around them from English robins and wildflower meadows to bugs, bees and butterflies. Their wallpapers and fabrics are printed in the UK at one of the few remaining traditional print works in the Midlands. This is the All Star wallpaper, £81.00 per 10m roll shown here in Gunmetal. barnebygates.com
