Jangala Rose

Back in my former life of being an interior designer, I saw in a magazine, the most lovely wall covering and being said interior designer and lusting over silly things such as interior finishes, I immediately requested samples from the manufacturer, Osbourne and Little.  Which I'm sure from their lack of response AND samples (and probably hysterical laughter from my inquiry), that the little firm I worked for was not high-end enough to even be in the same room with their products.  At least that's what it felt like.

Anyway, years later...would you believe I'm still thinking about this wall covering?  It's called Jangala Rose, now discontinued; you can get 3-4 colorways still but very much muted from the original offering.  I just adore is Botanical, Asian, English...simple, vintage inspired, yet modern too.  Soooo, since it is highly unlikely I will actually get my hands on the real deal and now being a product designer, I want to do something inspired by this print to pay homage in away (and wouldn't it be nice if it was something more accessible than something like $72 a roll?).  I'll let you know how it the meantime, I hope you are inspired too!
