Bay Gallery Home is busy preparing to display our ‘My Country’ Aboriginal interiors collection in Australia at the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair where you’ll find on one of the outdoor stands.

The Australian launch of ‘My Country’ is the culmination of many hours of work, travel across the world and bumping down dusty roads to our Central Desert Communities. Sourcing the artwork and translating them into wallpapers, fabrics, tiles and rugs has been a absolute pleasure and privilege. As has working with British manufacturers on this pioneering collection.

Taking it home is incredibly exciting so we hope to see you at DAAF. If you can’t make it to Darwin and are interested in the ‘My Country’ collection please get in touch with alexandra@baygalleryhome.com

We wil be Sydney 5-8 August.

Bush Onion cotton velvet has arrived!

Bay Gallery Home is happy to share that our long awaited for Bush Onion cotton velvet has made it to our showroom.

The journey to get this velvet made encompasses ten’s of thousands of years, trips across the world, hours travelling to and from the artist Sarah Napurrurla and a lot of time finding designers with the skill to translate the Aboriginal paintings into repeat designs for velvets. Our designers have put their all into making our velvet range technically and aesthetically fabulous. It is another groundbreaking achievement for those collaborating with Bay Gallery Home helping make our vision reality.

Bush Onion cotton velvet is available by the metre. It is not online just yet so if you’d like to place an order or request a sample please contact alexandra@baygalleryhome.com

Our Aboriginal wallpaper artists at Number 46

Two of our incredibly talented artists who are painfully shy sit outside the art centre where they gather their painting materials before disappearing to paint. On their return they saunter in, often barefoot in clothes, they choose for colour and pattern, clutching exquisite completed works depicting the bush tucker and medicine of their Country. When we visit they are intrigued as to which work we choose to sell or translate into wallpapers. The painting on the art centre wall is inspiring us to upscale the next wallpapers in the collection!

It is a huge privilege to work with these women who empower us through their tenacity, fortitude and innate talent. Funds from each wallpaper goes to them and other artists in the Community providing painting materials, healthcare, transport and schooling in both Aboriginal and Western cultures helping to bridge the gap.

The wallpapers are available from our Cotswolds gallery or online at www.baygalleryhome.com

Fabulous Aboriginal fabrics coming to Bay Gallery Home soon

Bay Gallery Home is working hard on creating 'Songlines' our first collection of fabrics based on paintings by artists we proudly represent.  We have developed the world's first Aboriginal velvets available in three colours with slightly differing depictions of the Goanna Dreaming (Warnu Jukurrpa) - essentially a love story set in the Central Desert of Australia.  In keeping with our 'design with origin' ethos we have been faithful to the original artwork in the design work thereby protecting the Dreamtime story and the intent of the artist.  Keep an eye on the website over the next month or so as beautiful tableware, blinds and cushions will be amongst our first offerings.
