Two years ago Alexandra, Bay Gallery Home owner travelled to the central desert community Daisy Kemarre hails from. Alexandra on a mission to find a painting for interior designer Tom Carey who graduated as 2014 Student of the Year from the KLC School of Design.
Tom works in Arts and Crafts, Gothic, Aesthetic and High Victorian styles. On one of his projects he was using William Morris wallpapers but as the ‘My Country’ Lilly Green invoked William Morris comparisons Alexandra thought she could source a painting he could use in his room schemes. So Daisy’s painting became a wallpaper in turn becoming a fabric.
Daisy Brown fabric can be ordered as a linen or half panama. The half panama retains the vivacity of the original work. If you want to match the wallpaper it’s best use the half panama but if you’re after a more rustic feel it works beautifully on the linen.
All ‘My Country’ fabrics will be available by the metre on our shop shortly. In the meantime you can place orders with email@example.com or call 07776 157 066.

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

An excerpt is available online with the full article published in the new issue now available at all good outlets including Harvey Nichols, Holland Park News, Princess News and Wardour News. The article serves as an introduction to Aboriginal art giving the reader a brief history of Aboriginal art and a broad insight into the different styles and areas the art hails from.

Henry with his Easter eggs - word spread fast as we were soon surrounded by children at the art centre. He'll be among future generations of Aboriginal artists.
It's the time of year we head back to Australia either on sourcing trips or to connect with others in the Aboriginal art and design sectors. The bulk of our time will be spent in Sydney and Brisbane where we'll meet with interior designers and visit Aboriginal art exhibitions including Weave at the Australian Museum, Sydney.
If you'd like to meet to discuss our My Country interiors collection please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bay Gallery Home wishes you all a Happy Easter. We'd also ask you to please vote for us in the Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards in the following categories we've been shortlisted for: Independent Shop of the Year, Home & Interiors Business of the Year and Shopping Destination of the Year @soglos.com/awards/vote

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.

We're off to Surface Design at the Business Design Centre in Islington today. We have three new wallpapers under development so will be meeting with various collaborators at the show to discuss these and other exciting plans we have. It's always good to see developments in the surfacing world and where our new products might find their place market. Wish list is to work with Kit Kemp of Firmdale Hotels who, among others has worked with A Rum Fellow who we admire greatly.
Below you can see a sneak preview of our 'My Country - Yellow' available soon.
Joycie Pitjara Morton painting, selected on a trip to Australia a year ago, translated into a stunning wallpaper. Joycie will receive money for the sale of each roll her designs appear on.

The winter nights have drawn in so why not look at our beautiful evening skies? Perhaps you'll see a cigar-shaped alien space ship (or meteor?) gliding through it. If you're sky is light polluted take inspiration from Australia's milky way as depicted on these teapots, mugs, sugar pots, cup and saucers, milk jugs and bowls. Alma's paintings were a sell out at her only solo UK exhibition held at Bay Gallery Home but her chinaware continues to be one of our most popular designs. Available online www.baygalleryhome.com or in the gallery.

Bay Gallery Home's award winning wallpaper is now on Houzz the home of interior design, decorating, renovating and building inspiration. Houzz discovered our wallpapers at Surface Design in February and we're delighted their intrigue lead to asking us to being on their platform giving our wallpapers the chance of being discovered on both sides of the pond.
We have taken original artworks and translated them in coated non-woven wallpapers (made in the UK) producing an additional income stream for our artists and their art centres.
