Biba Diva

Biba founder Barbara Hulanicki has designed her own wallpaper for Graham & Brown. I particularly love the 'diva oyster' pattern and colour (below) for a muted and tasteful nod to the 60s.

The current obsession with wallpaper does wonders for companies like Graham & Brown, who have joined forces with some impressive names to design gorgeous limited edition rolls, like this gorgeous print from the fabulous Basso & Brooke:
