As a novice lino-cutter, i.e. one done at the age of seven and another done last week, I am not yet aspiring to wallpaper but that doesn't stop me dreaming and drooling over everyone else's, so I was delighted to read this email from St Jude's. If any of you felt moved to vote, please do...
Having won the Best British Pattern Design with Emily Sutton's Curiosity Shop in last year's awards, St Jude's are delighted that Mark Hearld's Harvest Hare wallpaper has been nominated for this year's Elle Decoration British Design Awards.
Based on an original linocut print by Mark, Harvest Hare is a single colour wallpaper, printed in the UK using water-based inks and paper from sustained forests. Available in 3 colourways: blue slate, corn and chalk white.
The awards take on a slightly different format this year with no specific categories - the six nominees with the most votes will be announced as winners at the end of October.
These awards do make a difference to St Jude's - if you have a minute or two spare, please do vote for them online.
And apropos of no connection whatsoever...is anyone else watching and coming over all emotional at the Paralympics??
