Hip Products: Bholu wallpaper

Welcome news for lovers of good Australian design with a conscience - uber-cool lifestyle brand Bholu has teamed up with Porter's Paints to release a divine range of wallpaper for littlies and grown-ups under the “ Designers for Porter’s Paints” series.

Designed to mix and match with the label's homewares and children's range, the designs feature the signature bholu ‘Nimboo’ swirl and characters such as ‘Mavis the Monkey’, ‘Frederick the Elephant’ and ‘Marjorie the Duck’.

For those not in the know, Bholu is a fair trade company based in Australia that works with communities in India to produce gorgeous homewares. Part proceeds go back to these communities as well as funding for education facilities and other programs for underprivileged children.

Check out more images of the new collection on the Bholu Facebook page. Bholu wallpaper will be available at Porter's stockists from February 17th, 2010 (call your local stockist for more information) around the world.

  1. I'm just loving that second image... fab design and so my style! Thanks for sharing it.

  2. These are fantastic - I'm going to do a post too :) Thanks!

  3. Hi Deb - of course! Bholu I'm sure will be thrilled.
    Hi Cath, Danielle and Melissa - glad you like it; so great to see new Aussie-made wallpaper designs.

  4. Oh!! I love the elephants and monkeys. Those are the two animals I always give my nephews.

  5. I loved your post about Bholu wallpapers - Jodie Freid is such an inspiration! I'm not 100% sure if it is blog-etiquette but I copied the whole thing to my blog and plugged Bondville too. Thanks for the post.

  6. Hi Alina, Bholu do a great job on their elephants and monkeys. I'm partial to their "critter" design - a wonky little bird.

    Hi Kathryn, thank you so much for letting me know about your post. Much appreciated, and thank you for acknowledging the source. Generally the most appreciated styles of accreditation in blogland that I've come across are either:
    1. crediting the source and adding new info about the product to create a different article; or
    2. crediting the source and reusing one or two sentences, with a link back to the original source to read more.
    I hope that helps! Best wishes.


Your comments make my day :)
