Best Buds, Platinum

Regular price$ 235.00


Best Buds is a commemorative Jubilee wallpaper, designed by Kate Hawkins. The anthropomorphic buds were inspired by a William Kilburn sketch from 1800. They can be read as flowers, crowns, or even winking eyes that warmly watch over us, while the repetition in the design nods to a lifetime of duty and best behavior. A little like wallpaper, Queen Elizabeth II is the quiet backdrop to our lives; that consistent, comforting presence. She is there. She has always been there.
