Bumble Bee

A playful pairing of bumble bees and polka dots makes this paper a real joy in any room of the home. Based on a pattern originally found on silks in Joséphine Bonaparte’s bedroom, its small scale, well spaced pattern gives it a classic feel.

Full roll width is 53cm/21", roll length is 10m and pattern repeat is 16cm/6 1/4". Available in 30 colourways.

Our traditional methods of crafting wallpaper can result in subtle but noticeable differences between batches of the same design. For the most consistent results, it’s best to order all the rolls you’ll need for your project in one go.

Ground and print colours are intended as guidance only, not as an exact match for colours in our palette.

Bumble Bee is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 20.

The process for creating our handcrafted wallpaper starts with rolls of high-quality, vinyl-free paper sourced from sustainably managed forests, continues with our own paint being applied with traditional methods, and ends with beautiful patterns and texture transforming your home.


Wallpapers are usually made with ink, but not ours – we use our own richly pigmented paint, creating an effortless connection between paint and paper. The expert craftsmen at our Dorset factory use artisanal methods to print each roll, and finish with a fine coat of specially formulated glaze to ensure a durable, wipeable surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I ordered 6 wallpaper samples and fell in love with all of them. Especially bumble bee and Brockhampton Star. I couldn’t decide, so took the plunge and booked a colour consultation. The best £130 I have ever spent!! Emily really listened to what I wanted and advised of colours I hadn’t thought of. I wanted colour, but wasn’t too sure how to put together. The whole experience was brilliant. Can’t wait to start decorating now :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stands the Test of Time! We have had this wallpaper in our downstairs cloakroom for a number of years and it still looks as good as ever. Everyone who sees it remarks on how lovely it is, and is taken with the little bees. We picked the gold bees to match our taps, etc.
