Charlotte's Garden is a design commissioned by the Brontë Parsonage Museum to celebrate the bicentenary of Charlotte Brontë's birthday. It is inspired by the flowers that bloom in the Parsonage Garden around the time of Charlotte's birthday in April and it features ferns, alliums, hellebores, forget-me-nots, tulips and fritillaries.
It is shown here in 'mist' which is a lovely soft grey with warm tones. The colour changes in different lights and on different screens so be sure you have seen it in real life by ordering a sample first (just select 'sample only' from the drop down menu below).

How do I know how much wallpaper I need?
If you email us with the height and width of your wall we can calulate how much paper you will need but if you want to work it out for yourself this is how you do it: First work out the number of drops you will need (width of your wall divided by the width of the wallpaper). You may have to round the number up. You then multiply this number of drops by the height of the wall and you get the metres needed for your wall excluding the wallpaper pattern repeat. Multiply your wallpaper pattern repeat by the number of drops needed minus 1 (this is because the first drop doesn't need to be included). Add this figure to the metres needed without pattern repeat and this gives you the final amount of metres for covering your wall. Divide this by the number of metres on a roll to give you the final number of rolls needed.
Wall width is 348cm, wall height is 266cm
Wallpaper roll is 52cm wide with a 76.2cm pattern repeat and the roll is 10m long.
348/52 = 6.69 (rounded up to 7 = 7 drops)
7 drops x 266cm wall height = 1,862cm
76.2cm pattern repeat x 6 (7 drops - 1) = 457.2
457cm + 1,862cm = 2,319.20cm = 23.19 metres
23.19 metres divided by 10 metres on a roll = 2.31 rolls
Therefore you will need 3 rolls of wallpaper
