This new collection from Divine Savages promises to be a wild reworking of the traditional, inspired by the Natural History Museum’s vast array of specimens, original illustrations and paintings that span centuries of natural history exploration.
The five designs: Botanize, Arboreta, Extinctopia, Hierarchy and Forbidden Bloom are inspired by different natural elements from the Museum’s world-leading collections and also by the building itself.

Blending the botanical and reptile collections from The Natural History Museum, this wallcovering features beautifully illustrated floral blooms mysteriously intertwined with sweeping serpents for a wild and untamed interior. Look closer, can you spot the serpent’s head?
Taking inspiration from Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkin’s elaborate Victorian theme park at Crystal Palace, South-East London. Featuring a plethora of prehistoric beasts as they skulk in the bushes and frolic in the water, you’ll also notice the Victorians of the time as they wander through their Jurassic fantasy world. This detail-rich, large-scale wallpaper will bring an artful ambience to any interior.
Inspired by illustrations from London’s Natural History Museum dating back to 1786, Arboreta showcases diverse botanical specimens like Oak, Palm, Weeping Willow and Cedar. Highlighting the delicate balance of eco systems around the world, our beautiful forest-inspired wallpaper will bring nature into your home.
Hierarchy celebrates the intricately carved stonework that adorns the exterior of London’s Natural History Museum to create a striking wallcovering full of architectural splendour as well as the incredible natural world. The gargoyles featured here are not grotesque or of mythological form, but rather intricately carved animals, with a proud lion taking centre stage.
Inspired by the ‘Cathedral to Nature’ at London’s Natural History Museum – the iconic great hall. Most visitors miss the spectacular vaulted ceiling, adorned with 162 illustrated panels showing plants from across the world discovered during the epic adventures undertaken by the great explorers. Our Botanize wallpaper celebrates these illustrations that were a tribute both to the immense diversity of life on Earth, and those working to protect it.
Staying true to the original, our ‘Heritage’ version of Botanize adds an intricate border detail inspired by the painted wooden tiles for a more traditional finish. Printed on a subtly textured base, ‘Heritage’ has a glorious depth that alludes to the history behind this design.

For those who dare to stand out, Botanize Heritage is also available as a luxury bespoke mural. Created on a metallic grasscloth base, this stunning wallpaper delivers maximum impact in any space, the delicate woven texture alluding to the grand tapestries of the past.
'Working with London’s iconic Natural History Museum for this new collection has been an incredible journey through time, and a personal dream come true. Indulging our passion for nature, and our younger selves’ obsession with Indiana Jones, we’ve been raiding the vast archives and vaults for inspiration on five new designs to create a stunning new collection that we hope helps to inspire a love for the natural world,' explain Jamie Watkins and Tom Kennedy, founders of Divine Savages.
