Jane Gordon Clark founded the specialist wallpaper company Ornamenta in 1987. She creates all the original wallpaper designs for the company, which are sold to an international clientele of designers, interior decorators, specifiers and architects.
Some of the wallpapers currently available are shown here:
In 1990 Jane launched her first collection of specialist wallpapers, many developing the trompe l’oeil theme. Among them were a best-selling design of Clouds, wafting across a sunny sky. Two classics were the Ashlar Block and the Wood Grain wallpapers and the award winning Natural Petal paper taken from real flowers.
HOTHOUSE FLOWERS SITE SPECIFIC WALLPAPER
In the year 2000, Jane launched an innovation in wallpaper design with her Site Specific digital wallpaper, with designs created to fill an entire wall with a single image. It caused a stir in interior design circles, and was commissioned widely both by individuals, and for public spaces in the UK, Europe, the USA and the Far East.
The success of the Hot house Flowers collection led to numerous requests for unique individual site specific installations, some of which are here:
Spatial Graphics Collection
Spatial Graphics appear to alter the shape of the wall and introduce an exciting new dynamic to the interior space.
When Ornamenta was founded by Jane her original idea was the creation of trompe l'oeil wallpaper decorations which gave the illusion of decorative plaster mouldings, or twisted swags of rope or fabric. The idea was new to the design world and achieved instant success worldwide.
Interior Design Projects
Jane’s interior design work covers many fields from public buildings to domestic interiors for private clients. She can work in a traditional style sympathetic to listed buildings and is equally confident with contemporary interiors.
This is the restoration of the Duke’s Hall at the Royal Academy of Music. The brief covered the decoration, curtains, seating, lighting, including the specially designed chandeliers, and the re-hang of the paintings.
