Divine Savages Wallpapers Officially Landed In America
Divine Savages specialises in creating exquisitely crafted wallpapers, fabrics and home decor for the brave and bold. Founded by husbands Jamie Watkins and Tom Kennedy in 2017, Tom began drafting wallpaper designs of his own when they bought a Victorian terrace apartment in the heart of London and couldn’t quite find the right wallpapers to match their own unique style on the market.
“Playful pattern with a story – it’s what we do best”
Tom recalls, “We wanted to respect the design styles of the arts & crafts movement of the Victorian era but found those traditional prints weren’t quite quirky enough. I’m an avid collector of curiosities and all things kitsch and wanted to inject some of this passion and personality into our home decor.”
Their first design, inspired by American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, was based on both Tom and Jamie’s love of cocktails. Deco Martini became the first wallpaper put into production, now a longstanding bestseller, and Divine Savages was born.
Determined to do interiors their way, Jamie, whilst working a full time job in TV, worked on the commercial side, building the backbones for what is now a thriving business. Tom left his job as a graphic designer to focus on creating an initial range of prints for wallpapers and fabrics, fine-tuning the look of Divine Savages that we now know to be flamboyant, eccentric and quirky.
“We wanted to nurture a passion for daring design. To help our customers be braver in their choice of pattern and bolder in their choice of colour. We want to celebrate both the divine and the savage in us all.”
Taking inspiration from history, culture, fashion and the natural world to create an eclectic mix of influences, they have, to date, created myriad designs whose personalities come across just as much in their names as they do visually. Take for instance Zsa Zsa, inspired by old 1920’s Hollywood technicolour movies, “Zsa Zsa is our party girl, she represents both the divine and savage sides of us. She’s glam, sophisticated and she loves a party” says Tom.
