This wallpaper is offered by Papier Français in collaboration with the BNF. Madame Colette illustrates the special relationship that the famous novelist had with nature, and particularly with gardens. It was often a way for her to escape, but also a source of literary inspiration.
"For the prestige of our garden, do we require but one tireless, hundred-year-old honeysuckle more than the wisteria in cascatelle and the Maiden's Blush rosegarden? Between the three of them climbing up, unsealing the gate, twisting a gutter and insinuating themselves under the slates of a roof, they taught me about profusion, permeating perfumes and their own excess sweetness."
