For a long time the Australian retail market has striven for success utilising a small mix of largely German and US manufacturers. It is time for change. We have recently undertaken a search for a range of new manufacturing partnerships the key criteria for selection were: innovation in design, outstanding value, commitment to excellence, and high quality materials. Vatos is the first new manufacturing partnership we have undertaken in a long time and will be one of a number launched this year.

The room is pitch black, only the echo of a dripping tap splits the silence. The walls are bare and cracked, bristling with a furry green mildew. Style and elegance have vanished from this place, only a motley collection of mismatched tones has survived. But there is hope in the darkness. Somewhere out there a superhero is circling, waiting to descend into renovating hell and unleash a special kind of magic that will wash all your troubles away. Is there such a force in today’s world? A company committed to finding innovative solutions for every challenge, a company willing to go the extra distance to ensure complete customer satisfaction? Yes, its name is Hume Internationale.

Hume Internationale has been in the wallcovering business since 1971. Back then, things were very different. Evonne Goolagong and John Newcombe ruled Wimbledon. Billy McMahon took control of the country, whilst Ian Chappell took control of the baggy greens. The TV bristled with new talent as we watched Homicide, Get Smart, Hogan’s Heroes, Dad’s Army, The Partridge Family, Pick A Box and Young Talent Time. Eagle Rock was number one for 10 weeks, Olivia Newton John released her first album and John Farnham was a rising star. Greenpeace and Federal Express opened their doors and the world’s first microprocessor was launched. Movie goers flocked to see Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Fiddler On The Roof, A Clockwork Orange and Dirty Harry. The average wage was $6,497 and a bottle of Grange Hermitage cost around $7. Amidst all this commotion, Hume Internationale was born and continues to evolve today.

When NASA wanted to recruit a fresh squadron of astronauts a few years ago, they made sure all the applicants were aware of the expectations. Their job ad featured the following line: “The position requires extensive travel. Possible destinations may include - but are not limited to - Texas, Florida, California, Russia, Kazakhstan, the International Space Station and the moon.” At Hume Internationale, all of our employees have thankfully remained on earth - and they know we expect the very best. That’s why we work with Terry Clark, our long-serving industry guru in the sunshine state.

Amazingly, it’s a sales manager. But not any sales manager. Peter Brotherton is the Sales Manager at Hume Internationale. We prefer to call him seasoned, rather than ancient. That’s a good thing too, because what he doesn’t know about wallpaper hasn’t been written yet. Peter has seen it all and remains joyously enthusiastic about the design possibilities that today’s wallpaper can bring to your next project. His expertise and passion are part of the extra service you get when dealing with Hume Internationale. We’re proud to have him, and he’s proud to be part of our great company.

Hume Internationale is excited, so excited that we’ve ditched the slab of XXXX Gold from the company fridge. We’re making way for the good stuff… a case or two of Louis Roederer Cristal or perhaps a rare half-dozen bottles of Krug Clos Du Mesnil. Why are we raising the bar in our recreation room? Hume’s new season collections have arrived and they are truly stunning. So grab a glass of your favourite tipple (be it Tattinger or Stone’s Green Ginger Wine), then settle back and check out the list of great new arrivals from Marburg, Rasch-Textil, Belacol and Brewster.

Climbing Mount Everest, winning the America’s Cup, mapping the human genome, building the International Space Station, squeezing out the very last bit of toothpaste without splitting the tube. These amazing feats all come with their own set of daunting challenges, but each hurdle must be overcome to achieve victory. Hume Internationale has ridden the peaks and troughs of the wallpapering industry for years, but has emerged with a sterling reputation and a vast reserve of expertise. Just ask the master wallhangers at Decoroll, who know a winning combination when they see it.
