03 Jan National Trust papers
Posted at 16:31h in Posts
Little Greene’s latest collaboration with the National Trust includes a collection of contemporary wallpapers based on original designs from the Trust’s portfolio of historic houses.
This flamboyant, vibrant peacock design is a beautiful example of late-19th century wallpaper printing. Found on a lobby wall at Erddig in Wales, it was hung in the 1870s, and has the painterly finish of a traditional Chinese silk. Showing peacocks perched on branches, accessorised by flowers, leaves and birds, the subject is typical of wallpapers and fabrics produced to satisfy the western elite’s interest in Chinese design. Coloured in eight vibrant ways including elegant pale and bolder dark grounds, and even a shimmering gold.
Pavona, shown here in Sylvie, from the National Trust collection at Little Greene costs £101 per roll.
- To take the stress out of putting together the decorating scheme, the clever people at Little Greene have matched the paper with a range of their paints, making it even easier for you to get the look you want.
