In January 2019 Little Greene will be launching their 13th wallpaper collection, London Wallpapers V – a compendium of heritage designs to complement their existing wallpaper collections.

Wilton – Pad

 

Spanning 250 years of interior decoration (from 1690 to the mid 20th century), ‘London Wallpapers V’ is a compendium of authentic heritage designs, each one sensitively remodelled and expertly coloured for the 21st century home.

With one exception, the 11 designs in the collection are based on fragments stored in English Heritage’s wallpaper archive at Wrest Park in Bedfordshire, which were removed and preserved during the conservation of 18th and 19th century London houses.

The exception is a first for Little Greene and English Heritage – the original design still hangs on the walls at Brodsworth Hall, an elegant and faithfully conserved Victorian country house in South Yorkshire.

The oldest source material for London Wallpapers V actually pre-dates wallpaper: a decorative piece of leather from 1690 that would have been displayed as a hanging mural rather than glued to a wall. Other remnants include hand-blocked damasks, delicate neoclassical fragments, hand-stencilled patterns and authentic designs from the Georgian and Arts & Crafts periods.
London Wallpapers V introduces four previously unseen designs and amalgamates seven popular patterns from London Wallpapers II and III, which have been updated with the addition of 15 fresh colourways.

 

NEW DESIGNS

 

Brodsworth – Empress

 

Brodsworth c.1863 – 3 colourways

A lively and engaging design featuring striking birds and delicate floral motifs. Slightly raised and incorporating rich gilding detail, the pattern was originally designed to be an imitation of stamped leather. Based on early-18th century French textiles and furnishings, encompassing panels, scrolls and cross hatching, this wallpaper was found at Brodsworth Hall in South Yorkshire, an elegant, Victorian home belonging to the Thellusson family. Used in both the library and the morning room in reverse colourways, this paper was certainly a family favourite and can still be seen in situ today.

 

 

Brook Street – Etruscan

 

 

Brook Street c.1895 – 5 colourways

In entirely different eras, two neighbouring houses in Mayfair’s fashionable Brook Street were homes to the baroque composer George Frideric Handel and rock musician Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix spent some of his short-lived musical career in a flat at No. 23, the same property from which this pattern hails. The woven cane-like design is typical of the late 19th century: an all-over pattern, which sits on a lightly brushed ground and incorporates a soft texture within its motif.

 

 

Carlton House Terrace – Blue Plume

 

Carlton House Terrace c.1885 – 5 colourways

A flamboyant peacock feather design, found in the attics of 18 Carlton House Terrace, a beautiful stucco-faced London town house overlooking The Mall. Originally machine-printed in green on a yellow background, the contemporary surface-printed technique used to recreate it accurately reflects the original, whilst a judicious splash of colour in the feather provides something on which to anchor a contemporary scheme.

 

St James’s Park – Suede Fade

 

St James’s Park c.1940 – 4 colourways

This large damask pattern was found in Marlborough House, next to St James’s Park, a grand abode designed by Christopher Wren and home to the Duchess of Marlborough, friend and confidante of Queen Anne. Originally a dark blue flock on a pale blue ground, the paper is believed to be comparatively recent, though the origins of the general design are Victorian (as a
wallpaper) and older still (as a silk fabric). The twist in this interpretation is the light-to-dark ombré effect, which puts bolder colour at the base of the wall and lighter above, with the effect of making a space feel taller and lighter than it would with a conventional damask design. It is a panel design, with three panels making up one full repeat.

 

EXISTING DESIGNS

 

Bedford Square – Acorn

 

Bedford Square c.1900 – LWII 3 existing and 2 new colourways

One of the most impressive squares in London, Bedford Square was originally laid out in 1775–6 and, until World War II, the majority of its houses were inhabited by lawyers, architects, publishers and other professionals. The original of this paper was saved from a property in the square, and is of a design typical of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. New colourways include an uplifting green option that incorporates Acorn, Acorn Mid and Puck. The fresh background combined with the dark green fine line of Puck gives the design a more contemporary look and feel. There is also a pink option with a China Clay background and
soft, feminine Hellebore and Blush highlights.

 

Lansdowne Walk – Nordic

 

Lansdowne Walk c.1910 – LWII 1 existing and 4 new colourways

An Arts & Crafts motif in the manner of Voysey, a leading light of the movement who was perhaps more famous as an architect than as a wallpaper designer. Although this colourful wallpaper was removed from a 19th century house in Kensington, its actual design dates it to the early 20th century.

 

 

Lauderdale – Stone

 

Lauderdale c.1820 – LWII 2 existing and 1 new colourway

This paper, a variation on a striped theme, dates from around 1820, although the original fragment was discovered in a 16th century property, Lauderdale House on Highgate Hill, overlooking Hampstead Heath. The design results from stencilling as opposed to block printing: a plain green paper would have been put up on a hessian scrim stretched over the wall and then stencilled in situ.

 

 

Lower George St – Carousel

 

Lower George St c.1810 – LWII 3 existing and 2 new colourways

An abstract paper, which, despite its contemporary appearance, probably dates from the early 1800s when such designs were hugely popular. The original colourway, featuring orangey stars on a pinky-yellow ground, was discovered on an upper floor of a commercial building that had been refaced in the early 19th century but was most probably a much older building.

 

Marlborough – Glacé

 

Marlborough c.1915 – LWII 4 existing and 2 new colourways

A large-scale pattern, reminiscent of an early-20th century interpretation of one of Robert Adam’s designs. This paper was discovered just after the death of Queen Mary, who lived in Marlborough House until 1953, after which the house became the headquarters of the Commonwealth Secretariat.

 

New Bond Street – Hide

 

New Bond Street c.1690 – LWIII 4 existing colourways

Based on one of the oldest surviving documents in English Heritage’s wallpaper archive, this fragment from an embossed leather wall hanging actually predates wallpaper. Panels of embossed and painted leather, usually with a floral pattern, were popular though expensive modes of decoration in the late 16th and 17th centuries. These panels were sewn together to create large-scale decorative hangings, in much the same way that drops of wallpaper are hung side-by-side to create a more impressive statement.

 

 

Wilton – Pad

 

Wilton c.1760 – LWIII 3 existing and 4 new colourways
A classic damask design that is very typical of the popular large-scale pomegranate patterns of the mid 18th century, this would originally have been a flock wallpaper and hung in a grand English home. Flock papers were an English speciality, being in effect imitations of expensive textiles, which were nonetheless costly to produce. As a result, they came to represent a confident statement of luxury and social status.

Keep an eye out on our website, as it will be live in the coming weeks!


Todays the day, 20th of September, Farrow & Ball have officially announced 9 new colourways to their collection. Featuring calm light shades to deep adventures colours, a perfect set of new colours that will add new colour and life to your homes and projects.

From farrow and ball themselves “the creation of new colours is an incredibly exciting time at Farrow & Ball. It’s not something we do often, making it feel all the more special” and we couldn’t agree more! its always exciting to see what new colours are coming out, how each colour represents a story and seeing if we can use the colour in our everyday lives.

An extraordinary amount of time and thought goes into each new hue, from refining its exact shade to dreaming up the perfect name and telling the story behind the rich pigments, not only does it take a lot of time to decide which new colours to bring out, but also which ones to unfortunately archive, curating that perfect palette of colours.

Let’s take a look at them, shall we?

School House White no.291

A soft off-white

This is the lightest colour in the group including Shadow White, Shaded White and Drop Cloth – each created to look like white when used in deep shade. Pared back, timeless and familiar without the cool undertones of our more contemporary neutral groups, this soft off white is reminiscent of the colour used in old school houses.

Treron no.292

A dark grey green.

This enduring colour is a dark green version of Farrow & Ball classic Pigeon, hence being named after the green variety of the same species. Although traditional in feel, Treron is perfect for modern homes where lots of natural materials are used or as an accent for both French Gray and our Traditional Neutrals.

-Jitney no.293 

A relaxed brown based neutral.

This earthy colour sites somewhere between the more traditional Oxford stone and greyer Elephants Breath. Though muted, it is incredibly uplifting and reminds us of lazy days by the sea – hence sharing its name with the bus that whisks New Yorkers out of the hot city to similary coloured sandy beaches of The Hamptons.

-Paean Black no.294

A chic red based black.

This Georgian inspired red based black creates an intimate feel in super contemporary or bohemian homes, while adding a distinguished look to traditional exteriors. The perfect accent for all our reds and completing our range of blacks, paen black conjurs up the shade of old leather hymnals and so is named after a song of praise. A lovely deep black colour that adds a touch of shade to any rooms.

-Sulking Room Pink No.295

A romantic and muted rose.

Not to be seen as overtly pink, but rather a muted rose with enormous warmth, its powdery feel makes it incredibly soft and easy to use with complementary tones. Sulking Room Pink is evocative of the colours so often used in boudoirs, a room named after the French ‘boulder’ – to sulk.

-Rangwali no.296

An exotic and adventurous pink.

This colour is exotic, happy and vital. The most adventurous of our pinks, Rangwali is incredibly friendly and takes its name from the powder which is thrown so enthusiastically during the Holi festival of colours in India. Though bright, it has an absorbing depth of colour which is achieved by adding a small dose of black pigment.

-Preference Red no.297

A deep, rich red.

The deepest and richest of our reds, this baroque colour is named in honour of our original trade name, preference paints. It can be used with any of the red based neutrals but is particularly striking when seen in combination with Paean Black and Sulking Room Pink.

The preferred red of modern homes.

Farrow & Balls design tip: some strong shades such as preference red transform the most functional areas of our homes into talking points, perhaps within a doorway or on the steps and spindles of a staircase.

 

-Bancha No.298

A protective olive green.

This mid-century modern green is a darker version of the much-loved archive colour, Olive. Perfect for those who want to embrace stronger colour in the home, its sober tone creates rooms that feel calm and serene – especially when combined with soft pinks and browns. Named after Japanese tea leaves, Bancha, like a cup of green tea, provides a feeling of security.

De Nimes no.299

A down to earth and grounding blue.

This quietly elegant blue feels wonderful down to earth, so could be used on anything from a kitchen island to the airy drawing room. The exact shade is rooted in a regency palette but is inspired by the cloth of everyday workwear made in the French city Nimes.

Like denim, its blue hue is ultimately fashionable and yet always feels grounded.

1.Osborne & little – Derwent (67.50 A Roll)

This is a wonderful wallpaper by Osborne & little, it features koi carp on a repeating pattern across the wallpaper, which is available in 5 designs. It features the koi carp swirling in a pool of water, a very fun and lovely design which can look good in bedrooms or in your living rooms. As you can see by the photo below, this room shot was featured in a kitchen.  This was named after the forest and River Derwent in west Cumbria, featuring a silver fishing on a blue background, if you click our link above you can see the rest of the wallpapers in this collection.

this wallpaper would be complemented nicely with Paint Libary’s flat emulsion, maybe with a teal or blue gum colour, or if you wanted a variation, possibly a marble/lead colour.

 

2. Osborne & Little Rain Forest (£180 A Roll)

I love this wallpaper, it has such a nice design to it, honestly is one of my favourite wallpapers (hence being on this list!) This is from the enchanted garden’s collection which is featuring nice entanglement of plants birds and colours to build up a sense of a rainforest, in another sense its A fantastical imagining of a climbing branch of broad veined leaves and colourful blooms populated with exotic birds, its featured in several colourways which can add compliment in a manner of ways. If you were looking for an exotic design in your interior, this would be perfect. Little Greene paint in a matt emulsion in an apple or olive oil might compliment this nicely. Although its up to you what you think may benefit this wallpaper.

3. Cole & Son Miami (£350 A roll)

“Cole & Son Icons Miami, Paying homage to the epicentre of tropical, retro style, the exuberant Miami design featuring layers of terraced colonnades and lush tropical vegetation”

This wallpaper is a classic, personally. It’s been designed so perfectly and captures that retro(ness) from the 80s/90s. it’s a fantastic wallpaper which would look great in any interior rooms. it imagines itself being modern while at the same time remaining to be a classic design. Personally, it reminds me of the early 90s game level designs, almost paying homage to them in some ways.  Their Icons collection is their new collection which features some of the best selling and beautifully designed wallpapers by Cole & Son. This collection is featured in two beautiful designs. ones a retro classic design, while the other is a black white design. Which Gives a nice modern but again classic feel to it. Unfortunately as nice as this wallpaper is, it has got a premium price tag of £350! Although it’s always best to check our discount page to get discount codes to save money on your order.

4.) Rebel Walls Birch Metal (£33/m2)

Rebel walls honestly must be my favourite wallpaper company (no I’m not getting paid to say that!), they have so many modern sleek and creative designs which I really appreciate. Personally, I find a lot of wallpaper companies to aim at an older audience, which I can respect, but Rebel Walls seem to go for a very fashionable modern design which fits into a perfect student/young adult modernish room. It could be that I am just young so I appreciate them more. We also have a Rebel walls Mural in our shop that you may have noticed when you walk in.. Anyway rebel walls have a nice wallpaper called Birch Metal, which has a nice modern sleek design put into it. Combining the versatile look of birches with the scratchy feel of industrial metal – this mural will give your home an earthy atmosphere and yet a bit of a rough touch. Great for those who like to keep it natural but not too neat. would look great in a modern black and white studio or a bedroom. you could use this wallpaper as a wall mural. while using Farrow & Ball’s off-black or black blue on the walls. Or if you prefer to go all white (for that spacious feel) go for a cullana or an all white in an emulsion.

5.) Jane Churchill Cityscape (£85 Per Roll)

This is actually a very nice creative wallpaper. I’m quite fond of Jane Churchill’s designs, they make some very “cutesy” and creative wallpapers, which are loved by lots of our customers.  I choose cityscape to go into this collection because it’s new and has a nice creative sponge printed effect, it would look great in a children’s room or in a study of some form.  Jane Churchill Cityscape collection, featuring A stylised cityscape design with buildings in different shapes creating an all over pattern on a textured vinyl wallcovering. Jane Churchill has designed some great wallpapers, such as the alphabet, Winnie the Pooh and more. This appealing print is another key signature of this collection. The effect of the architectural detail is slightly softened and abstracted with texture and given a geometric effect with blocks of subtle colour. The look is created with layers of subtle metallic and matte inks and further enhanced by an emboss with a horizontal ridge. This innovative design is also available as a printed linen fabric. Vinyl on paper.

Finally, to summarise, I believe these are perfect examples of well-designed wallpapers and why wallpapers are still so great.
