Comprised of large, stylised poppies consistent with designs in production during the late 19th century, this magnificent wallpaper adorned the corridor walls at the top of the staircase at Felbrigg Hall, Norfolk. It was also discovered as rolled up samples in the attic stores and was believed to have been designed by Arthur L. Gwatkin.
Available in 5 statement colour variations, this wallpaper is the perfect way to add a touch of flamboyance and flair to your interior walls.
Dahlia Scroll (c. 1890 – 1900)
A historical scrolling floral derived from Newark Park in Gloucestershire, this intricate pattern combines elements of Japanese design and Art Nouveau through its complex motif of enlarged Dahlia blooms and sinuous foliage. Synonymous with Voysey’s early work, the Dahlia Scroll wallpaper is a true statement piece enriched with classic charm and heritage.
Featuring two tonal variations, this surface printed wallpaper is available in 7 colour ways, from soft neutrals through to dramatic shades of yellow, blue and green.
Hoja (c. Late 1890s – 1900)
This traditional style scrolling wallpaper was taken from the decor of the attic stores in Oxburgh Hall. Despite showcasing elements from 17th century Spanish embossed and gilded leather, the Hoja wallpaper design is in fact believed to have originated between 1890-1900.
Reproduced in 6 colour ways (4 tonal variations of a single colour and 2 colour combinations), Little Greene have employed a traditional surface printing technique for a beautiful, painterly look and feel.

Little Greene Colour Drenching
Various designs in the National Trust Papers III collection also reflect the on trend concept of colour drenching. This focuses on the idea of colouring multiple elements of decor in the same colour or closely related shades for maximum impact. Whether you choose a bold colour or something more simple and understated, this trend allows you to create a fully cohesive look that flows throughout the room. The 3 designs above (Poppy Trail – Masquerade, Dahlia Scroll – Giallo and Hoja – Air Force Blue) are beautiful examples to help create this look.
A beautifully collated collection of heritage wallpaper designs, National Trust Papers III by Little Greene takes us on a journey through time to celebrate the history of decoration. This inspired range also helps towards the preservation of the Nation’s historic houses, gardens and landscapes, with Little Greene giving contributions from the sale of every roll of wallpaper and tin of paint to the National Trust.
The Little Greene National Trust Papers III wallpapers also complement the Little Greene Paint collection.
