We love The Little Greene Wallpaper range; the stories, history and provenance behind the designs are fascinating. The designs themselves are truly stunning and will make a real design statement in any room.
The Colonial Stripe Wallpaper design is part of Little Greene’s 19th Century Wallpaper range. The 1800s were a key period in the evolution of wallpaper production. During this century, the introduction of continuous paper reels from France, and subsequently roller-printing in 1840, replaced the traditional techniques by which individual rolls (called ‘pieces’) were printed by hand. The flamboyant, decorative style of the Regency Period championed the use of wallpaper. In particular, a fashion for striped wallpapers emerged as they became commercially available; a direct result of this era’s innovative production methods.
This design is an accurate reproduction of one of several wallpapers found in a private residence in St James Place, London, dating from around 1840. Its ornate, block printed decorative detail gives a subtle artisan quality, and the richly coloured blue and red original, faithfully reproduced for this collection, is very typical of the Regency era.
Complementing paint colours include:
Oak Apple (63), Tuscan Red (140), Hicks’ Blue (208), Slaked Lime (105), Slaked Lime Deep (150), Bone China Blue (107), Fescue (231), Mid Lead Colour (114), Chimney Brick (247), White Lead (74), Linnet (89), Pale Lime (70)
