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 Norcombe Wallpaper design is part of Little Greene’s 20th Century Wallpaper range. This particular century saw streamlined machinery and astute marketeers combine to create a new global demand for commercial wallpapers which, in turn, radically transformed the shape and size of the industry. By the mid-century, wallpaper patterns had become much less restricted by printing methods and much more influenced by the artistic expressions of the post-war era.
From the same ‘Apsley Collection’ by John Line & Sons as the ‘Hampstead’ design, Norcombe is a floral pattern with two print colours that, as a result, gives more depth. Consistent with its contemporaries, the sketched line lends an air of informality, while the order impressed by the repeating pattern means the papers are extremely usable in a contemporary home whilst retaining a true narrative of the 1950s style.
Complementing paint colours include:
Bone China Blue (107), Shirting (129), Clay Pale (152), Clay Mid (153), Tuscan Red (140), Stock (37), Portland Stone Dark (157), Stone-Pale-Cool (65)
