The summer holidays may have ended (yes it’s official, pull on those long johns), but you can still capture the spirit of adventure and travel from a bygone era with Charles’ latest range of charming and nostalgic wallpapers, from the Sandberg Studio at Little Greene. Drawing inspiration from an eclectic range of sources, including old luggage, maps, books, buttons, mens’ tailoring and shoes, Charles has created some timeless designs. The screen-printed papers come in four-panel rolls for ease of hanging, are made using sustainable resources from Scandinavian forests and are washable, which makes them practical as well as stylish. The Albert wallpaper above is an elegant, classical diamond pattern, inspired by the fine detailing on buttoned sofas.
The Mr & Mrs Collins design (think Pride and Prejudice) is a whimsical design that celebrates elements of a carefully co-ordinated wardrobe!
Peggy is a charming paper, based on a dainty floral motif discovered in a hut, which dates back to 1870, situated on the island of Dalarö. (I challenge you to find a package deal there).
Leopold is used on the wall here – a dramatic design with a witty undertone, depicting lions in a stylised forest setting.
Ferdinand wallpaper resembles an antiquarian map, but on closer inspection you’ll find animals from the Leonard fabric, as well as motifs from Greek mythology and sailing ships from yesteryear.
No nostalgic style is complete with a little Stephen – a small-scale plaid wallpaper. *Note to self* a burst of orange works well alongside such earthy colours.
