Archive Trails Wallpaper from Little Greene

Little Greene 2016 Archive Trails 01_LR

I’m already a huge fan of Little Greene but then they launch their latest wallpaper range and I’m smitten all over again. As its name suggests Archive Trails is a fabulous celebration of floral trails wallpapers which have been drawn from a number of highly respected resources. Over the last decade Little Greene have established a tradition for sourcing authentic archive wallpaper designs and adapting their patterns and colours to 21st century living and this is their best interpretation yet.

Marrying designs from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries this colourful portfolio of seven wallpapers encapsulates the enduring popularity of trailing floral and bird motifs.

David Mottershead, MD of Little Greene enthuses: ‘At Little Greene we have established a tradition for unearthing document designs and breathing new life into them. Oversized florals coupled with exotic birds are traditional and yet very much on-trend right now. Working closely with a team of experts, we have been able to recreate archive fragments in a contemporary yet enduring way and have incorporated colours and scales to suit modern day interiors.’

Archive Trails will be launched in January at ‘Deco Off’ in Paris.

    wow! wow! wow! these wallpapers are stunning. I love a real feature “in your face” wall . With an all white home we have this in our hallway which creates a great impact against all the white.
    Love the Sakura ! x

      Absolutely Karen. I’m not a fan of a feature wall in every room. It’s a bit show home. But one stand out wallpaper in an unexpected place. Wow! x
