Little Greene paints and wallpapers: British history for your home - wherever you live! A family-owned business Little Greene is renowned for its extensive, high quality paint palette of beautiful heritage colours and the incredible finish the paints achieve as well as their amazing archive of wallpaper designs. Manufactured at the company’s factory in Bethesda, North Wales, Little Greene’s paints are made with the finest ingredients and contain up to 40% more pigment than ordinary paints. And it is these high levels of pigment which create undertones that subtly change with the light, providing colours of real character and definition. They are justifiably proud of that fact that they have records dating back to the early 1700s, the Little Greene Dye 10

Works of Collyhurst Wood, on the outskirts of Manchester is believed to be England’s most ancient industrial site for the manufacturing of colours. Early dyes for the cotton industry were based on natural pigments, extracted from exotic woods: the development of synthetic compounds for the colouring of materials during later centuries provided faster and more efficient production. Today, Little Greene continues its search for safe and efficient technology for the colouring of its paints, whilst retaining its commitment to quality and service. The wallpaper collections span 300 years of English decoration, and many of the wallpapers are extracted from the National Trust, English Heritage and the Whitworth Art

Little Greene works with two British wallpaper manufacturers whose printing machines have remained unchanged since the 1830s. Many of the wallpapers are produced using traditional surface printing rollers to apply paint, which results in a tactile, painted-paper effect. To this day, the paints remain handcrafted and Little Greene fosters the manual skills of its workforce to continue the tradition of handmade paints and papers. 12

Managing Director, David Mottershead, says: ‘It is only through the use of high-quality ingredients and traditional methods that we are able to create such depth of colour. It is due to the combination of these excellent ingredients and the skills of our workforce that we are able to produce such beautiful and enduring products with the character and beauty that our customers desire.’ The Little Greene colour palette contains over 200 shades, including period colours which are all available from Designerpaint.com and all their wallpapers are with us at wallpaperdirect.com.

We share with you our conversation with the design team at Cole & Son as they approach the Seville Collection.

Seville Collection - An Introduction Thinking back on her first visit to the Andalusian capital, Cole & Son’s Design Director Carley Bean reflects how she was struck by the beautiful and diverse cultural influences around the city. “Seville is such a captivating city full of charm - visually

it has so much to offer: architecture, flora, fauna, culture, people and amazing food, as it inspires the likes of architects, musicians and poets throughout history,” Carley knew that her team would find a wealth of material to work from. “Within the first day of our inspiration trip we had well

over 30 ideas for different designs and concepts; around every corner was something new,” she enthused. The varied styles of the city spoke to each of the designers in turn, with handcrafted ceramics spawning sunshinefilled tile prints, bursting boughs of delicate bougainvillea creating softly painterly florals, and passion-filled flamenco performances pushing the team to look deeper into Sevillian music culture and symbolism.


Wallpaper: Angel’s Trumpet £135 per roll

“Oranges are also, of course, synonymous with Seville and so it was a challenge for us to present this in a unique way that reflected the courtyards and city streets brimming with fruit trees,” says Carley. The result, Orange Blossom, is a beautifully structured botanical print in tapestrylike vintage palettes. Hidden across the city are ancient ruins, some of the oldest being found under the newly built Las Setas complex and dating back to Roman times. One such ancient monument has become the city’s icon, the Alcazar, which left a lasting impression on the Design Studio as a stand-alone piece of art in itself. “The

Studio spent hours gathering Wallpaper: Orange Blossom £115 per roll source material that formed the foundation real ode to the artisanal artistry of many of the that abounds throughout Seville, collection’s designs,” explains Carley. from the ceramic artists in Triana to From its Mudéjar style came botanical, the gardeners and horticulturalists architectural and ceramic-inspired prints. ensuring the city’s parks and formal gardens are kept in full bloom,” Each of the azulejos, ceramic tile, designs are taken from tiles both antique and new that the Design Studio found around the city; with hand-painted pots covering balconies and window boxes, and the highly ornate Alcazar palace rooms and courtyards. “The collection is a W A L L P A P E R D I R E C T.

Another integral part of Seville’s history is flamenco. The artform began in the city’s artisan quarter of Triana and has become a symbol of both the region as well as Spain as a whole. “The passion-filled performances we 15


witnessed around the city, both in the streets and dedicated theatres, were so arresting, there was no escaping the percussive call of guitars and footwork,” comments Carley. “As well as the aural influence of flamenco, we were struck by the beauty of the dancers’ dresses and fans, their ornate embroidery and distinctive silhouette were incredibly influential in both the damask design of Lola and the opulent Flamenco Fan. We really feel like we managed to capture the drama and symbolism of flamenco in these designs with intricate metallic detailing and bursting rosettes of carnations and roses,” she adds.

With over 40 years of experience and over two generations, Coordonné has put its energies into editing decorative wallcovering and fabric collections. Their collections cover a wide range of styles: signature designer collections; classiccontemporary collections; the Random range of murals and compendium collections of designs for both home and business.

The premise for both collections is that our homes are, and will always be, our safe havens. And we should celebrate this and unleash our creativity and allow our walls to take us safely, to magical places. The Random Archist designs pay homage to the artistic work of contemporary architects: and brings us 4 different stories from architecture: Landscape, Painter, Sculptor and Illusionist. Landscape – mimicking Nature and bringing the outside indoors but still contained within the architecture. Painter – playing with colours in a simple but elegant structure. Sculptor – balancing textures and sufaces with a repetitive pattern and a sense of scale Illusionist – understanding how structure creates visual effect and tricks the eye to see interior spaces differently.

So fall in love with country house influences, artistic and eclectic, the freshness of seas and tranquil waterways, swaying grasses, abundant blooms and the warmth of a walled garden. Delicate bees and dainty butterflies meander gracefully alongside swooping birds that soar majestically amidst the fabric of a warm summer sky creating fabrics which explore the National Trust’s raison d’être, and when teamed with documents from the extensive Sanderson archive, create a unique and compelling design story. Natural greens, fresh yellows, floral pinks and pops of kingfisher blue sit perfectly alongside contemporary greys and laid-back neutrals, reflecting the tones of age-old buildings and the glory of the much-loved countryside.

The renowned interior decorating firm was founded in the 1930s by the socialite, Sibyl Colefax and the talented artist and interior decorator, John Fowler. In the late 1940s Sibyl Colefax sold the company to the American heiress Nancy Lancaster and it was through her impressive social connections and exceptional taste that she and John Fowler created the ‘country house look’. Their talents and tastes were complementary; combined, they made a truly formidable decorating duo. Today, the interior design business continues to flourish, reverting to its original trading name of Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler in the 1990s, while the design studio ensures that timeless elegance continues to define Colefax and Fowler’s essentially English aesthetic. The brand’s collections are characterised by sophisticated designs, created using advanced printing and weaving techniques, in subtle colours. Each annual collection features striking and luxurious fabrics and a beautiful series of decorative and textured wallpapers.

QUINTESSENTIALLY ELEGANT: Classic designs for that modern country style. 36 Wallpaper: Bowood

Their latest wallpaper collection JARDINE FLORALS celebrates the abundance of nature’s flowers, from exotic, Chinoisinspired peonies to wisteria-laden branches.

When you think of Farrow & Ball, you’re probably thinking of the eco-friendly manufacturer’s richly pigmented paints, its memorable palette, quirky paint names or perhaps its distinctive wallpaper patterns. But when it comes to decorating a busy home, we all know that colour and print are far from the only considerations, and that’s precisely where Modern Emulsion – Farrow & Ball’s washable, wipeable, remarkably unmarkable paint finish – comes in.

Like all Farrow & Ball interior finishes, Modern Emulsion comes in a full range of colours thoughtfully designed to sit alongside the brand’s handcrafted wallpapers. Uniquely, instead of ink, each roll is printed with Farrow & Ball’s own water based paint, creating a tactile effect and rich depth of colour, and making the creation of a full-room colour scheme positively effortless.

Modern Emulsion is also tough enough to stand up to whatever life can throw at it, pairing Farrow & Ball’s trademark depth of colour with a finish that suits even the most demanding areas of the home. In any high-energy household, marks on the walls are bound to happen – but that doesn’t mean they need to stay there. Modern Emulsion is superbly easy to clean because its generous helpings of high-performance binder and high-quality minerals combine to create a smooth surface, allowing spills and splashes to be wiped off easily. They also create a strong, easy-to-clean paint film that stands up to scrubbing – because no-one wants to see their perfectly applied paint come off on the cloth.

The very same ingredients that give Modern Emulsion its easy-to-clean finish are also what helps to make it super tough. Farrow & Ball packs its paints with high-quality minerals and lots of ultra-tough binder. This makes Modern Emulsion more solid, and thus resistant to knocks, scuffs, and scrapes – ideal for even the busiest spots in your home.

For further proof (if any were needed) that Modern Emulsion is the ultimate versatile finish for any home, try it in a kitchen or bathroom. Using less hardy paint finishes in these moisture-prone spots can leave mould free to flourish on the paint surface. Modern Emulsion, by contrast, contains a preservative that protects the paint surface against mould, keeping your kitchen or bathroom looking fresher for longer. W A L L P A P E R D I R E C T.

In keeping with the rest of the Farrow & Ball range, Modern Emulsion is proudly crafted with an eco-friendly water base. Classified as Low VOC and rated A+ for indoor air quality, it minimises the impact of your painting project on both your home and the people who live there. Plus, the entire Modern and Estate interior paint ranges are certified child and baby safe in accordance with Toy Safety Standards, so you can create wonderful new looks with paint and paper all over your home, even in a nursery or child’s room, without worry.

A Bounty of Botanicals

Introducing Villa Nova’s Scene and Ostara Wallcovering collections. Embrace the beauty of the great-outdoors with botanicalinspired wallcoverings. Villa Nova’s love affair with nature continues with Scene and Ostara Wallcoverings, two expressive collections of decorative wallcoverings that bring the outside in with lush foliage, blossoming florals and English countryside scenes.

surroundings and be inspired by green spaces. The result was Scene Wallcoverings, an appealing collection that captures the subtleties of nature; fluid, wild grasses sit with landscape scenes, inspired by vast countryside and distant horizons. Expressive and unique, wonderful textures are paired with a muted palette to create wallcoverings that are full of charm. Subtle Japanese references bring a beautiful simplicity to the collection, whilst textural embosses and a gentle lustre add an intriguing dimension and elements of interest. Ostara Wallcoverings - The vigour of botanicals From glasshouse blooms, painterly fronds to lush foliage, botanical wallcoverings are a lasting way to give your home a fresh, energising and uplifting feel. Ostara Wallcoverings is a dramatic collection of vinyl and nonwoven wallcoverings that combine stylishly embossed

textures and artistic botanical patterns. Evocative of tropical foliage, dynamic fronds and striking large-scale scenic murals mix effortlessly with simple tonal textures and easy to use designs. Exaggerated brush marks add an artistic and exhilarating feel to the collection. This exuberant range of wallcoverings is presented in fresh, easy to use shades with shimmering flashes of metallic that sit with unexpected pops of vibrant hues. A full range of printed fabrics, decorative weaves, cushions and a throw have been designed to coordinate with these stunning wallcovering collections. Scene and Ostara Wallcoverings create a stylish impact on all four walls or for a more subtle look team patterned designs with semi-plain, textured wallcoverings.

We are celebrating 100 years of Albany and one of the first things we did was look at crowning this event with some new designs, which both celebrate the past but are very much about the here and now. So we were delighted when the lovely people at Mini Moderns agreed to join in the fun!

Albany X Mini Moderns Keith and Mark were given free rein to create two new patterns, from a decade of their choice, to mark the occasion. Unsurprisingly, based on the duo’s signature style, the pair were immediately drawn to the mid-century years of the 1950s and 1960s and so Atelier and FAB! were born.

Atelier is 50s inspired design based on the treasured finds of Keith and Mark’s visits to the galleries and markets of Paris while FAB! is an homage to Fab 208 pop magazine from the 60s and features a bold, large scale geometric print. Taking inspiration from Pop, Op and Hard Edge painting movements, Keith and Mark also drew upon their love of sixties fashion for the design, from Carnaby Street to Mary Quant and interiors by Verner Panton.

The designers say that the collaboration with Albany has been extremely rewarding. “This has been a dream collaboration for a pair of mid-century nuts like us”, say Mark and Keith. “We’ve worked closely with Melanie Adams and Alice Bell, who gave us total creative freedom. We’ve enjoyed exploring the possibilities of some new production techniques too. We are so excited to launch the two new prints and we’re certain that the designs will appeal to our core fans and people new to our brand.” The Albany X Mini Moderns designs are both paste the wall and are exclusively available, in celebration of 100 years of Albany, from wallpaperdirect.com and brewers.co.uk.
