Creating a beautiful bathroom scheme...


Whether you're looking to create a classic colour combination to accompany period features or a bold contemporary look, be inspired to create the perfect bathroom scheme.


The age of Cavendish Stripe is perhaps misleading in terms of its provenance. Dated at 1965, this particular fragment emerged during English Heritage’s restoration work at Marlborough House on Pall Mall, London, though this paper in itself was based on an original from much earlier. In our interpretation, the motif – in fact a flock – has been completely removed to leave a cleaner, more versatile stripe. Pair with Celestial Blue, a dusky variant of sky blue which provides a tranquil calm.



Stitch (c1940) is inspired by embroidered chintz cottons. The use of stippling (dot-work) was popular in embroidery and printing, particularly at a time when block printing was seen as an indication of status. In the late 19th and well into the 20th Century, ornate patterns in the home were a conspicuous symbol of wealth and associated with prosperity. The use of two print colours makes this paper especially easy to coordinate with paint colours and other elements in the room.



Camellia is a a moody tree and petal damask effect floral on a silken background. Create a co-ordinated scheme with the bold and beautiful Smalt.



Created through the simplification and reduction of the larger ‘Woodblock Trail’ paper, 'Woodblock Mono' represents the trend throughout the ages for varying the scales of designs to create different visual effects. Rather more delicate, and infinitely usable in a smaller space, this monochrome version is available in five colourways.
