18th Century Silhouettes!


This fabulous range of children's wallpaper by the very talented Catherine Martin is absolutely gorgeous, elegant and whimsical! This collection is a reflection of Victorian circus illustrations and 18th century silhouettes and is called "Circus Silhouettes". Catherine Martin has done these beautiful wallpapers for Porter's Paints. When I was at Designex in Sydney I found the Porter's Paints stand and couldn't believe they did wallpaper as well .... hence I was very excited and snapped up the sample book immediately. Catherine has also done the "Alphabet City" wallpaper which I have showcased on my blog. This image is courtesy of http://www.porterspaints.com/
I hope you enjoy ....

I had a quick look at the website - wallpaper in particular. It is all very lovely. I really like the look of the pink passion flower but don't really have anywhere for that... just yet ;-) We are going to be painting thick navy and white horizontal stripes in my youngest sons room very soon (he is getting too old for the circus wallpaper now but I would have loved to have done that with the vertical stripes). I hope the painting works out and I can post it.

That wallpaper is lovely, I wish I could turn back time, my son being 5 years old again and then I'd use it in his room...so nice. Love from London x

I love the combo of prints and then strips. Since I still have one foot in the land of Matchy-Matchy, I have difficulty figuring out what I can mix (patterns, shape, color). This is almost a mixture of the very old with the very modern. Luv it.
