    When this new collection from Little Greene popped in my inbox it filled me with joy, especially on a rainy day such as this! Launching this month they have collaborated with The Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, home to the largest wallpaper archive in the UK. I love how they’ve taken eclectic designs from the 50’s era and applied their expert eye and use of colour resulting in a relaxed style that is really liveable today. The soft pastel palette and pretty motifs would work perfectly in a modern country home.
