Renaissance Strapwork – Brockschmidt & Coleman Colorway

American circa 1845-55


Adelphi Paper Hangings asked designers Bill Brockschmidt and Courtney Coleman from Brockschmidt & Coleman to create custom colorways for five historical wallpapers. Read more about Brockschmidt and Coleman and what inspired them to create the colorways. 

Renaissance Strapwork was one of many layers of patterns found in the principal upstairs bedchamber of a Greek Revival farmhouse in Greenwich, New York. The scrolling strapwork is characteristic of the Renaissance Revival designs, which began to appear in the 1840s and maintained popularity throughout the 1850s. The colorway, using a subtle grey on a white ground and blue highlights, is typical of the foreground/background color aesthetic of the period.
