Strawberry Hill Floret – Sheila Bridges

English, 1772

This pattern is licensed to Adelphi Paper Hangings by The Strawberry Hill Trust.


Adelphi Paper Hangings asked designer Sheila Bridges to create custom colorways for five historical wallpapers.  Read more about Sheila Bridges and what inspired her to create the colorways. 

This spare but quietly dramatic pattern was found in the Tribune Passage at Strawberry Hill, a short hall between the Tribune and the Gallery.

As with our Everard Medallion, the Strawberry Hill Floret creates a sense of depth by using the “slip print” technique. On the paper’s first pass over the printing bench the block printed a very dark gray. During the second pass the same block was used to print the white, offsetting the registration slightly so as to mostly – but not entirely- obscure the first color and create the illusion of a shadow.

Imperial Measurements: Repeat 2 ¾ inches, width 21 inches, straight match.

Metric Measurements: 7.0 cm, 53.3 cm.
