Little Greene Wallpaper Burges Snail Lemon
The Little Greene Burges Snail Wallpaper is a unique and charming design with a rich history. It finds its origin in Knightshayes Court, a stunning architectural masterpiece built between 1869 and 1874 in Devon. The court was designed for the Heathcoat Amory family by the renowned Gothic Revivalist architect and interior designer William Burges. Burges was known for his eccentric and sometimes controversial character, often designing in medieval costumes.
This wallpaper reflects the quirky and charming essence of Burges's design sensibilities. It adorns the walls of one of the bathrooms at Knightshayes Court and is a testament to his distinctive style. Interestingly, it was introduced during a later restoration, following a period when subsequent generations of the family attempted to minimize the house's elaborate High Victorian Gothic styling.
The Burges Snail Wallpaper is a captivating choice for interior decoration, offering a blend of historical charm and artistic eccentricity. It allows you to infuse your living space with a touch of the whimsical and unique, paying homage to the creativity of William Burges and the intriguing history of Knightshayes Court.
