Melissa Scott’s - Showgirls Wallpaper Blue'

Wallpapers these days can make quite a statement, gone are the days of boring woodchip painted magnolia. There's now a huge variety of papers to choose from an we find ourselves doing a lot more wallpaper PR.

 

The use of wallpaper goes back a long way - the earliest papers are often called ‘black-and-white’ papers because they were printed in carbon ink and one of the popular uses wasto line the inside of wooden boxes, or chests.  A fragmentary design that includes the arms of England surrounded by Tudor roses, masks and vases of flowers has been found at Besford Court in Worcestershire; c.1550-70 in date. The Wallpaper History Society founded in 1986 provides a unique forum for wallcoverings professionals and enthusiasts.

  

"A fabulous wallpaper design evoking a graphic, contemporary take on a classic Burlesque theme, while maintaining an essence of style and sophistication. Melissa's wallpaper design is a combination of hand painting and digital illustration resulting in an effective and distinctive outcome. Inspired by subculture, Burlesque and Pop Art, Showgirls is a unique wallpaper design suited to making a strong, colourful                                                                            statement while providing the perfect accompaniment to a sumptuous and glamourous interior."
