Little Greene Monroe Walpaper - Gold Flower
The second paper in this collection taken from Brooke House in Hackney, East London. For a long period, Brooke House was home to a private hospital and this design takes its name from one of its significant 19th century owners: a Dr John Monroe.
The pattern is recreated from a relatively small remnant found by English Heritage before the house was pulled down in the 1950s.
It is undoubtedly inspired by the Art & Crafts Movement and its familiarity would have been used to help hospital patients feel comfortable and aid their recovery.
