Next up at wallpaperdirect Wallpaper Book Club we are delighted to share with you our latest exclusive collaboration –  Sanderson Wallpaper Edit 

We were delighted when Sanderson agreed that we would work together to create a collection of exclusive wallpapers for Wallpaperdirect, embracing all the beauty of the Sanderson designs with some exciting new colours. Our first step was to select some of our favourite designs and with Rebecca Craig, Lead Designer at Sanderson, we went through some iconic designs as well as some of our favourites on fabric, which were not represented on wallpaper. We wanted to ensure we used some of the traditional printing methods that Sanderson use, particularly surface print, which give a wonderful feeling of depth and colour. The result has been magical and together we have produced an exclusive collection of which we are extremely proud and which we hope will result in a whole new generation of Sanderson devotees!

Above: Rose & Peony 

An absolute show-stopper of a wallpaper, beautifully surface printed to give a textural, painterly finish. First created as a wallpaper design in 1927, Rose & Peony is a Sanderson classic which celebrates these classic English garden flowers. Shown here in dramatic Cerise and Veridian, we have curated this in four new colour combinations.

Complementary Sanderson paint colours:  

Top: Boulder White/ Middle: Rhodera/ Bottom: Burn Black

Above: Hollyhocks

A wonderfully extravagant design on fabric has translated into beautiful wallpapers with a timeless and elegant vintage appeal. Hollyhocks is based on a fabric document in the Sanderson archive, dating back to 1937. The cottage garden favourite flower design is surface printed and is available in five gorgeous colourways.

Complementary Sanderson paint colours:

Top: New Silver/ Middle: Dove Blue/ Bottom: Devon Green

Above: Woodland Ferns

Originally conceived from detailed botanical studies in pen and ink, this digitally printed design shows the intricate detail of three different species of fern arranged in a repeat composition against a solid, single colour background. This striking design has been given a contemporary, large-scale makeover. There are five sophisticated colourways to choose from.

Complementary Sanderson paint colours:

Top: Chiswick White/ Middle: Country Linen/ Bottom: Burn Black

Above: Chelsea

Chelsea, the ultimate rose bouquet, was designed in 1957 and has remained one of Sanderson’s most enduringly popular designs. We had enormous fun bringing it up to date in a range of six new colourways.

Complementary Sanderson paint colours:

Top: Boulder White/ Middle: Dove Blue / Bottom: Sea Pink

Above: Tuileries

Faithfully interpreted from a document in the Sanderson wallpaper archive and named after Tuileries, a palace in Paris which was built in the 16th century and destroyed by fire in 1871, this wallpaper is printed to capture the feel of the original handblocked document and updated with four new contemporary colourways.

Complementary Sanderson paint colours:

Top: Barely Beige/ Middle: Green Almond/ Bottom: Tropical Palm

Above: Stapleton Park

Stapleton Park is a perfect floral bouquet design featuring foxgloves and roses that encapsulates the intrinsic values of English country house chintz. Re-coloured in a both bright and muted contemporary tones across five new colourways.

Complementary Sanderson paint colours:

Top: Chiswick White/ Middle: Papavera/ Bottom: Elder Bark

Above: Palm House

This design’s curving foliage makes an oasis of even the most modest interior, with an elegant arrangement of palm leaves and silhouetted shadows. Surface printed for a striking hand-blocked feel and giving a three-dimensional quality to the gently swaying palm leaves. We are so excited about our new array of exuberant colours!

Complementary Sanderson paint colours:

Top: Barely Beige/ Middle: Canopy Green/ Bottom: Indigo Blue


Above: Etchings & Roses

Based on rare engraved prints from Mulhouse, France, Etchings & Roses exudes an elegant simplicity. The addition of our beautifully coloured backgrounds, which include shimmering mica finishes, give this design a very contemporary feel in spite of its antique origins. We have curated four new colourways.

Complementary Sanderson paint colours:

Top: Snowy Owl/ Middle: Quill Grey/ Bottom: Graphite

Above: King Protea

Another of our absolute favourite designs, King Protea is inspired by a watercolour design from 1971 in the Sanderson archive. A wildly floral pattern with an intensity of colour which gives it a stunningly modern look. We have four exclusive colourways

A fabulous and unique design depicting exquisitely observed cactus plants and orchid flowers encapsulated in a glass-domed terrarium. Available in two new colourways selected for their ease of use.

Palm House

Palm designs always work well in kitchens and this Rose & Eucalyptus colourway is the prettiest way to update your space with a fresh new hue.


For that perfect blue skies feeling nothing beats the soaring romance of this serene 1930’s Swallows design with the birds in their graceful aerial acrobatics set against a cloudless sky. Now finished in shimmering mica old golds.

Etchings & Roses

We were so happy to achieve this vivid Botanical Green colourway of the classic Ethching & Roses design, taking it in a completely new and versatile direction. This represents what the whole collection is about!
