The latest collection at Osborne and Little is dramatic, evocative and richly-textured. Pompadour is a range of stylized leaves, flowers, scrollwork and paisley, named after various mistresses of Louis XIV, XV and XVI.

Pompadour wallpapers and fabrics

There are several stunning velvets in very regal purple, gold, charteuse and pink. I love the roomset below – that wallpaper would be great for a dining room.

Perhaps the most surprising new addition, though, is the Onyx range of wallpapers. These designs look like slices of natural stone or precious metal. They would be a great way to add understated texture to a single wall or a whole room.
