Walter Crane Wallpaper Design "Swan Rush and Iris"

Walter Crane's illustrations for children's books are magnificent decorations on a small scale; but his gifts as an ornamental designer and decorator are also apparent in his Arts and Crafts wallpaper designs. Crane designed many exquisite patterns of Victorian wallpaper, some which are still reproduced today to decorate homes. These wall coverings — handsome, dignified, and decorative — still occupy a first place in Victorian style houses where the decorative quality of woodwork and furniture can stand their massive weight, sturdy, vigorous line, and handsome rendering. They do, however, require for the most part, heavy massive woodwork, wainscoting to chair rails, deep toned colors in hangings and upholstery, and decorative chairs of the later periods. Nevertheless, their adaptation to more modern homes can be made with care and thought.
