Print designer extraordinaire Florence Broadhurst at her desk in Paddington

Florence Broadhurst wallpaper. Her work was hand drawn and hand printed. The imagery she created was a psychedelic kaleidoscope of colour and pattern from bold oriental patterns to colourful exotic birds. She totally revolutionised the wallpaper industry that was trudging along with dreary conservative designs.

Florence’s designs were hand drawn, painted and printed creating a kaleidoscope of colours and patterns reflecting her travels and life. She used new materials included metallic which are once again popular today.


FLORENCE BROADHURST: Florence and her original peacock wallpapers, which influenced today's present use of peacock and other oriental animal prints. Her use of oriental animals and prints originated from her travels and career abroad in India and China.
