Inspiration: Marthe Armitage

Lovely handmade wallpapers by Marthe Armitage for some Monday inspiration…

I saw her work a few years back in Gardens Illustrated (lovely British gardening magazine) but forgot about her until she started popping up on someĀ popular blogs recently.

Marthe lino cuts all of her designs by hand, which gives them that wonderful rough and organic feel, so many happy mistakes occur in lino cutting, I just love it…

Marthe Armitage would work on her designs around her family life. She started making wallpaper to cover up the holes and cracks in her families home.

Each design is made to order and is hand printed using a beautiful old lithographic printing press that Marthe has used for over 40 years.



  1. Mair,

    Love the wallpaper it has inspired me to change my bedroom, my boudoir, the wallpaper of poppies put on loving by a dear brother-in-law for my mother some years ago; sadly both have passed away. I am sentimental to a fault and love waking up it inspiring surroundings!
