This blue toile wallpaper is original to one of the rooms, the blue drawing room. It is a stunningly intricate design of plants, birds and monkeys.
Blue and white are of course the colors of the famous Delft china, which is made not far from Amsterdam in the charming town of Delft. This wallpaper is reminiscent of Delft pottery in an intricate exotic way. It is a good example of the title of this blog: another small but beautiful thing I happened to come across, and wanted to share.
