The Sleeping Beauty' wallpaper first produced in 1879 and designed by
the illustrator Walter Crane. Throughout the 19th century there was an
increased emphasis on the importance of family life and for the first
time areas of wealthy homes began to be set aside for the care of
children. These rooms came to be known as nurseries and required
furnishings suitable for their young occupants. Wallpaper designs
included illustrations from children's literature and educational
subjects such as animal species and plant varieties. 'The Sleeping
Beauty' range of wallpaper was promoted as being washable and free from
all traces of arsenic (a common component of green dyes).
