I took the Victoria Line out to Walthamstow on Wednesday to meet with my friend Charlotte to visit the William Morris Gallery. Having studied Textile Design at Art College William Morris is the absolute KING of repeat pattern and has produced some of the most enduring and timeless designs that are still fresh today.
I had not realised that the beautiful Georgian house (now known as the William Morris Gallery) was actually where Morris lived until his early twenties which made the experience even more interesting!

|Original Morris wallpaper samples protected in frames|
|A wide selection of beautiful Morris wallpaper designs|
|Beautiful ceramic tiles decorated with many delicate patterns based on natural forms|
|Gorgeous planting in the rear gardens of the Gallery|
|Stunning thistles in the garden which are a reoccurring theme in Morris' designs|
Overall I had a beautiful day enjoying this historic building and gardens. More surprisingly the William Morris Gallery is free and has a great cafe and gift shop too. I would highly recommend a visit and if you want to go it's open Wednesday until Sunday from 10.00 until 17.00.
