Herman is a classic mussel pattern that is very contemporary. The design comes from a small detail in the Harriet medallion pattern that we liked so much we turned it into a whole new wallpaper. New England is known for its coastal towns and Herman's shell motifs bring an attractive touch of the seaside to your home. Herman has a warm textile feel, created by the engraving technique used for printing. It is named after American author Herman Melville, who wrote Moby Dick, among others (1819-1891).
