Wall­pa­pers and fab­rics for all

east­ern in­flu­ence

En­cap­su­lat­ing hand-fin­ished pat­terns and mo­tifs that draw on a blend­ing of clas­sic dec­o­ra­tive de­signs from Ja­pan and In­dia with sim­ple geometrics. Cre­ate a zen-like fin­ish by mix­ing rest­ful colour com­bi­na­tions with clean-lined, Scandi-style fur­ni­ture.

mod­ern rus­tic

This re­laxed theme has been smartened up with tweed and wool in bold colours, and playful, il­lus­trated prints of wood­land an­i­mals and for­est fo­liage. Wall­pa­pers fea­tur­ing ab­stract pat­terns, sil­hou­ettes and soft metal­lic sheens com­plete the look with a coun­try-luxe edge.


Uni­form geometrics – such as chevron, hon­ey­comb and zigzag – are key to this bou­tique trend. Fab­rics fea­ture plush re­lief pat­terns on tex­tured ground and silky jacquards in hits of retro teal, or­ange and mus­tard. Style up with Fifties-in­spired fur­ni­ture.


The nat­u­ral tex­tures of stone, cracked earth, mar­ble, min­er­als and wood are repli­cated in op­u­lent velvets and shim­mer­ing jacquards. This lus­trous palette will ap­peal to lovers of min­i­mal, glam style.


A re­vival in­spired by clas­sic il­lus­tra­tions, tra­di­tional wa­ter­colours and oil paint­ings has been given a con­tem­po­rary lift with over­sized prints. For an eclec­tic mix, con­trast the busy flo­rals with mod­ern light­ing, plain linens or luxe velvets.


This mod­ern-coun­try style is all about lay­er­ing time­less, na­ture-in­spired prints to cre­ate a calm­ing space. Colour comes in the form of barely there tints of grey, taupe, pink and blue. The pared-back palette lets you layer pat­tern scales and styles with­out fear of over­do­ing it.
