The new Schumacher library of wallcoverings just arrived and it is epic! It contains over 2000 patterns and 150 inspiration images.
Categorized by type, like Trellis, Chinoiserie, Large Scale Graphic Patterns, Textured Wallcoverings…etc. - you get the idea - this is such a great resource all gathered in one book. Let’s look at some of the options from classics to classics with a twist!
Nothing evokes sunroom faster than a classic trellis wallcovering! But look at this gloriously detailed one in this gorgeous shade of robin’s egg blue! Be still my heart. I need a lovely conservatory room so I can use this…well, I’d like one in any case, but wouldn’t this be fabulous? Or in a garden inspired bedroom or dining room? The vertical stripe of the pattern adds height and the trompe l’oeil design adds a sense of space magically to any room.
And speaking of gardens and pretty colors, check out this fanciful chinoiserie in soft shades of blue, green, sand, and pink. Subtle and sophisticated this comes in fabric as well allowing for matching bedding, upholstery, or window treatments. And there are such wonderful colors to highlight in coordinating paint, trim, and textiles.
Or this large scale chinoiserie patterned after an antique Chinese silk panel - this wallcovering is sold by the panel and each panel is 12’ high. I love how designer Brittany Bromley used it right up onto the angled ceiling in this capacious dining space. It comes in 7 different colorways, but this green is especially striking and fresh - particularly when paired with cobalt blue accents!
Another classic new traditional pattern that makes a statement is this birds and butterflies wallpaper. Straddling the line between bold graphic contemporary and colorful classic botanical, this paper works well wherever a fresh touch is needed.
There are SO many beautiful wallpapers in the Schumacher collections, but the final few I want to highlight are these gorgeous textured ones - they all come in a variety of colorways. The first is a textured sisal with flowering branch silhouettes, and the last is a modern beaded damask.
