I seem to be on a wallpaper kick as I have really been loving the return of vintage inspired patterns. A few standout companies producing some great designs include: Morris & Co., Trustworth Studios and the popular, Farrow and Ball.
1. Morris & Co.
William Morris was one of the most recognized designers of the Arts and Crafts movement. Born in 1834 in England, Morris started his design company with a group of friends in 1861. Creating beautifully crafted home furnishings, Morris legacy has been his textile and wallpaper designs. For over 150 years, Morris & Co. has been producing original designs that seem to be making quite the comeback as of recent. With so many years in business, there are lots of amazing wallpapers to choose from but here are a few of my favorites.

This kitchen done in Pimpernel is pretty amazing.
David E. Berman started Trustworth Studios in 1982. The company reproduces the designs of CFA Voysey and other well known artists and architects of the Arts and Crafts movement. Selling mainly wallpaper, patterns are priced at $7.00/sqft or $210.00 for a single roll.

I have loved the Apothecary's Garden design for quite some time and was quite excited to figure out its origin. Check out these great kid spaces.
Farrow and Ball is by far the most well known of these three companies. A favorite among paint enthusiasts, F&B also creates stunning wallpaper. F&B was founded in 1946 in Dorset, England by John Farrow and Richard Ball. In the 1990s, the company went through a series of transitions and milestones that included opening its first showroom, beginning their wallpaper line based off traditional block and trough methods and the expansions of their products overseas. Today, F&B is one of the most recognized paint and wallpaper companies.
