vintage inspired wallpaper

Emily Oster

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.

2. Trustworth Studios

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.

3. Farrow and Ball

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.

Spoonflower is a fabric and wallpaper resource that I have known about for years but hadn't really looked at until this week. Two friends of mine are both looking for wallpaper for their little girls room and while I had some go to wallpaper sources to give them - I wanted to see what existed out there at a lower price point. Hence, the rediscovery of Spoonflower which sells wallpaper at $5/sqft for removable and $7.50/sqft for re-positionable. All of Spoonflower patterns are priced the same depending on the fabric type, wallpaper or gift wrap that you choose. You also can create your own design which discounts the price. They offer 2 types of wallpaper, 19 different fabrics and 1 material choice for gift wrap. 

I would say the biggest draw back of Spoonflower, that I have encountered (I haven't ever ordered anything), is that their design library is not very well organized. There are a ton of designs to choose from but instead of being able to sort by pattern then color, each pattern and its respective color is listed individually and in no particular order. I also would make sure to order samples which seems super easy to do so that you can check color and material feel, weight etc. before placing a large order.

Below are three Spoonflower designers that have some great patterns available. Happy shopping!

1. Nouveau Bohemian

Nouveau Bohemian are the designs of Esther Fallon Lau, an Australian artist who also sells her work on Society 6. Definitely a bit folksy but it works for me. 

2. Holli Zollinger

Holli Zollinger has a smaller selection of patterns which I appreciate. They are a bit retro, again a little folksy but use an updated color palette to freshen them up. She also has an Etsy shop where you can purchase pillows in her custom designed prints. 

3. Andrea Lauren

Andrea Lauren offers an insane amount of patterns that I would mostly use for kid spaces. Originally from the U.K. but now living in the states, all of her patterns begin with illustrations and hand carved linocuts.

As promised on Friday, below are some of my favorite wallpapers from Hygge & West. I selected different patterns from those available as fabrics; although, great additional wallpaper colorways are offered in the Foret, Serengeti, Daydream and Otomi patterns.

The Pineapple pattern by Rifle Paper Co. is one of my absolute favorites. Its retro but has been modernized with its available colorways. I think it would look great in a powder room or other small space.

Far less bold than the Pineapple pattern, the Canasta would work in a lot of different spaces and is available in three much more neutral colors. 

The Peony is another statement pattern by Rifle Paper Co. My favorite colorway is probably the blue or the copper.

Finally, the Parajito pattern by Laundry Studio is a whimsical and neutral pattern that I could see working well in a kids room or bathroom.

There are lots more great wallpapers available so check out Hygge & West's website to see more. Happy Monday!
