ANDALUCÍA Spectacular design, visual texture, and metallic elements make this large damask print a beauty inspired by the many cultures of Southern Spain. The ground looks woven, like an aged textile, and the medallions, fleurde-lis, and scrollwork are brightened with flecks of metallic ink. Rich enough for a palace, this wallpaper would make an amazing statement in a present day home. The assortment of five includes beige with orchid, cream with gold, and the riveting gold with turquoise. Combine with Whitaker for a complete decorator project. PARCHMENT Heavily textured with a crosshatch pattern and mottled clouds of hazy color this design is printed on a softly glowing field. The wallpaper pattern could be taken for a wood grain or a fibrous woven design and thus has an organic appeal. The three possible color combinations are taupe, beige, or grey… each with the soft sheen of silver. Use it with Monte Christo for maximum effect. GRAND PALAIS Magnifique…with a Parisienne accent! Suitable for a palace, this damask is a modified ogee design in an imposing format. Within the capacious urn-shaped frames, composed of curling leaves, are stunningly ornate floral medallions. Of the five distressed palettes four feature a metallic sheen on the pattern, while the sixth has a chalk white design on a field of pearlescent gold. Some of the selections are sea glass blue with gold, mink with silver, and red with gold. The handsome companion wallpaper is Wembly, in similar glowing colors. WEMBLY Rich simplicity; it’s not a contradiction. The term applies to this handsome wallpaper wherein constraint of design and the glow of metallic inks combine in a pattern with the appearance of an antique textile or aged castle wall. The assortment of six refined color ways includes light caramel with gold, mustard, or glint, a taupe and gold mélange. Each has a lovely counterpart in Grand Palais. CHALFONT Is it an imposter or the real thing? It looks like a heavy fabric or grass cloth. It feels like a heavy fabric or grass cloth. But it is not an imposter. It’s a beautifully textured wallpaper to bring the look of textile to your walls. In addition to the appearance of woven fibers, there is a gentle sheen to some of the colors. It can be used alone, of course, but the quartet of neutral shades work beautifully with more prominent designs like Escala or Granville. Select from gold, beige, khaki, or cream. MONTE CRISTO An elongated quatrefoil is graced with an elaborate design like filigree on a precious piece of jewelry. The intricate center of the frame is embossed with metallic glitter. Large in scale, with open spaces and a pronounced wood-like texture, the pattern could have been hand painted on an aged wall. An assortment of six captivating color combinations include off white with ribbons of sheen and silver glitter or rich cream with glimmering gold and aquamarine. Its intended partner is Woodgrain Texture in suitable hues. OASIS Like an oasis in the heat of an unforgiving desert, this soothing design offers a respite for the eye. Delicate texture with the inclusion of tiny fibers give this pattern the look of hand-crafted paper. The assortment of five hues is subtle yet achieves a subdued richness in shades such as cool glacier blue or deep dark platinum. With the same lovely fibrous treatment and compatible colors as Mikado, these wallpapers were born to be together. MIKADO “The sun, whose rays are all ablaze…” This lyric from the Gilbert and Sullivan opera, Mikado, could describe this delightful wallcovering ablaze with glass beads. The delicate and lacy ogee pattern, in a medium scale, is set upon a field with the fibrous look of handmade paper. This lovely pattern is also available without the beads but with glowing metallic or matte inks on a cross hatched ground with the look of fabric. To complete the project use Oasis in made-to-match colors. MARQUETTE Large, lovely filigree circles roll across a solid background with horizontal streaks adding additional texture to this unique design. Twenty inches in diameter, on some of the five selections the wheels of lacy fretwork are printed in metallic inks while on all five the irregular banding has a glimmering finish and a muted vertical ombre stripe. Select from pale blue with cream and silver or lavender with silver and soft gold. The companion wallpaper is Prado. PRADO Richly textured, entrancing coloration, intriguing design, this wallpaper has irregular horizontal ribbons with a glimmer of precious metal to catch the light and the eye. The raised streaks float across a solid field and are highlighted by the reflective embellishment. As a result the paper has a soft vertical ombre stripe. There are six palettes including pale fog grey with dove grey and silver sheen or rich cream with medium grey and golden glow. For a marvelous combination, use with Marquette. ESCALA Viva Escala! Large and lovely, this pattern is in a celebratory mood. Sixteen inches tall, the strawberry shaped medallions look a bit like fireworks bursting in the sky and cascading to earth. A bit whimsical and a touch lighthearted, this delightful flower centered design would be an exciting addition to most any décor. The design is composed of dots and tear drops on a lightly textured field resembling cloth, some with metallic ink. Among the six palettes you’ll find sea glass blue or lime green with chalk white or citron with bright silver. Use in tandem with Chalfont in appropriate hues. CASABLANCA Inspired by Aubrey Beardsley and the innovators of the Art Nouveau movement, this large scale curvilinear design features oversized lotus blossoms with stylized tulips and sinuous reaching limbs. The background comes in a myriad of breath-taking colors. The fantastic plant life is done in gleaming metallic inks; the overall finish, a look of finest woven nearly-sheer linen. Among the assortment of seven is elegant lavender with soft gold, deep aubergine with bright gold, or an ethereal grey/green base with a green/gold pattern. This wallpaper works beautifully with Cinnabar Stripe in similar hues. BOXHILL STRIPE Meticulous, tailored, regimented… this disciplined stripe pattern is quietly elegant and refined. The vertical bands range from pinstripes to more than three inches in width, sometimes grouped and sometimes single. The tonal artistry and slubbed background lend an appearance of texture and occasional metallic inks lend a touch of sheen. The four available color ways include your choice of pearl, beiges, khaki, or taupe each with gold and each compatible with Granville. CINNABAR STRIPE One of the loveliest stripes ever, this wallpaper makes one think of overlapping layers of the finest semi-sheer linen possible. The subtle shading and intermittent sheen in color of stripes, ranging from nearly a foot to several inches in width, gives an ombre appearance and depth reminiscent of the Art Deco period or the 1920’s; eras for exciting new design ventures. This handsome wallpaper is elegant in a tailored mode and quite appropriate for contemporary décor. There are six palettes including gold with lavender, rust with gold, or soft gold with grey/ green. Use it along with Casablanca. CHARLESTON As gracious as its namesake, Charleston possesses the rich elegance of the Grande Dame of the American South. Massive intricate urn medallions run vertically and alternate horizontally with lush bouquets of fruit and flowers. The background appears to be time-worn antique velvet with a soft reflective sheen while the intricate raised ogee and floral spray design resembles flocking. Exquisite precious metal backgrounds shimmer softly with one exception, a remarkably vivid matte pink with an overlay of creamy beige, also matte. Marry this wallpaper with Whitaker in compatible hues for a beautiful pairing. WHITAKER With the warmth and grace of time-worn velvet, this wallpaper appears to retain a touch of sheen from yesteryear. In actuality this is a current artistic endeavor that only appears to be a rich textile from the past. There are five glowing shades with clouds of matte inks to add that look of antiquity and depth of design. The hues include silver, dark mustard, or new gold and two more, all of which mix and match with the lovely Charleston or Andalucía. GRANVILLE A mesmerizing design, this dazzling damask is an artistic triumph. The masterful artwork takes a large scale ogee pattern and elaborates on it with intricate stylized botanical elements incorporating metallic gleam on a lightly speckled ground. There is nothing spare about this pattern. It is an overall modern interpretation of the rococo period of France that is available in both neutral and arresting colors. The six selections offer dark blue with teal and gold, vivid red with gold, or grey/green with gold and three more. This ornate wallcovering has a flattering companion in Boxhill Stripe or Chalfont.
