This fall we are loving metallics in our wallpapers. Warm golds, bronze tones, and rich coppers are among our favorites we have been seeing in a variety of patterns. We have selected our favorites of the season for your browsing pleasure…
The real star of the show this season is Issoria in Gold. The metallic ground takes what would be a whimsical pattern and elevates it to be surprisingly sophisticated. Where we saw an influx of butterfly patterns in the past couple of seasons, it looks like moths are the new butterfly. And these moths are something special. Mixing gold, oranges, pinks, and sage greens, the moths are incredibly detailed and dynamic. We highly recommend seeing this pattern in person, because pictures just don’t do it justice.
Flavor Paper collaborated with designer David Nosanchuk to produce our next pick of the season in the mural Golden Relief. This pattern was designed from a single detail of a late nineteenth century sculpture of a female figure. This is part of a larger collection Nosanchuk designed for Flavor Paper, called “Super Series”, which is based on photographs from Rome and New York. In the series, he aims to translate art and architecture into a “narrative of luminosity and scale”.
L’Amour in Black in Gold is another brand new pattern this season. And by “brand new” we mean that the samples are still on their way to our showroom. Despite not seeing this one in person YET, we are absolutely in love. This pattern is a design from Tempaper, meaning that our apartment dwelling clients can get in on all the metallic action. The pattern was created with paint strokes, which Tempaper says is their abstract interpretation on love.
This pattern by Signature Prints is called “Spotted Floral” in the color Gunmetal. This one is an old favorite of ours. We have had this pattern in our showroom for a while but it remains a go-to pick for clients looking for an oversized floral pattern. The bigger the floral the more graphic and modern a floral will feel. Having said that, this pattern is actually an historic print designed by the famous Florence Broadhurst of Australia.
Not all metallics have to be moody. Our last pick is a gold pattern by Jill Malek, entitled Plume. Malek plays with white and a metallic gold ink to create this light, playful pattern. We love this pattern because the white ground makes the whole wallpaper feel airy and clean. Then once your eye catches the gold pattern, it moves through the pattern effortlessly. We think this pattern would be versatile for many different rooms and can be dressed up or down depending on your styling and decor.
