Pure Morris on The Beat That My Heart Skipped

William Morris is the one and only designer that could make me embrace print and colour with abandon. His lush floral prints and dusky colour palettes evoke such vintage romanticism yet remain modern with intricate details in the pattern which have you ever noticed cleverly disguise the repeats?

However, thankfully appealing to my love of neutrals is a brand new game-changing collection ‘Pure Morris’ from Morris and Co. which has just knocked me for a six. The collection uses patterns from the archive, old block prints and well-known styles to created a beautifully nuanced and crafted collection of wallpapers and fabrics which layer blacks, greys, linens, golds, whites, coppers and silvers.

The wallpaper collection consists of eight designs that experiment with beading, crushed glass techniques and scale. Three of the papers were designed using hand-block methods, whilst the others have been repainted in intricate detail to capture the nature of the original designs. The glorious fabrics experiment with a variety of print, weave and embroidery techniques.

The collection is now available to buy from all Morris and Co. retailers (like Liberty, John Lewis and all good interior furnishing stockists)

    I think the patterns and textures do add a different dimension to this neutral collection. It oozes character and style. They have done a fantastic job.

    So many patterns everywhere. I’m a bit scared to use so many in one space. I love the colors and the calmness they provide thought.
    Lovely space:)

    Hi Bilyana – yes lots of pattern can definitely be daunting but I think the neutral colours might allow for maybe even a few patterns to work in the same room together! : )

    I love the warm greys with the oak features – such a calming, earthy feel. 🙂
