    Sneak peek: stunning textiles and wallpaper

    by  • Wednesday, January 14, 2015 • 1 Comment

    Designer Louise Body is launching a fresh new collection of wallpapers and fabrics this month called Peggy. The geometric and abstract patterns are inspired by 20th century artists who produced simple, hand blocked prints. Made up of four wallpaper designs and nine printed fabrics, they have been designed to work in harmony together within the same scheme. What do you think of the lovely muted colour palette?

    I love the photography as it’s full of application ideas! Upholster the seat pad on a vintage stool, make a display with framed wallpaper, use below a picture rail or make into cushions. The designs are stunning and would work well in a bedroom, living room or dining room. Launching officially at Maison et Objet in Paris this month you will be able to buy from her website shortly.
