Design Tips: Wallpaper blends Modern Metallics with Nature

We know metallics have been the big thing lately... mirrors and metals, silvers, bronze, and gold finishes are fabulous for fabrics and furniture finishes. It seems the antithesis to another big thing, the organic trend in textures and color. Sleek with the rough? Manmade and the natural? Shiny and... not?

Guess what, they've all been combined.

Schumacher's new "Modern Glamour" wall coverings line picks up where old-school Hollywood glamour, handmade authenticity and textures from nature leave off.

The "Greek Key Sisal" pattern shown here is a hand printed on a natural sisal paper in a geometric key motif and is available in this blue called "Peacock," a silver and charcoal black. All have a subtle sheen. Other geometric prints include the pretty "Beaded Scroll."

A beautiful texture from sharkskin called "Shagreen" is embossed, given a glossy finish and is available in both handsome neutrals as well as vivid colors like this "Chinese Orange" and a red. Other animal inspired textures include Snakeskin, Crocodile and Lizard.

A wonderful raised handmade herringbone pattern characterize the "Chevron Texture" line. This "White Gold" color is available, as is a rich "Burnished Bronze," a silvery "Mineral," and neutral light brown "Sable." This is a beautiful option if you're thinking of a grasscloth but want something a little sleeker. Other simple textures include stripes, grid patterns, strie and plaid.

Schumacher has offered some of the highest quality wall coverings, fabrics, furniture and trimmings and is available through interior designers (like us at Jennifer Adams Design Group) and showrooms worldwide. Look for this trend to trickle down to affordable solutions and DIY interpretations in the months to come.

Until next time!
