Stylish, Lasting, and Strong Outdoor FabricsThat time of year when the sun stays in the sky long and the flowers are blooming around you is approaching near. Naturally, spending your time outdoors is going to become a necessity. We’re going to be showcasing some great applications of gorgeous outdoor fabrics from Osborne & Little and Designers Guild.
What are ‘Outdoor Fabrics’?Outdoor fabrics are textiles produced for the sole purpose of withstanding the harsher conditions of weather and the outdoors. Made from a wide variety of synthetic fibers, polyester, acrylic, and even cotton blends, outdoor fabrics are woven textiles that undergo a chemical treatment during manufacturing. This process allows them to repel water and resist soiling and rot, while impeding mildew growth.

Don’t be Afraid of ColorIncorporating bold colors onto the walls of your home can feel scary. For this reason we’ve compiled a couple different ideas to get you started on your journey to livening up your surroundings and bringing a bright and bold change to your personal space. We’re including wallpapers from brands like Scalamandre, Leilevre, and Designers Guild for starters. You can checkout their respected selections from our shop from brand page. Let’s dive in.
Gradients Are GoodSometimes using an intimidating color like yellow green, or in the above photo ‘acacia’ can be a little frightening since it’s so bright and could appear hard to match. This is why with patterns like Saraille, there is a blend from white into this gorgeous and bright tone. The gradient effect makes the it more appealing and easier to sink into your space. By pairing complimenting tones to the walls, this bright and cheery room feels optimistic and bursting with creativity.
Natural InspirationThis pattern from Leilevre uses bright blue grays and wavy geode effects. The pattern to some might feel a bit wild at first sight, but paired with bright jewel tones it creates quite a statement. The waves and ripples in this wallpaper emulate the curves and grooves found within gem stones that you could crack open, this kind of natural beauty is a trend we’re seeing more and more of and we like it.
Bare NeutralsSand stone and earth tones are bright and welcoming, and keep things neutral. This wallpaper pictured above ‘Brushed Concrete’ by Scalamandre features a tile look on a vinyl wallcovering. The brush effects on them keep it from looking too plain, and give it that raw and natural look for a boho or rattan inspired look. Tan never looked so inspiring.
Osborne and Little Fabric Spring 2020 Has ArrivedA new capsule fabric collection has arrived from Osborne & Little. New geometric velvet options available in gorgeous mixtures of vibrant and muted colors to fit any interior. This versatile collection makes working velvet patterns into your home simple.

Vintage Style, Updated for the times
There’s something timeless and classic about vintage styling, the stories that are told within whimsical floral patterns and the feelings they leave at first sight. It’s this mindset that fuels the creative side of Sandberg Wallpaper. Using updated silhouettes and modern presentation of vintage styles, its amazing how fresh your cozy antique style interior space can feel utilizing their designs. Pictured above is the Ava wallcovering, using line less coloring the color blend and sway into each other perfectly for a soft blended look.
White Walls meet Vibrant colors
It’s easy to see the appeal in white walls, they feel open and refreshing as a surrounding. That’s why its even more refreshing to see new modernized takes on this look. In the wall mural below, delicate leafy foliage is scattered daintily across the wall, as the illusion of vines slowly work their way up the walls. For those into the extra nature-centric looks, this pattern is a pleaser.
Grandiose and Large
Take everything endearing about a bouquet of assorted wild flowers, blow it up the size of your wall: this is floral murals Sandberg style. This type of style isn’t for everybody, but we can’t ignore how stylish this display of rose tones against dusky charcoal resonates. If you love the Julie Wall mural, simply give us a call and we can order it for you.
Whimsical trees and trails snaking across the walls in cool and calm palettes. Kenrokuen by Sandberg uses minimal white negative space to depict complex Asian patterns in a way that feels breathable. Pictured below, the navy and off white color scheme has a rustic vintage look to it but keeps it feeling new with the color disbursement.

Sometimes one might crave some change or a feeling of freshness in their home, business, or any type of space. This piece is going to go over a couple quick ideas you could consider to implement your style or just something different or original. Specifically projects that don’t require a lot of fabric will be the focus.
Projects that require small amounts of fabric:
- Pillows or Cushions
- Roman Shades
- Ottomans or Stools
- Contrast Chair-backing
Pillows and Cushions
Creating custom cushions is an effective and easy way to spice up a space for lounging or relaxation. We love this execution of bright and lively neon and mixed jewel tones. In this particular shot they paired the cushion with matching sofa upholstery fabric, but you can add splashes of color like this to any complimenting or neutral colors to add a dynamic moment.
A trend that’s been popping up more and more lately is the use of roman shades. This is a great way to add patterns and colors you like to places like the kitchen or restroom. Pictured above, Schumacher’s ‘Campagne’ fabric. You can use a fabric from your favored brand in any color or style.
Ottomans and Stools
Why are coffee tables disappearing? It’s because ottomans are making a huge comeback, especially done up in custom fabric. Seen in the above shot, this lustrous velour ‘The Wave’ fabric from Schumacher coordinates the golden brown tones of the roman shade in the back into the center of the living room for earthy harmony.
Contrast Chair Backing
Such a small area, that has quite the impact on one of the most important spaces in your house: the dining room. Contrasting chair back fabric has been around for ages, we’re seeing it make a come back as people utilize complimenting fabrics to unify their designs or add extra flare.
Smart Pairing for a Cohesive Space
In a design world where the trend of simply colored or blank walls runs rampant, incorporating bold and exciting wallpaper can seem daunting. We’re going to be showcasing four different interiors where designers used Cole and Son Wallpaper effortlessly to create stunning and powerful settings.
As Blue as the Jungle
The use of tropical and nature inspired wallpapers is nothing new, but the color scheme and execution are what matter most. We love how Jonday Photography shot this space. The Palm Jungle wallpaper style from Cole & Son features a wide array of blue shades varying from powder to almost navy, paired with an off-white background. To correlate with this pattern, white and glass accessories are used in addition to neutral colored seating. The chair upholstered in Feather Fan shares the same common colors undulating within the more compact abstract pattern to create a powerful coordinating moment.
Frolicking in Minimalism
In a minimal space it can be a challenge to include your own personal touch of style without making it too much. We love this interior because the execution of the wallpaper ‘Cow Parsley’ by Cole & Son Wallpaper tastefully blends right into the room. With neutral and black accents, the predominant color of the room is white. This wallpaper adds texture and pattern to the walls, while keeping the clean and white minimal feeling that is so breatheable and fresh.
A School of Fish in unlikely spaces
Something we always welcome is the beautification of uncommon spaces, somewhere in the house you might not think needs to be visually appealing. In the above photo, this home owner has incorporated Cole & Son’s Melville wallpaper into their laundry room. This simple and calm colored pattern that showcases a variety of different types of fish really puts a fun spin on a room you normally wouldn’t enjoy spending time in doing chores. The motif of fish in the laundry room seems fitting, and really creates personality in an unlikely place.
Combining Sophistication and Whimsy
A largescale rolling cloud print wouldn’t seem like something you could easily include into your design, however the photo above of the entry hallway displaying the print works wonders. Playing off of the black furnishings and detailing, the grayscale ‘Nuvolette’ from Cole & Son wallpaper adds a level of playfulness to this darker themed space. The print keeps the room from feeling too dark or sad, yet calming and relaxing like a cloudy day, perfect for nestling up with your favorite book and a hot cup of coffee.
Have fun with your walls
If there’s a rule to take from all of this, it would be to have fun with your space. Express your personality and don’t be scared of daring patterns. With bold moves, comes large reward especially in how effective your choices can be. If you’d like you can view Cole & Son wallpaper styles here to find something for your own design. Until next time.

2020: Classic BlueThe verdict is in, and the officials over at Pantone have spoken, the 2020 color of the year is Classic Blue! This is the twentieth year that they have chosen the color of the year, beginning in the year 2000 with the color Cerulean Blue. With twenty years since then passing, and the color coming back into a darker and bolder blue, it is a statement of the times.

Finding the Right Floral for your WallsThe world of flower and floral inspired wallpapers is vast and ever expanding. Finding the correct style for your house to pull off that chic and nature centric look you’re going for is the key to pulling it off. We’ll be going over some of the general different types of nature and bloom wallcoverings you can pick to redesign you space.
- Scenic / Panels
- Large Scale Florals
- Small Scale Florals
- Nature Inspired
The Beauty of Scenic and PanelsPictured above we have Magnolia Frieze by Osborne and Little Wallpaper. This wallpaper is sold by the panel in large pieces that you put together to form the master piece in whichever room. We highly recommend the usage of this kind of wallpaper anywhere in the home, getting creative with placement is half of the fun. We’ve seen excellent use of smaller paneled scenic floral papers in powder and wash rooms. This quaint powder room uses Indian Sunflower by Designers Guild Wallpaper to really transform a smaller space. The bright and exuberant colors really add character to the space.
Large Scale Flower MajestyThe appeal of large scale florals is closely tied to visual of vivid and expressive color encapsulating the entire space. Pictured below is the highly embellished Mattiazo by Designers Guild Wallpaper, it portrays gorgeous and large rose blooms in various cascading sizes with emerald leaves splashed between to create a truly lush look.
Petite and Small Scale EleganceOn the more minimal side, we have small-scale floral patterns. One of our favorite examples is this paper by Osborne and Little known as Twiggy. Using intricate line work that winds across the whole wall and miniature blooms, a highly defined and eccentric look is created. The high contrast of the vines and budding flora creates a web-like texture that adds depth to the space. This design is anything but mundane.
Inspired By NatureFor a more novelty or less direct approach, there are many nature inspired wallpapers that incorporate those elements you seek in a floral or lush jungle paper without being so literal. We really love this fun and playful pattern by Matthew Williamson for Osborne and Little called Ananas. It depicts flourishing flower arrangements in the form of pineapples atop a cream background. The light and tropical essence of this pattern leaves the space feeling like a overseas get away that you want to keep coming back home to. All of these patterns are just a few of the countless options available through L.A. Design Concepts. You can click any of these room shots or their names to get more information. Until next time!

Maximalism at It’s FinestThe welcoming of bright and exuberant colors is coming back into the center stage. This living room designed by Meggie H. utilizes bright and bold coral toned fabric.
