Today I want to celebrate the 183rd birthday of William Morris, the founder of Morris & Co. The company, founded in 1861, is one of the premier wallcovering companies in Europe. Their style is classic arts and crafts hand-blocked bold designs with bright colors. Their new collection, called ‘Pure Morris’ is like no other collection from the past. It incorporates classic Morris prints with tonal, textured beading elements and more neutral colors, making the collection more ‘transitional.’ It reaches out to clients that own classic Victorian homes, which enables them to incorporate their contemporary tastes. ‘Pure Morris’ pays homage to the man who started it all with a modern and contemporary twist, and it is an honor in my thirty-odd years in the wallcovering and design industry to work with such an esteemed company.
Come on in and see the tribute, check out other styles as well. And, as I always say, “Don’t be afraid to decorate!”
