Linwood Fabrics & Wallpapers


When I came across Linwood Fabrics recently on Instagram, it was fabric and wallpaper love at first sight.

And the further I delved into their collections, the more I fell in love. And then I received a sample delivery and wanted to find a place for each and every fabric and wallpaper in my home.  Linwood have the air of a company that's been around a lot longer than their relatively young twenty-four years, with their newest Tango collection already feeling like a classic. Like a good pop song you just can't shake, their designs feel familiar yet fresh at the same time. I should also mention that they know a thing or two about presentation. How beautiful is this sample wrap?!

Anyway, enough fan-girling, I’ve teamed up with Linwood and created four schemes using their fabrics and wallpapers, and honestly, although these days I’m more drawn to the neutral tones of my Pale & Interesting scheme, I actually love each one of these schemes as much as the next, and I had SO much fun creating them, as you can probably tell!

I think my personal interior style is a little schizophrenic, but with the amount of imagery we’re bombarded with on a daily basis I also think that’s completely normal. It’s also okay to love an over the top Colourful Maximalist scheme, but prefer to live predominantly with soft neutrals in your home, it’s okay to love the Dark & Moody look, but prefer to live with brights. And it’s also okay to love lots of different looks too. I’m not saying you should throw all these looks into your home, but you know, your home, your rules. And if you want a bit of everything? Why not?

Pale & Interesting

A neutral room that isn’t dull and sterile requires a lot of layering and texture. So a patterned (or textured) wallpaper is a great start, then add velvets, linens, and warm metallics. A bit of whimsy is a must. And even a pale room needs grounding with a touch of black (or in this case, charcoal).

Dark & Moody

I adore this look and have fallen a bit head over heels for the Island Paradise wallpaper too. How far you go with wallpaper is of course up to you – one wall, two walls or all four, or just the ceiling, just a chimney breast, the backs of shelves – the possibilities are endless!

I love the look of print on print, or as I like to call it, Pattern Drench. Whether it’s matching or contrasting colour ways, this look is always so much fun!

Colourful Maximalist

This look has been having a real moment of late, but it does need to be considered to stop it looking too chaotic. Keep some colour continuity by taking your secondary colours from your main colour source. In this case the green of the wallpaper is echoed in the stunning Jungle Rumble velvet, and the other fabric colours are taken from that.

The result is actually quite a restricted colour palette and that’s why it works. I love this Jungle Rumble print so much and it also comes in wallpaper. Firmly bookmarked for use in my house one day. A hallway or a cloakroom is perfect if you don’t want this much busy pattern in rooms you spend the most time in.
