Named the 2017 Pantone colour of the year, “Greenery” is a very cheery shade of green, which will be visible in many fashion and home décor designs this year. It is meant to represent a refreshing touch of nature to help relieve the stresses of this modern day. Flora and fauna are strongly represented by Ferns and butterflies. Take a look at these,
Woodland Ferns or Manila, from Sanderson.
Canopy or the fabulous Eden Roc from Christian Lacroix.
Komodo Leaves from Thibault,
Acanthus from Designers Guild,
Palm Jungle from Cole and Son
Coco de Mer from Ralph Lauren.
These are just a small representation of the awe-inspiring wallcoverings we have.

COLOUR ME BEAUTIFUL
On the colour front, sophisticated hues are poised to take center stage, colours to keep an eye on in 2017. The paint companies have divided their selections into three palettes — Confident, Composed, and Comfortable — and if they are any indication, we'll be drawing decor inspiration from our personalities in the year ahead.
Creative, social types will be drawn to the Confident palette, defined by dusky blues, spicy reds, and lime greens, designed to captivate your attention.
Composed palette. Its earthy greens and taupe’s will be a go-to for traditionalists looking to create a contemporary space.
Comfortable, it’s all about pale pastels, characterized by light pinks, blues, and yellows that make the smallest of spaces pop. Muted shades are ideal for introverts who want to make their first foray into accent colours.
Traditional summery shades like aqua feel sophisticated when grounded with dark wood floors and brass accents.
When paired with black and white accessories, robust teal and polished aqua enliven a minimalist office.
Intended to recall the colours of the ocean, a beachy shade of blue can be used to highlight a home's high ceilings.
All of our fabrics are available online or you can visit one of our stores, where a dedicated team of advisors can help you choose that perfect fabric, just for you.
Sanderson have been exploring baroque botanicals, Zoffany have been obsessing over time-worn paintings and fabrics, Cole & Son have gone ethnic with their textiles and Designers Guild have been mixing florals with geometrics.
Gardening and plants, a national obsession, inspire an eclectic batch of papers from Sanderson, with echoes of ancient Persian patterns, 17th-century baroque and 18th-century botanicals. Zoffany has toured grand British country houses to look at antique furniture and carpets, faded paintwork, paintings, panelling and time-worn fabrics. The result is faded grandeur, with innovative paper-backed fabrics for stroke-me texture. And Scion’s Noukku turns towards Scandinavia. Anthology offers stunning, innovative textures and huge wall panels. Minerals and crystals permeate its latest patterns and colours, with traces of agate, amber and quartz.
“African style is coming of age,” from Cole & Son. Beadwork, homewares made from recycled materials, faux animal prints and ethnic textiles. The Ardmore Collection has exotic flora and fauna, from rare birds to big cats, elephants, rhinos and monkeys, set against the patterns of Zulu beadwork and woven basketware.
The House of Lacroix’s extravagance and spirit, are matched only by their determination to fulfil a unique vision for your home. Explore the full Christian Lacroix fabric collection, suitable for curtains and upholstery.
Heritage for the Here and Now in Thibaut's Greenwood Collection encompasses traditionally rooted patterns for the here and now. This collection of wallpapers and print and embroidered fabrics has a fresh new take on tradition, with spirited large-scale designs. Patterns include Daintree, named after the iconic tropical rainforest on the coast of Australia, a striking zebra stripe, classic paisleys and harmonizing stripes and textures. These beautifully curated designs have been colored in invigorating jewel-tone palettes ranging from deep blue and green and moody plum and fuchsia to light grey and aqua and classic black and neutrals.
