A Floral Pairing

York Wallcoverings debuts the second edition of its Blooms collection and engages Atlanta floral designer Canaan Marshall to choose a favorite print as inspiration for his exuberant displays.

Whether you want bold florals on your walls or more demure ones, York Wallcoverings has you covered with the second edition of their popular Blooms collection—14 fresh designs in multiple colorways for a total of 72 different styles. This new rendition of Blooms expands into fauna with the inclusion of butterflies, tree frogs, and other small inhabitants of plants and trees. “Our Blooms collection harnesses the natural healing power of different florals,” says Carol Miller, trend and color expert for York Wallcoverings.

To celebrate the new collection, York reached out to Atlanta floral talent Canaan Marshall to create designs based on the wallcoverings. Canaan chose his favorite, Rachel Rose Mural, as inspiration. “It really spoke to me,” he says. “The way the flowers pop off the paper makes them look very realistic. I love the mural effect with a black border on the bottom and a white one on top and color in the middle. Sometimes colors on papers are not the same when you see them in person, but these are really rich and saturated.” Other standouts include the airy print Lunaria Silhouette, the bird-and-butterfly-filled Teahouse Floral, the more abstract Brushstroke Floral, and the chinoiserie-inspired Dream Blossom. The only problem will be choosing just one—thankfully, you don’t have to! The more flowers, the better.
