London's Calling: de Gournay + Erdem

This year, venerable British hand-painted wallpaper firm de Gournay looked to the fashion scene for inspiration, joining up with London-based designer Erdem Moralioglu of the fashion label Erdem, which is known for exuberant feminine frocks and attention to detail. For de Gournay, Erdem and his team created a pattern with hydrangea, hollyhock, iris, and morning glory amidst a lattice of branches with birds darting through foliage. In turn, Erdem’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection includes dresses inspired by de Gournay’s works and rescaled for fashion, with florals strewn across backgrounds of white, navy, and black. (;

Pretty Pairing: Aerin + Frances Palmer

Perennial favorite Frances Palmer is beloved for creating supple, graceful vases as beautiful as the flowers she grows to fill them. The ceramist has teamed up with Aerin Lauder again to create perfect pieces with a whimsical nod inspired by wildflowers. Whether it’s a small striped vase in sage, lilac, or hydrangea blue or a white tulipiere, we feel sure we’ll need one of each! (From $300 for a handcrafted 6-inch-tall vase,

Espresso Chic: Nimerology

We fell for her limited edition I’m Off to Join the Circus collection, which includes pretty floral espresso cups and saucers to give the daily caffeine fix a boost of style. ($250/set of four cups and saucers in four colors,

The Vale

The Spring/Summer 2020 Beaufort collection from London-based textile and wallpaper firm The Vale also celebrates flora and fauna with wonderful flair. For her wallpaper designs, founder Melinda Marquardt looks to dramatic artichokes, dahlias, peonies, and tulips as well as the African gray parrot, serpents, and panthers. The Beaufort palette leans toward a quieter presence—muted aqua, dusty pink, and, for the very wallpaper-shy, white and charcoal colorways. Pictured: A detail of The Vale’s Pardus Toile wallpaper in Oxblood.

The Vale (Continued)

Marquardt is inspired by botanical sketches interpreted with a modern, fresh attitude. Her Dahling pattern of dahlias and peonies (pictured above in Haze) evokes the techniques of photographer Man Ray, and each flower is taken from an original illustration of Chelsea Flower Show blooms. (
