We love the renewed interest in the flora and fauna-based textile designs of William Morris who was at the forefront of the Pre-Raphaelite and Arts & Crafts movements. His printing techniques were revolutionary. The patterned wall is the most iconic style statement of this look so start with a wallpaper.
Rather than slavishly copying the historical Arts & Crafts style, give it a rustic or shabby chic twist. Use these very traditional fabrics imaginatively on retro-style stool tops and for chair slip covers as well as for cushions and curtains. By teaming with an eclectic mix of furniture and accessories, such as vintage trunks, old schoolhouse memorabilia and station clocks, this style will suit a home office, library or hallway.
