Inspired by the relaxed East Coast lifestyle, Lexington Company have designed a range of classic New England style wallpapers for Boråstapeter, all sure to give your home an authentic Americana vibe
A blue-striped work shirt, casual linens, sun-bleached woods, sun, sea, sand and famous literary figures were all sources of inspiration for this New England collection of wallpaper designs.
The new collection comprises nine wallpaper designs, all named after famous American authors who lived and wrote in the vicinity of New England. They include Mark Twain, who wrote much-loved Adventures of Huckleberry Finn; Harriet Beecher Stowe the author of anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and Emily Dickinson, one of America’s leading poets.
Classic New England style is a distinguished mix of stripes and check, with floral and coastal accents. The colour palette is a fusion of sandy neutrals, natural linen beige, navy blue and shell pinks – all perfect colours for creating a laid-back vibe, and the key to this easy-to-live-with look.
