Kate Spade is renowned for contemporary yet quirky designs in her homeware collections. Her company brings bold patterns with colour popping hues that add a classic and modern feel to any living space. She typically concentrates on furnishings, such as cushions, sofas, rugs and even bags and satchels. But now the signature style is being transferred onto our walls, as she debuts her first wallpaper collection.
She has partnered with the infamous fabric and paper experts Kravet, to create some of the most eye-catching prints we have seen this year. The company, who expanded its homeware range last October, decided that wallpaper was the next step, and judging from this collection, we agree.
There are subtle patterns using miniature dots in soft pinks and golds, more iconic styles of zebra stripes, quirky looks with owl prints and crisp, bright shades that just scream feature walls. All the designs encapsulate the company’s signature feel and look.
Kate Spade has indeed taken some of her most well-known, classic prints and shamelessly utilised them for this new wallpaper collection.
“What I love most about our wallpaper collection is that it features iconic prints and patterns, curated from our archives,” President and COO Deborah Lloyd says. “From stripes to dots to owls, it makes an utterly modern, feminine and playful statement in your home.”
Here are some of our favourites:
Beautiful soothing jade leaves hide these red and pink quirky owls who are nestled on the branches of the prettiest tree we’ve ever seen. We love the tiny blossoms in blush pink and green that fill the spaces between the leaves.
A must for any book worm, this cartoon-style book wallpaper features every bibliophile’s classic must-reads. From Jane Eyre, Great Expectations, Hamlet, Gulliver’s Travels to Romeo & Juliet.
CONFETTI DOT SOFT PINK
Perfect for the bedroom or anywhere you want to add a touch of pure luxury or romance. The softest dusky pink is complimented with small golden dots.
Inspired by the brand’s signature motifs such as the owls and bows, this wallpaper features some of our favourite things too. Includes typewriters, pineapples, flamingos, and scissors.
MONA ZEBRA NAVY
Great for a statement piece here, this bold wallpaper would look fabulous as a feature wall in a bedroom or den.
