Schumacher’s Summer Collection: Nautilus

In previous articles we’ve gone over blue and white textiles and nautical themes and how you should apply them.

In today’s article we’re going to be discussing and reviewing some of our favorite new prints and recolors of existing patterns from Schumacher’s new Nautilus collection.

This collection is definitely ocean and nautical inspired, but in tasteful modern applications that don’t leave you feeling like you’re in a cheap beach shack.

schumacher great barrier reef
Great Barrier Reef – 3 New Colors

Schumacher’s coral inspired print ‘Great Barrier Reef’ has three lively new color ways. The original three colors were a bit more muted and neutral, making these primary color ways pop.

The gold and pink coral prints hold true to natural coloration of exotic coral you’d find out in the wild. Thanks to coral’s natural formations, they make for awesome abstract wallcovering or upholstery.

Some of these prints are brand new so they aren’t on our site yet, but we can still help you shop them. 

schumacher palmetto beach embroidery blue
Palmetto Beach Embroidery – Blue

For a simplistic fun Summer print, we heavily gravitated towards the ‘Palmetto Beach Embroidery’ in the blue color way. Something about these cute cartoon depictions of assorted palm trees is very appealing.

All the leafage is highlighted in a deep royal blue that gives the print some unpredictability and fun that any design moment could use for a little spice.

coralline by schumacher
Coralline by Schumacher

This last print ‘Coralline’ by Schumacher is an ode to the classic nautical stripes and rope motif that we’ve all seen millions of times.

What makes this print a little different is the attention to detail. Each column or stripe in this pattern is made of beautiful detailed swirls that remind us of the ocean.

In between is an intersecting imperfect rope detail that creates some nice natural lines because the formations it creates intersecting are not perfect, but differentiating.

Black and White Done Right

Black is the darkest color, the result of the absence or complete absorption of visible light, while white is the opposite of black, it is a collection of all colors of light, resulting in what we know as white. The power of these two colors presented together is an extremely high contrast combination. However, due to the high contrast, the colors provide balance to each other.

We’ve seen through out time many applications such as the yin-yang symbol representing the balance of light and dark. It’s said that “opposites attract.” To put it another way: contrast creates completion. The convergence of black and white (more so than many other color combinations) is an example of how two divergent colors communicate more powerfully together than they do on their own.

Which is exactly why we’ve compiled some extraordinary black and white textiles from our collections that will help your design moments be distinct.

ROBERT ALLEN - Phantom Manor
ROBERT ALLEN – Phantom Manor

The first of our four fabrics we’ll be discussing is the Robert Allen textile: Phantom Manor. This pattern depicts some wild flowers scattered through out the print, leaving small white areas of negative space in between to relieve the eye. The majority of the flower’s form is also white, to ensure this print isn’t too dark. The black tipped petals overlapping each other on the flowers creates some nice geometric eye-candy. We love this textile for an outdoor upholstery moment, or a fun way to add some outdoor accent to a traditional indoors space such as the living room or foyer. 

Eye Catching Blue and White Fabric Choices

blue and white textiles

Hello there, and Happy Monday from L.A. Design Concepts! Today we’re going to be discussing some fun and modern patterns designed in one of time’s most tried and true color combinations: blue and white.

Let’s face it, who hasn’t seen a simple blue and white striped ‘nautical’ inspired print? It’s an effective classic done many times before. Since these colors work so well together, we’d like to highlight some great pattern applications that stray away from the ordinary and help your design moment truly stand out from the rest.

To start things off we’re going to break down each of these less traditional blue and white pattern choices starting from top left, and heading downward.

VICTORIA HAGAN - Summer Square - Indigo / Periwinkle
VICTORIA HAGAN – Summer Square – Indigo / Periwinkle

This Victoria Hagan textile, “Summer Square” is great for a couple different reasons. This pattern plays with circle and square geometric hollow shapes differentiating from a darker blue and a softer sky blue and is arranged in a checkerboard style that draws your eye all over it. Due to the hollow shapes, it isn’t too harsh to look at, and the use of negative white space makes the entire pattern more relaxing and fun. It gives off a retro geometric feel that is playful and appealing.

Our Osborne & Little Spring textile Top Picks

Spring has definitely already sprung, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late embrace the mood of the season. We’ve chosen some of our favorite textiles / fabrics / wallpapers from Osborne and Little collection.  All of these textiles can be used as wallpaper when paper-backed, so if you’re not upholstering for a project, you could transform that washroom into a mid-Spring night’s dream. For our inspiration we drew from different shades and hues of raspberry. As well as bold geometric patterns that can define a new beginning for anyone looking for that fresh start at this point in the year.

osborne and little japonerie

Our first pick is Osborne & Little’s ‘Japonerie’. Would you even be able to consider this a Spring textile top picks list without a floral? Of course not. However, we chose not to go to the obvious picks of lilies, daffodils,  or your typical rose print. This Asian inspired floral print features soft clusters of flowers amidst light wood branches.

osborne and little japonerie
Here is an image of the sapphire ‘Japonerie’ as a decorative cushion, and paper-backed as wallpaper. The combination of the light grey neutrals and the sapphire floral really just looks stunning.

The patches of floral differentiating in size draws your eye all over the print, not leaving any room for a single dull moment. The gray beige backdrop really makes the flowers pop, and the white crane flying among the trees is an elegant detail we’re obsessed with. Available in 3 other color-ways : sapphire, cyan, and burnt orange so you don’t have to compromise.
