We’ve talked about Damask patterns on the blog before but the new ones from Cole & Son in their latest wallpaper collection, Mariinsky Damask, are stunning. I think it’s wonderful when companies take something old like a Damask pattern and breathe new life into it and bring it into the 21st century with bright colors and metallics. Cole & Son also have a wonderful tile pattern in this collection as well as some stripes. I can totally see these patterns being used in a dramatic space, whether it’s a powder bath, a dining room or even a bedroom. I also love to use old patterns like Damask and pair them with contemporary furniture and art, the juxtaposition of an old pattern in a bold color with current furniture and accessories creates beautiful tension and beautiful rooms. Here’s a sampling of the new patterns available from Cole & Son, to see all their beautiful papers visit their website. Enjoy!!!

Balabina is named for a Russian ballerina, definitely has an old world feel to it.

This wall is a combination of two papers, but I want to focus on the Antique Mirror pattern on the top.

Stravinsky combines a traditional Damask pattern with a tile layout and an aged patina for a beautiful effect.

Pushkin takes its inspiration from Persian rugs with bright Asian inspired colors, shapes, and motifs.
