Designer Erin Napier is synonymous with Laurel – the Mississippi city where she renovates historic properties for HGTV's Home Town. Erin and her husband, Ben, have transformed over 50 properties around Laurel to date – but her latest venture sees her impact spread throughout homes far beyond the southern state.
Enter Erin Napier's new wallpaper collection with York Wallcoverings – the Pennsylvania-based wallpaper powerhouse founded in 1895 (Erin does have an admiration for all things rooted in history, after all).
The collection is blooming with beautiful florals, vintage botanicals, and whimsical folk-art inspirations designed to 'lend a personal touch' and build a 'layered, nostalgic home design.' However, aesthetics aside, these wallcoverings come with a practical twist that is perfect for those who are indecisive when it comes to their decorating ideas.
'It's been years in the making, and I'm thrilled to announce my professional quality US-made peel and stick wallpaper collection from York Wallcoverings,' Erin says on her Instagram (opens in new tab).
Yes, the designs are printed on peel-and-stick wallpaper – meaning you can easily remove your chosen pattern and experiment with a new one without harming your walls (or spending too long navigating a fiddly DIY process).
Therefore, you can play with wallpaper trends and various colorways until you find the one that is perfect for your space – safe in the knowledge that all designs are entirely Erin Napier-approved.
'Every design is an homage to heirloom wallpaper patterns of the early 20th century in multiple modern colorways for each that I think you're going to love,' Erin says. 'Do you recognize this pattern I painted for my book jacket based on our girls' nursery curtains?' The print in question is Heirloom Floral (opens in new tab), the chintz-style design seen above.
Naturally, Erin's fans have rushed to share their appreciation for the collection on Instagram – with many observing the collection's similarity to William Morris's famed designs. In a response to a follower who noticed Modern Acanthus' resemblance to the artist, York shared that it 'definitely has a William Morris feel.'
Meanwhile, Erin Napier said that the comparison to William Morris was 'the highest compliment.'
And, if you aren't shopping for wallpaper, you can still invest in a small piece of Erin's Heirloom Floral print by picking up her book (featuring the pattern) below.
