I am so proud and excited to share with you that my wallpaper collection with A-Street Prints is now officially available! Creating a wallpaper collection has always been a dream of mine, and I am so thrilled with how this first collection turned out. I was also thrilled to work with Brewster, a local company to Massachusetts and long standing pillar in the wallpaper industry. They were so supportive and really let us have full creative control of this line, which is so appreciated. Read more about the inspiration and process for the collection on the A Street Blog.
We worked with artist Rachel Rogers to bring my initial concepts to life (I discovered her when I chose one of her designs for Emma’s birth announcement), and ended up with 8 patterns, all named for people & places that are important to me and my team. As with most of my design work, this collection is rooted in traditional New England classicism, with modern updates to make it more appealing to different design styles.
Here they are!

Oh, how I love this design! Probably my most favorite of the collection. The lily of the valley pattern is based on the old floral wallpapers found in the dorm rooms at Miss Porter’s School, which is a very special place to me and my most formative experience in life. It’s such a classic – at once nostalgic and refreshing. If I had not already wallpapered Emma’s room I would have 100000% used this. Who knew I’d have my OWN line?!?!
The Libby is a small-scale floral block print that isn’t too precious, but keeps it interesting with little details. Perfect for a powder or bedroom. Named after Andrew’s darling grandmother who loved gardening.
An update to a classic, time-tested, designer-favorite ikat pattern, combining painterly stripes and intricate block printing detail. I used the Stone colorway in my gym – it’s the perfect not-too-gray-not-too-beige neutral. Named after the son of my Director of Branding/Marketing (who championed bringing this collection to life).
We all know who inspired THIS one… my own little star. I knew from the get-go I wanted some kind of star paper, but I wanted to vary the size and tone and make sure it had a hand-painted feel. I LOVE the hunter green and neutral versions, which you can’t find elsewhere. This would be especially gorgeous on a ceiling! We were lucky enough to get a few rolls in advance of the launch, and the Henry in Green is now living in Molly’s son’s room, looking so adorable (the trim is painted “Green Smoke” from Farrow & Ball, and is a perfect match). I’m also putting the red version inside Henry’s closet!
This pattern was inspired by both my love for florals and traditional Indian block printed textiles. I wanted it to have a crisp feel, but read as almost a paisley from far away. Named after, and in the room of, Molly’s daughter. I’m particularly in love with the red and pale blue colorway.
Named after my sweet girl, this pattern is both sweet and simple. I absolutely love the tiny details and loose feel of each bow (you’ll notice there are a few different versions within the pattern). I’m using the stone colorway inside Emma’s closet, which is going to pair SO amazing with her Bowood wallpapaper.
Creating this one was so fun! Artist Rachel Rogers painstakingly hand-painted this Chinoiserie design, featuring subtle nods to my life, including the state flowers of Massachusetts and Connecticut (Mayflower and Mountain Laurel), tiny ladybugs (the Massachusetts state insect, did ya know?) and birds in my favorite shades of blue. This would coordinate with green, blue, burnt oranges and neutrals – lots of options.
This pattern is an homage to my mother, who is an amazing gardener and has the most insane clematis at her home. We changed the color way to blue and green to appease the masses (purple being a bit narrow in appeal). But the painterly, organic shapes and pattern are just so pretty.
