Thank you to all of the talented designers who sent in their work. We were inspired by the range of submissions and loved seeing how each design showcased a Schumacher statement wallcovering. It was difficult to choose from all of the incredible projects. Congratulations to the winners on their outstanding entries:
Touch Interiors – Mosman, Australia
Bronwyn Poole established Touch Interiors, a residential design firm based in Mosman, Australia, in 1998 and continues to serve as the Head Designer and Company Director.
In Poole’s winning design, which she refers to as “The Travellers Sanctuary,” she wanted to create a home for a world traveling couple with an interest in collecting beautiful objects from their adventures. Schumacher’s Imperial Trellis in Trelliage creates the biggest impact in the space and encompasses the bohemian spirit Poole envisioned for this scheme. Also shown is Trina Turk’s Indoor/Outdoor fabric, Tangier Frame Print in Sea Grass.
Renée LeJeune Hallberg
RLH Studio – Minneapolis, Minnesota
Renée LeJeune Hallberg, the Owner and Principal Designer of RLH Studio, believes that having beautiful interiors isn’t enough. It has to also work for her clients’ lifestyles.
For this redesign, Hallberg felt Albero Floreale in Aqua was the perfect wallcovering to bridge the master bath and master bedroom. The wallcovering offers luxury and elegance while at the same time it provides a beautiful spa-like presence. The scale of the flowers enhances the Venetian plastered, barreled ceilings and dictates the accent paint color for the makeup vanity.
Christopher Kennedy, Inc – Palm Springs, California
Since founding his firm, Christopher Kennedy Inc. in 2005, Christopher has emerged as a fresh voice in home furnishings and interior design. Known for his unique brand of luxurious modernism, Kennedy’s work has been published in Architectural Digest, Dwell, LUXE Magazine, and The Los Angeles Times, among others.
For this 1960s modern home in Palm Springs, Christopher Kennedy selected Schumacher’s Chiang Mai Dragon in Aquamarine as a detailed and dramatic backdrop for the guestroom. Known for his fresh approach to glamorous modernism, Kennedy paired the Chiang Mai wallpaper with an oversized Moroccan headboard in lime green and vintage lamps true to the era of the home.
Leland Interiors, Inc – Nashville, Tennessee
Kippie Leland, Owner/Designer of Leland Interiors, worked with her father Ted Leland until his retirement in 1997. She describes her personal style as “a collected look using pieces softened by age, beautiful fabrics, and touches of quality.”
The concept for this master bath was to create a cool oasis, a spa-like retreat for a southern couple. Schumacher’s Ming Cherry Blossom in Aqua perfectly complemented the Imperial Danby marble throughout the bathroom. Additionally, the pattern is reminiscent of the Dogwood Tree that is so prevalent in Nashville.
We hope that you will continue to follow and post on our What’s New Schumacher Blog. More contests to come!
