MORRIS & CO x H+M

“Think first of the walls, for they are that which make your house a home.” –  William Morris (1832 – 1896)

If you’ve never heard of William Morris, below is a brief history lesson. A central figure in the Arts & Crafts movement William Morris wallpaper, fabric and his iconic prints live on today through an extensive archive managed by Style Library.

Morris & Co. / Style Library recently partnered with clothing giant H+M to launch a line of H+M clothing with a selection of iconic Morris prints. I was SO EXCITED when I was contacted to be a part of the launch! I have forever loved the romantic folk art quality of W. Morris prints AND to be able to wear them – how cool.

I chose the Trumpet Sleeve Dress based on original William Morris wallpaper print Pimpernel. I love so many pieces from the collection and they are very affordable! This dress retails for $34.99. As a side note, I think H+M does an amazing job with prints. I wore an another H+M dress I found at a consignment store for our maternity photos, which got SO many positive comments! I’d never seen anything like it before.

Here’s the Trumpet Sleeve Dress based on William Morris wallpaper – Pimpernel

I had fun pretending to be a model with photographer Heather Talbert (who took all these photos!). We took a quick trip to Style Library’s Chicago showroom (they are a British company) and looked at some of the actual William Morris wallpaper and fabrics currently available. I may just have an interior collaboration with Morris & Co. coming up as well! I will share more about that before the holidays. Needless to say, the Pimpernel pattern has really captured me. It’s incredibly detailed and timeless, yet feels bold and modern at the same time.

Stay tuned for more on this collaboration with Style Library and in the meantime – do  yourself a favor and get something from this new H+M COLLECTION.
