Schumacher and Christopher Peacock Paint launch their collaboration with a collection of coordinated wallcoverings and paints. Schumacher’s Greenhouse Collection, a classic book of lush garden-inspired wallcoverings, is paired with premium paints from Christopher Peacock’s exquisite Collection No. 1.

Reminiscent of timeless English colors, each of the selected shades was determined by its relationship to the gentle sun washed colorways in the Greenhouse Collection. Beautifully crafted with the textured look of traditional surface printing methods, Schumacher’s latest wallcoverings feature versatile prints that bring beauty to a wide range of interiors. The coordinated collections are available in Schumacher’s 16 corporate showrooms and with its more than 2000 affiliates.

The gorgeous palette represents a well balanced yet subtle approach to the use of color in design today. The distinctive color system is quintessentially Peacock and is characteristic of his signature style of decorating which includes a clean, neutral palette with pops of strong color.
