Five years ago, Nick and Rachel Cope founded Calico Wallpaper, combining his expertise in interior design with her curiosity as an artist. They spent years studying paint marbling techniques before launching their own line of abstract, nature-inspired patterns on linen and cotton, and have since partnered with of-the-moment designers including Serbian Ana Kraš and Brit Faye Toogood to expand the range. Earlier this year, they launched Cope, a collection of textiles for home in ombré shades, flower patterns, and marble motifs—and, for kids—Peter Rabbit–themed pillows and wallpaper. We’re taken with the fabric yardage, appealing as breezy linen curtains.
