Wallpaper and out-of-the-box textiles are definitely having a moment. Gone are the garish looks that some of us may remember growing up with during the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s. Just like many trends, they’ve proven they’re here to stay, but with some much-needed modern updates. And, luckily for us, Supply is here to help.

Supply, a female-run fabric-and-wallpaper showroom, is the go-to for Texan designers looking for everything from the wacky to the whimsical. And for Supply co-owner Callie Jenschke, “Supply is a place for someone with every taste.”

Founded in 2015 by Jenschke, along with interior designer Kim West and former accessories designer Kristin Gish, the Austin hub showcases textiles, as well as furniture, rugs, and lighting, from vendors from around the world. And while the Texas capital had a thriving design scene before Supply opened, many designers were forced to look to New York City, Los Angeles, and London to source prints. Thus, the trio decided it was time Austin had a showroom of its own.

“We all felt that Austin could benefit from some of the amazing resources we had at our fingertips while in New York City,” Jenschke recalls.

The Trends

Now that summer is here, Jenschke and her team have noticed trends in the wallpaper and textile world — two in particular.

“[Look out for] funky florals and non-traditional stripes to be popular,” she says.

Jenschke says that using florals and stripes in bold colors is great to brighten up a room for summer, so think a vibrant yellow, sky blue or hint of red in your pattern to add even more life to a space.

Start Small

How does one go about incorporating these fun prints into their homes? Jenschke shares her top tips for everyone — whether you’re a the first-time homeowner, a wary wallpaper virgin, or a refurbishing guru.

“We always say to start in the powder room. It’s the one area in the house that you shouldn’t think too seriously about. It’s also a place to impress and surprise your guests.”

Use Wallpaper or Textiles to Balance a Space

“A funky floral is a great way to modernize a sofa or a dining chair. The non-traditional stripe is the chameleon; It can be used in a traditional bedroom for drapes, to upholster a chaise or side chair in a classic living room, or used on a headboard in an eclectic bedroom to tone down the space.”

While Jenschke describes her personal design aesthetic as earthy, eclectic, and modern, Supply carries a range of wallpapers and textiles to fit an array of tastes.
