Annie Allison creates luxurious wallcoverings and fabrics in her signature style from drawings using pen and ink. Her patterns are inspired by the natural environment and bring together a unique blend of colour, texture and design.
Her style is always inspired by nature and her love for the outdoors. Using a palette of earthy hues and fresh tones, there is a perfect colour combination to suit all tastes.
Bringing the outside in is Annie’s philosophy, and her influence comes from her favourite places and memories from her time spent on the north Norfolk coast and the Rutland countryside, where she now lives with her husband and two daughters.
By merging her passion for interiors with her love of illustration, her style is perfectly suited to creating beautiful wallpapers and fabrics which have a very tactile, earthy feel that translate beautifully in both commercial and residential settings.
“As a small independent business, I am determined to not compromise on quality and offer a premium product that not only supports the UK economy but also takes the environmental impact of what I’m offering into account as well. My designs are an investment that has longevity at its core – it is not a throwaway product but something that I hope my clients will treasure for years to come.”
Firstly, the core wallpaper and fabric collections are all manufactured in the UK. Being a small, independent business herself, Annie recognises the need to support UK based enterprises. In the few instances when products are made abroad, it is with an Artisan specialism and where local families and communities are being supported through their trade, such as her Crewel embroidered Fabric collection made in Kashmir.
All Annie Allison Design wallpapers and fabrics are made to a high quality using natural, environmentally friendly materials where possible to create a luxury interiors product, which has a premium look and feel, while also to create something that lasts. Annie’s designs are created to be timeless, with the aim that her client’s look will last for decades rather than just a seasonal trend.
Annie Allison’s fabrics and wallpapers are all made from natural fibres to give you peace of mind that the materials you bring into your home are as sustainable as possible. Our packaging is always chosen with the environment in mind, with as little wastage as possible, and even our Interior Design pattern books are made to be reusable rather than having to be thrown away when new collections are added.
Annie’s first project was an image of Minna, a wirehaired terrier, which was used to create a highly personal wallpaper for a boot room. A commission for a number of individually designed bedrooms for a boutique hotel on the Norfolk coast quickly followed in addition to another country hotel in Rutland. Finding her niche, Annie has now created her own wallpaper collection and more recently, a fabric Collection in her unique signature style.
