ABOUT

Originally from Yorkshire, Jessica Osborne is a London based designer who launched her first British traditionally printed wallpaper collection in Autumn 2018.  

Jessica’s love for interiors, colour and textiles goes back to when she was growing up, having spent many years designing prints, textiles and screen printing. After studying Textile Design at Central St. Martins and the University of Leeds, Jessica began her career as a producer and agent at a photographic agency in West London. She managed and worked with some of the country’s leading fashion and still life photographers; producing photo shoots for many luxury brands and top fashion magazines. Jessica then became freelance in 2014 and moved the world of interior styling; working on advertising, commercial and editorial shoots as well as styling events and press shows and is now embarking on the new venture of designing her own interiors collection.

Jessica’s first wallpaper collection is traditionally printed and draws on inspiration from memories and a love of colour. She will soon be launching fabrics and new wallpapers in 2019!

My decision for choosing a British printer was incredibly easy. The first wallpaper machine was invented in the North of England so its makes total sense that the British are renowned for being the best wallpaper printers in the world for incredible quality and craftsmanship . Supporting British manufacturing is very important to me especially when there is such a strong heritage and skill set that have been passed down through generations. Wallpaper has become more and more popular over recent years and it’s great that factories with so much heritage can thrive.

I find the pyschology of colour and pattern fascinating. Bold colours don’t have to be overpowering, if used properly they can really have an incredible effect not only on the room but the way it makes you feel. I wanted to create a collection where I stayed true to what I loved – simple prints using bold colours. Vibrant colours can create such a positive impact in your home. I’m a big fan of maximalism, not by the amount of items that you have in the room but by colour, pattern and texture. It’s like having art work on every centimetre of the room.
