When Schuyler Samperton first burst on the interior design scene – she was known for her inventive use of textiles and textures – she mixed different fabrics, new and vintage, in a way that when blended together with textures, she created a look that was entirely her own.
Over the years, as her popularity grew, Samperton has remained true to her aesthetic. Her interiors are warm and inviting, casual, and totally unique. Recently, when Samperton announced she was designing her own line of fabrics, it came as no surprise – it’s a natural fit and progression for someone as talented as Schuyler is.
The “Schuyler Samperton Textiles” fabrics are hand screened in Switzerland on beautiful linen that comes from Ireland. Samperton says the line was inspired by her own personal collection of textiles that she has amassed over a lifetime – things such as antique Japanese kimonos, remnants of English chintz, vintage Suzanis – and more, all which served as a visual influence when she started to think about designing her own line.
More inspiration came from her family. Her fashionable mother was known for her Indian-style headscarves and this became the starting-off point of the collection – as an homage to her mother. Not to be left out – her father always wore a pocket square, another look which Schuyler incorporated when designing her fabrics.
Before sitting down to draw the patterns, Samperton delved into the history of Indian textiles - and all those disparate images consolidated into what ultimately became “Schuyler Samperton Textiles.”
She strove to create fabrics that are saturated with color, yet still easily blend together. The colors are a bit more modern for today, but are steeped in historical design – such as a vivid blue and white in a nod to Delft. There is an olive green, and a pink and purple inspired by the Ottomans. The fabrics all work together, and will add an exotic and handcrafted quality to any interior. The collection has that unique joie de vie that Samperton is known for.
Here is a vignette using Schuyler Samperton Textiles – showing how they all easily mix together. The fabric on the chairs, Caledonia, is my favorite in the line – it comes in five different colorways.
Caledonia in blue and white – gorgeous!!!
Here is Caledonia in warm blues and pinks, in the Peony colorway.
Caledonia’s colorways, five choices.
This vignette shows different patterns in the blue and white colorway.
Here is Celandine in Azure – I love this fabric!!!
Here it is - Celandine – used on the headboard. I love Celandine mixed with the mint walls. On the bed is another fabric called Overlea in Marine.
And in another colorway, Celandine in Sangria. Love!
Cordoba on the chair with Nellcote on the wall. Nellcote is a great fabric for large expanses, such as sofas or duvets.

TODAY I AM OBSESSED WITH THESE THREE THINGS:
1. I am obsessed with beautiful linens – monogrammed. They are especially beautiful in blue and white!! HERE.
2. Today, I am obsessed with this wallpaper. In blue and pink, red, taupe, and more. The cutest!!! HERE.
3. AND, today I am obsessed with my all time favorite candle because I just ordered it from Amazon and it arrived this morning. Needless to say my house smells WONDERFUL!!! The candle is “Bamboo by NEST Candles.” This is the best scent of any candle and trust me, I have tried them all. OK. It might NOT top Kenneth Turner’s Original Scent Candle (but that’s another story.) Ever since I was first introduced to BAMBOO, I have been truly obsessed!!! Here it is in the 3 wick version, but you can get a single wick too. Just click on the above photo for more information!!
