When Joanna Gaines visited York Wallcoverings’ historic headquarters in York, PA to create the first of two new collections, the synergy between America’s oldest and largest wallcovering company and America’s favorite home remodeler was palpable. Here’s what Joanna had to say about their partnership:

The Collection
“Wallpaper is a tool I use in my clients’ homes to help set their space apart. The wallpaper line is consistent with the look and feel of my design style. One of my #1 things was to make sure my line was easy to install. I’m happy to say it is!”

Decorating with Wallpaper
“For me and Chip, as renovators, we run into old wallpaper all the time, and the nightmare of removing it is something we deal with constantly. When I heard that York’s Sure Strip™ is easy to put up and take down, I was really excited. So in five years, when you’re ready to change things up, there won’t be any scraping or peeling. These beautiful coverings are not only stress-free, they are inspired by the past and create the feeling of home.”

The Design Process
“I loved going to York, looking through their archives and seeing wallpaper from over a hundred years ago. This really inspired me for the designs that we created. I want them to stand the test of time, and starting in York’s archives was definitely a big push in the right direction.”

Wallpaper Craftsmanship
“It was fascinating learning the different techniques; how it’s all made and the history of different patterns. I love that this art form is making a comeback.”

York, PA History
“I immediately fell in love with this place’s rich history. While we were in town, the Saucer Magnolia trees were in full bloom and the weather was perfect. It was dreamy!”
