A Match Made in Fabric Heaven
Story and photography courtesy of Teil Duncan x Erika M. Powell
With a shared love of color, texture, and pattern, artist Teil Duncan and textile and interior designer Erika M. Powell naturally found their way into a collaboration that captures their playful sensibilities. Their appreciation of the coast—a shared subject focus of each artist—is celebrated through this collection of beach scenes and coordinating patterns, first painted by Duncan and then transformed into textiles by Powell.
Powell and her team coordinated closely with Duncan to bring her exuberant, iconic artwork into the home in the form of colorful, 100-percent linen textiles. The collection includes nine exclusive prints; three are based on Duncan’s iconic beach scene watercolor paintings, and each of those has two coordinating patterned fabrics “to make mixing and matching a breeze,” says Powell.

With summery names and inspirations, such as Dragon Fruit, Berry Beach, and Honeydew Shark Bite, these bold fabrics are perfect for homes on the coast or those who wish to evoke endless summer all year long from any corner of the globe. Each pattern is also offered as a wallcovering on grasscloth and can be specially ordered on traditional wallpaper or indoor-outdoor fabric.
It’s possible this collection could instantly brighten your space this season and sate your island wanderlust in one stroke—bon voyage!
