If you’re a fan of Sarah Jessica Parker and her iconic character Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City, you’re in for a treat. The actress has recently launched her own wallpaper line in collaboration with her longtime interior designer and co-creative director of Wallshoppe, Eric Hughes. The collection, called Sarah Jessica Parker & Wallshoppe, features 15 prints in 193 variations that are sure to add a touch of style and personality to any space.
As a longtime friend and design partner, Hughes understands Parker’s unique design sensibility. He describes her style as “specific to her in the most beautiful way” and credits her eye for detail and personal style as the inspiration behind the collection. From playful plaids to refined florals to bold graphics, the wallpaper line captures the essence of “Sarah Jessica” and offers a range of options for every taste.
The collaboration between Parker and Hughes is the result of a 35-year friendship that began when Parker hired Hughes to decorate her home on Long Island. Since then, Hughes has become a renowned interior designer with an impressive portfolio of high-profile commissions. The idea of creating a wallpaper collection came about during the Covid lockdown when Hughes was redesigning Parker’s husband’s home in New York’s West Village.
The collection evolved organically as Parker and Hughes bounced ideas off each other, constantly refining and perfecting the designs. Parker’s attention to detail and unwavering commitment to finding the perfect design and color resulted in a collection that both she and Hughes are proud of.
One of the highlights of the collection is the iconic teal-carnation wallpaper that made its debut in Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment in the And Just Like That sequel. The bold floral pattern adds a touch of drama and elegance to any space, and its larger-than-life scale makes a statement like no other.
In addition to floral patterns, the collection also features a twist on everyday objects like books and bells. Parker’s love for simplicity and functionality is translated into these designs, adding charm and humor to the wallpaper collection. The vibrant colorways, including luminous magenta and rich teal peacock, breathe life into these familiar objects and encourage users to embrace bold color choices.
The wallpaper is sustainably printed in Los Angeles and is available in traditional, removable, and kraft options. Parker hopes that the range of application options will inspire people to think creatively and explore new ways of using color in their spaces. She wants to break the perception that wallpaper is only for a select few and showcase that it is a product for everybody.
If you’re a fan of Sarah Jessica Parker’s unique sense of style and want to bring a touch of her aesthetic into your home, be sure to check out the Sarah Jessica Parker & Wallshoppe wallpaper collection. Transform your walls into works of art and add a touch of Carrie Bradshaw’s boldness and elegance to your space.
