Swarovski Element‘s bejewelled wallpaper collection takes luxury wall coverings to a whole new level of bling. The line was created in partnership with Karen Beauchamp, design director of Britain’s Cole & Son, a 136-year-old company that still prints its papers by hand.

Each of the nine patterns is embedded with the Swarovski’s famed crystals. Beauchamp went with vintage Edwardian styles, like duotone Harlequin diamonds, giant paisley, bold vertical stripes and damask. Along with delicate lines of crystals applied directly onto the papers to catch the light, the collection includes other luxurious touches and accents, such as velvet flocking, mirrored foil, and a layered ink effect that resembles metallic leather. And two of the patterns – Plume and Feather Palace – feature sumptuous feather motifs accentuated with Xilion crystals and further embellished with Cabachon pearls and metallics.
