I know, Gentle Readers: I’m late to the party. I only started watching Sex Education recently, but I’m making up for lost time. I love it. (I also love that I’m NOT watching it with my teenagers. As are they.)
Anyhoo, I was delighted to note that I recognized two of the wallpapers in Jean Milburn’s house.
The first is Blackthorn by William Morris.
I’m not usually a William Morris gal, but we just proposed some WM wallpaper to a client, and it is going to look AMAZING!!
The second Sex Education wallpaper is also in Jean Milburn’s house, this time in the bathroom. It’s Cole & Son’s Palm Jungle — colorway Petrol & Lime, which has been discontinued!! Criminal!!
First, we have Farrow & Ball’s Lotus in Rava Roy’s foyer.
This wallpaper is ICONIC. It comes in two sizes — I prefer the large, which is what Rava Roy has — and so many colorways (colourways).
And then we have the one that really stumped me: it took a TikTok viewer to solve the mystery! The wallpaper in Sophie Roy’s bedroom, same apartment as the Lotus wallpaper.
I’d thought it was by Schumacher but couldn’t find it, and then I thought it might be a Cole & Son…but no. The Vale London. And you thought TikTok was a waste of time ;)
