Wallpaper time

The walls of most of the rooms in our home are painted white, giving a feeling of bright, light and space.  Occasionally though I come across wallpaper I just have to find a place for.  This happened several years ago when I found rolls of Laura Ashley Summer Palace in a sale bin.  My hubby wasn’t sure about the bright vibrant pink birds, but I loved it and just knew it would work with all the white.  We used it in the hallway and painted the stairs pink to match, never failing to get comments from visitors..

Its been up for about 5 yrs now and is looking a little tired so I thought I’d look for something equally stunning to replace it.   Because this is a feature wall as you walk into the house and only needs a few rolls of paper, I can afford to spend a little extra on something really special which will transform the space but not blow the budget.  This is always a good idea if you want to introduce some pattern or colour into a room without spending a fortune.

I love this Mrs Peel  by Fired Earth 

Or how about a game of Mini Moderns Backgammon in Mustard from John Lewis

Love this Mini moderns “Do you live in a town? ” 

Subtle but beautiful Sanderson Squirrel and a dove

This is my favourite at the moment  Marimekko Ystavat Wallpaper in grey

I’ll let you know what we decide on.

    Love your wallpaper as it is and the stars are amazing. If I had to choose one of the wallpapers I would go for the backgammon one.Sarah x
