As some of you will already know, today is the start of International Wallpaper Week. As you may also know, wallpaper is my passion and so i thought i would spend the week sharing my current favourite papers. I've limited myself to 5 a day, with a different theme each day.
Monday's theme is 'Wow Factor' and these really give 100% WOW!
Who doesn't love a dark shade of blue at the minute? This is a great choice from Scion for those who love the trend, but don't want to cover their walls in complete darkness. It is called 'Kimi' and does come in other variations. It is available to buy at Wallpaper Direct.
Now this one really is perfect for this time of year! I would love this as a feature in my living room with the fire on. I would colour match the yellow/orange/red somewhere in the middle to paint the other walls and I don't think I would want to leave! This is 'Angeliki' from The Clarissa Hulse Collection for Harlequin. Available from Wallpaper Direct.
Yes, more blue, I just can't help but be drawn in by it. To be honest, this picture does not do the wallpaper justice. I have a sample of this and it is luxuriously wonderful! It is by Matthew Williamson for Osborne & Little and is simply named 'Peacock'. This is the Jade/Midnight Blue version, but others are available from Wallpaper Direct.
This is a hand-printed wallpaper by Juju, a company based in the U.S.A. This just caught my eye one day whilst browsing the internet and I fell in love straight away. It is so simple, yet so perfect. The matte finished charcoal background and the metallic gold pattern balance wonderfully well. They ship to the U.K often and will be willing to help with any queries. Available at Juju Papers.
Wallpaper and cats. My two favourite things in life. They are brought together here by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen for Graham & Brown.
It is a flock finished wallpaper which gives a truly stunning effect. It is also on offer for Wallpaper Week. Buy 'Roccocat' direct from Graham & Brown.
What do you think? I'd be interested to see your Wow Factor Wallpapers.
Please visit tomorrow for another 5 a day :-)
