Wallpapers

I have a bit of an aversion to wallpaper. I think this comes from having the most hideous wallpaper on one of our living room walls when I was growing up. Looking at it day after day was enough to put me off wallpapering any of the walls in my own home, but looking at the wallpaper designs by talented UK textile designer Louise Body might just help me overcome my aversion. They're pretty gorgeous...

Pavilion Birds

Holy Cows

Autumn Woods
Birdies

Marneys Lace

I am also enamoured of the wallpapers produced by Porters Paints, many of which have been created by the renown production designer Catherine Martin...

Dandelions

Alphabet City


Passion Flower


Banksia

Beetle


Marigold

Eucalyptus

Sparrows

Lace

If I had to pick a favourite, for me it would be the Marigold design by Porters. Do you have a favourite? Check out the Wallprint and Porters Paints websites for more designs.

These wallpapers are so gorgeous - I can't imagine getting sick of any of them! I'm looking for the perfect wallpaper for my dining room - best to start with a small space! Tracey xx

I would be happy for my entire house to be plastered with wall paper from Catherine Martin's range - she is sheer genius. Testament to that is her guest editor spot in the current issue of Vogue Living, the best one in ages x

In Holland I have ordered some wall paper for our new apartment. Almost the same like your first photo is one I picked for my daughters room, bit brighter perhaps.
Love it!!! XX, Carmie.
