It can be tricky to know where to start when it comes to choosing wallpaper for your home because there’s so much to consider – colour scheme, texture, backing paper, cost… so we’ve created a guide to wallpaper for every budget and taste. Featuring a range of popular wallpaper designers and retailers at all price points you’ll soon be on course to creating your dream home!
First off we are looking at the creme-de-la-creme of wallpaper, with designer Matthew Williamson. You might be aware of Matthew’s background in the fashion world, where he’s renowned for mixing bold prints, patterns and colour schemes to, in his own words, “Make women feel like peacocks.” We love that he’s clearly carried this philosophy over from fashion to home decor, with a range of decadent and bold wallpaper designs that have the power to transform your everyday home into a vibrant work of art.
Our Pick: Purple Ceramica features photographs of vintage plates bought in Portobello and Kempton, London set against a textile-inspired background.
In 1946, Harold Graham and Henry Brown turned a shared dream of brightening up people’s homes into Graham & Brown Wallpaper – one of the most respected wallpaper companies in the world. The company was hugely successful, and they paved the way in new wallpaper technology – most notably the Superfresco brand.
Superfresco wallpaper is easy to hang, can be painted and washed, and is just as popular today as when they introduced it 35 years ago – which makes it the perfect choice for the reluctant DIYer who wants to hang and run!
There are hundreds of designs to choose from, ranging from traditional and understated (White & Silver Boutique Lucia) to outrageous tropical psychedelic delights such as Ubud Mayhem. Graham & Brown also often bring in celebrities to design exclusive papers – Brian Eno and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen have delivered some wonderful creations in recent times.
Our Pick: Rose Gold Reflections Geometric takes the recent trend for rose gold and sits it seamlessly within a traditional geometric design.
Just because you’re on a lower budget doesn’t mean your home decor has to suffer, thanks to this collection from Wilkinsons, which packs a punch without breaking the bank.
With prices between six and thirteen quid a roll, there’s a bargain for every budget! The collection includes a small but lovely range of designs including a bold stripe, damasc, floral, geometric and even tartan!
Our Pick: Cheese Plant Charcoal and Gold is a stunning paper with a botanical design with gold embellishments.
