What is it about wallpaper that makes a room feel special, feel loved in, turns a house into a home?
There are some rooms that lend themselves more to wallpaper than others I think, and by that I mean, wallpaper can really transform them.
I love wallpaper in ‘good’ sitting rooms. I think wallpaper can make a room that isn’t used that often, feel really cosy and comfortable rather than feeling rather bare and cold. I detest rooms that feel cold, yes, a warm colour in paint can warm them up but you can’t beat a wallpaper that fits the look of the room for adding character and comfort.
I often think that downstairs loos can be a tad bare too. Often quite small, there is usually just room for the toilet and a small sink, perhaps a small bin on the floor. Wallpaper doesn’t take up any room! I’ve found that the ‘Un Dimanche A Paris’ to be a really popular wallpaper for the smallest room in the house - people like it as it is stylish, quirky, fun, brightly coloured and it isn’t too expensive either.

Master Bedroom – wallpaper on the feature wall behind the bed definitely adds something to the main bedroom – be it drama, cosiness, more colour, more interest or perhaps all of the above. The only thing I don’t like about wallpaper in the bedroom is if it matches the curtains – I prefer designs that co-ordinate rather than match exactly.
What do you think? Do you think that wallpaper makes some rooms that bit more special and homely?
