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?

Have you got low ceilings in your home? Do you want to make the room appear taller?

One of the easiest ways to achieve this is to paint the ceiling a light colour and include vertical stripes on the walls. You can paint vertical stripes but unless it’s a child’s bedroom, this might not look the best which is why I’m suggesting wallpaper.

Wallpaper with a stripe

However, wallpaper with rigid stripes can look quite regimental, what I like are wallpapers with a very very subtle vertical stripe and one of my favourites has to be the Chairs design by Barneby Gates.

Featuring a number of chairs in different styles along a vertical line and separated by a rope design, the chairs are placed rather haphazardly but the double stripe still works. Available in two colourways, this is my new favourite ‘Striped’ wallpaper.

Fancy a cup of tea and some cucumber sandwiches. This new ‘Afternoon Tea’ wallpaper design by Yukari Sweeney design is very very pretty and is perfect for a dining room. Coming in four colourways – Blueberries, Cocoa, zesty Orange and soft Soda, there’s a colour to suit every mood you might like to create:

Isn’t the design pretty? I’m loving the shapes of the teapot and teacup and the jelly or blancmange.

It’s not an inexpensive wallpaper at £150/€195/$295 per roll but it is exquisite.  The quality is so good, it almost looks handpainted.  You can check out the other colourways here as well as buying this beautiful wallpaper online.

English Robin Wallpaper – there are so many bird wallpapers available now that it can be hard to choose just one to write about.  I’m actually slightly spooked by birds in fabric and wallpaper – it is almost like I feel they will come to life and fly around the room. When a friend purchased a bird fabric for her bedroom, I just looked at her in amazement, knowing that I’d never be able to sleep with bird fabric fluttering in a summer breeze. I’m not afraid of actual bird though so it’s all a bit bizarre. Maybe I saw ‘The Birds’ at a young age!

English Robin - Barneby Gates

English Robin by Barneby Gates is a lovely design, I love the berries on the branches and the robins sitting sedately. I’m not so sure about the larger robin flying but that’s my weird hangup I think!

What rooms would you choose for these wallpapers?  I’d love the cream one in a bedroom if I didn’t have a hangup about birds and the jade in a hall or study.  It would look fabulous in a boutique or a salon too.  You can buy both these bird wallpapers online right here.

Feeling superstitious?  This new wallpaper design ‘Lucky Charms’ by Barneby Gates features symbols of fortune arranged in a classical urn formation.  So if you are the type of person who throws salt over your shoulder if it spills on the table, you know that symbols such as the the horse-shoes, crossed keys, acorns and ladybirds (amongst others) are sure to bring luck to any home!

Plus aren’t they a stylish design?  Available in two colours, I would particularly love the green in a study or library or hall.  I like the metallic effect too and how it would alter the colour of the wallpaper as the light changes during the day.

You can buy wallpaper online from Garrendenny Lane Interiors, including, of course, this new Lucky Charms wallpaper design.

If you are looking for a wonderfully restful wallpaper, perhaps a wallpaper for a library or a music room or a room where you like to relax, then I think the Dragonfly Wallpaper by Barneby Gates in Apple Green is perfect.

The Dragonfly wallpaper is also available in Pewter which is really striking, more suited to a study or hallway I think. The design incorporates the dragonfly in its adult phase along with water lilies and is really relaxing and soothing.
