In the Rain by Ferm Living is a beautiful wallpaper for children’s nurseries. It’s of beautiful quality being non-woven and almost feels like a fabric.

It features clutches of houses as if they are small villages. Friendly clouds drop warm raindrops (well, they look warm!!) and hand-drawn animals are seen scattered throughout the village. My favourite character has to be the cycling rabbit with a balloon.

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?

Looking for something different for a feature wall in your living room? What about these wallpaper panels by Scandinavian Surface laid horizontally across one wall with a striking paint as a backdrop?  At 280 cm long, that would work on any room that is up to 9.3 feet wide.

Putting wallpaper in your hall is great for adding an atmosphere of formality to your hallway particularly if you create formal symmetry with 2 chairs separated by a small console table or similar as in the picture below with the Horse Trellis wallpaper by Barneby Gates.

The Chairs wallpaper is perfect for a hallway too – the subtle stripe in the design will add height and teamed with a chair placed in front of it – it really is a conversation point too. Placing a chair or console table will protect the wallpaper too from children rubbing by the wall as they run by it – well, I’ve found that to be the case and the wallpaper in my hall is still looking good after 4 years!

The pretty Fayre’s Fair carousel wallpaper by Mini Moderns is now also available in much more striking colours too – a mustard and a vivid ‘lido’.

I love it in the heather and gold and think it is so pretty for a child’s nursery or bedroom. What do you think of the stronger colours?

Have you seen Paperboy’s Spitfires wallpaper yet? Launched at 100% Design in September, this design celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Spitfire aeroplane.

Our children will never get to fly a spitfire but they have plenty of scope to imagine flying one with this wallpaper on their bedroom walls. I think it would be good for dads too – perhaps in their home office!

As you can see, the aeroplanes are drawn in a graffitti style. Available to buy online in four vivid colourways over here.

Tweeting about this ‘body art/wallpaper’ with this beautiful Florence Broadhurst Egrets wallpaper the other day,

Shelley from Scarlet Opus pointed me in the direction of Cecilia Parades for wallpaper /body art with a difference:

I think they are spooky, amazing, beautiful, rather surreal and I can’t help thinking that I’d be sure to feel itchy somewhere just as the photographer wanted to click that camera 😉 What do you think?
