If you are looking for a wallpaper for a nursery that will last the test of time and be neither blue nor pink, masculine nor feminine and yet be perfect for a small child’s bedroom or nursery, I love  Fayre’s Fair by Mini Moderns with its old-fashioned and traditional carousel horses.

This charming carousel design is also available in a calm heather and a vibrant teal.

We’re going for a Parisien theme this week – as there seems to be a move towards designs that incorporate city landmarks, we thought we’d bring you a favourite wallpaper each day that features Paris and then we’ll move onto another city.

Should you find a wallpaper that features Dublin or any other Irish city, do let me know 🙂

Un Dimanche A Paris – a Sunday in Paris is a really pretty wallpaper by Famille Summerbelle and is available in silver/mustard and red/blue.

There is something really charming and childlike, almost Mary Poppinsesque about this design, I love the figure with the dog and the man on the bike, the glamourous couple walking their dog, the carousel and of course, the iconic structure of the Eiffel Tower. Gorgeous.

What room would you put this wallpaper in? I’d put it in a child’s bedroom or a downstairs loo or a kitchen.

You can purchase Un Dimanche A Paris wallpaper online right here.

I’m loving this picture of Cole and Son’s Cow Parsley wallpaper in yellow – it looks so vibrant and yet not overwhelming here, quite restful too as it is within a panel and teamed with white.  I have to admit that yellow is not a colour that I have used much in my home despite it being quite sunny.

Isn’t it really restful?  Other yellow wallpapers I like include these by Miss Print : Cotton Tree and Saplings.

Do you have yellow wallpaper in your home?  I love it teamed with white – I think it would put one in a permanently good and positive mood!

Do you struggle to find a paint colour to co-ordinate with your wallpaper on the feature wall?  Here’s one suggestion for how to do it.

Tow or three strips of wallpaper are used to centralise the console table and create a focal point (all done with one roll of wallpaper). To select a co-ordinating colour, you can see that they have chosen the silvery grey in the wallpaper as the paint colour for the rest of the walls. Most paint shops now provide a matching service so would be able to mix a paint colour for you.

The yellow chaise then becomes quite striking against the grey paint as does the cushion on the opposite side. Symmetry is created with the matching lamps and candleholders and the pictures framing the wallpaper pieces. As the furniture doesn’t match, it makes the whole arrangement more informal but yet quite orderly.
