In recent years wallpaper has come back into vogue in big way, whether you decide to select a traditional design created using hand blocked printing or make a bold statement with a contemporary graphic print, wallpaper is the easiest way to inject personality into your walls. There are certain tips to consider when choosing your design though, so with any design project you need to analyse your space carefully before you make your purchase.
Cole and Son have some amazing large scale bold designs, if you are fortunate to have high ceilings and generous room proportions large bold prints work well as you can really make the most out of the large pattern repeats.

If you are working with a smaller surface area, such as a new build apartment in central london which may have low ceilings and perhaps lack character, textured wallpapers with smaller less formal patterns can work really well. Erica Wakerly has designed a great collection of contemporary designs, light bounces off this metallic wallpaper so the design enhances the quality of light and space so perfect for a smaller room.

The detail that has been created on the butterflies by this Glasgow based company Timorous Beasties (great name) is truly stunning, it is £240 per roll so certainly a design you would want to enjoy for a while.
