    Tile-illusion wallpaper is so hot right now!

    These wallpapers have just landed in my inbox from Graham & Green. Apologies though, as they’re not the cheapest (£160 a roll!) but you do get 10 metres of of the stuff. You could just use one roll to revamp a little corner of your home – line some kitchen cupboards or use in an alcove?  In the end, it will work out cheaper than actual tiles and will go up in a flash, too…

    Loose Petals reminds me of hand-painted Portuguese tiles and the abstract After Lowry design is inspired by L.S. Lowry’s paintings of  urban landscapes. What do you think?

    Sneak peek: stunning textiles and wallpaper

    Designer Louise Body is launching a fresh new collection of wallpapers and fabrics this month called Peggy. The geometric and abstract patterns are inspired by 20th century artists who produced simple, hand blocked prints. Made up of four wallpaper designs and nine printed fabrics, they have been designed to work in harmony together within the same scheme. What do you think of the lovely muted colour palette?

    I love the photography as it’s full of application ideas! Upholster the seat pad on a vintage stool, make a display with framed wallpaper, use below a picture rail or make into cushions. The designs are stunning and would work well in a bedroom, living room or dining room. Launching officially at Maison et Objet in Paris this month you will be able to buy from her website shortly.

    Play with paint

    A quick sneak peek brought to you today from Laura Ashley. A completely new concept for them, they have taken three of their best-selling designs – Aviary Garden, Salcombe and Bella Butterfly to create these fab patterned paint rollers. It works in the same way as a standard paint roller but the embossed pattern creates a pretty stencil effect…

    At £30 this is an economic wallpaper alternative. Ok, it may require a little practice, especially if you’re planning on doing a full wall. Alternatively, you could create a simple border around a window or door frame, use on fabric or customise a piece of furniture. Look out for this in the New Year!
