It's great to work with clients who are willing to step out of their comfort zone and it's even better seeing their faces when that idea comes to fruition. For some reason a lot of people are scared of wallpaper! I try to convince clients to go for maybe just one accent wall with wallpaper.... it really can transform a room.

As you know, I love all things British, especially Farrow & Ball. They have an amazing array of paints and wallpapers. They have been making paint in Dorset, one batch at a time, since 1946 and remains one of only a few companies making a full range of traditional and modern paint finishes of the highest quality. Who could resist painting a wall with such colours called "string", "putty" and "pavilion gray". Their wallpapers are quite unique as they are produced using environmentally friendly water based paints and traditional manufacturing methods. Their patterned wallpapers are block printed and their stripes and stries are trough printed. All wallpapers are made to order.

Here's a few examples:
Their "vermicelli" series is one of my all time favourites:
We're about to install the green version in a client's dining room this month:
