National Wallpaper Week 2015

National Wallpaper Week  is here! Let’s celebrate all that’s fun and fabulous in the world of wallpapering. Do you enjoy wallpapering? I enjoy watching somebody else do it for me, namely my husband! We often wallpaper a feature wall in our rooms, and then match it with a paint for the other walls, but we feel it’s time for a change.

Our lounge is top of our list to transform. We originally went for a very dark wallpaper with cream flowers on our main wall, and a latte coloured paint on the rest of the room. It has served its purpose but now 7 years on it’s time to change. We are tired of the room feeling dark, and we want to brighten it up.Before shot of lounge decorWe have scoured the internet and shops for hours trying to find something we both like, and finally we have found three that we absolutely love! All three of our favourites are by Graham & Brown. We are really excited to begin transforming our room, but we have to choose one of them! I have my favourite though; Glorianna Oyster.

Our lounge is the centre of our family life. We have two young boys an hundreds of toys, but we want to make it feel special, and as glamourous as can be with a family of terrors. We want to add metallics, and throws, an cushions with different textures to enhance the room and really bring it to life. We want to create a room that is welcoming, a room that is light and feels cosy at the same time. Cosy-glam is the look we are going for.

We want to steer away from dark browns like we have previously had, and we want to invest in a new sofa and flooring. We currently have wooden flooring, but we are almost convinced to swap it for a lovely carpet instead ready for a snug winter.

We have  fire place in our lounge too and intend to glam that up with eloquent glass vases, and wooden metallic frames, and of course my beloved candles.

We are really excited, and cannot wait to get started with the planning.
