The sadly, recently deceased, Jocasta Innes led the revolution with all her crazy paint techniques (what Jacasta couldn’t do with a sponge, wasn’t worth doing) and our homes were transformed with stencilling, stippling, stripping and scumbling, in eye-watering shades of sunshine-yellows and ultra-marines.
Thankfully the rebellious faze is over and the love affair with wallpaper is well and truly, ‘back on’! Over the previous five years, the number of beautiful papers has exploded and not only the range of designs but also the textures and materials that papers are now able to imitate.
If you’ve got the wallet for it, it’s easy to spend several hundreds of pounds per roll but there are also many fabulous mid-range and even budget papers out there.
One of my current favourites is this quirky Flamingo paper from Imani Renae (£50 per roll):
Instant glamour at £95 per roll, I would love to adorn my own bathroom, dressing room or dining room in this…if only I had more walls.
