Graham & Brown, those awfully nice purveyors of wallpaper, have just released a new collection curated by the doyenne of interiors journalists Barbara Chandler. She worked with the company for a year to select designers from a variety of fields, including textiles, illustrations, street art and fashion.

They have created a collection of 16 new papers, some of which are pictured here, so that you can buy high end designer wallpaper for just £26 a roll.

Barbara said: “Making such new talent affordable and accessible is a truly bold step for Graham & Brown. It is so exciting that very special designs will be offered at £26 a roll, making boutique wallpaper by an atelier of handpicked designers available to everyone.

“I love the democracy of it.”

Barbara has been writing about home design and decorating for 35 years and says she still gets an adrenaline rush when she spots a new talent. She felt that Britain leads the way in surface pattern design but that only a fraction of it was finding its way to market.

Such is her influence that when Barbara speaks, Graham & Brown listen and they teamed up. The collection is varied and ranges from nature and graffiti to abstract and fantasy.

I’m finding it really hard to choose a favourite. I love Paradisi and Feathers but foxgloves are my favourite flowers …

Which ones do you like?
