As you know I can never resist a good wallpaper and this, from custhom, is a good wallpaper. It’s made in Britain and handfinished, but perhaps the best thing about it is that the pattern is non-repeating.

the wallpaper is available from cavalierofinn and costs £35 a metre

This makes it much easier to hang and should avoid number one of the rules of hanging wallpaper . But if you can’t face hanging it yourself (either with or without a spouse) then it also looks great framed.

The metallic version also comes in pewter and matt gold and there is a non-metallic one made up of warms greys, black and mustard.

All these are available from Cavalier O Finn where there are all sorts of lovely things to browse around.

If you fancy some more fabulous wallpaper then what about this Palladian? It comes in a strong blue but, for my money, if you’re going to do it you’ve got to do it bold. I’m definitely going for gold.
