Next brick wall design wallpaper

Affordable textured wallpaper brick wall

Brick design wallpaper

Textured effect wallpapers, like the log cabin stacked wood mural we featured recently, are all the rage at the moment.

If it’s a brick wall effect you’re after, then here’s a great wallpaper design that’s super affordable.

The bricks wallpaper is from Next and helps create the effect of a well worn textured brick wall.

As you’d expect with a normal wall, some of the bricks look more worn than others, with pale shades running through them, whilst others have darker patches. Compared to some other similar wallpapers, these bricks have got just the right balance of colour to create a realistic brick wall effect.

The brick wallpaper is ideal for creating a feature wall – a whole room papered in this might be too much. At only £15 a roll from Next, it’s not going to break the bank if you want to give it a try!

Farfalla butterfly wallpaper

If you thought butterfly wallpaper wasn’t for you, take a look at Osborne and Little’s Farfalla wallpaper.

Featuring brightly coloured and wonderfully detailed butterflies flitting across a black background with embellished fern leaves, the wallpaper looks stunning used to create a feature wall.

The dramatic black background works so well and helps the detail on the butterfly designs stand out even more.

The Farfalla wallpaper (‘farfalla’ being the Italian word for ‘butterfly’) is designed by Nina Campbell for Osborne and Little and is now available to purchase at John Lewis for £54 per roll.

If the black is too dark for you, then the same design is also available in a light champagne.
