Puzzling wallpaper

For die hard fans of the classic word search puzzle, what could be better than decorating a wall with wordsearch wallpaper!

The wallpaper is digitally printed in the UK and can be customised, so you can choose the selection of words and letters you’d like to appear on it – a great way of creating home decor with a personal touch.

The made-to-order wordsearch wallpaper costs £150 from Identity Papers. Samples are available for £3.

The biggest problem could be resisting the urge to circle or cross through the words as you find them….

Feature Wall Ideas: Quote wall stickers

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Various home decor products feature quotes, but it’s one of those things that’s best used in moderation – too many quotes all over the place can be overkill. But one of the ways in which quotes can be used successfully in home decoration is in creating a feature wall.

When the words ‘feature wall’ are mentioned, it can conjure up images of a wall that you’ve spent ages decorating to perfection. But when wall stickers are used, the hours spent labouring on getting it perfect are vastly reduced.

To get a quote on a wall no longer requires a super steady hand and good handwriting to painstakingly paint every letter on – ready made wall stickers do the wording job for you. All you have to do, is choose an appropriate wall space and apply the stickers.

Whether you want to create a quote feature wall in your living room, bedroom, hall, study, kitchen or another room of your home, then here are 15 ideas to inspire you.

Create a feature wall with bookshelf wallpaper

Young and Battaglia wallpaper

Vintage bookshelf wallpaper

In an ideal world, I’d have wall-to-wall bookshelves in the living room (and I have no shortage of books to fill them with), but as there’s not quite room to achieve this, bookshelf wallpaper is a great alternative.

Bookshelf and book themed wallpaper has become very popular, with several designers creating book-ish wallcoverings. It’s ideal for using to create a feature wall in your home and the bookshelf design works in even the smallest spaces.

For feature walls, you could have one wall papered in the bookshelf wallpaper, use it in the alcoves either side of a fireplace to give the impression of bookshelves, or simply use a small strip or section of it on a wall to add interest and design.

The vintage bookshelf wallpaper shown above is designed by Young & Battaglia. The textured wallpaper gives the impression that your walls are lined with bookshelves and piled with stacks of books.

The wallpaper is made in England, is 55cm wide and is sold in three metre rolls. It’s available to purchase for £70 a roll from Bouf.

For a slightly different look, the same design is available in white (£70 from Studiomold).

Bookshelf wallpaper designs by Deborah Bowness

Deborah Bowness bookshelf wallpaper

Designer Deborah Bowness has also created some fantastic bookshelf design wallpaper. Her Genuine Fake Bookshelf and Original Genuine Bookshelf wallpaper designs are both very realistic and would transform a wall of your home into an instant bookcase.

One single, hand-printed drop of Deborah Bowness wallpaper costs from £169 from Caravan Style, or you can order direct from Deborah Bowness.

Tracey Kendall book wallpaper How to use book wallpaper in your home

Tracey Kendall has done away with the need for shelves in her book-themed wallpaper – instead, the paperback books are simply stacked together.

The multicoloured spines of the books not only add an element of colour into the wallpaper, but they also provide fascinating viewing, as you can’t resist looking at the book titles to see if there’s anything you’ve read or want to read (yes, it features real book titles).

The hand-screenprinted stacked paperback wallpaper costs £128 per roll from Anthropologie.

Bookshelf design wallpaper from Wallpaper Direct

Ex Libris wallpaper

For a slightly more traditional look, this Ex Libris bookshelf wallpaper is designed by Cole and Sons and forms part of their Fornasetti Collection.

The design features a library of books etched in black on white, with beige shelving. The books are nicely finished off with gold detail on the book titles – just like you’d see on old, vintage books.

The Ex Libris bookshelf wallpaper is £78 per roll from Wallpaper Direct.

Have you used bookshelf wallpaper in your home? We’d love to hear what you’ve done with it!
