The amazing thing about wallpaper is its versatility. Whether you choose to use a single paper to decorate all four walls, or decide to combine multiple designs together, there are so many options for you to pick from. In this post today, we are going to look at some of our favourite wallpaper pairings and what makes them work so well together.
The first of our featured pairs is Rasch’s Grey and White Star Wallpapers. Both colourways of this stunning star print paper are among our bestselling designs! The easily to apply papers feature a repeating large star motif in a soft grey or white. The combination of white and pastel grey colours will give your room a light and airy feel and the neutrality of the colour palette and patterns makes them perfect for a range of rooms including lounges, bedrooms, studies, hallways and nurseries.
If you are looking to decorate a child’s bedroom, nursery or playroom, then we have the perfect paper pairing for you! The Arthouse Believe In Unicorns Glitter Wallpaper works beautifully with the brand’s gentle Glitterati Pink Glitter Wallpaper. With an embossed textured paper that has been infused with brilliant silver glitter particles, the Glitterati paper’s delicate pastel pink is the ideal paper to frame the Believe in Unicorns design and create a truly stunning feature wall. The Believe in Unicorns paper features a fabulous collage style design with an assortment of unicorn silhouettes alongside inspiration quotes in a range of pastel candy colours.
The neutral colours of these two designs work together to create a chic and stylish finish. The Journeys Elephant Grove Wallpaper features beautifully detailed illustrations of majestic elephants surrounded by tall palm trees and wild birds. The sketch style image is printed in a delicate charcoal grey and is finished with subtle metallic highlights. The Journeys Arrow Weave Wallpaper perfectly complements the Elephant Grove with a contemporary chevron zig zag pattern. Both papers are also paste the wall designs, making them easier than ever to hang.
The above examples are just three of thousands of possibilities! Just like in these examples, when picking your own perfect pairs, make sure you choose colours which complement each other and patterns which don’t clash. If one wallpaper is very detailed and busy then perhaps consider picking a plain or lightly patterned design for the second paper. Also take into consideration the natural light and size of your room. Two dark coloured papers could be quite daunting in a small or poorly lit room, whereas a feature wall decorated with a darker paper and framed with a white or light design could instead elongate the room.

Escape To The Chateau - Chateau de La Motte Husson
If you’ve seen the hit TV series Escape To The Chateau, then you may already be familiar with Angel Strawbridge’s work. The Chateau wallpaper range is her latest gift to the interior design world and the highly anticipated collection has not disappointed. Since its arrival only a few weeks ago, it has proven to be exceptionally popular and is fast becoming a favourite on our site.
The TV series itself follows designer Angel Strawbridge and her engineer husband Dick as they renovate a 19th century French chateau, bringing together natural and vintage styles to restore the beautiful building and create their dream home. Angel’s wallpaper range is directly inspired by her experience and features four stunning designs which we will explore in greater detail in this post.
The Chateau – Teal Heron Wallpaper
The first of the papers that we are going to look at is The Chateau Teal Heron design. A reoccurring theme in The Chateau collection is strong nature driven designs which can be seen in this range. The design itself is inspired by the heron that visits the family’s moat every morning which has formed the basis of the reoccurring heron motif of the paper. The graceful birds entwine with wild reeds to form an art deco style pattern. This is overlaid on a beautiful teal backdrop with soft silver metallic highlights.
Grey Chateau Heron Wallpaper
This stylish and popular design is also available in a stunning grey colourway. This colourway also features subtle metallic highlights and has a smooth matte finish. The paper itself is easier than ever to apply as it is a paste the wall design. As with the teal pattern above, to see a close-up of the design, simply hover over its room image.
Garden Inspired Wallpaper Chateau Potagerie
Next up is The Chateau Potagerie Wallpaper. The truly beautiful and detailed pattern combines an art deco theme with nature and garden inspired motifs. Set on a soft cream backdrop, the design features bees, wild flowers, herbs and vegetables in natural complimenting tones.

Below you can see an example of a room using this wallpaper. The brilliant thing about this design is that it is equally as stunning when used to create a striking feature wall as it is when used to decorate the entire room. In the below example, the walls are all papered with the Potagerie design and this is joined by splashes of complimenting colours through the curtains, furniture and accessories.
Angel Strawbridge Museum Wallpaper
This stylish design depicts the spectacular museum wall created by Angel in the TV series. While searching the 19th century Chateau de la Motte Husson, Angel discovered boxes of antique wallpaper offcuts including beautiful hand painted pieces by French artists. From here she used the paper to create the chateau’s Wallpaper Museum which is the inspiration for the design below.
The wallpaper features a patchwork style made up of a variety of vintage patterns and colours cut into elegant diamond shapes. The triangles include floral, striped and bird themed patterns which are stylishly arranged to create this high-quality paper. Also a paste the wall design, this paper is easy to hang and is a stylish addition to any home.

Whilst last year was all about creating feature walls, this year it is pretty evenly matched, giving you even more choice when deciding on how to decorate your little one’s room. Whether you opt for a feature wall or not, one option to consider would be to use two complimenting wallpapers together, such as with the Ballerina Wallpaper image featured above. For the perfect on-trend nursery, match light and pastel tones together and consider other popular motifs such as adorable animals. Don’t forget to accessorise the room by pulling out key colours from your children's wallpaper and matching these in your furniture. Our ultimate style tip is to get on board with the latest children’s trends and introduce a selection of fashionable wooden toys to complete your stylish design.
