Wooden wallpaper is a clever way to create a cosy log cabin in the middle of the woods. If you think of any winter scene in your head, you probably picture wooden walls which create a warm, rustic vibe and a fire crackling away in the background.  Your feet are also up, and you have a nice hot drink in your hands. Using wood effect wallpaper is a quick and easy way to get that exact vibe just in time for Christmas!

Finish the look with...

  • A cosy fireplace
  • Warm blankets
  • A wooden coffee table
  • A soft fabric sofa

3. Try woodland animals wallpaper to create a home fit for a winter fairytale

If you've ever watched the Simpson's Movie, then you'll remember the scene when the family moves to Alaska and into a wooden cabin. Well in that scene, they are surrounded by adorable animated woodland animals, making it romantic, wintery and cosy before all the madness happens. Well, you can recreate that vibe by using woodland animals wallpaper, either as a feature wall (e.g., around your fireplace), or all over the room. The wallpaper also features various wild leaves, which could help to transform your room into  a cute and romantic Christmas film.

To complete the look, just add...

  • Wooden furniture to the room
  • White paint to the doors and skirtng boards
  • A white fluffy rug
  • A warm hot chocolate and netflix
