House To Home

Home is Where the Heart Is

Creating your perfect home is all about making the space your own and creating a warm and inviting place for friends and loved ones.  With such a lot of choice these days it can sound like a daunting task but the trick is to start at the most crucial design point and pick your wallpaper.  From here you can personalise and accessories to suit your taste.  A great example of individual and personalising wallpaper to create the ultimate finish and homely feel can be seen in some of our amazing customer images.  This blog post today will showcase some of our customer images using our fabulous wallpaper and will use these to aid with style tips on accessorising these wallpapers.

Flamingo Wallpaper Pink Rasch

One way to make a house your own is to choose designs which reflect you and not be afraid to select a wallpaper which is bold and bright to create a truly striking effect.  An example of someone who has stylishly achieved this is one of our Instagram customers @diy_addict_146 who uses our Rasch Pink Flamingo Wallpaper to create this fabulous decor.  The customer pairs the busy pattern with a geometric floor rug but breaks up the busy scene with plain furniture and a white skirting board.

White Washed Wood Wallpaper

The second of our customer images was sent in by Ellie Ransom.  Using our Arthouse White Washed Wood Wallpaper she creates a cosy and classic style for her bedroom.  The key to creating a homely feel is to have a stylish but personal feel which she introduces through complimenting colours in her accessories.  The brown throw and the detailed cushion give rise to a feeling of a stylish and cosy wood cabin.  The shabby chic wallpaper design creates a realistic distressed wood look for added rustic style.
