Oh, darling, let me whisk you into the opulent and ever-so-vibrant world of wallpaper art—a trend that has stylishly pirouetted back into the spotlight, much like a long-lost love rekindling its flame. It’s not just a backdrop; it’s a statement, a declaration of style, a whisper (or shout) of who you are to every guest who graces your home.

Imagine transforming a beloved day dress into a permanent fixture of your decor. It’s not just wallpaper; it’s a conversation, a rare glimpse into the essence of your personal style narrative. During my escapades to various castles and manors across the UK, I often find myself dreaming of the ultimate fusion of wardrobe and wall. And let me tell you, nothing screams ‘unique’ quite like a TikTok video transforming into a digital mood board for your bespoke wallpaper print.

Dolce & Gabbana

Let’s not beat around the bush; when Dior and Dolce & Gabbana ventured into the realm of interior design, it was a game-changer. Picture this: the same sumptuous fabrics that once sashayed down the runway now grace your walls, transforming your living space into a walk-in wardrobe of chic, block-printed memories. I mean, if my vintage green dress made in Italy could talk, it would tell tales of luxury car rides and whispered secrets, now forever captured on my very own walls.

Wallpaper For Photoshoots

Me at Cotswold House Hotel & Spa in Chipping Campden. As for me, my very first venture into the world of wallpaper was a room swathed in gold, a nod to the romantic Feng Shui of my dreams, back in my first Victorian home in 1998. It was more than just decoration; it was an affirmation of style, a testament to the power of personal space in expressing the very essence of who we are.

Unlock Your Creativity Within Your Walls

Sleep With Busy Wallpaper


I must confess, my heart holds a special place for the understated elegance of small-scale wallpaper in a cozy bathroom. It’s like wrapping yourself in a warm hug, courtesy of designs that whisper tales of comfort and nostalgia. And who could forget the resurgence of wallpaper borders? A nod to the 18th-century charm, these delightful details add a layer of history and elegance, seamlessly blending the past with the present.


Venice Pallazzo Wallpaper

Now, if we’re talking luxury, Venice is the couture of wallpaper trends. Having personally reviewed numerous hotels that were once regal palazzos, the impact of a well-chosen wallpaper can be nothing short of transformative. Take Hotel Heureka, for instance, where the walls tell a story, not just of Italian regality, but of personal triumphs, of moments captured in time, reflecting back at me as I snap a selfie, looking every bit the vintage Venetian queen I feel inside. This is clever because behind the wallpaper was a wardrobe. Perfect for me to display my made-in-Italy handbags.

Wallpaper A 3D Effect

For those of you seeking that three-dimensional allure, wallpaper trumps paint every time. It’s about texture, depth, and the kind of rustic charm that turns a simple villa into a storytelling haven. And let’s not forget our little ones; their rooms become playgrounds of imagination with the right playful patterns adorning their walls.



Border Wallpaper

You see, my fascination with this trend isn’t newfound. No, it’s been a long-standing affair, sparked by the grandeur and pomp of British royalty as portrayed in the Netflix sensation, The Crown. There’s something irresistibly charming about enveloping yourself in the same opulence that defines the United Kingdom’s rich culture. And thanks to a certain global situation that had us all nesting more than ever, our homes have become our castles, with wallpaper serving as the royal decree of personal taste.

So, as you contemplate diving into the resplendent world of wallpaper art, remember this: it’s not about following a trend. It’s about creating a sanctuary that reflects your most cherished memories, your dreams, and yes, even your favorite fashion moments. After all, in the grand tapestry of life, shouldn’t the walls of our homes serve as the canvas for our most beautiful stories? Let’s not just decorate spaces; let’s infuse them with life, with love, and with a dash of opulent humor. Because, darling, in the end, our homes are but a reflection of the grand, glorious, and sometimes whimsical opera that is our lives.
