The cure for “itchy feet”
We’ve all suffered from a case of “itchy feet” at some point in our life. For the perpetual traveller, that itch never goes away. The idea of laying down roots can strike fear into the heart of someone who has fallen head over heels for the laid-back nomadic lifestyle of those on a never ending O.E where the solution to life’s problems is to “pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile.”

When the time comes to settle down and make your house into a home, you needn’t give up that sense of adventure, the memories shouldn’t be supressed in dust covered photo albums at the back of a cupboard. Your own home can be dressed to recreate that round-the-world experience with the all new Passport collection from York Wallcoverings.

Sail the seas, ride the waves, explore the world. North, South, East and West. Images of the world’s most exotic destinations are complemented by stories of the journey itself…. beauty abounds… without leaving your home… it all starts with Passport.

Hidden Richness, timeless style
Life: ever noticed that it seems to be moving faster and faster as the years go by? People are busier, trends pass us by in a blur and the weeks and months seem to roll together whilst the demands of our bustling lifestyles take over. Amidst this whirlwind, these demands begin to clash against our desires to keep up with fashion trends, express our own individual style and find time to relax and to create a sanctuary within our home that allows us to do this. In this modern fast-paced era, longevity of style is the key to a low maintenance yet trendy interior look. A style that will not date for years to come despite evolving trends and that only requires the minimum time taken from our busy schedule. Enter – the all new Hidden Richness collection from Grand Deco. The Hidden Richness Collection reflects trends in modern wallcoverings for different worlds of style and spirit. Soft translucent reflections of light are echoed in the soft pastel pearl combinations. Dreams of mogul palace interiors bathed in cool dawn light create a combination that seduces the senses of a wide audience.

Add style to your walls whilst maintaining a subtle balance so as not to overpower your space and maintain a look that that will withstand the test of time.

Dressed to impress
The dictionary defines elegant as something gracefully refined and dignified. The word itself is synonymous with class, style and exquisite taste that each of us possess in our own unique way. It is this style and taste that we express visually in the way we present ourselves and, just as importantly, the way we present our homes.

For those who identify with such refinement and class, personal taste and lifestyle will mirror the dignity and grace that encompasses all things elegant. Social gatherings dot the calendar throughout the year with hosts opening the doors of their proudly decorated homes to cherished guests and into an atmosphere of sophisticated conversation and fine dining. The first impression created by the fine décor of the host’s home sets the scene for an evening of enjoyment.

Driven by the success of Elegance, Edition II presents a pleasant understatement in design and colour palette. Tradition meets country charm to create a rustic ambiance. Leafy botanicals complement wide block stripes, large checks and baroque ornamentation to give this collection the broadest design appeal. Delicate grasses and embossed branches with gentle mother-of-pearl shimmer form a playful contrast that coordinates with the designs to exude warmth and cosiness throughout the house.

The designers of the new Inspire wallpaper collection found inspiration in tactile effects and architectural shapes, such as the Bird’s Nest stadium in Beijing. The various layers within the wallcovering and the use of metallic accents create a constant play of light, which seems to breathe life into walls.

Silhouettes are once again at the forefront of fashion. This beautifully simple design style is the inspiration behind Organza. Ornamental shapes, chandeliers, trailing vines and stylised florals are found throughout the collection, evoking thoughts of a bygone era, but with a modern twist.

Accent walls are increasingly being used in interior schemes to bring new elements of focus and style to a space. Make a statement based on today’s trends, then change it as often as you like. Walltrends II is a ‘paste the wall’ wallpaper collection – easy to hang and easy to remove.

Introduce a little traditional elegance with a contemporary twist into your home and open the door to existing possibilities for your own interiors with the Bloomsbury House wallpaper collection. Dress your walls with stunning accent features that co-ordinate perfectly with their companion papers.

For the successor to the very successful Brocante collection, designers looked to elegant floral motifs from the past. The various layers in the new Brocante wallcovering range create a remarkable 3D effect and give the collection its rich look. The metallic accents in the designs contribute to this aura of luxury. The result is chic and stylish, romantic and slightly retro.
