I’m a big fan of feature walls and we have a couple dotted around the house, with one in the bambino’s bedroom. Wallpapering the entire room can make it all feel a bit busy and closed in but a feature wall opens up the room and creates the illusion of space. As usual, I have been perusing the wonderful archives of Living Etc and they’ve provided the inspiration for this post.
To get the look:
The wallpaper is from Cath Kidston who also do other retro wallpapers if you’re not of the boating kind. They come in 10m rolls and have a wipeable finish. Â£22 from Cath Kidston.
If you want to add in some of the other touches from the room, I found a very similar coat stand at Furniture in Fashion reduced from Â£49.95 to Â£29.95. This is also the type of thing, if you’re of the thrifty/patient/bargain hunter sort that you may find at your charity shop, local car boot sale, or local furniture store.
I didn’t manage to track down something very similar to the bedside cabinet although…I did find the sexier silver version at The Holding Company although it will set you back Â£135 making you tempted to put it in your own room… I reckon trawling a few smaller furniture stores, auction houses, or even charity furniture stores could turn up a steal.
