My ever-present wallpaper addiction

Since covering my bathroom with wallpaper last month, I have become obsessed. I was warned that this would happen. While I don’t have any tattoos I imagine there’s a similar feeling: once you have done it, all you can I see is bare expanses of potential canvas. Every time I encounter an unfamiliar space, I can’t help but fantasise what a difference floor to ceiling wallpaper would make.

Here are some of my favourite wallpapered rooms at the moment.

    I love these wallpaper examples Kate, they remind me of the old days when I spent my days looking at 18th Century English interiors…. Look forward to the chinoiserie! x

    I was wondering where you bought the toilet? How does it work without a tank?
