The trend for eccentric wallpapers is huge this year in interiors – but not just for feature walls (so early Noughties). Instead I love the look on two, three or all walls (even put wallpaper on the ceiling if you keep the walls in a matching paint colour). Two of my favourites are from The Graduate Collection which showcases products from exciting new designers coming out of UK universities. The Dachshund wallpaper would be perfect in a hallway, boot room or similar small space; while the Marie Antoinette design would look great in a bedroom, large bathroom or dining room (look closely, and you’ll see how quirky/eccentric it is!). I think they’re genius.
