honestly? i’m not a wallpaper person. painted walls are more my kind of thing, but i am starting to crave the atmosphere that a wallpaper creates in a room as the days are getting colder, so deciding to take part in national wallpaper week might just change my mind about it.
focusing on the theme, myself and the other half don’t have a huge social itinerary on sundays. it typically consists of cat snuggles, cleaning, comfort food and a glass of gin before preparing for the week ahead. until project annex is complete, we simply don’t have the space to have friends over, so one thing we would love to eventually have is a bar area to home our (many) bottles of gin and throw a little gathering.
alcohol and interiors, pure heaven! take a look at this moodboard for inspiration…
i’ve opted for the simple texture wallpaper ‘rhapsody charcoal’ from the graham & brown superfresco easy range to channel a moody vibe. the not-quite-black finish of this wallpaper is the perfect palette for almost any interior style. i’ve pushed for a little feminine edge by accenting with rose gold/copper barware, a playful handlettered piece of art and washed out flowers.
