SIMPLICITY COLLECTION Delicate sophisticated chalky wallpapers and co-odinating paint by Albany Traditions for a relaxed, comfortable and tranquil lifeâ€¦ 2 WALLPAPERDIRECT
Printing techniques have improved so much and the intricate details the artists create are glorious – and paste the wall – so much easier for the inexperienced. I do hang my own wallpaper – my problem is not enough walls! Albany Simplicity has a lovely chalky soft effect and I have chosen the Amelia yellow in the guest bedroom in my own home. It brings sunshine inside whatever the weather outside. Next the kitchen/dining space – what to choose!

FARROW & BALL
Farrow & Ball
Decorating Small Spaces When decorating smaller spaces, considering where to start and how to choose the perfect colour can often be a little daunting so we asked Farrow & Ball where to start
harlotte Cosby, head of creative at craftsmen in paint and paper, Farrow & Ball, shares some top tips for decorating small rooms and bringing the walls within to life. She said “Before painting your room it’s important to consider the amount of natural light and the direction the room faces, as this will have a significant impact on the appearance of each colour.” She adds: “We often think the only way to create light and space in a small room is to paint it crisp white, but try using an off-white for a softer, more interesting alternative. Warm, yellow toned neutrals such as White Tie or Matchstick are best for reflecting light. Using a single colour in a room is a clever way to create more space. With no point of reference and without contrasts, you’re less aware of where things stop and start. Try applying just one colour such as Vardo or Pitch Blue over the picture rail and up onto the ceiling to make the room feel higher and give an illusion of loftiness. Painting your own dado is another brilliant way of creating a more spacious feel with just two colours. Try painting the bottom half of the wall with darker shades such as Railings or Blue Ground to really anchor the room. By brushing on a lighter paint such as Purbeck Stone or Ammonite above, you’ll find the paler colour of the wall will then flow into the ceiling to help delineate your small space.” Renowned for its depth of colour and rich pigments, each of Farrow & Ball’s 132 paints respond extraordinarily to the changes of light throughout each day to create a uniquely beautiful look in spaces both large and small. 20 WALLPAP ERDIRECT.COM

Its iconic, hotel-chic fabrics and wallcoverings are now firmly established as trend-setters within the premium interiors world. Taking the concept of couture for walls into a new dimension, this exceptionally polished collection has been inspired both by architecture and by abstract patterns in Nature. Claire Vallis, Design Director, expands: “This launch really encapsulates the cosmopolitan spirit of sleek, boutique hotels and glamorous townhouses, whilst still retaining its approachability. Targeted
at both the domestic and the contract markets, the fabrics and wallcoverings exude an architectural, structural feel, but in an accessible, understandable way.” The Momentum Wallcoverings 4 collection has a wealth of extravagant textures coupled with sparkle and grit effects: the wallpapers create the perfect companion to the fabrics, whilst making a profound statement in their own right. The colour palette is a usable combination of organic shades and fashion hues: ranging from the subtlest oyster, pearl, and chalk shades through the mid tone slate and jet and arriving boldly at paprika, teal and emerald.

Think white brick wallpaper, white-washed wood effects as well as true black and white wallpaper designs. And adding a collection of black and white artworks is an easy way to bring this look together. What makes this scheme work so well is the contrast, between a very dark colour and a very light one; black and white is the ultimate, cool, sophisticated palette. You can expand this trend to suit your own needs adding splashes of colour. And if you don’t want to be quite so bold then choose some colour. Contrasting dark chocolate brown and palest blues, or deep charcoal grey and pale gold can make a really beautiful effect.

Louise Tod, Dulux’s senior global colour and design manager, said: “We’ve worked hard to carefully curate the Heritage colour range and are proud to share a collection with beautifully subtle, tonal or statement colour combinations in a contemporary home. Expanding the selection of neutral shades such as Flax Seed and Turtledove Grey nods softly to the enduring popularity of subtle shades within interiors.

Noukku named after a Finnish wild flower species is a joyous collection of floral and bird motif wallpapers. Scion Designer Hannah Bowen explains how Noukku evolved: “I wanted to create an approachable collection oozing with personality. The designs originated as collages, with lots of ‘cutting

and sticking’ to create a bold graphic look, but still retaining the playful nature of paper cuts. I also felt texture was extremely important, so Noukku contains a number of ‘homespun’, tactile fabrics.” We just love the cheeky ‘Barnie Owl’ design and the curvaceous ‘Lintu’ bird is totally adorable. Nine wallpaper designs in a range of colours: foxglove, sage and forest, butterscotch and dandelion; slate and biscuit; gecko, pacific and glacier, satsuma and sky; watermelon, flamingo and lemonade; honey, cocoa and slate, which sound good enough to eat!

Spring Time Sherbet Shades:
Synonymous with spring, sherbet shades are perfect for revitalising the home for those lighter months. Light and refreshing hues of purples, pinks, yellows and greens effortlessly coordinate and gracefully introduce pops of colour without being overpowering. These colours can uplift smaller spaces or bring a cool, calming aesthetic to larger rooms.
The Sanderson design studio, explain how to recreate this stunning paint ombré effect:
‘The watercolour ombré effect is a modern painting practice that creates stunning accent walls. Plum tones traditionally add depth and weight to a wall, but applying this technique to a deep shade gives it a softer, lighter aesthetic. To create this look we chose our ‘Meadow Violet’ and ‘Kingly Grey’ shades, the lighter colour was painted onto the wall first, then the second darker tone was applied to the top before it was sponged and blended downwards so that the colours bled together. These amethyst tones create a whimsical and dream-like bedroom scheme with rustic furniture, neutral tones and relaxed bedding.’

LONDON WALLPAPERS IV: ARCHIVE CHIC FOR WALLS Breathing new life into archive designs, Little Greene has once again delved into the English Heritage archives for historic designs that can be successfully adapted for 21st century interiors. This glorious compendium of authentic motifs have been rescaled and recoloured with 5 designs in new shades. 7 completely new additions to the brand have also been added, including new colourways of our favourite parrot design, ‘Great Ormond Street’ and the new ‘Upper Brook Street’ with its engraved style woodland and bold red hot poker flowers in the foreground. Managing Director David Mottershead explains: “We take our role as ‘custodians’ of these archive motifs very seriously: the original wallpaper fragments are treated with the reverence they deserve and we take huge pleasure and pride in bringing them to life again. Careful use of colour is key to creating a seamless and harmonious union of old with new. The resulting wallpapers can grace the walls of contemporary or traditional properties, used on one or all four walls, with effortless ease.”

Let our resident decorating expert help with your decorating dilemmas.
What adhesive should I use for the best result? Paul, Milton Keynes The vast majority of our papers need tub adhesive. In many cases, there is a recommended adhesive from the Supplier, and we would always encourage you to use that. However, if there is no suggestion we recommend Albany Super Smooth tub paste. It is the perfect consistency (do not add water) and gives good results. The strength of the adhesive is important and it is critical to remove any from the front of the paper before it dries. Albany Super Smooth can be used for traditional papers or paste the wall. We also recommend Albany Concentrated wallcoverings adhesive, which comes in a concentrated liquid form and you just add water to obtain the correct consistency.
I’ve seen a lot about the trend ‘hygge’ in magazines. What would you recommend to create this look in my home? Gaynor, Lewes
There is no literal translation for the Danish word hygge, it is more about promoting a sense of wellbeing and calm in your life. So a subtle backdrop, perhaps a ‘faux effect’ wallcovering such as animal skins, brick or a wood effect would be the perfect expression of this trend or a paper with a soft chalky finish like our ‘bark effect’ Simplicity Erin design.
Can I paper over existing wallpaper? Hannah, Newport You can but ‘should you?’ is another question! Ideally you should always strip the existing wallpaper, repair and clean the wall to create the best possible surface for your new wallpaper. (There are some Vinyls which have a base layer and this means you can strip the colour/top layer off the wall, leaving a smooth surface however it is advisable to stripe this away and start again from fresh.) Professionals alway apply a new lining paper and if you are out of practice with hanging paper start with a lining paper first. It is the perfect surface to put your top paper on for the perfect result. There is a ‘paste the wall’ lining paper which is the easiest of all!
