Decorate for December

The countdown to Christmas is well and truly on and with December just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to get your home ready for the festive season. Whether it’s your turn to host this year or you simply want a calming space to relax in, we know how daunting decorating can be so if you’re looking for a specific product or just need some inspiration, this handy blog post has lots of hints and tips for every stage of the decorating process.

Sanderson Juniper Pine Fabric, £59 per / metre

Inspiration | We have the largest online selection of designer fabrics and wallpapers in the UK, with almost every design, colour and texture imaginable. But whilst choice is great, we also understand how daunting a selection that size can be. If you just don’t know where to start, we have lots of sources of inspiration on our website, including our Get the Look section which highlights key interior trends and helps you recreate them at home. Perhaps you’d like to create a timeless nautical scheme or maybe you’re going bold and brave with terrazzo; either way, our Get the Look pages show you all the fabrics and wallpapers you’ll need in one easy-to-shop place. Our blog is also regularly updated with posts about key trends, new brands and collection launches.

Sample Service | Once you’re feeling inspired, we recommend you order samples of the fabrics and wallpaper styles you like. Samples are essential for showing you how a product looks in real life, especially if you’re colour matching to fit your scheme. Not only do samples show you the true colour of your chosen fabric or wallpaper but they also let you see the scale of the print, as well as its texture. It’s easy to order samples – when you find a fabric or wallpaper you like, just click the ‘add sample’ button and we’ll add it to your shopping bag.

Evesham Deer Wallpaper, £75 per / roll

Wallpaper Advice | If you’re happy with your chosen sample, you can use our Wallpaper Calculator to find out how many rolls you’ll need for your project. Simply enter your wall width and height and our calculator will tell you how many rolls you need to order – it even makes allowances, such as pattern repeat and trim, for you.

Fabric Advice | If you’re ordering fabric to make curtains or blinds, our useful Measuring Guides show you how to measure for the final width and length, whilst our Curtain Fabric Quantity Calculator will tell you how much fabric you need to order. If you’re making your own curtains, our How to Make Curtains guide gives you step-by-step instructions for creating pencil pleat curtains at home.
