Rustic Walls

If you’re lucky enough to have had the foresight to keep your half-stripped walls and peeling paintwork, then you’re already a step ahead. However, if like the rest of us you chucked out the old and added a quick fix with a pot of paint, then let us show you the easy way to turn back the years. No mess, no dust, no splinters in the carpet – our brand new wallpaper collections save all the hassle but keep 100% of the style. We brought you rustic, farmhouse chic this summer – now let us introduce the updated trend.

Both Harlequin and Clarke & Clarke have recently got to grips with this look, offering you the tantalisingly smooth patterns of bare plaster in a variety of neutral shades. Put the steam tools away and instead put up their new Papier design or Alabaster for fuss-free alternatives. Think vintage royalty, understated palace walls like the stone effect Andrew Martin, Camelot design or simply a lovely subtle pattern for any room. Create interesting contrast by using gold or chrome lighting and picture frames.

Faux wooden panelled walls have become a trend of their own through 2013. These rustic wallpapers are great for achieving an industrial feel.

Bare walls have had a recent renaissance: in city apartments with unfinished brick and with poured concrete kitchens. Untreated wooden furniture and strong metal shapes go hand in hand against a faux-plaster wall. Cover the room with velvet cushions or chunky knitted throws and you’ll have the perfect balance of well-worn and luxurious.
