I have never really bothered all that much with our bedroom in any house we have lived in. I much prefer to jazz up everyone elses rooms before our own, but this time I decided it was time that I made a simple change. The Graham and Brown website has such a massive choice but I knew I wanted a grey theme. We painted the chimney breast wall grey so wanted a soft glamourous paper to compliment the paint and the Julien MacDonald Glitz Soft Grey Pearl paper ticked all the boxes.
The first thing
I my husband would say about this wallpaper is – it’s horizontal. It kinds threw him a little after years of hanging it vertically but he soon got to grips and needed a bit of help to hold it whilst it was going across as usually it hangs down freely but honestly, it was’t that much of an issue.
My husband was tasked with the decorating – hence the lack of before/during photos (sorry!) but as you can see it has transformed the bare white wall that seemed very small and completely changed the look of the whole room.
The paper itself is actually sparkly which again I didn’t realise until it arrived but it’s a very subtle glitter which I adore and makes it just gorgeous when the light catches it.
The wallpaper is £20 per roll and I would definitely say it looks much more expensive than that. It is a good quality paper that didn’t rip and was easy to apply. The stripes being horizontal makes the space behind our bed seem much bigger giving the illusion thanks to the horizontal stripe.
Disclosure – we were sent the wallpaper in exchange for this review. All words, opinions and photographs are my own
