I often dream of living in an all white house but wonder about the practicalities and if it might feel a little cold. However, the owners of this Danish home had no qualms about going all white to create a light abundant living space. If you look closely you will see it is not completely white, antique wooden furniture and other materials have aged to a gentle patina of warmer tones. Far from cold and sterile, this living area provides a comfortable space for the family to relax.

Unlike the fashion industry where colours and designs change seasonally and we are constantly replacing our wardrobe to keep up with the latest trends, interior design is a little more sedate. As consumers we take time to invest in our homes and we are usually dictated to by our personal style rather than a passing trend. Whether our personal choice of interior is contemporary, rustic, industrial, French or classic, we look for products that portray our unique taste. Personally my taste leans towards 'classic', timeless designs of yesteryear. I love French and English styles, so I was excited to learn about a new range of classically designed wallpapers.
